77ships (5091) - Antwerpen, - OCT 7, 2012
2005 Vintage - 375 ml. sampled @ Kulminator - hazy raspberry coloured, some white lacing - nose is going towards cherry more than kriek, tart but with a fruit sweet edge, nice sourness underneath - taste is good, going fruitier side rather than the more thinned and sour side, some softer fruits, light cellar, light vinegar, light wood - lovely very light syrup body - De Cam is good - this is good stuff - should revisit this one - wonder if aging upped this one a bit

JBPortland (1116) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
750ml bottle 2009 vintage pours bright cloudy red with medium head. Nose is super funky, lots of barny horse, cowshit, musty barrel, mixed with juicy cherry spice jam. Taste is full of sweet funky cherry, fruit spice, old barn wood, barnyard, medium acidity. Finishes with sweet funky tart cherry and berry jam, funky barrel, horse stable, wood spice. Amazing at 6 years in the bottle. One of the best krieks Iíve had.

Lukaduke (2604) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
2008 Vintage. Pours a deep ruby color with a finger of pinkish foam. Tons of funky cherry notes still pungent and apparent with 6 years on this. Really shines with layers of spicy cherry pits, tart skins juicy cherry funk and undertones of basement must, wet wood, barnyard nuances. Great acid level !

Douberd (3076) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
(De Cam Oude Kriek) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a tulip,bottled in 2009 according to label, ABV 6.5%, Bright red coloured liquid, small and thin pink-ish head, disappearing fast, no lacing. Great aroma of cherries, wood, cork. Slightly sour taste with lots of cherries, wood, dried leaves. Thin body, good carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff this one, even better than more sought after bottles I dare say.

Pours a beautiful, seductive, dark red. A one-finger pinkish-red head forms and quickly dissipates. Fresh cherry jam. Candied lemon. Funktastic basement. Tart lemon is dominant. Cherry flavor is underlying and very subtle. Refreshing, but relatively sour. Medium-bodied. Low carb. Very drinkable despite itís sourness. Itís like a tart lemonade with a hint of cherry juice added. Not bad, but not mind blowing.
