75cl bottle @Irreale, Madrid. 13-04-2015.
Bottled 2012.
Pours reddish with nice pinkish head. Fast vanishing head, little to poor lacing. Sour, cherries, lactic, spicy and horseblanket nose. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is really sour, cherries, some spicy, clove, cinnamon, lots of brett character, wet cellar, nutmeg. Lovely.

mariuspoenari (2850) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 375ml bottle at the brewery, 2013 sticker. Hazy ruby pour with a pink head. Tons of cherries, both macerated and fresh, cherry cores, almonds, roasted chestnuts, lambic funk, mineral components, all perfectly balanced. Light body, medium to high carbonation and a tart, refreshing finish.

2011 vintage, at the brewery - delicious, but slightly below the 2013 vintage. A bit more dry, more emphasis on the cherries as opposed to the almonds/chestnuts. 4.6/5

Mjollnir (410) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2016
750mL bottle, vintage 2007 bottled 2009. Pours clear bright red with a subdued light pink head. Aroma of cherries, acid and a little funk with some esters. High tartness, while the cherries are still strong despite the age, some light medicinal flavours. Light body with a lingering tart and fruity finish.

Bottle. Pours red with small pinky head. Aroma of great tart cherries mixed with al.ond and berries. In taste medium to high level of tartness, bit funky and very fruity. Medium body, bit oily, fizzy carbonated. Finish is cherry and tart, no vinegar at all. Fantastic kriek.

Erzengel (9080) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
2013er bottle, 37.5cl. Funky sour nose. The Sourness is smooth, the cherries intense, not sweetish but very round and complex. The aftertaste is long, dark cherries, lots of fruitiness with not too sour body. Fantastic.

ctipping (2179) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2016
750 mL bottle.. 2009 bottle. Bottled September 1, 2011. Originally reviewed 4/20/2013. Bright pink with a faint pink head. Thick collar. Hazy. Really nice cherry aroma. Deep cherry. Oaky and vanilla is very strong. A ton of acidity but not a ton of funk. Tastes of sour cherries. Lots of oak. Vanilla. Funk is much stronger. Barnyard is more prominent here too. The cherries are the star of the show though. Dry, very sour. Medium body. Fantastic cherry flavor. Best characteristic of this beer.
