poisoneddwarf (2204) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12.7 oz corked and caged green bottle. I see no vintage; the price tag on it says it came in to Enoteca in April of 2012, so it’s probably a 2011 vintage, but who knows? Pours cloudy ruby-red with a quickly-collapsing pink-white head; leaves a ring of big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of cherries, cherry pits/almonds; nice-smelling, although not quite as assertive as the Cantillon I drank before this. Taste is much more sour and acidic than the Cantillon; lots of cherry flavor. Carbonation is almost flat, finishes dry. Overall, I liked the Cantillon better; it was better in every category, from aroma to palate, but the carbonation was the real clincher--the lack of bubbles made this one especially inferior to my tastes. Still, this is not bad at all--I probably would’ve rated it higher had I not just drank the Cantillon before this.

Habanero (3772) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2016
Bottled. Pours hazy red with a small pinkish head. Aroma of sour cherries, almond and funky notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up tart. Light bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Lambic indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours a pinkish reddish color. Aromas of cherries, almonds. Flavor is a subdued tart cherry taste, not a big as I expected. Medium bodied with a slight tart mouthfeel. This is a great beer.

bnokk (418) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2016
APPEARANCE- vibrant goldenrod color, thinnest of heads and slight turbidity. NOSE- slightly fruity, yet tart. I swear I smell something earthy like moss, but that may be the hype. FLAVOR- I get earthiness here for sure, and a bit of sourness. Very nice balance. NOTES- totally digging it. Super unique, and exceptionally well put together.

weihenweizen (2892) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Refrigerated 12.7 oz. green bottle corked and capped poured into a tulip. Translucent maroon with very small off-white head. Aroma is tart cherry, medium body, very low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is tart cherry, vineous, and some oak. Needs carbonation.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 25, 2015
On tap at Belmont Station. A privilege to try on tap. I was told this was one of only four kegs that made it into the US. Aroma is quite dramatic and full. Bright and fruity, lots of cherry. Taste is quite sour. Really good.

Excellent. Sour cherry and big citrus. Lots of bretta. Tangy finish. Pours this red ruby fingernail polish cover. Thick and syrupy. Great stuff. Tap at Snallygaster.

radagast83 (6781) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Draft at Snallygaster 2015. Thanks to solidfunk for getting the most expensive beer at the festival for all of us. Poured a cloudy, mostly deep ruby red color with a foamy pink head. Aroma was lots of tart cherry notes. Flavor was so mouth pucking it was hard to believe. Lots of tartness, wild funk notes. Almost too tart, but I’ll give it a bit of a pass, but be warned.

neepsntatties (1651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2015
On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...did someone pour me a cherry based fruit smoothie?! Nose...holy crap! The second I got a wiff, my salivary glands started gleeking like crazy! Palate...well...my friend Jim from Reverend Nat’s was sitting near me and said that this was so sour it’d make my "face cave in!". He’s pretty close! Incredibly sour and massively tart, this kriek is unbelievable! The cherries are definitely there but the acetic aspect is sage of the stage, with this baby! Huge tart fruit and light notes of vanilla show on the back palate. Amazing kriek!
