ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołůw, POLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle, vintage 2009. Fantastically deep and well integrated, complex bouquet. Sour cherries, other sour, red fruit, light horseblanket, hay and farmyard funk. Sour, crisp, deep and rich beer. Excellent stuff.

Linnet (1384) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Wonderful stuff, very tart, yet still with a lot of fruit character, ripe cherries that blend in well with the overall tartness of the beer. World class.

MrOrla (1156) - Odense C, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours murky red with a pink head. Aroma of funk, tart, sour cherry, light wood. Taste is sour cherry, funk, light barn, wood. Quite dry with quite a complex taste.

hawthorne00 (3044) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle. Cork says bb 2039, label a crossed out 2009. Who knows, but youíd guess this is recent because the cherries are a big presence. Deep clear red with a pink head that is soon gone. Brooding cherry aroma with somewhat medicinal wood and herbal notes. Taste is unexpected vinous with a palate thatís more acid and seemingly tannic than sour. Earthy with cherries, blackberries, almonds. Like biting down to the stone of a really fat sour cherry. so full of cherries but theyíre seamlessly integrated into the beer overall. deeper cherry flavours than any other Kriek Iíve had and a very fine beer.

hallinghansen (2466) - Odense S, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. Hazy deep red body with a medium pink head. Cherries, vinegar, yeast, marzipan, citric, blood orange, tart, light dusty. Sour finish. Very good.

markextrae (2490) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend. Poured a dark red colour with a slight pink head on top. Sweet cherries upfront, hay, slight citrus, and a hint of grains, musky vinegar and horseblanket. Pretty sour as a kriek. Sour cherries and raspberries. Incredible stuff

Muggus69 (1665) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2015
750mL corked & caged Champagne bottle. Bottled Jan 2009 - although itís been crossed out(?) Stunning looking beer really - deep scarlet body, touch of hazy, holds a very tightly packed bright pink head. Aroma is quite vinous, not overly pungent but complex - black cherry, almond, getting ripe mulchy Pinot Noir character in there too, faint toasty oak (newish barrel?), touch of vanilla there, acetic acid twang, subtle leesy cheesy note. Light bodied, lively carbonation, racy acidity thins things out but isnít overbearing, seems a touch malic, not as aggressively acetic/vinegary as many. Tart cherry on the body, not sour cherry, actually reasonably ripe cherry flavour, the acidity is coming from elsewhere. Vinous once again - light bodied Pinot-esque, could pass for a Rosť of some description, but thereís that touch of oak vanillin & toast, and faint funky notes of aged hard cheese & barnyard. Drawn out finish, lingering herbal quality (pips? stalks?). A rather elegant, sophisticated Lambic. Plenty of fruit in there, but thereís plenty of the underlying beer to appreciate.

bhaag (27) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2015
Blood red with aromas of funk and apple, floral and slighty metallic. Balanced palate mildy sour with a medium winey body. Great beer that really opens with time in the glass.

simont1 (484) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
"2009 Jan" bottle, not sure of actual date. Murky pink, not very saturated and a bit grayish, weak head.

Aroma very complex, big almond notes, cherry, redcurrants, red wine like, vanilla, oak, with a layer of funk. Tastes the same, like a compote of almond and cherry skins with a sparkling sourness and cheesey leathery aftertaste.

luttonm (3415) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2015
2009, 750ml. Alberto and Mortlach, stunning! Deep cola red, pearly rose head. Dissipates to cream. Wow, fantastic old, funky barnyard. Great, drying funk, so appetizing. Cherry is secondary to tannic, young red wine quality. One of the tastiest beers Iíve had in recent memory. Such a treat.
