This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

CraftBeerNick (1838) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
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

esp0r (2679) - NORWAY - OCT 11, 2015
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!

Cimbasso (693) - - SEP 13, 2015
Sampled from a shared bottle at the Cardinal, Stavanger at a beer tasting in August 2015. Ruby colour, with a rich taste of cherries, old burgundy and hints of wood and leather. Not too vinegary, but with a subtle and complex sour taste. Very interesting and full, fruity flavour. Refreshing and very individual. Excellent beer.

willisread (2211) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly cloudy light burgundy with very little head that dissipates fairly quickly. BIg cobweb and basement aromas with very tart cherry, cranberry and plum on the nose. Lots of cherry stone and sour cherry on the palate with good basement, musty notes as well. Bone dry with a slightly agressive dry tartness on the finish. Excellent!

Fruity aromas. Golden color, a bit hazy liquid. Medium sweetness, not much bitterness and medium-heavy sourness. Fresh taste of cherries. Not too sour or too sweet! Not much carbonation. A great kriek from Hanssens, definitely one I will drink again.
