Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2008
2004 bottle. Poured slightly hazy pinkish-amber with very little head settling on top. The aroma picked up funky yeast, saturated oak, and cherry vinegar with a bit of wet blanket on the back.. very, very sour and gripping. The flavor was bracingly sour the whole way through with cherry skins and vinegar leading the way.. earth and horse blankets complement with a cherry Sweet Tart impression on the finish. Powerfully sour and bone dry on the palate leaving a scorching sour trail through the finish.. the cherries return afterward in dusty form. Good, but not my favorite from Cantillon.

This fruit-lambic pours a cheery red color from a cap and corked 12oz bottle. Small sized slightly pinkish head. The aroma is tart cherries, some malts and some wood. A medium bodied lambic. Very tart cheery flavor. Touch of oak and some horse blanket and malt. Very tart and acidic tasting, with very little sweetness to balance. The tartness has some staying power. Nice crisp and bone dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is tart and sour.

Stine (1765) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Poured from a 750 ml bottle, vintage 2007. Cloudy ruby red pour. Still acidic body. Soft tannic fruit aroma. Light wet grassiness. Laid back funk; gym socks, compost, cheese. Big funky fruit flavor and dry, pungent cheese stink underneath. Bloody acidic citrus juice texture; wisps of tangy cherry vinaigrette and violently dry pomegranate arils before the finish, where a long, dusty sharp funk extends slowly. Lovely balance of punchy and calm; confronting and simple at the same time. Thanks Eric!

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a small pink head. Nose is sour cherry. Taste is a heavy sourness up front and cherry sweetness in the back...Good stuff, very good stuff.

Ruby slipper red with the slightest carbonation. Nose is strongly tart, with a sniff causing the jowls to tighten. Highly acidic in the mouth, with a slight sweetness from the cherry. Tough to drink on its own, this beer calls for an equally opinionated cheese to add some balance.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2008
0.33l bottle from Evil Eye Lounge, York. Pours a vivid red, not as dark as other krieks. Medium head lasting quite a while. Smell is cherries and citrus. Taste is much the same, cherry taste is clear with a strong background of lemon making it pretty sour, then a long sour finish. A bit too sour for my tastes but ok for sipping.

Deep nearly ruby pour tiny whisp of pink head, will streak the glass while drinking. Very mild aroma sweet cherries a touch of wet blanket and very earthy. Palate is avg body w/ a great coating and firm tartness. Flavor is very tart cherry some light leathers the dry woody characters bret comes through in the finish sucking the moisture right off my tongue. Very well blended tastes. Good but I wasnt in love with this.

Pours an orangey-pinkish-red with a bit of light pink lacing. Sweet and sour aroma of cherries - almost like pie filling. Intense sour taste of cherries that picks up a bit of sweetness as it goes. Lingering sourness that fades a bit quickly. Very nice taste.
