beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
Sampled at le Mondial de la bičre 2005. Pours a clear dark red color with a thin offwhite head. Sweet aroma of cherries. Sweet and sour flavor of cherries. Light to medium body, soft carbonation.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 A Mes rate: Re rate following Croydon Belgian Festival. I must have had a bad bottle of this as my second attempt was much much better than my first. Also since then I have really enjoyed it every time. Very very similar to the Vichtenaar just with more fruit. Wonderful body, great finish. Maybe it has just grown on me... . (I better rate this one quick before it gets drained! Not too good to be honest. A strange chocolate hint to the aroma and the flavour. For me it doesnt really work that well. Goes down quick and easy though! Damn these 25cl bottles!)

Sammy (9442) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
Musty and leather smell. Very cherry, light head. Opaque red. Sugar and vinegar acidic, not finishable, doesn’t work altogether, the taste the fizzy carbonation. Too dry too thin,

Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
(bottle 25 cl) In my version only 5,8% ABV. A different, stronger, more dry and less sweet Kriek. More beer, less fruit. A refreshing and quenching fruit-beer based on Sour Ale rather than sweetened lambic. If you miss Rodenbach Alexander, this is a decent substitute. 220896

Geiserich (3676) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottled:
Sourly aroma, medium strong cherry note. Brillant red color. Flavor is light sourly with remarkable cherry flavor, that isn’t dominant. End is astringent with light notes of bitter almonds. Nice, but a hint to sweet.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2005
Light sour cherry aroma. Hazy red in colour with a small pink head. Sweet cherry start with a sour and slightly woody finish. Refreshing cherry beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2005
Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours dark ruby color with only ring of bubbles. Sour vinegar and tart cherry aroma and flavor. Leaves long aftertaste, but dry at the smae time if that makes any sense.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 20, 2005
33 cl bottle. Red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is cherry all right with some brett detected also. Taste is more cherry soda than a Flemish Sour. Too many good beers in this category for this to be close to those.

Crockett (1031) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Pours clear read with a little foamy pink head. Berries and cherry. Lemon cherry popsicle. Cherry cough drops and cinnamon in the finish. Fairly sour, not particularly sweet. Decent.
