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.

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 (880) - 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 (2399) - 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.

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.

pintbypint (2541) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
750ml green bottle with cork and cage. Hazy pour, holds a small pinkish head on a red body. Nose has sharp cherries, wet wood. Taste is oaky, sharp sour cherries, vinegar. Very woody finish, dry. Decent carbonation. Overall, a good kriek.

JorgeLee (1137) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Bright pink colour with a strongly pink-tinged head. Looks splendid. A very refreshing kriek. Not the strongest cherry flavours, there somewhere in the middle, but more sourness. Medium level of austerity and dryness (for a lambic!) All in pretty good stuff.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. korten smäller av och skummet kommer hack i häl. I glaset efter tre minuters långsm upphällning är den riktigt snygg med sitt stora ljust cerisa skum mot den mörkrosa vätskan. Fin kärv syrlig doft med mycket körsbär. Smaken är relativt torr även om en del sötma finns där, medelstor syrlighet och lite körsbärsskal och omognna körsbärs sträva lite kärva syrlighet, påtaglig kärnbeska. En riktigt bra kriek.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
0.375l corked bottle. This is how a Kriek should look. An amazing pink purple big fluffy head quickly rises on top of a blood red deep light cloudy body. As good as they can look IMO. A nice fruity cherry nose, lots of small bretty and acidic clues on the one on how this is going too taste. Sipping on the foam I get some childhood memories of sour red currant juice. Lovely flavorful with a dry grassy fruitiness, loaded with sour tart cherries and a little bit of vanilla. It has a light oily mouthfeel and a above average almost high carbonation level. Super refreshing, fantastic with food. It’s not all sour, there is also a nice sweetness balancing this one. A little bit of hay in the finish and my lips lingers with her the taste of fresh lime. Not regretting buying a couple of bottles of this one. 26.10.2013

375 mL bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer. Many thanks! To Chimay goblet, it pours a reddish light pink with a pinkish-ringed head 1 finger in length. Aromas of crushed aspirin, frozen raspberry, blueberries, and mold. Tastes the same with the addition of wet grass, sweat, and Bible paper. Fun, fun, fun! Colorful, fruity, and invigorating. I like.
