Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Cherry-red with a medium pink head. Aroma of freshly baked raspberry muffin/cake. Fruity taste is fronted by cherries but also contain elements of all kinds of fruits in the berries families. Some oak/wood in there too. By "real krieks" (non-sweetened) standard this one has medium acidity and medium sourness. A lot less funky than say a Cantillon or a Hanssens. Body lack vigour. Iíve had it much much better overseas but the batch we got in quebec in early 2007 just isnít cutting it. This rating is for the last batch. Not a bad beer at all but doesnít compare to the above mentioned classics. I dream of a Kriek creek.

Murky red color with a fine lasting pinkish head. Nice tart cherry aroma with characteristic lambic notes of wood, grapefruit and tart vinegar. Dominating tart woody flavor with sour cherries and lemon notes. Dry mouthfeel with a bit of fruit sweetness in the finish. A marvelous kriek, very tart yet balanced.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle. Pink high and long lasting head. Hazy red body. Hoppy aroma with just a hint of cherries. More grape fruit flavor than cherries. Or maybe sour cherries if something like that exist.

frankenkitty (1984) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2006
A deep, ruby body under an explosive, fluffy head of strawberry ice cream. Ancient, funky aroma of moldy basement carpeting and long-lost Chuck Taylors... revealing sour cherry coughdrops and the used bubble gum that Jukkabro stuck to the underside of his Finnish table. Cheek-pinching tartness begins a flavor that is mostly unwashed cherries, coated in a soft haze of dirt. Red wine follows with a finish akin to licking salt from tin. Overzealous carbonation dries the flavor and distends my belly, leaving a wake of gas and acid. 1200 beers and I still feel like Lambics are some sort of a cruel Belgian joke.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2006
Dark red colored, medium sized pink head. Mildly cloudy aroma. Aroma is rich with sour cherries and slight and good sweetness, again this good slight bubble gum comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor has milder cherries than in aroma, good sourness with fruits in there too. Aftertaste lasts with sourness. Good and balanced lambic!

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Red body with a ruby head. Sweet and sour aroma and taste, mouth puckering. Cherries and raspberries dominate, some musky earth tones as well. Very nice overall.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Thanks to Matta for this one, another winner. The pour was hazy magenta with a 2-finger light pink head. Aroma of tart cherries, funky yeast, peaty woodsy malt. The flavor was tart, heavily cherry-laden, with some peaty oaky malt notes coupled with some funky yeast notes. Stays tart, but with a good amount of sweetness; at least enough to offset the tartness.

On tap at the Publick House in Boston - Pours ruby red with an ample head. Thereís a very nice aroma of slightly sour cherries. The flavor is at once sweet and sour. Thereís enough sugariness that you wonít pucker, but enough sour fruit flavors that youíre not overwhelmed with sweetness. Thereís also some mild spice present. Itís good, itís refreshing and interesting, and I really think it has a flavor that many would enjoy greatly, not just the major beer aficionados.

On tap at Town Hall. This was rather flavorless. I will revisit this but as for now, I am letdown as I now really like Lambics.
