Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle shared with Nuffield. Moderately acidic tartness, light geuze sourness, light cherry. Mildly thin, but no so much so that it loses its lambic characteristics. Good blend of horse, barn, cherry acids, and wheat. Slight tannins from the oak. Good lingering flavors that blend together on the finish. Very well crafted.

Thanks to Tim for this. Nose has cherries, bretty oak, strawberries, lemon candy, yeast. Pinkish red body, off pink head. Cherry up front with oak, funky wheat, lemon, sour citrus candy. Funky slightly cherry soda finish.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Bottled March 1, 2005. Dark cherry red. Small, bubbly, light pink head. Nose is sour cherries, sour yeast, light sweetness, must. Simple but very nice. First taste is sweet cherry juice, that yields quickly to tartness. The sourness is not overpowering, cherries are the focus of the flavor. Sour flavor builds as it warms. Finish and aftertaste are dry and sour. Juice like body, a bit syrupy before the finish, Id like more carbonation. Excellent kriek.

Sampled at the Milwaukee YEHa!05 courtesy of DenverLogan: Bright transparent ruby pour has a thin, lightly pink head. Tart sour cherry aroma has some funky barnyard and cheesy complexity. Body starts with a fresh, tart cherry and cranberry flavor with a nice cheesy yeasty presence and dry puckering finish. Not overly acidic, rather very drinkable and has great flavor. Big thanks to Logan for sharing and to slob for sending me a bottle!

heemer77 (5327) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 Thanks for sharing, Kevin. Poured with a dark red body that had a pink head. The aroma is tart with and dry with vinegar, hay and barnyard. Any fruits are very subtle. The taste is tart with lemons and some hay. There is also some cherries and a little rich leather in the finish. A well made and accessible lambic.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Wildly red with a cute little pink head. This is even redder than Lindemans Kriek. Cherry pit aroma. Mellow, not overly bretty or acidic aroma. Sour aroma, but not aggressively so. This is extremely drinkable. Medium tart cherry pit flavor. Nowhere near the acid burn of cantillon. Great balance of fruit flavor, but in no way sweet, actually rather dry, but still fruit forward, yet without an overly agressive acid character. Dare I say subtle?

Bottling date March 1st, 2005. Early sunday morning treat for myself. Deep murky red/plum in color, with film that fades to only a ring. Huge sour/tart cherry kick when the bottle is first cracked. As it warms a big musty farmhouse character takes over. strange but the aroma reminds me of an old gym we used to ball in, very stale sweaty and musty. Flavor is all tart cherry up front, fades to a real dry sourness through the middle. Finishes very musty/farmhouse funk quality to it. Nice mouthfeel, perfest carbonation, just the right amount of liveliness. This is my third bottle in the last couple months and seems like the sour/tart cherries are already fading out. Just MO.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Bottle. Sour cherry and the typical dry, musty lambic aroma. Dark red color wtih small film of a head. Initial cherry flavor with a crescendo of tartness. Finishes with the typical lambic musty and dry flavor. Dryness lasts long after swallowing. Sourness is well balanced - just enough without becoming too powerful. How I found this in the middle of Indiana Amish country Ill never know.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Logan! Red-brown, slightly hazy body that leaves dusty legs. Sweet cherry aroma with raspberries and a bit of brown sugar. Great cherry flavor - natural, fresh fruit plus brett and lemon skin. A great kriek that has good complexity.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2006 750 ml bottle (2005 vintage) from Blue Max in Burnsville, MN, enjoyed all by my lonesome on New Years Eve 2005, my last new beer/rating of the year. Worth the heavy expectations? Well...Hazy deep red, the color of fresh uncongealed blood, with a surprisingly stable, vigorous pint head....deep sour barnyard at first, but ripe sweet cherries burst through like the sun through a dark fog and bringing with them hints of almond, green pepper and anise....as it warms, much more sweetness shows up and touches of sweet yellow apple appear.....on the palate, the licorice is up forward, the cherries are present but muted, more cherry skins than fruit, marzipan and light sourdough....the body is amazingly soft yet sharply, fully carbonated throughout, like a velvet glove cast in iron (apolgoies to Dan Clowes)....a stunning creation, simple and quaffable enough to drink every day were that possible, yet complex enough to fascinate every time. Goodbye 2005, hello 2006.
