Flemish red like aromas with fermenting fruit, amber malts, red wine notes. Very flavourful, not too clean. Nice stuff. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

willisread (2003) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown with some mahogany highlights. Green apple, cherry and muscat on the nose with a light bit of oak. Nose is very vinous. Above average carbonation with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Finish has some dates and more cherry, muscat and a hint of oak and vanilla. A Belgian classic, very drinkable and enjoyable sour. Pairs well with food too.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with small head. Aroma is cherry and oak. Taste is dominated by cherry, but oak, malt and some spices is also present. A good one because its not to sour or as some others, just sour.

sjogro (2078) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
At home, bottle. Clear dark brown with white head. Didn’t expect the dark color! Fruity, sugary sweetness, with sour bend. Roastedness, roasted grain, sour grain, very old fermented cherries, chocolate malts. Over medium sweetness, under medium sour. High pitched sweetness like sugar replacements, aspartame & other crap. Very easy going, a bit too easy, kinda bland and mainly sweet. Enjoyed the kriek much more.

GioPiso (20) - ITALY - MAR 21, 2016
If (like me) you’re not a massive fan of sours, this brown is much more gentle than some of the red ones, not as acidic and leaves a much more pleasureable aftertaste on the palate
