NosirIwont (2103) - Aalborg Vestby, - NOV 17, 2012
Bag-in-a-box. 5.0%. Pours a clear deep ruby, no head. Soft aroma, with cherry, wood and vanilla. Well-balanced. Flavour is tart to sour, with spicy cherry, wood and bread notes; again, well-balanced, but slightly cloying. Dry, bread finish with light cherry. Overall quite good; the cherry isn’t overdone, but is well-balanced, and the sourness is subdued, making it easy to drink. 17.11.12.

bastarda (176) - 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.

Freiburg testing - courtesy of Bartlebier, many thanks Franck! Fut de 10L! Couleur rouge sans mousse. Nez de cerises légèrement vineux. Gout très sec fruits et cerises légèrement aigres, note lactique et houblonnée avec petite amertume, vraiment pas courant ds les krieks. Super nickel!

jaghana (4488) - 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.

pivnizub (9166) - 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 (195) - 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.
