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.

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

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Deep red y color and a thin white head. Aroma of cherry and sour. The taste is very sour, distand sour cherry and red wine. Taste mostly like other kriek i drank so far . Bière de couleur rouge sang avec un mince collet blanc. Odeur de cerises et surette. Au goût, elle est vraiment très surette avec un goût subtle de cerise et de vin rouge. Elle goût sensiblement comme toute les autres Kriek que j’ai goûter jusqu’à maintenant.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Poured from 12,7 oz bottle. Pours deep orange/light amber with white wispy head. Offensive rotten sweet aroma. Stonger on the palate with ridiculously sour taste. This overpowers any hope of recognizing most of anything except a faint hint of cherries. Not that good.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2006
I am so sorry, but this is not very tasty. Looks great (reddish copper) but it’s extremely sour (meaning lots of acidity). Distant cherry taste and very carbonated. Sort of funky smell (reminds me horse droppings). If I would say one thing that this tastes like it would be carbonated rasberry vinegar. Again: Sorry! I’d love to like this but I can’t. It’s just too vile. I suppose this is ment to be served as apertiffe but I don’t think I would like as that neither.
