NosirIwont (2062) - 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.

ekstedt (5808) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Sampled at ZBF 2015. Ruby with pink head. Intense fresh cherry aroma, notes of almond and cinnamon. Light to medium bodied, low carbonation. Semi dry, medium acidity.

markextrae (1674) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2015
Sample at ZBF 15. Poured a dark red colour with no head. (The Guy behind the bar even didn’t cleaned my glass wtf?) notes of sweet chemical amarena cherries, vinegar, horseblanket notes, hay, arteficial. Low carbonated. Very weird. Not plesant

Desverger (3048) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2015
Tap@Fermentoren, Copenhagen - dark red pour with tiny bubbly pinkish head. Aroma and taste is prominent sour cherry, some wooden nuances, some grassy notes, straw, dry finish.

pivnizub (9163) - 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…

Borup (7016) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 4, 2015
From tap. Clear reddish colour with a reddish head. Aroma and flavour of sourness, yeast, cherries, oak and acidic.

AbouAli (190) - 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 (2938) - 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 (2221) - 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.

mmahut (1363) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 10, 2014
Clear darker red body with almost no head. Aroma has cherry, very sweet licorice, light sourness. Taste has cherry sourness with woody notes, no bitterness. Body is full, low carbonation.
