Aroma: vinegar, cherries, vanilla Appearance: Ruby red, minimal head Taste: tart cherry flavor, almost no malt flavor breaks through the acidity. no bitterness to speak of Palate: thin, highly carbonated, dry finish Overall: didn’t perceive as much of the oakiness as i expected still a very good kriek.

freretoc (685) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 1, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 25cl, couleur rouge, mousse moyenne, grosse effervescence, une bière avec une acidité mal équilibrée, limite citronnée qui ne fait pas équilibre avec la cerise, ça pique fort et c’est pas agréable.

Renobob (634) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 31, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Un peu déséquilibrée à mon, trop acide, peu de corps. Arômes et saveur de cerise. L’ensemble était peu agréable à boire.

gripweed57 (679) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bright reddish amber color. Pink head disappeared quickly. Aroma is sweet cherry and funky disco barnyard. Hints at barbecue sauce and furniture polish. Flavor is tart cherries and more barbecue sauce. There is some oak that emerges. Overall, this is a tart sweet lambic that gets it done.

On tap at Ørsted Ølbar, july 26th 2014. Ruby body with a thin pink head. Looking cool! Fruity aroma with tart cherries, lime sweet syrup and caramel malt. Taste is strong cherries and wood, with a heavy thick sweetness cutting through, thick bodied, sugar sweet finish, like red berry jam. It’s ok but way too sweet in my opinion.

ik vond dit kriekenbier net iets te zuur voor mij, voor mij mag het iets zoeter zijn.

Lukasmh (113) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Tap. Pours clear ruby red, dense one finger bit colored. Aroma is slightly sour, wood, sweet cherries. Taste is first medium sweet, cherries, wood, Finish comes sour tart and lasting. Annoying bi-taste of something?

gyllenbock (4622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. (thanks SirLimpsalot) Clear ruby red with a pink head. Cherries, light funk and wood. Not that sour. Easy to drink and nicely refreshing in the hot summer evening.

@Basunen: lite diskret doft. Trevlig fruktig smak, tydlig körsbär, lätt syrlig. Perfekt i värmen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
