1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Was quite drunk when had this but I can remember the aroma was just wrong. Smelt like horse blanket and urine. Taste wasn’t much better either. Couldn’t finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of a moderate tart and lightly sweet cherries mixed with baby diapers, lemon, and faint must. It pours a hazy reddish-orange with a small pinkish head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tart and let sweet cherry. The finish has moderate sour lemon, must, and faint cork. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark blood red with a small browny head. Nose is shocking. It smells like a horse has taken a dump on a hay stack then rubbed itself in it. Not enjoying the aroma at all. Taste is moderately better as it isn’t so intensely ’horse hitty’ and the tarty cherry notes take over a little but it still isn’t exactly pleasing stuff. Not my kind of sour at all. Maybe the bottle was off? But it’s a sour so it should be ’horse blankety’ or something? Who knows. Horse shit is all I know

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of a SAQ private import. Pours a hazy red colour with particles floating around. The head is pink-red coloured, fizzing away quickly and with no lacing at all. Aromas of cherries, wood and sourness. The sourness is more present in the taste lasting the hold way. The cherry taste is kind of hidden, but the wood is still there. Hint of plastic in the flavours. Bottled June 7th 2011 with a best before date of June 2017. 2010 edition and No. 05108 written on label. Not a bad Kriek, but nothing exceptional.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Dranken Pauwels. Looks beautiful out of the bottle. Deep red burgundy, murky, bright like a new world red wine. Nose is almost as good as it gets for fresh Kriek. Deep baked meringue, white sugar, fresh cherry, sweet cherry, sour brambly apples, little farmyard and horse blanket, bit of funk, bit of cherry Bakeweel tart, lots of deep cherry fragrance, bit of red wine vinous. Taste is the sour dominating, green white flesh Bramley apples, acidic, tart, and then some cherry sweetness. This is very good, like a fine red wine. Some nice depth of flaour with the cherry and tartness and slight red wine tannin complexity.
