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.

Bamsen78 (2968) - 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 (678) - 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.

Pink head, lasting. Ruby. Aroma is almond, cherries, sour. A nice kriek, not too sweet.

Frovigalning (2928) - 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 (204) - 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...

tricksta_p (901) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Fruity aroma of sour cherries, some oak, some barnyard funk. Flavour is fruity, cherry, nicely sour. Cherry sweetness is kept to an absolute minimum, which is my preference. None of that artificial sweetener crap, this is the real deal. Wonderful Kriek.

Huhzubendah (2415) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Gorgeous appearance, as is typical of Belgian kriek lambics. Dark ruby body with a thick, creamy lavender cap. The aroma is musty funk and cherry. The flavor is a showcase for the cherries, with additional notes of earth, nuts, cherry pit, hay, wet basement. This is a particularly good bottle of this beer. A fairly common bottle as far as lambics are concerned. I should keep this in stock. Recommended.

RussianDragon (327) - - JUN 14, 2014
12.7 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark red color with a bright pink head that leaves frothy lacing. Aroma is cherries and tart fruit sweetness. Flavor is moderate sweet, dry grassy fruitiness, with sour tart cherries and hint of vanilla. Oily mouthfeel and sparkling carbonation. Quenching, dry finish.
