MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured dark muddy blood with a small, pink, frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma had almost perfume like characteristics with notes of roses, violets, crushed raspberries, sour cherries, wild yeast and salt water. Flavor was extremely tart with a massive acidic bite; gooseberry skins, sour cherries, red wine vinegar and light notes of oysters & salty brine. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/spritzig mouthfeel, ever-so slightly syrupy texture and a superb length finish. Amazingly delicate yet infinitely complex.

In your face sour cherry flavour and aroma. It then smooths out to be a beautiful funky cherry beauty.

KraftowyJakup (119) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Ładna barwa, czerwono-rżana, biała skromna piana. W aromacie ocet winny, dojrzała wiśnia, trochę skry, funk. W smaku dość kwaśne, jak na krieka, troszkę owocowej słodyczy, finisz cierpki, taniczny, pestkowy.

tmzl (292) - SLOVENIA - FEB 9, 2017
2015 bottle, roughly a year old. Balance towards sour cherries, superb interplay with light medium malic and lactic acid combined with very soft leathery funk. Almonds.

fiery_1 (584) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2017
375ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2015.12.28. Pours a very cloudy pinkish red colour with a decent pink head. Nose is tart cherries and classic Cantillon funk. Flavour is a nice balance of tart cherries, sourness, and sweetness all wrapped up in a tart but dry finish. Fine example of a kriek and look forward to my other vintages.

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
bottle, pours an opaque reddish pink with a small pink head. Aroma of pungent sour cherries, quite a bit of funk, and a bit of horse blanket. Flavour is very similar, bringing out moderately sour cherries, a prominent funkiness and moderate horse blanket. Everything is in great balance, tasting very pure. Really one of the best krieks out there. Excellent.

Zapach średnio intensywny, wiśnie, końska derka, stajnia, skra, drewno. Kolor czerwony, mętne. Piana średnio obfita, drobna, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. W smaku wytrawne, wysoka kwaśność, średnia pełnia, wiśnie, pestki, drewno, końska derka. Goryczka niska, wysycenie wysokie.

Ulysse (472) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2017
Elegant color. Strong aroma at first. Same for the cherry taste. A sip ends on a stingy feeling like eating black pepper.

Hazy red liquid, average, pink head. Light, sour aroma of fruits. Light body, average carbonation. Taste is dry sour, with a hint of fruits.

Arve_Christian (4964) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2017
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, I think it was from a special release a while back- bottled May 2014. Deep purple color, some Light foam in the edges. Medium aroma intensity; cherries dominate, also quite a lot of stable. Medium body & complexity. Good sourness and bitterness. Very enjoyable
