Borresteijn (4647) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy ruby amber colour, no head. Aroma of Brettanomyces, paper, faded cinnamon, hint of the promised cherries, red wine. Aroma is quite sour, acetic, red wine, some funk, sour lemon finish. Light-bodied, no carbonation. I prefer the base beer.

TBone (12545) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottled 330ml Tnx Edo. Bottled 06/2012. Murky pinky deep red color, no head. Tart cherries in the nose and "cherry stones" with light notes of barnyard. Light bodied. Very tart with mouthwatering cherry flavor. Fruity, although a bit empty finish but very nice kriekish tartness.

Theydon_Bois (8392) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, thanks to Joris for trading me this number, 23/08/13. Hazed dark golden amber with reddish hues and avery little if any head at all. Nose is musty, damp wood, tarte cherries, light smoke, soured berry fruits. Taste comprises dank wood, tarte cherries, straw, light smoke. Medium bodied, dry and tangy fruity tarte finish. Nice sour, fairly simple but tasty.

jerohen (1993) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Orange/brown colored, almost no head, as flat as a pancake. Acidic and fruity nose, leather, barnyard, kriekenlambic. Quite sour flavor, but quite watery and not really lasting. Thin mouthfeel, no carbonation whatsoever. Feels like a watery imitation of an oude kriek. Since there are so many better examples, i’m afraid i won’t feel the need to drink this more often.

Staffan47 (871) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2013
Härliga kirschbär i doften. Ganska vattnig men frisk och fräsch. Bra syra men inte så mycket funk. Doften är ju härlig, den har lite funk

kappldav123 (4870) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass red, a bit brownish. Nice head. Mild-sourish aroma. Starts dry and sourish, modest fruity like cherries. Prickly-dry finish, fruity notes disappear in the background. Dry aftertaste. Okay.
