Travlr (19872) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2008
375 ml bottle. Beautiful color. Decent sourness, balanced with a slight sweetness. Not as musty as most, but still very good.

Beer5000 (5699) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2008
750 ml bottle. Almost clear, dark red body with a tiny head. Aroma is sweet and sour cherry. Flavor is nice balanced between sweet and sour, cherry fruity as well (of course). Nice, drinkable, refreshing but not outstanding. Like it a lot anyway.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 25, 2008
375ml bottle: poured reddish brown with a quickly dissipating pinkish head. Mild sour cherry aroma with yeast notes. Moderate sour taste with just a hint of sweetness and a full cherry flavor. Slightly watery finish but still quite nice.

Hazy reddish colour. Nose not so good. A nice sherryish taste. pale pink head. Medium sourness also light sweetness. A bottle (1882) tasted at Pikkulintu.

It is a little confusing the subject. They have different Kirek biers and do not know what is the difference. It was good like a cherry pie. Had it at GBBF 2008.

I am far more impressed with this beer than the European drinkers. Dark cloudy red with suspended yeast, and a layer of foam that stays at nearly 1/2 inch more than 30 minutes after pouring into my Cantillon tumbler. Lambic aroma with sour cherry. More lambic flavor with yeast in the flavor, oak, and cherry. Some sugar, not much. Not as thick as Scharbekse, but thicker than some other krieks. Sour for sure, not Cantillon or Fontienen sour, but sour for sure. I did expect more sourness like Girardin Gueuze, but it doesn’t go so far. Purchased in Brugge, March 2007, Baccus Cornelius, with July 2006 stamped on the cap.

TEJA (2077) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2008
Second out of 4 in a Kriek sampling. White foam that goes away fast and tays as a thinn lace. No cherry aroma but wood-terpentine present or other unpure solvents. Too much leftover sugars for a kriek.Medium sour but the sugars cover much of it. I wounder if the bottle could be to old or stored badly.

ogivlado (7025) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2008
Bottled(375ml). -Dark rose wine coloured, medium sized stable pink head, sourish cherry nose. Fruity cherry taste with notes of yeast and wood. Lingering sour finish and aftertaste. Refreshing and enjoyable beer.
