Een van de lekkerste bieren dat ik ooit gedronken heb. Echt een aanrader, een pak beter dan hun oude geuze

rbrazell (1687) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Beet juice colored pour with a big frothy pink head. Cheesy, oaky, funky, earthy aroma, acidic citrus, brandied plums and bright cherry notes. Funky, cheesy yeast up front with pucker tart, citrus acid mid palate with juicy ripe cherries coming in through the back end. Bright, vibrate and young. Very solid, readily available Kriek.

poech73 (202) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
Kriek très portée sur le fruit brasser comme un vin tellement le maltage disparaît sous les arômes de fruit. Le nez est très fruité et floral : cerise, cerise amère, acidité pas d’amertume, levure. En bouche, la gorgée donne l’impression de manger du fruit. Le maltage fait ressortir fort le coté fromenté. La fin est surette avec un arrière goût boisé qui assèche la langue sur un houblonnage minéral très légèrement astringent. Abords très vineux pour cette kriek à boire et à reboire!

cmacklin (294) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours an unclear, dark red colour with a huge, frothy, long lasting pink head that laces. Sweet and sour aroma of cherries, fruit and yeast. Sweet and sour flavour of cherries with yeasty notes and a dry, acidic finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

DutchMark (170) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Very good. Mildly sweet and pleasantly sour. A totaly natural cherry flavor that does not overwhelm the lambic flavors. There is also some element of minerals (chalk, metal). Small pink head and prickly carbonation. Dry finish.

Cunningham (4629) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
A fine dark red color (almost clear) with a small pink head. Cherry aroma! A fine body, with a balanced sweetness and moderate sourness. Quite balanced. Nice to sit in a warm summer night with this one. Pleasant and tasty. Lots of cherry in the flavor, but not any power overload stuff. Balanced and smooth. A bit dry ending.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, Norway]

Alexd8 (29) - Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Beau rouge cerise, mousse tenace se terminant sur un léger cercle. De la griotte, du basilic, du thym et du romarin se partage la première impression pour continuer sur des arômes boisés, d’amandes et de noisettes fraîches. Des notes de chlore se pointe de façon impromptue. Attaque vive et nerveuse, milieu de bouche enrobant, finale sèche et sûre. Le tout vineux et bien carbonisé. Un peu cherry-blossom (serait-ce une impression de cacao?) en rétro-olfaction. Bel équilibre en général.

Bamsen78 (3224) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle @ Le Poechenellekelder, Brussels. Pours hazy cherry red with small dark pink head. Clear, vinous aroma with notes of cherries and touches of yeast. Vinous flavour with cherrylike, estery and, well... metallic touches. Mild, vinous aftertaste. Okay but I am not thoroughly convinced.
