marcus (7222) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours red with a pretty pink head and a raspberry aroma. There is an earthy raspberry and pale malt flavor with a long dry bitter finish. Not delicate like the good Belgian krieks, but still a worthwhile quaff.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
A deep red pour with a small pink head. Aroma is primarily of cherry skin with a light funkiness. Most of the funk is earth, cheese, and must. A touch of oak and even some sweet grape juice. A little vinegar, too. The flavor has lots of cherry sweetness, mild tartness/vinegar, and some oak. Moderate funkiness in the form of cheese and must. Might be a little lemon peel in the background.

77ships (4858) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2012
Thx! to Bart for this one // 375 ml. bottle tastes alongside the Spontangrape @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // 7.7 % Kriek “lambic” brewed by the Proef for Mikkeller // label is pleasing, same design as the others of the series, more of a cranberry hue // nice design // poured in a Martin’s IPA teku // appearance of this one is absolutely stellar, incredibly bright ruby, head is small, pinkish & bit sad but the colour of the beer itself, damn that is bright // smell is unfortunately a bit light, not picking up much, some light cherry (not kriek) grenadine, candy sugar, hint lemon acid & dust // taste is very simple lemon acidity, very straightforward, reasonable level of sourness, very light barnyard, wood, some minor cherry grenadine thrown in the back, ridiculously simple attempt at a kriek lambic, lambic are probably the most complex beverage known to man & given how one note, simple with a dash of cherry grenadine in the end this is, yeah, this dull dude, dull // Grape, basic, cassis were also very simple & basic but given the fact that the kriek is just some minor cherry grenadine in this one, feels like an incredibly week attempt to copy Cantillon Kriek // I am convinced now that these “lambic’s” were made using bacteria’s in order to mimic the real one, the lack of complexity is yeah … // sour beers is an art & Proef is technique which doesn’t work in this uncontrollable style & this kind of shows it // his oud bruin beers are supposed to be pretty nice (Proef), I don’t really know where they were going with this one // oily, quite well carbonated // acidity remains in the mouth // don’t see much aging potential, expect this to just go even further down the hill

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 30, 2012
cherry, barnyard, grass and hey in the aroma. Dark pink, pink head. Lacking in sour- and acidness. Tasty though. Maybe a bit too young(?). Good Kriek though but was expecting more
