McWorta (828) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 27, 2014
Dark red colour with no real head. Noses of sour cherries and woody. The taste is also offering mainly sour cherry notes but all rather well balanced. Sour with some sweet notes to it. The finish is a bit fruity dry.

Cask @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Bright purple-ish red with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of sweet cherries with light subdued funk. Taste is sweet with cherries and light funk. Medium body. Soft carbonation. A tad sirupy. Not really dry. That’s a good and tasty fruit juice, but it lack some depth.

JulienHuxley (3892) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
On cask at Grote Dorst. Clear deep red pour with no head. Aroma is fruity, nice desserty cherry aroma, fresh cherry pie, light syrupy notes, very mild funk. Taste is sweet, juicy cherry flavor, not very tart at all. Closer to cherry juice, the lambic is quite subdued in this one. Palate is medium bodied. Nice, but would have enjoyed a bit more lambic character.

GT2 (9165) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bag in a box thanks to t0rin0, grabbed on Belgium in a Box. Pours low haze deep cherry red. No carbonation as expected. Nose is powerful cherry pie with pithy baked dark cherry, pie crust, cherry cobbler. Taste is clean but very simple, low acid, mild butter, cherry popsicle. Finishes clean, lightly acidic, no acetic, some lactic and a bit of dairy thickness. Nice summer fruit quencher style.

Beautiful deep red coloured. Pleasant natural cherry aroma. Good balance between sweetness and sourness in the flavour. Notes of grapefruit and almonds. Very refreshing and nice.

JorgeLee (1341) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Gravity at GBBF 2013. Pink in colour, quite low carbonation. Sweet cherry flavour. Nice well balanced kriek, cherry flavour strong and mixes well with the lambic. A little sweet I thought, especially at first sip, but maybe I prefer the complexity of the older lambics (the Indian thought it was pretty sour). Either way, very drinkable.
