Straight from the barrel at the brewery, barrel from ’09, so 3 yr old. Clear pale reddish color. Lovely cherry aroma, good tartness. Great fruitiness, good tartness in taste as well. Wonderful stuff again.

kermis (11038) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
On tap at DHVL. Pours clear red with a small pink head. Aroma of tart cherries with typical De Troch funk, a little pooey with light vinegar. Flavour is above light sweet and over moderate sour. A little watery in the mouthfeel. Above light bodied with soft carbonation.

Maakun (3926) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2015
Tap at Heeren van Liederkerke. Ruby red with small pink head. Light cherry, rubber, sour grains, cherry pits, some light vegetables, bit of garbage juice. Taste is medium sour and light bitter. Thin bodied with barely any carbonation. Drinkable enough.

Cunningham (6976) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2015
Red pour with a bubbly pink head. Sour fruity, oak and cherries in the nose. Perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. Ohhh what a nice mellow cherries flavor. Ahhhh what a lovely drink! Lovely summer time.
[Bottle from a trade with Martinus]

Kolor jest pi?kny, czere?niowo rubinowy, klarowny. Piany brak, zaledwie kilka ?redniej wielko?ci b?belków. Aromat przywodzi na my?l delikatny likier wi?niowy, czu? minimalnie truskawki i jakby mu?ni?cie cynamonem Smak: wi?nie w kompocie ale równie? bardzo delikatne nuty truskawek, malin i cynamon który jest tym razem do?? wyra?ny. Goryczka jest minimalna, delikatna i pestkowa. Wysycenie ?rednie, w tym przypadku bardzo odpowiednie Podsumowuj?c Kriekenlambik od De Troch jest bardzo pysznym i mocno pijalnym piwem, lekko cierpki i nieco wytrawny idealnie sprawdzi si? w upalne dni.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
The unblended cherry lambic from De Troch, only very occasionally used for the production of an oude kriek. Light red colour with orange-pinkish hue, obviously no head, ’mals’ and soft character but fully traditional, bit meaty, some vague gingerbread-like sweetness, ample fruit, lactic acidity leading to a long dry finish. Not the most rich or fruity kriekenlambic I had so far, but interesting and genuine.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bag in a box at WoSF 2014. Deep purple red, flat pour. Lemony, cherry winey cherries, mature/overripe fruits. Taste is quite tart, light sourness, light gastric notes, slightly overripe fruit. Palate is light, med-dry. Decent.
