Garrold (7349) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2019 Bottle. 2014 cork. 2012 sticker. Ranzani 13, Bologna. Nose has cherry yoghurt. Cherry stone. Cherry juice. Oak. Vanilla pod. New leather. Light funk. Depth of fruit is remarkable. Taste is tart, sharp and super dry. Light and super crisp on the palate. Fairly high acidity. Foamy carbonation. Lots of cherry tartness to finish. Smells fantastic, but the level of tartness is too much for me.

Cristobal37 (1857) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 21, 2018
Bottle at brewery 2015 vintage. Pours darker red than simple Cantillon kriek, some pink head. Aroma is really fruity as if it were fresh squeezed sour cherry juice. Taste is amazingly fresh and tart fresh sour cherries with that Cantillon guezue lemon juice and funk behind it. No foubt the best kriek I've ever had.

Saeglopur (3230) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 25, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2018 Draught at BXL Beer Fest. According to Cantillons FB page: "2018 cherry harvest, Lambic 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. Beer taken from the maceration tank exclusively for BXL Beer Fest."
Dark ruby body, with a tiny, pink head.
Lovely aroma with loads of distinct, sweet, chewy cherries, slight wood.
Tastes also great, similar, a bit more wooden.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a flat carbonation.
Finishes perfect, smooth, dry, wooden, with loads of elegant, sweet cherries.

Amazing!! Perfectly balanced and smooth to drink, with propably the most lovely cherries I've had in any beer. Almost a nectar like sweet juiciness, while so balanced at the same time, with just enough sourness and dryness. Propably my favourite Kriek ever!

Score: 9 / 4 / 9 / 5 / 18
