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.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Pours all red with big pink head. Aroma is really moldy, earthy, tart wheat, marzipan, intense, dry cherries, stone fruit, mos, light raspberries. Really funky. Taste is more mellow, quite fruity, cherries, raspberries, candy, mold, funk, light cheese, barnyard. Earthy dry finish, dominated by esteres, candy and marzipan.

2012 bottle of Oud Beersel Kriek - made for export I guess. Beautiful dark brownish red with lively fluffy bright white head. Sweet aroma of cherries and cherry pits. Taste dry and earthy, whole-mouth tart (as opposed to sharp prickly tartness). I could drink this all day.

Ottima kriek, non do il massimo perché ce ne sono di migliori ma ha un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.

mateuszk (1355) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours red with no head. Aroma of tart cherries, almond, barnyard. In taste solid sourness with a hint of sweetness on start, with almond and horse blanket notes. Light body, high carbonation, dry tart finish. Great kriek.

Bottle on 3.19.14. Smell is straight cherry warhead. Flavor is worse - I’m getting cherry vinegar. Pour is a pretty red with minimal head. I won’t be seeking this out.

Bottle @ ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is loaded from cherries and lemon. A woody undertone. Taste is sour and up front lemon juice and sour apples. There’s cherries here alright, but not as much as in the aroma. Some leather, earth and wood. Dry and semi-tart. Excellent stuff!
