375 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a cloudy reddish color with no head. The aroma and flavor have tart, funky cherry, wood, acidic but smooth drinking. This was an 06 bottle and didn’t have much carbonation but the flavor was very good.

b3shine (5492) - Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
375 ml bottle to taster (January 2006 vintage; shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for its age; a cloudy cherry with bubbly white lacing. Smells good too; cherries, funk, and oak. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. This may be the only sour with little to no carbonation that I’ve ever truly enjoyed. The complexity is stunning.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Authentic oude kriek since 2004. Variable head stability, sometimes very thick and rocky, sometimes quickly desintegrating, pale pinkish. Colour a fiery ruby red, misty. Complex lambic flavour, wine vinegar, lemon, with the sharp tartness of the sour cherries; lots of vinegar-like acidity, lemon juice, loads of overwhelming fresh fruitiness, oily cherry stones in the finish, light bitter, strongly dry because of the acidity. I reckon there are not many krieks further away from the sweet mainstream examples than this one. Certainly one for the more advanced lambic lovers.

750 ml "champagne" green bottle, as De Oude Cam Exclusief Oude Kriek, bottled January 2009. ABV is 6.5%. At Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Beautiful red colour, moderate pink head. Intense and lovely aroma of sour cherries, farmhouse and almonds / marzipan. Relatively light bodied. The flavour is quite sour, but not extreme. Sour cherries of course, not very sweet, with a dry finish.
