3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy color with a medium, rose head. Fresh aroma of cherries, apples, citron and tart. There is also a deep barnyard funky aroma to it aswell. Beer is mederatly acid with creamy mouthfeel. It has a dry tart finish like any lambic but has a ale body which plays well together. Easy to drink and hind the alcohol well...like any acid beer is. A very good sour ale.

Körsbärsröd färg med rosarött skum. Kraftig doft av sura körsbär. I bakgrunden finns en aning jordighet och funkighet. Den är torr och syrligheten är mycket mer fruktig än vinäger. Balanserad.

Nose of lemon juice and cherries, with hints of cut grass. Sourness is strong, but not enough to overpower me. Otherwise, the flavor is dry, lemony, with notes of freshly cut grass and a shot of cherry (but not too sweet).

juicy reds and oranges come together and climax in nice lathering atop while barnyard fumes circle around cherry pies and sour balls..a low carbination experience awaits with some subdued cherry sourness and some oak notes..but all in all, too subdued to warrant any kind of enthused reaction...

GBBF 2003 - tutored kriektasting: Hoppy wet leaves nose - slighty cheesy. Light pink color, little layer of a head. Flat short sweetness, almost guava taste - when bitter and hoppy. Astringend. Very complex.

(Bottled, 0.75l) Beautiful, deep, clear red color with a small, slightly pinkish head. Slightly sour and sweet cherry aroma. Sour, fruity flavor with an oak barrel feel. Hints of blood, ascorbic acid, cherry and sour apple. Sour, a bit carbonated, sticky palate. Very complex and quite a pleasant kriek. Not (much) too sour for my taste.

Bottled 2002, 0.7 liter (2 years old). Cloudy red coloured, small head. Promising aroma, fruity, vinous, like a good Flemish sour ale. Flavour is fruity and sour, but too watery to be really impressive. Needs some aging to mature some more, exactly what the label says (best after 5 years after bottle date).

Bottled. Red colour, small white head. Sour cherry flavour and aroma. Very dry finish. Hides it’s ABV well.

Barnyard, cherry and then more barnyard that is very strong. I really tried to pick up other stuff but just couldn’t. Bright red with a thin, white head that fades. Wow, initially sweet with a cherry flavor but then a major sour flavor with lots of acidicy. Lighter body, very dry. Interesting stuff. Thanks DenverLogan for sharing.

Thanks for sharing Kevin! Another great treat of the tasting! Red and hazy, cloudy with a nice white ring of head. Sour cherries in the nasal passage, yeast and sweaty candied cherries. Tart, funky sour cherry flavour, mild bitterness. Finish is tart, puckering, and very nice. Thanks again Kev!
