bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle from bierkompass.de. Reddish brown color. Cherry juice and a hint of oak in the aroma. Sourish vinous flavor with vanilla, cherry juice, marzipan. Low on carbon. Very pleasant, tastes a bit like a very old sweetened kriek lambic.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2011
(750ml bottle, BB Feb 2015) Pours a murky dirty blood red body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of cherry, yogurt, vinous, barnyard, red currants, wet leather, and wood. Flavor of cherry, Bourgogne tannins, earth, and lacto with a dry wood finish. Excellent.

thewolf (12602) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Alvinne Beershop.
Pours an absolutely lovely, clear, deep ruby red. Small, rather fizzy, off-white pink head. Stays as a thin rim ’round the edges. Nice sweet fruity aroma, lots of oak, some mild red wine tannins, vanilla. High carbonation, light watery palate. Flavour is mildly dry, somewhat dull at first, then good tartness, fine oaky presence. There are grapes, little tannins, some good cherries. Light marzipan, some vanilla. Quite decent actually, compared to how much sweetness there is in the original version. Nice.

madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2010
Draught. Red coloured. Unclear. Dense reddish head. Berries, sweetness, light citrus and some wood/barral. Flaovur as well full of berries and dry fruits. Citric and sourish with a light marzipany touch. Medium bodied. Grapy and sourish end. Dont think the bourgogne barral does a lot for the beer.

Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2010
Had this at Pre ZBF 5th March 2010 Pours wonderful red colour with good clarity. This is quite a lovely beer in terms of aroma (sweeter than expected) though sour cherries are leaping up the nostrils. In the mouth this is sour, woody and with clear wine enhanced characteristics, dry at the end, little puckering in the mouth, good tangy stuff. A8 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.7

sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2011
Bouteille 75cl, 63/250, lot 391, bb fev 2015. Couleur rougeâtre/rubis, mousse beige. Arôme a de profondes notes de cerises tout en gardant cet aspect de fût de Bourgogne. L’aigreur des cerises se ressent ainsi que le boisé qui st évoqué par le chêne. En bouche, une bière facile à boire de 5.5% avec une couche de cerises acidulées qui n’est pas trop désagréable au palais, une fine carbonation qui se mélange au bois et un du Bourgogne qui reste bien en retrait tout en laissant une fin de touche de vignoble. Mon seul regret pour cette bière reste un peu le mutisme du fût de Bourgogne qui a un peu dur à se faire présent.

JorisPPattyn (10005) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2010
Deep garnet red with a small pink head, gone in seconds. Intense fruitnose (cherry,...) with some old wood ànd alcohol. Superb nose, inviting as none, reminiscent of the real Zottegemse Kriek from Crombé. Sourish-fruity, refreshing with "old cherries", wood, pinch of saffron and redcurrant. Again totally resembling the old Zottegemse Kriek - with just a slightly more watery mouthfeel. Lipsmacking acidity, superbly refreshing. EXCELLENT. Glenn, Davy, Mark, take note (<small> pretty please! </small>). Do a remake of this with a good dose of extra malts in the Kerasus, then barrel-age in the same way. As Struise recreated the original Kapittel Prior with Aardmonnik, so will you have resurrected the Zottegemse Kriek, of fond memory.
