1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, Not much nose. Lite fruit cherry raspberry with a chlorine bleach mixed in. Hazy purple red color. Pink foamy head that died down quickly. Sour tart flavor. Cranberry and that chlorine again. Like pool water. Thin body. Bitter dry finish. This just can’t be right, hoping its a bad bottle. I dumped half of it. Yuck.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This 2001 bottled brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized purple hued bubbles. The body was transparent uncarbonated and brown in color. It had a typical Cantillon Lambic aroma and a fruity sour acidic tingly mouth feel with the acidic taste lingering in the finish. The flavor was sour and very much like a Belgian Lambic.

Drew-LaPalooza brew #12: Deep bloody red, pretty pink head. All of the outdoor aromas that you could hope for, and more! Super sour tart - leaves me squinty eyed. Acidy at the back and then tons of sour bing cherry with a strong woody finish. Top notch!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drew-LaPalooza. Dark red color, pink head, musty, sour, outdoor feel to it. Sourness attacks the tongue, very carbonated on the palate. First time I had something like this I didn’t know quite what to think. Now, I like them.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden) Red with a small haze, pink bubbly head. Dry musty aroma with a hint of black cherries. Very sour and dry flavour...you have to seek after the cherries. Long and extremly sour finish. My stomach hates me after this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
WCCII: Somewhat cloudy pinkish coloured beer with a quickly disappearing head. Light rubber and cherry aroma. The taste is slightly vintage which means that there is a light buttery cherry taste. Maybe this beer will get better in a few more years. Maybe a bit too thin.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red in color. You can really smell the cherries, wood, sour. Nice and tart, not very sweet with a real cherry taste.
Finishes with a certain spiciness. Just
became my favorite kriek.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light cherry nose complimented by its light cherry color. Highly sour with no sweetness to be detected. More of the outdoor, hay, blanket, straw, cobweb flavors than any fruit/cherry flavors. Very true to description. Dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly soured aroma. Nicely balanced soured cherry flavor throughout. A good example.
