jakubwloszcz (206) - Piastw, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Barwa czerwona, obfita, rżowa piana, fajnie oblepia szkło. Aromat intensywny, kwaśny, wiśniowy, w tle stajnia i lekka skra. W smaku jest solidnie kwaśne, są wiśnie, niedojrzałe owoce, wysycenie jest spore, zostaje posmak tanin.

ctipping (1657) - Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2016
750 mL bottle. 2008 bottle. Originally reviewed 9/1/2013. Light reddish body. Small white head. A few wisps. Nose has cherry and a ton of acidity. Little bit of hay. Some faint funk, but its there. Grain is strangely the first flavor. Then sour cherry. And I mean really sour cherry. Intense sourness of all kinds. Lactic and even some acetic acid. All other components are masked. Overly sour. Medium carbonation. Dry body. This is way too sour. Good otherwise.

2016 bottle; Aroma: just getting cherries with a hint of sourness; Appearance: dark red with fluffy pink head that dissipates after lots of fizzing; Taste: starts with tart cherries and ends with some sourness; slightly sweet; Palate: light bodied with long, cherry finish; Overall: very refreshing and enjoyable; would get again if not extremely expensive.

Lele (477) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 27, 2016
ASPETTO: color amarena quasi limpido, schiuma rosa, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: soprattutto acido, vinoso, marcio, con anche un po di amarena. GUSTO: come al naso, bollicine finissime e che si sentono. Buona, ma ho assaggiato kriek migliori. Consigliata con i dolci.

Batavi (376) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2016
Fles gekocht via The Beershop Online, uitgeschonken in Cantillon tasting glas. Prachtige oudroze kleur, met een kleine bruisende roze schuimkraag, die zich snel terugtrekt. Fruitige aroma's van zurige verse kersen en amandelen, vermengt met de typische Cantillon aroma's van eikenhout, paardendekens, vochtig hooi en stalgeur. Het smaakpallet is uiteraard zuur, maar zeer fruitig en gebalanceerd door een zoetje van de kersen. Smaakt zoals een echte kriek moet smaken, puur natuur, geen zoete kunstmatige smaken. Verder notities van eikenhout, aardse tonen, en paardendeken. De carbonatie is medium, de afdronk is zeer droog en fruitig. De bieren van Cantillon, blijven een klasse op zich in hun stijl, ook deze kriek, is de op 1 na beste kriek die ik tot nu toe heb geproefd, op de Hanssens Oude Schaerbeekse Kriek na. Als ik ergens deze Cantillon zie koop ik hem onmiddellijk. Lijkt me ook interessant om te laten rijpen, voor een verdere smaakontwikkeling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
