yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2007
37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy red-brownish with a pink crispy head leaving a creamy lacing. Slight sweet and clearly sour cherries, minor sulphor note. Woody and earthy flavoured with a sourness going through from start to finish. Clear yeasty notes together with cherries. Decent but not great.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2004
An unclear red with no head. The aroma is of sweet cherry. The flavor is sweet and sour of cherries. A lovely beer. A lot better than the first time I tried it (at the brewery 2 years ago} - my tastebuds must hav evolved.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 (Bottle 75 cl) In this version called "Kriek Oud-Beersel" at 6% ABV. Faint reddish colour with a smal pink head. The sour , vinegary notes hit you as soon as the cork is removed and the tartness continue all the way through. This is a very traditional sour lambic, but lacks some finesse. Not really any trace of cherries - apart from the colour. 130498

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2007
Bottled (Thanks mabjork!). Murky reddish brown colour with big pinkish head. Aroma is sour cherries and earth. Earty and very sour hints in the flavour, the cherries come stronger in the finish and aftertaste.

Clear red. Nice fruity aroma. Acidic, tart. Complex and fresh. Good, but not as good as their gueuze.

Hazy red beer. Sour nose with a trace of cherry. Dry palate. Tart beer, has some cherry but has as much, if not more, acid lemon. Finishes sour and dry. Ho hum!

Generous pink head, persistent; cloudy red-amber color. Mature aroma, wood, cherry stones, light sourness and light dust. It’s highly carbonated, but smooth as well; the body is weaker than expected; there is a light cherry flavor and sourness; the final is weak and dry.
With the age it lost some body, reduced the sourness and didn’t gain enough complexity.

Hazy amber color; giant head, compact; fine and persistent perlage. Strong Lambic aroma, sour, with a sharp cherry note, and cherry kernels, magnesia. Aggressive mouthfeel, sharp, dry, sour, a bit astringent, with just a touch of fruits. Very good!
