4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
37.5cL bottle from 2002. Orange/red color and more carbonation than expected. Amazing aroma of grapefruit and cherry. Simply intense. Flavor is more sour than a bottle drunk about 2 years ago. The cherry still comes through. Wow, this has matured into something really special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a ruby color from the bottle with a big foamy pink head...it looks fantastic. Smells of cherry and sweet oak, and you definitely get some tartness in there. The palate ends a bit dry and the oak gives it a strange finish but solid overall

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a sample cup from a bottle: Pours purple like grape juice with the biggest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. It was impossible to pour it without having 4x the head than the level of the beer, way over carbonated. Aroma of grapes, feet, plastic, and poison. Taste is every bit as bad. I’m glad I survived.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy dark red with a small light pink head that settles to a ring and has good lacing. Aroma of cherries and some sweetness with a little oak. Taste dark cherries and fruitiness with some sweetness, mild oak and a bit tart and grassy. Finishes semi dry. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not very complex and a bit too candy sweet for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle pours deep crimson color with a 2 finger light pink head that leaves some spotted lacing. Aroma is dominated by cherries with hints of yeast. Taste is a cherry tartness with a malty sweetness and a very dry finish. Light to medium body with generous carbonation. Good brew for the style and recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 green bottle, corked, caged. Red pour, pretty clear. Pink foam, actually a LOT of foam for the style, surprisngly clingy. Nose has cotton candy and cherries. Taste has a big juicy, sharp cherry start, a little sweetness. Ends with some wood and dryness. Not as complex as I was hoping, but OK.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
With a sharp aroma of cherries and a deep red appearance this kriek has all the sweetness but non of the sour tones of a typical Belgian beer. Excellent flavour and a little resonating flavour lingering on the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle best before 25/04/2016, so I imagine it’s from 2011. Pours a deep ruby purple with bubbly reddish white head. Aroma is mild funk with overlying sweet cherry and wine grape musk. Taste follows, really sweet and very little sour. Bubbly carbonation and syrupy mouth. Kind of a bit disappointed, but not as bad as a Lindemann’s at least.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Purple Hue, Passes Mild Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing
S: Pinot Noir, Mildly Bitter Cherry
T: Mild Pinot Noir, Mild Cherry
M: Average Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Tart
Overall, not a bad Kriek, had more of a red wine flavor to it, which I liked for the mild tartness, paid $6 for the 375ml....probably not worth it at that price IMO.
