downender (7373) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2008
375ml bottle. Poured cherry red with a massive foamy, off-white head. Aroma of tart fruit and almonds, Plenty of fruit in the flavour with a fair bit of sweetness and a short dry finish. Good, but not the best kriek lambic by a long way.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2008
Keg (ZBF2008)
Red, tiny head. Slightly cherry aroma, but not much else. Toffee taste, and a bit watery. Refreshing but a little sweet. Fortunately it did have some acidic sourness to cut through the sweetness, which saved it.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 2008-02-29. Hazy dark red-brown body with a massive foamy beige head. Funky, sour ground beef is an unexpected first impression that does not return. Cherry is sweet and does not imply much sourness within. Notes of funky wet socks. (6+) Sweet cherry flavour, muted underlying malt. Sweet cough syrup like cherry at times. Average palate. Disappointingly average. 7/4/7/3/13 - 3.4
Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp <P>2008-03-01. Red boy with a small pinkish head. Mild aroma, sweet muted cherries, hints at sweet malt (6+) Moderately sour cherries, tart-sour finish lingers drying out the mouth. Sourness seems to escalate as the glass goes on, intensifying the cherries. Average palate. Grows on me a lot, much better than our bottled sample earlier in the trip! 6+/3/8/3/16+ - 3.7
On Tap at Zythos Festival, St. Niklaas

ZBF2008: From bottle. Pours slight hazy red with a lacing white head. Aroma is sulphorish acidic cherry, quite dry. Flavour is dry cherry and light woody. Dry finish. Lovely fruity, sulphorish and dry.

BelgiskOlklub (1000) - Viby J, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle. Small fizzy off-white head that’s diminishing. Fair lacing. Aroma of cherry, cask wood, apple and yeast (earth and musty). Light thin texture. The flavor is light sweet, heavy acidic and very lightly bitter. A dry fruity beer well balanced but not as complex, not as sour as the oude kriek.

Bottle at home. Nose is cherries and full bursting ripeness, quite sweet and woody. Mouth is sweet and smooth, fruity and juicy. Very nice.
