This was an abolute smashing hit from a recent tasting. Gorgeous ruby color with a delictable rose colored head. Aroma of sourness, wet wood, and light cherries. Serious sour flavor, but not overwhelming a one of the most subtle, wonderful cherry flavors ever. Not overly dry and my stomach didnít hurt after drinking this. A masterpiece.

This ainít Sam Adams cherry wheat - there are lots of real cherries in this one, and you can taste them! The taste is tart like cherries should be, and the appearance is gorgeous. All in all one of the best beers I know of, and itís a real tragedy that the brewery has gone out of business. Laseterís Tavern in Atlanta has had this in the past, but if you take the last one be prepared for a fight ;)

rederic (2911) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2005
Bright pale cherry red hue. Pours with almost no head, tart, vinous, acidic cherry aromas, follow through a sharpness, tartness palate with a dry bone flavors a very long winey finish. A very good traditional pure kriek lambic the way i like it.

#800 for me. Bottled in 2003. I canít believe the best before date is 2023... thereís no way I could wait that long. Gorgeous deep red beer with a thick sticky pink lace sitting on top. Aroma of fresh cherries, a touch of funkiness, and a light tartness. As the beer warms the fruit becomes more intense with obvious black cherry notes. Flavour however was a bit less than expected. Faint cherry fruit, light sourness, and a subtle dustiness. The palate was fairly watery and the flavours that the aroma promised just werenít delivered. Improved as it warmed, but still not spectacular. Thanks cheesecloth.

I know that there are folks in Belgium trying to resuruct this brewery. I found a bottle at Toronado in San Francisco last week. It is an amazing beer; a beautiful red color with a pink head and so sour that it makes you pucker.

Cloudy, pinkish orange color with a light pink head. Barnyard funk and sour cherry aroma. Extremely sour cherry, barnyard funk, hay and lemon flavors. Very crisp, tingly feel with an extremely dry sour finish. Very good!

Cloudy, murky deep amber color with a pinkish head. The aroma was real funky...barnyard funkiness...hay, wet animal fur, tart cherries. The flavor was quite tart (me likes)...cherries, lemon powder, grass. The feel was very crisp and completely dry. Thanks BBB63!

Beautifuly red in color with a pink head. The nose is tart with the obvious smell of cherries. to the first tast it folowed thru with classic lambic sour tast followed by charries and all brought together with the sweet smaking of my lips. the beer seems to be very carbinated for a kriek in general let alone one a couple of years old. Delicieous and Unforgetable my favoriet Kriek.
