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.

Tmoney99 (13595) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy reddish color with an average frothy reddish head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour cherry aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium sour cherry flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Sour refreshing brew.

Svesse (7930) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2006
(Bottle) Red colour with orange tinges and frothy, white, brief head. Hazy with sediment, clear without. Fruity, sourish nose with distinct cherry aromas, notes of red-currant and stable, a hint of smoke (or rather the aroma of freshly lit matches). Acidity drawing slightly in the vinegar direction. Musty and fresh at the same time. Fresh, sour taste with cherries and red-currant, a hint of raspberries as well. Very dry, but not harsh. Very fresh compared to most traditional krieks, but still with the dryness and acidity that is characteristic for the style. Brilliant!

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2006
Hazy reddish-brown hue, with an off-white head, musty nose, with a barnyard accent, with an almondy cherryish note, a bit dusty, wet oakiness and tartness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart acidic cherryish character, less agressive than expected, but still having the traditional lambic aspect, with an oakiness note, nice sourness and sharpness, wet wood accent, leading towards a dry tartness finish.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2006
Bottle. Ohh, a nice aroma of sourish fruits spreads immediately. Hazy red colour with a short pink head. The flavour woke me up, it’s really acidic, too much in my opinion. Short fruity finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2006
Red-brown and hazy with a small head. Intense musty sour cherry aroma with some vinegar. The taste begins smooth and sweet before the spicy sourness hits the taste buds and then recedes to leave a final dryness.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 10/17/2006 Bottled deep red in color with a sweet cherry and sour nose. The flavor is lots of sour cherries, rather sweet, with that nice oaky finish. Krieks aren’t my favorite but this was still enjoyable. 6/3/7/4/13 = 3.3

Rerate 12/30/07 from my SS. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Lots of hay and sour notes in the nose with residual sugars. Funky flavors. Hay and sour with must, a cherry fruityness, and a sugars straight out of the white packet. The sweetness had enough balance with sour tannins and funk to not bother me too much. The sweetness seemed to fade as it warmed. Enjoyable. 8/4/7/4/15 = 3.8
