Bottle at Novare Res.
Pours a dark cherry reddish color. Head just while pouring and directly after. Aroma is a wonderful blend of funky sour cherries. The flavor is really nice, sour bite of cherrys with an incredible dry finish. Slight acidity in the finish. I liked this Kriek a lot...well made. angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Thanks BMan1113vr for this one. Pours a dark red/purple with a pleasantly cloudy appearance. Smells of sour cherries and dark wine, with a hint of barn. Tastes nicely tart up front, followed by the sweetness of dark cherries. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle marked 12 Dec 2007. Pours with a small, pink head that settles over a deep, hazy maroon body. Aroma of funk, port wine, merlot grapes, horse, leather, cherries, pineapple, oak, vanilla and barnyard. Taste is very tart up front followed by dark cherries, wine, dark fruits, leather over the approx. 45 second duration. Finishes with a light vinegar and olive note. Slightly puckering mouthfeel. Dry, light carbonation. bp (922) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle: pours dark red with just a thin ring of white head, plenty of little bubbles from the carbonation, sour aroma of cherries, taste is tart, cherry, some wood or earthy flavor as well, thin mouthfeel. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2009
bottle, pours dark raspberry with a small pink head. Aromas of cherry and sour funk. Very tart with a dry cherry in the finish. Pretty good for me not liking sours.

3,75 cl bottle, bottled 14DEC07. Nice head, though disappearing quickly. Rather limited aroma. Great cherry finish on the tip of the tongue. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2009
375ml bottle bottled 12/14/2007, costly at $13. Very nice smell upon opening the bottle, cherry kool-aid and juice mixed. Nice pink color with a head that quickly evanesced. The taste puckers my jaws but doesn’t quite leave a sour taste on my tongue. Acidic, not much funk. I really enjoy the 3F gueuze so I’ll continue collecting that but for my money I’d rather have an oud beersel kriek as it seems to have more funk to it.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 375cl Bottle (14-12-2007), bought at the brewery shop.
Smell of cherries, a nice yeast tone and some balsamic vinegar.
Has a beautiul, deep red colour. Minimal head when pouring which disappears quickly.
Delicate cherry flavour with slight sour tones. Loaded with fruit and rather sweet, but not the syruppy sweetness of more commercial kriek beers.
Definately a great beer. KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
12.7 oz. bottle. 14 Dec 2007 botting date. Dark red color with a thin, bubbly white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of tart cherries and some wood notes. Nice sour flavor with a ton of cherry. A bit of vinegar as well. Finish is a dry, barnyard funk. jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 4, 2009
750 ml, nov 06 bottle w/ Simon. No pfttt on opening, strange. Fairly still. Nice funky nose - although mild. Nice cherry, musty combo. Solid kriek but was hoping for a bit more bite.
