poisoneddwarf (2563) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2013
12 oz corked and capped green bottle, bottled June 29, 2012; 7 months old. Pours hazy ruby red with a medium pink-white head with decent retention. Aroma is strong in cherry pits, almonds; some funk in there, too. Taste is sour with a full-on cherry assault. This is the real stuff; it tastes like cherries grown from wild trees, no artificialness here; reminiscent of cherry pie, with hints of spice to go along with the fruit. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation fine. Really tasty.

Mishnok (329) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2017
Good, well balanced kriek, looks appealing with a red body topped with some pink foamy head. The cherry sweetness balances well with the sour tartness giving a more complex palate and a smoother finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer-yum (1760) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2017
Tart fruit aroma in a cloudy deep red pour. Slightly sour flavor profile with subtle hints of cherry and wood. An excellent example of the style.

Trolleo (1587) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 6, 2017
Extremely Cloudy red color with small pink to red head and high retention. Aroma of cherries, wooden barrel, wet wood. Taste is a mixture of sour and salty. Aftertaste is like salted wold.

huineman (717) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 5, 2017
75 cl bottle at Cantillon Brewery and Museum, Brussels, served in Sherry wine glass, shared with my father. It pours cherry red (no wonder) with just a hint of pinkish, low retention, non-lacing, head. Aroma is cherry (no wonder), fermentig bread, yeast. Pretty much it all. Taste is dry, light-bodied, fantastic carb (in the right spot: not fizzy, not flat; exactly a mousse sensation that fills the mouth.) Short-lasting, slightly bitterish finish.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Fruity/dark berry aroma, very rich and sour in taste. like drinking haribo sour cherry sweets

DavidSvinth (55) - DENMARK - JUL 31, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 Cantillon kan laves deres frugtlambikker knastørre, og det er noget helt andet end det nogen gange kvalmende fra fx Lindemanns.

axl (900) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2017
300ml draught. Deep red with one finger pink head. Aroma is light acidic with cherries, cherry pits, almonds and very light funk. Taste is gently acidic with well integrated cherries, cherry pits, almonds, citrus, hay and light funk. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and very well integrated cherry aftertaste.
