Poured a clear pinky red with a medium pinky red head. Aroma of cherries, earth and wood, faint hint of caramel. Flavour is nice and smooth with creamy cherries. Well balanced.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4248) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 28, 2016
Not sure what vintage this is but served in a snifter it pours a lovely ruby red with a light pink head. The aroma’s quite different from other krieks as it delivers the same cherry and oak as so many others but I also get a distinct odd caramel like quality. Fairly full bodied with a dry finish that follows a hit of sweetness. The taste starts off sweet cherries, then musty oak, some cloying sweet cherry syrup before ending very dry. It’s pretty good though I feel there’s something a bit off with the aroma.

At home, 2015 37.5cl bottle. Pour: clearish but dusty, amber-orange, colour reminisent of red currant, medium head, lumpy peachy-orange foam Initial smell: sweet rhubarb, fruits, cherry, raspberry Tastes - First: candied cherry, sweet; mids: hints of barnyard; after: sour cherry, refreshingly tart, light watery finish Verdict: Has a nice baseline of the lambic sourness, not so heavy on the cherry as many others.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 2, 2016
Dec. ’15. A 0.375 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks a lot! It poured hazy cherry colored body with a medium sized, usual pink head. Decent sour cherry aroma. Not so intensively sour lambic flavor but nor the sour cherry was intense. Only a hint of sweetness here. Medium to thin body. Shorter finish, a bit earthy and even with smooth chalk wheat note at the very end. A pleasant fruit lambic, well balanced, but a bit thin.
