MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured dark muddy blood with a small, pink, frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma had almost perfume like characteristics with notes of roses, violets, crushed raspberries, sour cherries, wild yeast and salt water. Flavor was extremely tart with a massive acidic bite; gooseberry skins, sour cherries, red wine vinegar and light notes of oysters & salty brine. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/spritzig mouthfeel, ever-so slightly syrupy texture and a superb length finish. Amazingly delicate yet infinitely complex.

Esto es un regalo para los sentidos, preciosa en copa de champán, olor a tarta de cereza, color rojo oscuro y sabor impactantemente ácido.

AirForceHops (5781) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. 2014 vintage thanks to AdamChan, beautiful violet, purple color. Aroma is a deep cherry, blackberry, and .

Flavor is just awesome. Tart finish but not overly so. Totally natural in every way, not artificial or chemical sourness, or vinaigrette or vinegar notes anyplace in the taste. Most American can’t even come close to making a Kriek this nice. Totally awesome!

sjorsvdg (341) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Zeer smaakvolle kriek lambiek. In het smaakpalet zitten overduidelijk zure kersen, lambiekbier met een champagnesmaak, kurk (de aangename smaak ervan), citroen. Erg goed bier.

100%,l lambic bio, fantastische rode kleur met roze kraag. Aroma en smaken van frisse fruitzuren, hout, kersen, redelijk complex, imgo iets aan de te zure kant, verder prima

Manslow (1018) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 5, 2016
Butelka 0,375l Kolor piękny wiśniowy, piana znika bardzo szybko. Aromat oczywiście wiśniowy ale zbyt pusty, smak wiśnia kwaśny. Orzeżwiający długi finisz na podniebieniu. Oczekiwania były większe.

sseb69 (1750) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Bouteille 375ml. 5% Embouteillée le 9 décembre 2015. Couleur rose/rouge, mousse rose, bonne effervescence. Au nez, levures sauvages et cerise. En bouche, effervescente, sauvage et fruitée. Un peu de barrique qui s’entremêle à tout ça. Un beau mélange de saveurs. Finale sèche avec un peu de fruits rouge. Excellente.

anstei (940) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle, 2014 vintage, 750ml. Pours clear dark red with a healthy head that dies quickly. Good cherries, not overwhelming, some funk too. Carbonation is crisp, especially after swallowing. Some vinegar on the palate that doesn’t really fit so well. Altogether a fine mix of things to discover, but not the most harmonic one.
