pkomar (42) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Drinking a 5 year old version (2009). Wood, cherries in aroma. A bit of cork in the background. Pours dark red with rather small head. Taste is very sour, cherries, almost no sweetness. Excellent. Medium-high carbonation. Overall a brilliant kriek. Need to check out a bit younger version as well.

crlnts (280) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Tried every year since 2009. 2010 and 2011 were the best. Tart cooked cherries aroma. Red body, browner with aging. The 2009 had lost its kriek aroma, the 2010 and 2011 were the more balanced.

MunBro (337) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Reviewing from notes. Poured a deep auburn/amber. Fizzy pinkish head. Aroma intensely of sour cherries. Flavour of cherries, oak, and some sour vinegar and fruit notes. Decent sour.

AdamJackson (2565) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from Night of the great thirst...or was it Moeder lambic? Anyway, bright red pour, mild head that fades fast. Nose is pretty darn great! I was expecting fake sweetness but the cherry tart nose is really great. Taste is oaky, dry, bursting with fruit and nice calm acidity...a touch of balsamic. finish is smooth and lasting.

mcberko (6333) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy pinkish ruby red with a small pink head. Nose brings out semi-sweetened cherries, very subtle funk, and a little acidity. Flavour brings out lots of very tart cherries, moderate acidity, and low funkiness. No nasty vinegary quality, but very tart and moderately acidic. Very well-balanced – probably the best by the brewery. Great one.

MarcoDL (2150) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
Just like the oude gueuze, this beer has some traits of a real kriek, but tastes sweetened and toned down. A shame.

Theydon_Bois (8395) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle at home, from Beermerchants.com, 12/04/14. Murky cherry red with a moderate crimson covering that retains well. Nose is tarte cherry, musty, woody twang, cherry cough sweets, cherry dipped straw, light smoke. Taste comprises cherry drops, light smoke, tangy berry fruit, soured cherry skins, woody tang, light must, funky twang. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close laced with tarte cherries notes. Ok fruit lambic, pretty approachable, not too acidic.
