4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (750 ml). One of the best looking beer I’ve seen so far. Ruby red with a small long lasting white/pinkish head and nice lacing. Powerful aroma of cherries, red fruits and sourness. Great mix of lambic and belgian sour. Taste is smooth and slightly sweet with cherries, red fruits and slight sourness. Body is thin and not as dry as a lambic would be. Beautiful and extremely well-executed beer. Very complex, especially the aroma, awesome balance and great drinkability. Pleasant surprise, I will drink this again in the future!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille 750 ml. Wow! Belle robe quasi bourgogne surmontée d’un collet rosâtre. Arôme explosive de cerise, d’acidité fruité et de "barnyard". Le goût est funky, très agréable. Un peu de houblon en final. Très agréable à boire.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 06/2011.
Shared with my wife after dinner.
Both of our observations. (c) if only I noticed, and (a) if only she:
Aroma: Cherry, cherry pit, brett funk-(c), lemon citric.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, carbonation and astringency. (a) a little too "watery".
Flavor: Tart, Cherry Pits, a bit more bitter than others I’ve had of the style. strong cherry pit/hop/brett bitter aftertast, light "beer" malty flavor that fades as you drink-(a).
Overall. Really enjoyable. Refreshing, reasonably complex, not a terribly "difficult" drink for someone unfamiliar with the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at home from Drinkstore
Pours a deep indigo tinged crimson with fluffy scarlet head. Fairly sour with dry lactic acid and some ripe manure on the nose. Medium-high carbonation, raspberry balsamic, plenty of sour acid character, some cherry stone, fairly dry yet zippy finish

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A decent cherry sour beer with lambic added. Has that bitter aftertaste that I'm not crazy about. Pours a deep red with very little head. Doesn't have the sweetness you'd expect from something blended with lambic

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. There are notes of cherry, citrus, a musty/dusty quality, grain, a noticeable tannic character, huskiness, firm acidity. This beer poured a brilliant red, truely one of the best looking Krieks I have had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, brought and shared by Jeff. Lovely pink hue with a pink-tinged crown. Aroma is sour and lightly herbal. Flavours of sour cherries, with woody and herbal nuances, and a light yoghurty acidity. Nice balance here, although a bit more cherry character and perhaps a bit of spiciness would have been welcome. Still, very enjoyable.

Bottle bought in the Belgium order
Appearance: Clear red with a medium sized pink head and some lacing
Aroma and taste of tart fruit, woody and cherries
OK, the tartness and sweet fruit didn’t really blend together.
