pivnizub (9162) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 10, 2015
Tap(@Alles Gärbar, Bochum): Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, no head to speak of; almonds, cherries, wood and vinegar in the sour and sweetish nose; moderate, still not too strong, sour flavour, moderately balanced by a well detectable residual sweetness, light to medium bodied, tart MF; lingering fruity, almondy and a bit balsamico-like finish, sorrounded by typical Lambik flavours. Yes, yes! A very fine Lambik of high drinkability…

AbouAli (187) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
@Delices et caprices Couleur rose-rouge, pas très foncée pour une kriek. Belle texture bien soyeuse. Evidemment plate. On sent le goût Girardin et également "kriek", belle réussite, pas trop acide et bine rond.

Alengrin (2884) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Girardin’s unblended cherry lambic, purplish red in colour, no head as expected for the style. Refined, honest and earthy character, delicate funkiness, cheesy, very fruity with enough real cherries; still unsweetened contrary to the bottled kriek and in that sense a lot more interesting for lambic lovers, relatively mild, and very elegant. Great example of its particular style, like their regular lambic.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask au ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Arômes très fruités de cerises confites. Légères notes sauvages. Robe rouge et limpide, très faible effervescence et peu de mousse. En bouche, les fruits sont très présents, montrant un caractère de tarte aux cerises. Le lambic apporte quelques notes sauvages qui tentent de percer au travers des fruits. Finale bien sèche et légèrement acide (beaucoup moins que le Oude Kriek moyen). Très bon!

Gerbeer (2210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep dark red with almost no head. Aromas of pressed cherries and barnyard. Flavors of cherry pie and light funk. A nice light Kriek for a summer evening.
