Maakun (1477) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2015
75cl bottle shared on the beach. Hazy bright red with small pink head that leaves lots of cute tiny bubbles. Fresh cherries, light red berries, almonds, a bit lactic, hay and soft underlying funk. Light sweet and light to medium tartness with soft almond bitter finish. Light to medium bodied with sparkly carbonation. Nice beer, not very outspoken but super drinkable.

VDuquerroux (608) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A pink-red garnet opaque beer with a huge pinkish creamy head ; good retention ; good lacing ; elegant label. Aroma of cherry, sugar, acid, wood. Medium dry sour poorly persistent ; light to medium sweet : really drinkable : "welcoming". Light to medium body, watery texture, smooth, soft carbonation, sweet sour fruity finish. Overall, beautiful ; intense fruity ; pleasant ; welcoming, maybe too much..."lack of intimacy".

Bottle 37,5cl @ Sint Sebastiaan, parc Josaphat. A good kriek, somehow a bit too sweet but you can really taste the fresh cherries. Nice.

prawlie (1260) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
25 cL bottle into a Westvleteeren glass. Dark red with a bubbly head. Very fruity, kriek aroma, lovely. Sour, dry and a little tart, with cherries. Pleasant but less than subtle. Not the best kriek but very drinkable.

DutchMark (243) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Nice bright red with a small head and lively soft carbonation. Very refreshing with subtle flavors. Subtle natural cherry flavor some funkyness and an mineral element. Mildly sour and dry. Good stuff.

jaghana (4576) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle 37,5 shared by Bartlebier thanks. An amber red beer with low head, nose is on red fruit and juice. Aroma is on red fruits, tart, dry, almond, more robust than the krikenlambic one. Again very drinkable, very fruity and very dry.
