Alesmith (11) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 9, 2016
A stunning pour, 2015 vintage enjoyed with traPissed, on the nose was pure pussy juice & cherry lip balm, moist but naturally juicy aftertaste, the perfect consistency, it was my conclusion that this was the perfect time of the month to pop the cork. This was pussy juice in a bottle....

ThirstyBird (2683) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Pours a near clear ruby red with a pink head. The smell is intense kriek nose which is what one would expect and some cinnamon. The taste is a bit of Jolly Rancher cherry candy without the sweetness. Big rich oriel flavor with some herbal freshness ending dry and tart. Light in body with smooth carbonation.

FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2016
750ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 (Pothouse, Tallinn)
The aromas all cherry, in particular in the clearer glass. Tons of carbonation spoils the palate. Pretty middle-of-the-road quality kriek, dominated by cherry flesh and skins, quite delicious, and a pleasant lambic bite, but definitely overpriced. Even Lou Pepe used to be less (and Scheerbeekse was half this price a decade ago).

skullgeorge (83) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece. Pours red, Rubin with a pink head. Aromas of cherries and tart. Gently sour, cherries, red berries, and a bit of dust when it gets warm. Perfect dry aftertaste with fruity cherry flavour that lasts. Perfect

Marduk (6773) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 750ml bottle (Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016, thanks FatPhil). Clear red color. Tiny to almost no size pink head. Cherries, gingerbread, clove, spicy in aroma. Cherries, fruity, icy in taste. Feels watery. Clove, cherries and fruity in aftertaste. Some cinnamon bark too. Fizzy carbonation. Very drinkable brew.

Merci Luc pour le partage de cette bire que je souhaitais dguster depuis un bon moment dj. Une kriek trs clean,tant dans sa prsentation que dans ce quelle offre au nez quau palais. Un funk digne de Drie Fonteinen ni trop sec, ni trop poussireux, ni trop minral. Le funk est en fait aussi subtil que complexe et prsente de jolies notes boises qui saccordent parfaitement aux cerises employes. Ces dernires apportent une aromatique de grande qualit sans jamais alourdir la bire par un excs de corps. Gazification abondante sur un ensemble trs bien balanc et propre. Avec un tel label, ce nest pas du tout le genre de produit auquel je mattendais, et tant mieux. Un produit vraiment bien fait.
