4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Akkurat in February 2013. (vintage 2003, we also tried a bottle from 1998 but the on from 2003 was tastier so I rate that one)
Clear ruby with a small head. Aroma of sour cherries, some wood, dust and funk. The taste was nicely sour with cherries, wood, vinegar and funk. Medium carbonation and a light body. The finish was dry. A very nice one!

Taster at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 25th May 2011, courtesy of tdtm82. Bright, slightly hazy red. Nose has vinegar, tar, glace fruit. Just a teensy teensy bit sour... makes the previous beer taste like pear juice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweeter, but also more sour compared to Cantillons kriek. Big strawberry notes. Maybe not as complex and deep as other offerings, but sure drinkable and nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Birra intrigante e seducente come il canto di una sirena, ti avvolge con la sua sinfonia di ciliegie abbandonandoti in un limbo di acidità travolgente e pervasiva, piacevole come un sogno idilliaco. Una kriek davvero impeccabile. Hanssens è un vero maestro.
