KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 9, 2011
I’d have to agree, the taste and the nose is endearing - the ABV makes this hazardous. Great colour, looks like a frothy fruit juice with a fair to middling head, excellent nose, very fruity, very cherry, taste is full bodied, very sour and fruity, acidic and dry.

FinnIckler (571) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2017
2010 vintage. Pours cloudy red. Nose is not that crazy intense cherry, wood. Palate is sour cherry. Delicious cherry sweetness, grapes, blackberry. Hasn’t aged perfectly.

Cloudy dark orange/red. Aroma is beatiful sweet cherry and biscotti. Taste is very sour cherries with lime juice. Nice and complex.

Moravius (1332) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2017
Flasche („Oude Kriek van Schaerbeekse krieken 35 %", Alk. 5 %, 75 cl, abgefüllt 2008 und etliche Jahre daheim gelagert). - Rubinrot, klar, rosafarbener Schaum. - In der Nase die typisch kellermuffigen Geuze-Aromen, nur zarte Sauerkirsche und ein ganz leichter Hauch von Fäkalien. - Im Antrunk dominiert intensiv zitronige Säure mit bitterer Grapefruitschale und holziger Herbe; Sauerkirsche kommt nur am Rande vor. Mild rezent, sehr trocken. Im Abgang mild holzig herb. - Sehr intensiver Geuze-Charakter, weniger Kriek als erwartet. Zweifellos ein großartiges Bier, aber etwas zu heftig.

TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Label shows 05-04-2004. Pours a hazy ruby with a short fizzy tan head. Aroma is sour fruit, tart cherry, cherry candy and funky notes. Taste is tart fruit, sour cherry, funky yeast and earthy notes. Body is medium with a moderate fizzy carbonation and and dry finish. Ends with more funky yeast tart fruit, sour cherry, yogurt and earthy notes. Damn delicious!

Bottle at 3 Fonteinen. Shared with the wife. Cheers! Pours a deep red, small pink head. Loads of sentiment. Aromas of cherry skins, deep horse blanket funk, light almond, light hay. Taste is loaded with cherry skins, jam, almond. Wet oak. Very soft mouth feel, very light acidity. Incredibly balanced and smooth. Could drink this all day!!
