WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pretty easy to drink for a lambic. First, only moderate lambic nose, more fruit than funk or brett or lactobacillus. Hazy reddish pink, small vanishing head. Taste of cherries and a little sour notes, maybe yoghurt. Moderate palate. Again, easy to drink, hard to dislike, hard to love.

Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2017
0.25 l bottle from Brunne vun Klle as Belle-Vue Kriek Classique at 5.1% abv, best before November 2017. Clear, deep red with a medium large, foamy, stable, pinkish white head. Sweetish, a little sourish, sugary and fruity aroma of lots of cherry juice, sorbet powder and raspberry. Rather sweet, just a little sourish, very fruity (a bit artificial) aroma of cherry juice, sorbet powder, raspberry and a touch of almond, followed by a short, slightly tart, a bit dry but rather sugary finish. Thin to medium body, a bit astringent and fairly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay, just not too sweet and quite refreshing, but totally lacking depth and intensity.

czlowiekwiadro (857) - POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
zapach kwaśny, dość mało słodki, wyraźnie wiśniowy, w tle trochę słodw, poza tym czysty. kolor jasnoczerwonorżowy, lekko opalizujący, piana biała, skąpa i dość nietrwała, ale na powierzchni utrzymuje się cienką warstwą. w smaku dość wytrawne, mało kwaśne jak na styl (choć dalej dość kwaśne), czuć wiśniowe nuty ale nie dominują. w tle sporo słodw, gorzkich nut z pestek wiśni i kurzu. lekko kukurydziany posmak. goryczka wyraźna, pestkowa i kurzowa. nasycenie wysokie.

john44 (2997) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle. Cherry Red. Pink head. Sweet overall but with a tart sour cherries fruit edge. Dry finish. Slightly medicinal. Rather reminiscent of Cherry Tunes sweets. Didnt like it. (2008)

vinivini (1961) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 20, 2016
Tap. Nice clear cherry-red exterior. Tall, creamy pinkish head. The aroma combination cherry stone sweetness. And tartness with lambic yeastiness. Pleasant fruity taste. A bit sweeter than a good lambic is meant to be. Still decent.
