Bottle. Pours a strawberry red with a thin white head. Strong aroma of vinegar and wild berry. Taste is tart and fruity. Bit of a strawberry and kefir taste. Very potent flavors, tartness stings the tongue a bit. Incredibly complex offering. I like.

Very good. Wonderful red colour and nice prickly carbonation. Well balanced and complex. Sweet, sour and bitter are all there and each have their moment of prominence. a good funky lambic flavor and of course the natural flavor of the cherries. Long dry finish.

Very clear ruby red with some pinkish foam that leaves light lacing. Aroma is musty, fruity and quite funky. A little cheesy. Extremely complex. Very dry palate with excellent balance of tart cherry and lambic flavors. I didn’t think that I liked fruit lambic until I had this one.

Really really really wonderful cherry tart aroma....a little to much in the flavor cuz the tartness looses some punch. just a little too sweet. but other than that very very good beer

Troebel rood bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog, fruitig kersen. Iets te zuur om goed te smaken.

poech73 (178) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Sample @Quintessence 2014. Kriek qui se distingue par son caractère aérien du froment où le fruité des cerises exacerbe l’acidité des brett. Le corps malté moyen développe plutôt des saveurs de noyau que de chair du fruit. Pourtant elle offe un nez assez fleuri, herbacé peu amer avec quasi pas d’effervescence. Dommage cette acidité qui agresse le palais. Bof :(

tandembrauer (83) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle bought in Brussles. Hazy reddish with pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, fresh and fruity. Cherry taste prominent, but not overpowering. Distinct sour lambic taste with slightly medicine bitterness. Almost no sweetness.

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy red with a pink frothy/fluffy head. Aroma has sweet red berries at first, then cherries and tart notes. Aroma has cereals/pilsner malt, tart cherries, wood. Thin, low carbonation, dry. Dry woody after taste.
Elegant, yet simple.
