Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a dark purple, clear beer with a small pinkish head on top. Aroma of red fruits, cherries, strawberries. Flavor is medim sour, very fresh and fruity. Dry mouthfeel, medium dry finish. Very decent.

boFNjackson (4156) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle... Poured dark, ruby red with a thin, off-pink head. Sour cherry pie, dry, tart, quite sour with nice candied cherry, and black cherry sweetness. Ripe cherry flavors balance out the acidity quite nicely.

mcberko (6873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark pinkish mahogany with a small pink-beige head. Nose is quite funky, with barnyard notes, and loads of unsweetened cherry. Flavour is along the same lines, with barnyard funk, loads of cherries, and a touch of cherries. Medium complexity, with excellent balance and quite a lingering funk. Excellent lambic.

obguthr (4003) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Sweet cherry nose, some cobweb. Ruby red, thick pink head. Very sour cherry, but only at first. Jolly rancher cherry at midpalate. Some phenols. Tangy overall. Delicious.

mR_fr0g (3630) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle shared at Chriso’s mid-week lasting 03/07/14. Rich reddy pink coloured pour with a halo of loose pink head. Aroma is nice fresh cherry, tart, bakewell tart, some sweetness in the aroma as well. Flavour is musty earthy, cherry, fresh tart cherry. Touch of plastic as well. Palate is sharp, tart, crisp tart finish. Really solid.

ClubGonzo (4162) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a slightly hazy deep cherry red body with a small pink-hued white head. Aroma is sweet cherries, almonds, mild horseblanket, marzipan and hints of citrus and white sugar. Taste is tart cherries, lemon, horse blanket, mild almond nutty tones and hints of red fruits and sour lactic hints. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A kriek that turns out surprisingly sour and fresh compared to the relatively sweet-tuned impression from the aroma up front. Very drinkable, I like it.

2013/7/10 Very dark blood red 1 finger pink head. Faded fast. Smells fantastic. Really cherry forward. Light and mildly tart. Taste isn’t bad. It’s more on the sweet side. Tart is there and certainly using other processes but the mouthfeel is nice and residual sugars stick around.
