Draught at Akkurat. Deep red brown witha whisper of a pink head, very low carbonation. Farmyard aroma which the fruit does not dominate. Sour cheery flavour (duh) but you can still appreciate the lambic underneath. This is somthing krieks which are less good do not achieve.

Absolutely gorgeous looking: deep sparkling red with fluffy cascading head, and neverending beading. Spritzy mouthfeel and champagne like texture. Wonderful sour cherry and grassy flavors, with a moderate yeastiness. Sour, but not overpoweringly so.

Very nice warm reddish color and big fluffy intens pink head. Aroma has very delicate cherry accents and refreshing herby hints of thyme, mint and sage. It also has touches of wet wood, cigare cases, barnyard, rubarbe and some frech vanilla. Taste is soft, round and smooth. The sharp accidic edges are well incorporated in this very distictive kriek. It has this thingling, refreshing carbonation that brings some extra crispyness in this great kriek.
At the Hopduvel in Ghent on a very hot day like today.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Healthy red-amber hue with a medium, light pink, creamy head. Lots of cherries, oak, cream, vanilla, and hay with a subtle barnyard funk (if such a thing can be subtle). Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic finish. Definitely one of the sweetest /real/ lamics Iíve had to date. Medium body, oily/slick texture, fizzy carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled in February 2005. Had it in May 2005. Reddish fizzy head, diminishing. Red, medium body. Dry texture. Delivers a spurt of cherry and wood in the aroma. Very lasting. Some wine hints. First, acetic and sour vinegar in flavor. Long finish with cherry skins and wood. Becomes increasingly sweet while drinking. The acidity and sourness disappear. Becomes too sweet! Thatís a disadvantage. Perhaps Iíve had it too young. The aroma and appearance also point out that itís not matured. Even though, other raters also mention that the beer is quite sweet.

Good acidic tones, but the cherrytaste is a little bit in the background, a bit of tart and a quite nice finish, a good kriek, but it can always be better ;)

(o n bottle) Big bobbly pink head, light cherry colour. Sour , but almost sweet cherry kernel aroma. The carbonation is goos balanced, itīs a sweet pour, but not overwhelming. The finish picks up tart and fine; itīs like the mouthfeel goes up on the palate, in a refreshing way.
