The beer was a pleasant surprise. The cherry body was fantastic and an instant reminder of my mom’s cherry pies. Only fault I could think of is that I only have one small bottle.

Fles bij Van Erp uit Groningen. Ruikt zuur en smaakt zuur. Iets te zuur naar mijn smaak. Veel carbonatie. Wel een mooie kleur.

Bursted out of the bottle, not a good thing and the fizziness stayed in the beer itself. But, apart from that it’s a very good sour ale, the cherry is there but not overwhelming like a real kriek. Dry finish, almost meaty. Very nice. Bottle from Van Erp Groningen.

Love this beer great balance between a flemish red and a kriek. Great entry beer for a newcomer to the sour world. Nice and mild acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

apickles (105) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle in ’t Brugs Beertje, Bruges. Lovely rosy colour with quite a fluffy head. Fruity sour nose. Amazingly sour cherry flavour with a wheaty aftertaste.

gegwilson (917) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle in ’t Brugs Beertje, Bruges. Cloudy red colour with a frothy white head. Very sour balsamic vinegar smell. Taste is extremely sour and full of unripe cherry notes.

Mtbiker54 (26) - Nancy, FRANCE - NOV 27, 2013
Une couleurs ruby hallucinante. Une mousse rosée. Des arômes de kitsch et d’amande qui doit venir du noyau. Des notes boisées. Des notes acidulées très fines. Une bière très surprenantes.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Ruddy red beer that delivers all the classic kriek characteristics, with a distinctly sour twist. My wife and I are huge Duchess fans, and this boils down to the wonderful Duchess with a bountiful and extremely well interlaced cherry character. Nice wild beer but mellow enough for anyone to enjoy! (#5325, 10/2013)
