3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, dark ruby red, with a pink head.
Wonderfully fruity, complex aroma, cherries, blackcurrants, citrus, funk, wheat, grass, blackberries, mineral, wood, wool.
Dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Fruity, acidic, tart taste, cherries, pits, blackberries, funk, wood, grapes, citrus peel, grass, earth.
The taste is almost so compact that it is off-putting in a way. It is packed with fruit like something from 3 Fonteinen, but it lacks the elegance and the balance of a "proper" Lambic (supposing that they are using a cultivated Brett strain for this one). A bit more complexity, maybe? Reminds me more of a top class Lambrusco than a "real" Kriek. Enjoyable even so. (2013-07-26)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An unclear dark red beer with a pink head. The aroma has notes of cherries and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries, and brettanomyces, leading to a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a cloudy, opaque red with a purple aroma. Odd, tart cherry yoghurt aroma - not entirely pleasant. Light body, dry cherry notes, again yoghurt but more dry than really tart. Loads of great cherries, but nothing to back them up. Disappointing to be honest. 260713

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet but with a dryness/tartness, a dull sour cherry taste pervades and is a very full mouth feel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mörkröd öl med ett rosrött bubbligt, men stort skum. Doftar, körsbär en masse, tillsammans med en lätt syrlighet. Även i smaken dominerar en naturlig och fin körsbärssmak, lätta fattoner. Balanserad surhet. Döljer sina 8,2% mer än väl.

massive aroma of cherries and vinegar, very natural cherry aroma. Dark red with a small dark pink head. Vinegary with loads of cherries, dry and a bit acidic. Extremely nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep red almost purple. Big pink head, dissipates fairly quick. Aroma dominated by cherry with subtle vinegar, smells a lot like wine. Flavor follows, enjoyable, but very much like drinking wine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at PIB, pours a dark amber / purple with and a small pink head. Aroma brings out cherries, oak barrels, and wood. Flavour brings out intense cherries, wood, and more cherries. Even though it’s very cherry dominated, the cherries are slightly more subdued than in Spontankriek. Complex and well-made, though not that different from the base beer. Excellent.
