Odeur forte de vinaigre..Belle couleur mais pas de mousse. Goût fort acide, et goût de vinaigre bien prononcé. Bière originale.

12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
25cl. bottle from a local beer retailer. It pours a clear deep dark red liquid with a small-medium beige spongy head that lasts nicely and leaves some lacing. The aroma (light at first) is mostly fruity (berries), with hints of wood, wine and some wheat. Some brown sugar can also be sensed. A good malty base. It tastes likewise but intenser, reminding a fruit lambic beer with its fruity and candy sugar notes. It is medium sweet and sour; nicely balanced. In the mouth it feels lively carbonated, lambic-style, with a medium body and a long dry and sour finish with an aftertaste of berries and wood, and a touch of bitterness. Nice and original presentation (making it quite clear it is an aged beer) for a very good brew.

Unusual dark red color, frothly tan head, no visible carbonation. Definite cherry aroma overpowers any other typical beer smells like malt or hops. Smells like a fruit punch or cranberry cocktail. A bubbly light palate. A definite Kriek beer packed with berry - like cherry . Just like the aroma, the fruit dominates all other things one expects from a beer. No hearty malt, no dry hops. Perhaps good for those who dont enjoy beer - the former Zima crowd and new malt vodka types. Its tart and different, but if your looking for a traditional beer, stay away.

Acheté à la SAQ, avec une date d’expiration du 27 février 2010. Dégusté dans un verre trappiste de chimay. D’une couleur brun rouge orangé ayant une belle mousse et une bonne carbonation. Senteur de bois, de compote de pomme sûrette, de caramel, de fûmé avec une touche de vanille. Goût de rhubarbe, de pomme grenade, de canneberge, de boisé, de caramel avec un léger goût de cerise avec un peu d’amertume. Une sensation moelleuse, crémeuse avec une longue finition sec et collante.Je l’adore et je vie à chaque fois un moment de plénitude.

Dark brown reddish pour into a sambuca snifter with a half inch head. The aroma is sour, apple cider, and brown sugar. The taste is fruity and sour. The cherry, citrus, raspberry and brown sugar flavors melt perfectly with the 6.2% alcohol. This is the best flemish sour ale that I have had thus far. Kick ass brew.

bastarda (258) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
shared by bartlebier 10/14, revisited with Konfuzzi, as a long tasting’s precautionary antidote to everything consumed so far - or so it seems, with that soothing aromas of warm, oaky acidity with some honey edges and that benevolent mild, deep, warm tartness throughout.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 25 cl bottle, pours ruby with a minor head, aroma of slightly tart cherry and wood, taste is pretty much the same, it is has a pretty good balance between sour and sweet, ok finish.

morri (258) - NORWAY - MAY 3, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head which vanishes almost immediately. Dark red body. Aroma of vinegar and apple cider. Quite sour, and also sweet at the same time. Dry down the throat, which suits the style well.

juanenka (258) - valladolid, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2013
Botella. Presencia rojiza con corona blanca poco persistente. Aroma ácido con notas a madera. En boca la acidez es más moderada que el olfato con un toque de cuadra como las gueuze, claras notas de barrica. Muy bebible
