DutchMark (134) - 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 (4348) - 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 (13) - 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 (3004) - 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.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Ruby red, pink head. Smell of funk, tart cherries, some fruityness and malts. Light sweet, tart cherries, medium sour, nice lactic acids, some fruityness. Bone dry. A superb kriek!

Whatup14 (691) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Bouteille 375ml. Couleur rouge foncé laissant filtrer la lumière, mousse rosée crémeuse. Arôme de levures sauvages, boisé, terreux, fruité, confiture de cerise, alcool. Goût de cerise, acidité moyenne, levures sauvages moins présentes qu’au nez, un peu sucré. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen.

JakobHoumoller (16) - DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear ruby color. The aroma has notes of lactic acid, oak, tannins and sour cherries. The taste is sour cherries, oak and tannins. Very dry sour finish. Nice, but not as nice as some other offerings.

Frovigalning (2933) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers in Gent. Smell of berries, cherries and almonds. Similar taste, tart but not overpowering. Nice fruitiness but I would have prefered it more tart.

electrotype (208) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
D’une belle couleur rosée qui imbibe la mousse. Au nez, la cerise vieillies en grottes! C’est très bon en bouche, le sucré n’est pas excessif, le côté surette est bien présent et il y a une âme assez sombre qui englobe le tout...
