GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Nice raspberry color with a white head. Very sour! Very Lambic! Very flavorful, sweatsocks with a cherry/green apple finish. Tastes similar to Boston Beerworks Cherry Bomb in some ways.

Maroon with fluffy pink head. Lots of cherry in the aroma, like a Shasta Black Cherry soda. Not as much on the flavor, which got progressively better as it warmed, by taking off the vinegar edge.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Not my favorite lambic, pours out pinkish cloudy with a big bubbly head that is also pink. Pink just doesnt seem so much like what I am looking for in a beeer, but here it is. Aroma of sour cherry vingegar, if there was such a thing. Flavor is sour, with more of that funk that is hard to explain but so common in these lambic sour brews.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2005
Pours a cloudy red color with a medium bubbly pink head standing proudly on top of it, the head leaves a nice coat of lace on the glass. Excellent aroma of dusty, sour cherries with mild cheese. Excellent flavor of sour cherries with mild cheese and a good dose of acidity. The body is light with a very dusty mouthfeel ans strong carbonation. As with the Oud Beersel Oude Gueuze the kriek is just right, nicely balances and very well-made, I would drink this all day.

RichardGretton (4379) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2005
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is sour and fruity and the flavour is lightly sour. Overall a plain kriek in my opinion.

Bov (10204) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 25, 2005
very cloudy and dark reddish brown colour with a big, rose-tainted foamy head, beautiful lace; powerful and charming aroma of cherry and vinegar meeting notes of cheese and hay; the mouthfeel is surprisingly thin for a beer at 6.5% but some help comes immediately with a long dry and beautiful aftertaste of sour cherries and rhubarb

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 unpleasant presence, lingering memory, fruit, on a killing spree. fruit trying to hurt you. unfriendly fruit. people who drink this beer must want to hurt themselves! A masochistic brew! By the way, this is sour as all heck. It tastes much more like a dry (cherry?) wine than beer. No sweetness. I don’t dislike all things sour either... it just doesn’t need to be the ONLY thing I can taste. A real puzzler. To be fair, this style probably just isn’t for me yet. You can ginore my rating if you’re into sour, dry cherry lambic, but if you’re expecting something at all like the lindeman’s lambic most of the few who have tried lambic in the US have had, you’re not gonna get it out of this. Something I’ll keep an open mind to, but really did not enjoy.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottle, dark ruddy red pour. Aroma of sour cherry and yeasty. Tart malty yeast flavors, and some cherry, and a dry light bitter finish. Good, but I like the Oud Beersel Gueuze better.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Rerate: Bottle huge thanks to Mes&sim bottled in 2001, from the origonal brewery. I had decided to make diner for pauline, which i do most nite, but decided something different tonite. I knew there was a pile of old fkiek in my cellar and decided to do something with it. So a trip to lidl and i decided to make some fajita’s but with a slight differance, kriek fajita’s! So 1 red, green and yellow pepper and a super large onion cut into strips and placed to the side, 500g of chicken also cut into thin strips. Heat oil in pan, add chicken till almost cooked through, add inoin for a min then add peppers, stir-fry for 2 mins before seasoning with cajun spice and a few other things to taste. Right at the death add about 100ml of kriek and serve a min later, My god what a smell the cajun kriek is amazing! Pour the rest of the bottle into a decent belgiun glass it has a large punk head, better than even i expected for being 7 years old. Aroma is like yee haa, loads of lambic funk and rounded sharp yeastyness with the cherry adding the right amounf of fruity sweetness. Taste is outstanding, one of the best in beer, the dry yeasty tart fuck with the cherry character just more than subtle adding more than just cherry ness to it, i could do this for a long time, like this finished and i was upset. I’ll not be able to get another bottle from the origional brewery for a good year or two if at all. A masterpieice and something all krieks are trying to be! No#62. I keep thinking im rating beers to highly these days and feel i should be takling poiints off, but the beers on this trip just blew me away. Aroma is sour, oaked, light cherryness, with a red wine vinigar coming in. Taste is very similar with a kind of sweet and sour cherryness dominating, red wine is also having a part to play, with a dry finish. Another excellent lambic from the trip.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Crazy sour vinegar nose, smells like a stale musty barnyard with a hint of sour cherries. Pours a deep burgundy/brick red hue and makes a fizzy pink head. Flavor is vinegary, hint of sour cherries, tastes very much like a sour red wine... very tart and astringent, hint of cranberry. Light on the palate, coats the mouth very thin and finishes quite dry. Nice quality lambic, moderately complex, enjoyed this one.
