3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.375 l bottle from ’belgiuminabox’, best before August 2027. Clear, deep red, no head. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky aroma of sour cherries, redcurrant, sweat, bitter almond and oak. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky taste of sour cherries, redcurrant, oak, a bit of varnish and elderberry, followed by a short, very tart, dry finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and astringent mouthfeel, no carbonation. Due to the lack of any carbonation this feels a bit bland. Taste is still very intense and sour, especially in the finish, but it lacks a final kick. A bit of carbonation would have eased up the acidity as well.

Bottle from a bottle shop in Belgium. Fruity and tart smell with cherries. Deep fruity taste, a bit salty with sour backbone. Nice!

Murky dark cherry hue with a thin pink head. Earthy funky tart cherry nose, dark Belgian malts, sour yeast and wild earthiness. Big fresh cherry flavor, very bright, very clean with nice bright tart sour funk. Bit of strawberry throughout. Sweet cherry on the finish with a gentle touch of sour acidity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Acidic, tart, yeasty, barnyard, lots of vinegar, not that fruity.
Reddish color, medium head.
Enjoyable and very powerful tartness, low bitterness, not that fruity, a bit too one dimensional.
Medium body, tart finish.

Bottle at Nuetnigenough, 14th October 15. Pours nice dark pink, good. Aroma is cherry, funk, sour. Taste is fantastic, cherry jumps out, rich, full depth of flavour, some cherry stone and slight bitterness of skin, well balanced and spot on. Great Kriek, one of my favourites

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Drøbak by night 2015
Pours pink, quite hazy with almost no head. Smell of cherries, funk, some woody tendensies, cherry stones, hints of oak and some light malts. The funky part is mostly barnyard stuff and stable. Light to moderate sweet, a distinct flavor of sour cherries up front, medium sour, nice acids, tart berries, complex funky brett flavors, a blast! Moderate bitter, cherry stone finish. A very nice kriek!
