UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 bottle courtesy of bhops. i must be out of my freakin mind to rate this a 4.4 based upon all the other ratings. this is only my 2nd kriek and this beer was awesome. red pour with a very light pink head. slight sour/acidic scent. a very tolerable sourness with a cherry finish. thanks again bhops for bringing this bottle over.

(Draught) Pours hazy blood red. The aroma is of tart cherries, old oxidized, hops, cheese, horse blanket, basement and mold like yeast. Undertones of wood and wheat. The flavour is big time citric acid like alongside tones of tart cherries, wood and moldy yeast. The mouthfeel is heavily sour, tart and dry with a light sticky twist. Light to medium bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Draught at the Rover. Hazy ruby red with a thin pinkish white head. Frsh cherry aroma with some barnyard and wood. Way too sour as usual.

375 ml bottle, very little carbonation. Smells of sour cherries, heavy horseblanket and barnyard (all of the classically iconic lambic aromas) Taste is powerfully acidic, reminds me of acerola vitamin c tablets, the cherry is there but plays a supporting role in this cast of flavors. Will clean any palate for the next course at dinner. The slightest bit of body disappears instantly and finishes out bone dry. Unmistakably Cantillon.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2008
From a bottle--Poured a bright ruby body, much like the Oud Beersel kriek. This beer was more sour and more sharp on the tongue. Very acidic, funk,y tart, and bright to the palate. Cherry sour power. Killer!

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 (1774) - 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.
