JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, - FEB 2, 2013
Very good pink head, leaving lace over clear ruby beer. Smoked cherry nose. Not overpowering, but intriguing. Like old cherry skins on alcohol. Nice, dry, if not sour cherryflavour - but neither artificial. MF has a lipsmacking sourishness then, that is refreshing. Quite some (fruit?)slickness, grist; long fruity aftertaste. Very good non-lambic kriek. Misses maybe just a tad sourishness in order to appeal to greatness. Why not try, and recreate the Zottegemse Kriek from Crombé times...?

bartlebier (1631) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
33cl bottle, Geers. Cherry Ox blood with a mauve plum shine. Nose of plum pits, burnt oak, mulled wine. Taste is deep cherry marred by bitter pit, made more aggressive by a distinct balsamic, harsh lactobacillus note and cloved mulled wine spice. Considerably less subtle beer than many other De Leite brews, even while attempting something brash like a triple kriek. Will revisit aged.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 27, 2014
Courtesy of Jaghana. Couleur cerise rouge trouble, petite mousse blanche. Super nez cerise, fruité, fut de vin, aigre, vineuse comme oud bruin . Gout fruité cerise griotte aigres, fut de vin, superbe aigreur et bon sucre. Bonne aigreur puis tanin de vin en fin de bouche. On sent a peine les 8.5 c°. Magnifique!

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle 33cl, kindly given by Bartlebier thanks. A cloudy red bier with low head. Nose is intence on sour cherry notes, dry, tart, lactic, tannic, light diacetyl, lot of red fruits, light plum, not as dry as a lambic, slightly vinous. Finish has burnt cherry notes, still acid, very nice.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Hazy pinkish red beer, good size pink head. Palate is airy with very fine carbonation. Light cherry and oaky sweetness. Balanced by mild sourness and lemon. Light airy finish. Very pleasant.

Scopey (6651) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to Matteo. It pours deep pink with a small white head. The nose is fresh, fruit, tart cherry, raspberry, sherbet and light candy. The taste is crisp, raspberry seed, cherry, Granny Smith apple, sherbet, candy, wood, light vanilla, earth, lemon peel and dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Crisp, tart and fruity. Rather nice.

JefVerstraete (1253) - BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2014
@ The Capital, Leuven. Dark red colour, light pink foam that disappears quickly. Very fruity aroma of sour cherries. Also some notes of balsamic vinegar. Dry finish. Easy drinkable and very complex fruit beer.

Benzai (8068) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Clear reddish color, small pinkish head. Aroma has fruits, slightly sweetness, a touch of wood, lightly cherries. Taste fruits, cherries, again a touch of wood. I must admit, I was quite skeptical but it’s pretty nice indeed. Good fruitbeer.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Bottle @benzai. Pink/red color with a small white head. Smells sour, sweet, red fruit, raspberry. Tastes sweet, red fruit, nice. I was expecting more sourness.
