teorn88 (3271) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Backlog rating. 37.5cl bottle from Beers of Europe. It pours a rich ruby color with a small pink-ish head. Aroma is sour and acidic with notes of tart cherries, lemon juice, light funk and dust. Taste is vibrant tartness with more tart cherries, cherry yogurt, lemon juice and grains. Finishes citric and acidic. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, ok kriek

Alengrin (2618) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Traditional (’oude’, i.e. unsweetened and 100% lambic) kriek since the summer of 2006. Pale lilac, delicate, moussy, sticky, stable head, colour a pretty dark ruby red, clear at first but misty with deposit, obviously. Complex and credibly authentic lambic aroma of wine vinegar, old sherry, wet hay, sulphur, oak, lemon juice with a very full, genuine and opulent cherry smell nicely woven into it, as well as a touch of elderberries, which are apparently also used in this one. Citric and fruit acidity attacks the tongue at first, deep fresh fruitiness spreading over the entire mouth cavity, rich lambic, tannins, truckloads of red fruit, sticky and even a bit oily, sour and dry in the finish. I was pleasantly surprised this corporate-owned lambic brewery is capable of making such a rich and bountiful old kriek.

pkomar (176) - 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 (373) - 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 (575) - 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 (2963) - 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 (7475) - 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.
