jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle, 2010 vintage, 08/31/2012. Red pour, deep ruby highlights, thin head burns away quickly. Rich cherry aroma with nice tartness, barnyard and musty oak. Taste sharp with tart cherry, minerals, earthy barnyard. Smooth, slick body. Very nice, though perhaps I prefer Lou Pepe Kriek to this one.

pastymc (43) - Niscemi, ITALY - FEB 1, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 Bottiglia da 75 cl presso 3 Fonteinen di Lot (lambik o?droom). Schiuma ros volatile e poco persistente, colore rosso fragolino. Al naso stalla, calzini sporchi ma coadiuvati dallodore di ciliegie selvatiche che avvolge. Al gusto unesplosione acida di frutta con un finale acido e astringente ma non acetico. Carbonatazione molto vivace, da stile. Direi perfetta nel suo stile in tutte le sfaccettature.

koleminer20 (3266) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickeys on December 01. 750 mL bottle, 2005 vintage. The pour is a dirty reddish color with a thicker pink head and a couple spots of lace as it falls to a film. This is an interesting thing. There is a plastic VOC thing happening on the nose. There is a light rubber band thing going on that Im not crazy about. There is a good amount of cherry and a nice tartness, but its just not as crisp and clean as I was hoping it would be. The flavor is much of the same. The cherry is a little dry and the VOCs and rubber band are still prevalent. The mouth feel is thicker and syrupy with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and tart cough syrup thing happening that just doesnt do it for me. Maybe this needs to be a little fresher.

A delicious kriek from 2011. Round in the taste with medium-high sourness. Dark red liquid with an exceptionel white head. Average carbonation and full body with long lasting taste of cherries. Fantastic experiance.
