A: The pour is blood red with no carbonation. Nice clarity to it. S: A really intense cherry aroma. Tons of cherry skin in addition to the flesh. Lemon zest and lactic tartness with a bit of grass and straw. Just an amazing amount of cherry, though. T: The flavor is even better. It’s just a little bit sweet with plenty of lactic tartness to balance that out. As with the nose, a prodigious amount of cherry flesh and skin flavor. Only a mild funk to it. M: Medium bodied with no carbonation. O: Awesome stuff. I could probably drink all 5 liters by myself.

Lambic in a box thanks to cquiroga. Pours with a hazed red hue and minimal signs of carbonation. Aroma is strong of cherries, acid, funk, leather, and lactic yogurt. Flavors haze some vinegar notes, cherries, vanilla, almonds, funk, horse and lactic acid. Medium acidity. Thin body with close to no carbonation. Red wine and jammy. Quite pleasant.

KyotoLefty (6176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 2, 2011
From bag-in-the-box at Het Goudblommeke in Papier. Deep crimson, lovely, with a few bubbles. Ripe cherries, yogurt, vanilla, nut nose. Slight lactic and citric tartness, but only slight. Light sourness, nice cherry flavor, yogurt, vanilla, ,emon, a bit of dusty blanket. Very drinkable, but not so sweet. Completely flat. Very nice. So drinkable...

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Dark red, thin beige cream head, light wisps. Nose is very sweet, like cherry candy, heavy sugar drowns out fruit depth. Flavor is rather watery, more cherry, hay, light celery, and some rind in the finish. Thin but juicy, no carbonation.

Cask @ Fleur de Papier Plié, Bruxelles. Couleur rougeâtre, plate avec qcq bulles blanches venant percer la surface. Arôme est plein de savoureuses cerises donnant une touche pas trop aigre pour ce lambic. Une touche fleurie se dégage. En bouche, pas grand chose à redire, plein de cerise, palais aigre-doux, facile à boire et encore meilleur avec ce petit fût. Carbonation est minime le tout se mariant parfaitement avec les pralines de Girardin Kriek qui étaient disponible en dégustation dans cet estaminet.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Wässriger Kirschantrunk mit spürbaren Fehlaromen, die etwas muffig, sonst herb und dunkel grasig sind (unpassend). Gefällt mir wenig. /6/7/6//6

Draft at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Brilliant rose red in color, cloudy with minimal head, just bubbles. The aroma is big on cherry and funk with a little bit of butteriness. No butter on the flavor fortunately. Huge fresh cherry notes and only a little sourness. A bit sweet actually, and slightly medicinal. Medium-bodied with very low carbonation. Only a touch of acidity. A solid but not outstanding kriek in all.

nimbleprop (4613) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 22, 2011
From the barrel at Bier Circus in Brussels. Pours a hazy, bright ruby red with some spitty white head. Nose is mild, certainly because of the cask, sweet, candy, light funk, floral. Flavor is sweet, cherries, candy, only light tart, lemon rind, light malt. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Really easy to drink. Lacks the complexity of other krieks but it was pleasant to drink.

Woow! It seemed fabulous to me. It has been offered to me in a small quantity at Le Bier Circus by the boss. I could appreciate it particularity. Sweet and sharp well balanced together. Red coloured without froth. Very impressive.
