Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
A clear cherry red beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is sweet and sour. The flavor is primarily of sour cherries and wood with an underlying sweetness and slightly sourness - not too much of either. For a Kriek I think it isn't sour enough and the cherries are a bit too prominent. A nice beer, but not perfect.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Very dark red - close to black - decent, pinkisk head. The cherries are not so prominent in this, but they’re certainly detectable - especially because they’re not completely drowned by sourness. Even a slight hint of sweetness. A decent and drinkable classical Kriek. 100897

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2005
Bottled. Orangered colour, nice reddish head. Sour cherry aroma. Sour cherry flavour, but yet very smooth. Lovely dry sour palate, long sourish aftertaste.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2002
Deep burgundy. Dry and balanced. Light aroma of sour cherries. Reminiscent of a Cabernet Sauvignon. The draught version appears more fruity, and is even better than the bottled one.

2012-05-06, draught at Fairbar, Århus, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Beautiful ruby red color. Mild and harmonious aroma, with some cherries, cherry stones, sugar. Smooth mouthfeel; some impression of cherry syrup and grenadine, pomegranate, light strawberries; the acidity is very moderate, and it seems even less evident than the mild astringency. It seems more alcoholic than it really is.
An easy Lambic.

2009-08-28, corked bottle, 37cl, bb 0706 (whatever it means)
Cloudy red color; persistent head. Out of the bottle, immediately an aroma of cherries; it gets lighter and later there is just some aroma of wood. Aggressive mouthfeel, tart and acidic, very lemony, but never exceeding, and only with a vein of cherries. Tart final. Rough but solid, not much fruity, for tough drinkers.
