0.3l bottle. Pours a cloudy ruby red with a fine red head. Aroma: notes of cherry, lemon, hints of grapefruit, raspberry. Palate: super tart. fizzy, lively, lingers long and well. Taste: sweet, but not super sweet. Super sour. Really awesome flavour. Fruity, but still beery. Tastes like cherry, lemon, cranberries. Awesome beer.

It is a shame that this is a brewery that is hard to find unless you live in Belgium. Fortunately, in my travels I was able to visit the brewery and it is the perfect setting for the ultimate and original lambics. I enjoyed them all, but this Kriek is done as Kreik’s are supposed to be...not sweet but complex and sour. Cantillon allows their sours to age properly to ferment out and that is where their wonderful, patient flavors come from. Yum!

Bottle to glass. Pours a beautiful rose light brown color with a fizzy light pinkish head. Aroma is dry, oak, light tartness, hint of cherries. Flavor has a huge cherry tartness to it. Oily body with a lingering cherry sour. Very tasty!

manuelMTL (160) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
From 375 ml bottle in tulip. Pour is light red with almost no head. Great cherry nose with lots of funk and tartness. Taste is dry pungent sourness with a fresh cherry flavor and a long lingering light bitterness. Great funk and tart flavors as all Cantillon beers. This is a perfect fruity sour beer.

Une des meilleurs kriek ? Plus mousseuse que les autres relativement claire. on sent bien les levures cantillon avec une belle rondeur.

Nice deep red, pink head. Aroma is sour cherries, yeast, horseblanket. Taste is a nice firm sour cherriness, that the yeast really compliments

750 bottle from Belgian e-shop Didn’t note Vintage Light red color, a bit cloudy with off white head with pink hints. Amazing intense cherry aroma, a bit almond. Tart and fruity, nice cherry complex flavor. Fruity dry and sour finish. Amazing kriek, I wish I had another bottle.
