matthewjk (958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. Itís a fun journey, but when itís all said and done the flavors donít meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like Iím going against the grain on this one.

A lovely kriek, with plentiful bitter almond flavours (cherry stones!), and some sweet red fruit coming in behind

simont1 (345) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2015
Medium plus acidity, with a nice basement aroma and irony red wine like almond taste, not a lot of straight cherries, but more funk, barnyard and almost raisin. Quite deep and full taste.

UXO (603) - CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours clear ruby red with one finger of frothy pink head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, minimal lacing. (4/5) Nose is dry funk, light vinegar, sour cherries, some mineral and woody oak. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter, moderate tart. (8/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (4/5) A really nice kriek - lots of pleasant fruit, but not to the extent that it overwhelms the underlying lambic character. Tart but not aggressively so, with a touch of dry brett funk. I like this. (16/20)

Sample @ BBF 15. Pours a bright deep purple beer with a small pinkish head on top. Aroma is barnyard, leather funk, cherries, oak. Flavor is medium tart, loads of fruits and Brett touches in there. Aftertaste is not there, verbinding is pretty high. A decent beer.

seynie (215) - Tienen, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2015
Ruby red with a pink head. Not as sour as most "Oude Kriek" beers, a little bit more balanced with some dryness towards the end. Good mix of acidity, cherries and a dry sweetness.
