The nickname for this beer at my bar is "Cherry Battery Acid" - Iíve had nothing quite so tart. Still, amazing.

CyborgX (38) - THAILAND - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle - pours deep red, with a short lived red head. Aroma of sour cherries. Definitely in the sour beer class. Taste is cherries, but the overpowering dominant flavour is sour sour sour. IMHO I love cherries, evennsour cherries, but there is ALWAYS a hint of sweetness in cherries, here there is none, and the beer suffers because of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 Aroma: Funky, horse blanket, wild cherry, little hint of almond. Appearance: Hazy dark red, really nice and long-lasting foam, nothing to complain. Taste: True Oude Gueuze starts here, lots of cherries, not much sweetness, very sour, still noticeable funky smell, finish kinda bitter and tart with warm feeling. Overall: really decent example of Oude Kriek, still not top-notch, but enjoyable

SarkyNorthener (4133) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle from wine seller, Compton. Dark garnet beer with small pinkish head that forms puddles on the surface. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is dark cherry and a little wood. Not as rich in the aroma as I was hoping. Taste is a little more muted than others of this style. Some dark cherries, light sourness, a little funk and a build up of tart cherry drops in the finish. This one is a beer that warms to you. Excellent.

Fantastica!!! Maturata in botti con le ciliegie... 4 grammi di ciliegie al litro... un perfetto lambic equilibrato dalle Ciliegie.. ottima con dolci con crema pasticcera e frutta... anche con gli gnocchi di susini

Bottle. I donít know what to think about this beer. Really love sour beer, like Rodenbach Grand Cru, really love kriek beer. But this one wasnít what I expected : think of it as a sour bier, but with unsweetened kriek. I think I love it (even though I love both style separately)

DenverLogan (1100) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2016
From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours a murky cherry red with pink-red head and minimum lace. Aroma of fermented dark cherry juice. Big carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of a tart cherry soda with slight alcohol, grains and old hops. Overall rich and tart but not mouth puckering or as difficult to enjoy as many sours. Iíll admit...I used to represent this brewery in California and have seen the label and perhaps the taste change over time, but as a cherry lambic this stands tall as drinkable alone or with food, fresh or aged. Sheís a beauty!
