yespr (40454) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008
75 cL bottle, 2001 version from Kulminator - so it seems although we think it may have been an older bottle we ended up getting. Pours slight cloudy deep amber with small white head. Beatiful inviting look. Aroma is mild cherry sweet fruity and light sweet, quite fresh. Lovely light cherry fruity flavoured, mild citrusy note and light acidic bite on the back of the tongue. But the fresh fruityness and mild sweetness really stands out. Nice fruity finish. Lovely.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2004
[Vintage 1992 - sampled 2004] A deep red beer with no head. The aroma is very powerful of cherries, but also with notes of alcohol and fermented fruit. The flavor is very sweet - with lots of cherries, almost artificial, but also notes of dust, but for a kriek not sour enough. I think it is over the top.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2007
Bottled. Hazy brownrubyish colour with big white head. Aroma of cherries, rasberries and some strawberries. Flavour is very much cherries and raspberries mixed. A nicely balanced beer. Probably from 2000 (cork), even though the lables BBE markings were from early 90’s (with nothing marked/cut on the labels).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Almost pitch black, not much head and a little low in carbonation. Pronounced sour notes from the base beer. Strong cherry flavour but never overly sweet. Rather nice indeed. 070698

Felix Ouderaards Kriekbier, Akkurat, Stockholm; Vintage ~1990, 16 years old
Clean color, mahogany; almost no foam. Strong aroma of cherries, cherry kernels, some malt, kirsch, spicy cookies; the aroma is developing and transforming! Almost still; velvety mouthfeel, some sweetness, cherries and cherry kernels fruitness, a touch of vinegar sourness. The final is not bitter enough, but quite sweet, too simple, with some old wood character. Minimum signs of age.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle at GBBF 2005. Glad that Dan cleared up the mystery of this beer because I wasn’t 100% certain I knew which Felix beer we had. Cloudy russet colour, smooth cherry nose, slightly sour and I though slightly chemically taste.
