Bottle. Classic Belgian kriek. Notes of sour cherries mix with almond, some berries and barnyard. Medium sour, light body, tart and dry finish. Very tasty.

axl (564) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2016
Sample @Linköping Beer Expo 2016. Light red with pink head. Aroma is dry and slightly acidic with cherry, funk, earth, wood and barnyard notes. Taste is surprisingly sweet with cherry, funk, slight barnyard and minimal wood. Medium mouthfeel, light but prickly carbonation and dry tart aftertaste.

Even duidelijk: lambiek is niet mijn bier. Dat gezegd hebbende, vind ik dit een heel smaakvol biertje: fris door de koolzuur, wat zurig, kersen. Ook qua aroma komen de kersen goed naar boven. Het is geen bier waarvoor ik direct weer naar de winkel zal stappen, maar dat heeft met mijn voorkeuren te maken. Buiten dat is dit een zeer smaakvolle kriek.

mkel07 (5162) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 280216. Cherry laden beer that's okay without being a world beater. Cleanses the palate well, especially after a few big beers.

Great cherry taste and aroma. Semi-clear red appearance with a white head. Medium sweetness and sourness. Soft lively carbonation, full body. Very tasteful kriek.

gopherfan99 (1248) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle; pours red with a light pink head; aroma is almost yogurt like with tart cherries, vanilla, and some yeast; taste is sweet with cherries, vanilla, yeast, and some wood hints; finish is tart; delicious, I should have added some vanilla bean ice cream to this....

andrepintado (2735) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - FEB 9, 2016
37,5cl bottle from etre gourmet. Dark orange to red color. Thin head. Medium sweetness, low to medium sourness. Aroma is cherries, light barnyard. It’s less dense than my top ones, but it’s still quite drinkable.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016

The_Osprey (6362) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016
37.5cl cork and cage bottle as ’Kriek Girardin 1882’, 5%. Undated, picked up 3 months ago in Belgium. Very deep ruby, highly sparkling, huge pillowy pink head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is sweet cherry, cherry lips sweets. Simple cherry aroma. Body is light, soft carbonation, a little foamy, a little tooth-coating. Taste is creamy cherry, earthy, sour citrus, dirty, lightly metallic. Taste is more complex and interesting than the aroma. Very decent.

Dark red colur with a small white head. Smells of sour cherries. Really lovely cherry flavour.
