Bottle shared by Travlr: pours an effervescent bright ruby with a large froth of pink head. Has a fresh fruity cherry nose with some light funk and vinous oak. Starts with good carbonation and smooth light malty sweetness with some sweet fruity notes and oaky complexity before a drier puckering finish. True to style and enjoyable.

magnum shared by julienhuxley, thanks bro. pours hazy/cloudy bright red with a frothy purplish head demonstrating very good retention and lacing. fresh ripened cherries and its sassy-sweet meat, fresh cinnamon, light and well integrated acidity - blend of lactic, citric and closing with acetic notes in an almost american fashion, red wine, nicely astringent, grass and pepper. bright if not prickly champagne-like carbonation, light to medium body - feels just a tad heavy, sweetish and astringent zinfande-ish tart finish. very tasty - yet this concotion seemed more american than its american attemps on a kriek, ref. bullfrog le roar grrrz kriek. enjoyed!

From a magnum shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Pours a nice red with a medium "loose" (big bubbles) pink head that leave some lacing. Nose is just cherries. Taste is of cherries and fruit juice, a bit heavy but never too acidic at least. Body was medium, carbonation medium-high and spritzy. Overall a fine oude kriek.

Magnum. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy bright red with a frothy diminishing off-white/pinkish head and little lacing. Aroma is of bright cherries (a ton!) with acetic presence, herbal notes and light spiciness. Taste is also dominated by cherries with a medium acetic presence, light spiciness and herbal notes. Medium/full body. Lively carbonation. Dry finish. The bright cherries are nice, but like the Oude Gueuze it’s quite heavy and it hinder the drinkability.

JulienHuxley (3132) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2014
Magnum shared at tasting. Orangey Pink-red pour with light pink head. Aroma of intense cherries, fairly potent acetic notes, light spice. Taste is sour, lots of good cherry flavor but with a slightly puckering acetic flavor. Palate is dry with prickly carbonation, this is almost american it seems. Interesting.

aleksander9 (439) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
Clear red. Aroma is light cherries, raspberry, citrus and some red candy. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, bitter, fruity and some dry tartness. Overall: crazy big bottle bomb. Too subtle.

750mL bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, pours a clear amber with a very large beige head. Nose brings out lots of complex champagne yeast, light cherries and sparkling water. Flavour is certainly unusual, with loads of intense cherries, medium barnyard funk, and loads of champagne yeast. The brut nature of this dominates, though it certainly tastes like a lambic. Intensely high carbonation, which is a bit much for me, but it works well. Never had anything like this. Wonderful stuff.

djd07 (3588) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Magnum thanks to Matt. Pours a cloudy amber ruby hue with thick frothy off white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong oak, cherry skin, and funk. Medium mouthfeel with strong funk, cherry, oak, easy to drink, very impressive.

Tasted on 2/7/14 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this gusher. Pours clear copper/pink with a huge off-white head that slowly recedes to average, rocky lace. The nose is pure sour cherry with a touch of vanilla and funk. The flavor is very sour and vinous, once again dominated by the sour cherry, a touch of funk and a hint of vanilla oak. The body is medium with super lively carbonation and a long vinous sour cherry finish.

750ml bottle shared at Jack & Leighton’s Birthday Bash at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 13 April 2013. Thanks to whoever brought it along. Pink and highly carbonated - probably a bit too fizzy for my liking. Appealing tart cherry fruit aroma. Sharp, but not overly acidic on the palate. But a touch of sweetness and a vague cherry bomb candy impression in the flavour knocked it back somewhat for me. Somewhat different to the regular Oud Beersel Oude Kriek and probably just about on a par.
