Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. It’s a fun journey, but when it’s all said and done the flavors don’t meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like I’m going against the grain on this one.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/18/2032. Cork nearly popped itself off, but I caught it with the cage. Pours hazy dark ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and rocky pink head with insane retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Beautiful. Aromas of big sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, musty wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, musty wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Fair amount of fruity/earthy tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding complexity and balance of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel flavors; with an awesome sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an oudstanding kriek lambic style. All around awesome complexity and balance of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the modest acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

Vighals (1100) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Klar rød med lavt rosa skum. Overraskende lite lukt av denne krieken. Noe bærlukt, men mer sur enn søt lukt. Syrlig, sur smak. Kort tørr ettersmak

Dark red with small pink cap. Sour cherry taste with soame sweetness on the first half of tongue, a bit watery.

Marko (3918) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 25, 2014
Huge thanks to Mario from Dva Tona. Red body, pinkish long lasting thick head. Very funky cherry aroma, nothing more, nothing less, again heavily funky taste, with very, very pleasant cherry notes, slightly salty. Not extremely complex but damn lovely.

At Kulminator with Kimberly and Taylor. Pours lighter red rosé with why me head. Aroma is very low acidity, nice jucy cherries, very nice classic Lambic funk. This is a fantastic Lambic.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Ariel. Hazy red with a small pink head. Aroma of cherries, sour apples and yeast. Sweet-sour with tons of cherries. Medium-bodied, very pleasant to drink. Very good.

rbrazell (1634) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Beet juice colored pour with a big frothy pink head. Cheesy, oaky, funky, earthy aroma, acidic citrus, brandied plums and bright cherry notes. Funky, cheesy yeast up front with pucker tart, citrus acid mid palate with juicy ripe cherries coming in through the back end. Bright, vibrate and young. Very solid, readily available Kriek.

poech73 (179) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
Kriek très portée sur le fruit brasser comme un vin tellement le maltage disparaît sous les arômes de fruit. Le nez est très fruité et floral : cerise, cerise amère, acidité pas d’amertume, levure. En bouche, la gorgée donne l’impression de manger du fruit. Le maltage fait ressortir fort le coté fromenté. La fin est surette avec un arrière goût boisé qui assèche la langue sur un houblonnage minéral très légèrement astringent. Abords très vineux pour cette kriek à boire et à reboire!
