MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 A Mes rate: As with the Kriekenlambik, from a 75cl bottle at the De Heeren Van Liedekerke 15 year celebration Garden Party and poured by Armand himself.
As it stands at the moment, the best I have tried. Straight away the nose tells you these are special cherries. Slight hint of apple and a little cinnamon too. Incredible almost maroon colour with a very pink head that leaves generous lace. The flavour is utterly sublime. Even Sim liked it and lambics are definitely not her thing. Obviously it is pretty much all tart and dry cherries but the cinnamon is again quite noticable. As soon as you swallow some vanilla appears and then vanishes just as quickly leaving the dry cherries to finish. Just as you think that its done a wonderful strawberry note appears out of nowhere. Without doubt the most complex journey of a finsh I have experienced and one of the main things that makes this the absolute winner that it is. So good it is infact I had to rate my second glass as I simply could not talk during my first. Never has my first sip of a beer stopped me in my tracks like this. I was just sat there staring into space while Sim laughed at me. As close to perfection as I have ever had.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2006
(ABV 5%). Dark red colored, small white head. Cherries and sourness are obvious in aroma, sweetness and some fruits can be found also. Medium bodied. Flavor is dry with cherries and sourness, aftertaste lasts long with sour touch of bubble gum. Crispy palated, at least when having this cold.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Gorgeous beginning stage of meringue head , tinged almost calamine pink. True ruby hue underneath. Sugary almond extract and lots of premium balsamic vinegar in the aroma. Very tart and dry at first -- initially sucked all the moisture out of my mouth. Somewhat like chewing on a leaf. Suddenly, there was a rush of salive from nowhere and a ton of cranberry, crabapple and raspberry flavors emerged. Moss, oak, maybe some mold in the finish. Very unique and very lactic. Thanks so much Kevin!

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 3, 2006
750ml bottle from De Heeren van Liedekercke. Poured a deep red with a medium sized pink head. Big aroma of cherries of course with a bit of sourness. Flavor is just as one would expect. Cherries and sour acidic funk. Good beer.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2006
(Bottled, 0.75l, 04/2004) Very hazy ruby red color with a large, foamy head (burst right out of the bottle). Tart, quite natural cherry aroma. Very nicely balanced, very dry and tart, quite natural cherry flavor with moderate acidity. Medium-bodied, very dry palate with slightly foamy carbonation. A very pleasant, although quite sour and dry kriek.

Kevin (2195) - Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2006
bottle from xray. muddy red body with a light red ring of a head. sour and sweaty nose with sulphur in all the right places. this makes my jaws clinch & eyes water. intriguing sour fruit and bubblegum. cherry twinge inducing funked sour with acidic seedless grapes, a good vinegar note too. vanilla appears through this with a wheatyness. "i could live on sour beers, couldnt you?"- TAR. "yep"- Kevin. a microflora masterpiece. som much going going on that blows me away and i cant pin down except to say this is good shit. vanilla, paper, ginger, vinegar and nuts are the finish with the sour cherries.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Pours ruby red with a thin pinkish head. Smells of barnyard, cherries, raspberries, some oak, sweet sugar. Tastes of tarte cherries, wood, sugar, some breadiness. Strange but good.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 (Bottle at 3 fonteinen, Beersel) Pours blood red with orange hints. The head is firm and light pink. Aroma is sour, salty with acid notes. Deep cherry tones. Wood, rubber tyre, stable and some chlorine are also present. The the flavour is sour, a bit grapy. Good, lively carbonation. Acid and minerals. Fresh broken wood. Dryish and lovely. Second try: (Bottle) pours deep blood red with a light pink head. The aroma is ripe cherries juice, barnyard/horse blanket brett, mouldy basement and citrus peels. Undertones of cinnamon, almond and vanilla. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and medium acidic with tones of ripe cherries, funky brett, citrus, cinnamon almond and mould.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2006
03-2005 bottle. Pours a brilliant, glistening ruby that is as beautiful as a liquid could be. Aroma is funky, strong, and unrestrained, with a subtle hint of cherries, with white chocolate, fresh dough, and sour apple coming through. A bit harsh on the palate -- my only real criticism of the beer -- though still luscious and rich in the mouth. The cherry comes through a lot more here, though isnt quite as prevalent as I hoped. Its mostly been bittered and dried out, and doesnt have the gentle, subtle touch of sweetness (from the cherries) that Lou Pepe Kriek had. Still, a wonderful beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Bottled in March 2005. Poured a deeper red capped by a short pink head. The aroma was chock full of wild, half-dried cherries, dusty barnyard funk, and well-rounded oak accents. The flavor shined with un-sweetened cherry tartness, funky must, and bunches of oak. Tart on the palate, but not overbearing... sour cherry highlights... dry refreshing finish. This was a most excellent brew!
