gEUS (1242) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2013
750 ml bottle at home. Taken from notes. Pours medium amber to red with a fine white pinkish white head. Aroma is cherries, mixed with malty and bready aromas of the tripel. Some flowery notes as well. Palate is sweet to sour, niclely in balance. Taste is sweet raspberries and vanilla. I miss some fruity tartness in this one.

2008 bottle thanks to Bu11zeye at the BTBF-eve tasting. Pink hazy pour. Aroma is cherry fried pie, light funk, solid amount of cherry for a 5 year old bottle. Flavor is lightly tart, tons of cherry. A lot like NB transatlantique kriek. Bitter finish.

Pours dark red, with a white pink head. Smells sweet cherry, that doesnt sound good... Does it? And off course we have a sweet cherry candy taste, smth i really hate in fruit sours..sour? Nothing sour here though. Bit dry, not balanced... No really, give me the real stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (4029) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2012
75cl bottle with friends @ Diest Bierfest 20th Oct 2012. Pours a true red colour with a salmon pink thin head on top. Cherries being the main flavouring within the beer, they obviously lead the way in the aroma and taste: not as sour or powerful as say a Rodenbach Grand Cru but this isn’t from Flanders and although not sweet either it comes across as an easy going kriekbier that is well crafted and blended nicely. Based I believe around the Loterbol Blonde, but don’t quote me on that. The only kriek we had at the festival and very pleasant it was too.

brokensail (11284) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bright ruby red pour with a pink head. There’s a ton of sweet cherry aroma, a light metallic character, some grass, and a hint of lactic tartness. There’s a fair amount of malt sweetness, too. Tastes just okay. A decent cherry flavor, but definitely quite sweet. Some metallic notes, straw, grass, and mild lemon zest. A hint of cherry candy.

Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Vintage 2010. A bit gusher. Pours hazy purple with a fine, white head. Loads of ripe cherries in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with moderate tang, some bitter cherry pits, grape skins. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with ripe cherries, light funk, bitter fruit skins. Light tartness. Quite nicely balanced, with decent and lasting bitterness. Good.
