Not going to lie, I liked this one. Nice balance between cherry and sour flavors. In my book this is a good substitute for cantillon.

"nice cherry tinged brick red, but no head though not flat. aroma of both sweet and sour cherries and some barnyard funk. feel is tingly and acidic. flavor pops, lip smackingly tart and sour, but the cherry is not to be a background player. nice balance and close to a 10 flavor wise."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from notes. Pours a nice ruby red color with a small creamy pink hued head. The aroma has sour cherries, barnyard funk, wet wood, lemon citrus, herbs, and a hint of yogurt. The flavor has sour cherries, oak, tannic notes, lemon, lactic acid, yogurt, and vinegar. Sour cherries linger with a hint of vanilla sweetness.

Sweeter fruitiness than 3 Fonteinen. Lovely dark cherry-ruby color with a small pink-red foam. A bit of spices in the aroma, complex tartness, sweet-sour cherries. Great taste. A good Kriek!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
$11.55 for the 375ml bottle, bottled in January 2014.
It pours a murky dark red, reddish head of foam, reddish lacing.
I can sure smell the sour cherries and oak. Delightful.
Sour cherries and the woody oak in the taste with some hints of vanilla, I find a near perfect level of sourness. If I want a tad more, I simply swish the beer in my mouth. I reckon some time in a cellar could do even more for this brew.
About medium bodied, light carbonation.
This is very good indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh 37,5cl bottle bb08/2032, slightly aged (3-6mths) bottles on earlier occasions. gorgeous deep ruby with pink head, vibrant with decent natural carbonation. Spiced nose of mulled wine, cinnemon and winter kitchen rack over red wine in a box, cherry pit with bitter almond characteristics. Taste is spicier than manynother krieks as well, with again that mulled/cinnemon aspect distracting from the natural cherry skin tartness. Odd chloric, decongealed thaw water notes mix in with flowery perfumes, wild moist pastures after Belgian rainpours. Some cherry balsamico, upfront lactic sourness remains manageable. All in all rather unfocussed when fresh, improves considerably in aging, while remaining always easy and quenching drinking.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from etregourmet.be webshop. Pours a hazy pink body with a small white head. Nose is strong horseblanket and stable tones, hay, straw, lemon acid, cherries, hints of grains and wood. Taste is cherries, hay, lemon, citric peel, horse blanket, hints of wood and straw. Medium body, medium high carbonation. Very nicely balanced, yet both funky and tart kriek. Lovely stuff.
