presario (4756) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2004
Initial aroma is of candy-cough drops. After this the aroma is of cherry pie filling. Decent pink head, lasting pink skiff and light pink lacing. Sour cherry flavour but indeed too sweet to be rightly appreciated. Sourness emerges in the finish. Tasty but not enough depth to make me want to purchase another bottle.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Bottle. Very pretty maroon with a pink head. Smells like cherry cough syrup. Excellent tart/sour cherry taste. Very, very good taste. Smooth and not too sweet.

pours a cloudy red with a pink head/ smells like boones farm cheap wines. wow, cherry taste is dominant(of course). very sweet first taste with a bit of yeasty goodness that finishes tart. alcohol taste also comes through even though it is 4% it tastes stronger.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 2, 2004
had this one twice on our trip once bottled in france and other time on draft in antwerp: quite a nice kriek if your into this thing.....served in a huge goblet in antwerp either .33cl or .5cl. beautiful garnet red with a tight pink head...large nose of kriek that tingles if you inhale too much some moist cheese as well. the mouth has nice kriek flavor, not too overpowereing but definately dominant. earthy wood and mold all combined. dry sharp end that made me keep grabbing a sip here and there while i was drinking westmalle dubbel. a solid kriek and i aint one thats big on these.

zach8270 (3745) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [capped and corked 12 oz. bottle] Pours a light red color with a thick and fluffy pink head. Aroma is very earthy with strong hints of cherry. Extremely sweet taste of cherries and syrup with a bubbly body reminiscent of champagne and a slight bitter twinge at the end.

Cork and cherry nose with hints of earth. Candy apple red body with a blush tinted white head. Some lace. Artificial syrupy cherry flavor.

noah (2) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2004 does not count
750 mL bottle. Very strong black cherry smell/taste, just like a Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry soda. Too sweet. Cherry flavor is much too strong and overpowering.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - AUG 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 Fluffy pink-white head sits delicately on top of turbulent rose coloured beer, almost champagne like in appearance. Strong smell of cherries. Huge cherry nose, more sour than sweet. Rather dry finish. Very refreshing.

mongkut4 (132) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2004
This lambic pushes my appreciation of sour over the line. Unlike the Gueuze and Framboise, this one leaves me wanting.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Pours dark ruby...smells of cherry and yeast (go figure)...I don’t like cherry so I don’t really like the sour bitter cherry thing...I do appreciate what this beer is...tart...
