77ships (5900) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. 2010 Vintage. Pours dark raspberry red with a pinkish head. Nose is very full of fruits, more cherry than kriek, light raspberry, almost cloying, very jam-like. Taste is blend of cherries & kriek, less tang than I am used of the kiek (the fruit), light hint of iron (maybe the age), touch thin but very easy to drink, oodles of fruit, somewhat fruit sweety with a jam impression, kriek pits in there, light berries in s pices in the finish. Fine carb. very easy to drink. Would have been superb with some sourness but as this stands this is pretty much what a fruit beer should be, fruits & not chemical nonsense. Great stuff. ///// Shared another 75 cl. bottle @ RBBSG II, total gusher & not bad but not as good as the firt time around, bit too metallic & thin, same vintage, keeping previous score for now

caesar (5879) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Dark reddish color, short head. Aroma of loads of cherries and cherry pits, marzipan. Soft sourness, quite fruity. Got some bitterness as well, but mostly lots of fruity sweetness. Little too much carbonation. Lots of fruit, could have used a bit more sourness.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2009
75 cl bottle, vintage 2006, at Moeder Lambic. Ruby red with a pinkish head. Kriek aroma, somewhat sweet, but not excessively so. Sweet "mon cherie" flavours, ending dry. Quite refined cherry taste. Nice.

BlackHaddock (5091) - 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.
