Hanoi (425) - Bedfordshire, - MAY 5, 2014
Nose is cherry, lactose, a little wheat; very underwhelming. Taste is green apple leading to cherry; there are some suspiciously syrupy notes in the middle. It has some nice oaky tones, with citrus in the finish. It’s nothing to write home about.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle at Kunstemaecker, Steenkerke, 17/10/14. Cherry red with a well appointed crimson covering. Nose is tangy cherries, woody must, light spice, cherry skins, hint of smoke. Taste comprises tarte cherry skins, cherry tinged straw, musty wood rinse, tangy berry fruit, light smoke. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light acidic vibes. Ok cherry kriek, fairly mellow but not without some depth.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375ml bottle served in a wine glass. Enjoyed in Treviso-IT. Bottle expiration: End of 2013. A: Pours a dark red (cherry) color forming a big and fizzy rose head. Soapy and bubbled. Good retention and lots of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass S: Sweet and fruity. Cherry juice, a bit sour and syrupy. Mild Lambic style yeasts T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of cherries. Mild sourness, a bit vinegar. A bit syrupy too. Notes of sweet malts and wood. End is light bitter M: Light body and good carbonation. Cherry, light sourness and bitterness in the aftertaste O: Quite smooth and easydrinking. I was expecting a much more sour beer. Perhaps a little bit too sweet and and syrupy than I was expecting too but still a nice Kriek [ BA Review @ 4/2/2013 ]

DroolYeast (257) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014

SinH4 (102) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Red-brown color with small head. Sour-tart nose, cherries, just a little bit of sweetness. Taste is sour and cherries, very refreshing. Not too complex, but well-balanced. A nice Kriek!

adamnowek (146) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
Not the most amazing example of the style, but it is incredibly drinkable without being excessively sweet.

Cimbasso (132) - - AUG 25, 2014
Sampled from a 75cl bottle with a cork. Cloudy red colour with a white (very slightly pink) head. Sour nose with a touch of vinegar (in the lambic style) and with a taste of cherries. Rather astringent, but with good balance. Good for drinking in the garden on a summer’s afternoon.

Holmen1 (2603) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
Fra flaske på Cardinal, M2 sesongåpning: lett grumset lyserød med kort filmskum. Sure kirsebær/kirsebæreddik. Elegant balansert, og det nikkes fornøyd rundt bordet - denne faller i smak. Ikke et kompleks øl, men jeg har en mistanke om at denne kan være vanedannende.

kermis (5452) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear red with a small cream head. Aroma of sugary sweet cherries, cherry cake. Flavor is over moderate sweet and light acidic. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
