Fresh sour cherries (krieken) in two year old Lambiek. We use approximately 300 gr cherries for 1 liter Kriek. The second fermentation in the bottle is obtained through addition of a liqueur, made with beer and saccharose.

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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2004
(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.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2004
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.

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.

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.

Slightly soured aroma. Nicely balanced soured cherry flavor throughout. A good example.

Well made Kriek. Ruby red color. Aroma is of sour cherries with a little yeast. Similiar to a port cheese. Mouthfeel is bubbly almost like champagne. Sour. dry finish.

caesar (5890) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2004
Cloudy pink color, short white head. Aroma of marzipan, some krieken. Not really sour taste, quite soft, especially for a cantillon, which is very flat and hard usually. Odd brew, but quite nice.
