Kriekenlambiek Girardin 5% Cask(well bag in a box from the fridge) at Fleur en Papier Doree. It pours a deep dense cherry red and smells of musty tart-sour cherries. Med-full bodied and qute smooth. The taste is oaky, tannic, sour cherry, their stems & seeds give it an earthy and almond quality. This is one old school Kriek that is in no way sweet. Well the sweetness is there but exceedingly ephemeral. This beer in this place is the ultimate in old school lambic feeling. Great.

From a cardboard box at the Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear red colour with no head. Leathery aroma with some red berries. Vinegar, sugar, mild sourness, red berries and mild cherries in the flavour. No carbonation. Very easy to drink.

olio (8802) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Cardboard canister @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours dark red color with no head, completely flat. Sour cherries and some rose hip notes on the nose, mild yeast notes too. Sweet berries on the flavor, slightly sugary, cherries, faint raspberry notes and some gooseberries. Very quaffable, tasty too, maybe a bit more sour and this would have been great.

bastarda (377) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2015
kindly shared by bartlebier, thanks a lot. Aromas of dry sherry, wood, some brett, with ripe and juicy sour cherries underneath, develops similarly in taste, with some hints of pink fleshy grapefruit and some grapefruit peel sour-/bitterness at the end. Very nice and refreshing.

jaghana (5289) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 22, 2015
10L pack shared by Bartlebier thanks. A red bier almost without head, nose is on fruit. Aroma is medium sweet, fruit acidity, low lambic notes, red fruit dominant, malty notes which is rare for a kriek, very easy drinkable, kind of real cherry drink.
