MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Tap at the drafting room. Cloudy red with little head. Aroma of sour cherries, yeast funk and a little barnyard. Taste was mostly sour, with a bit of sweet malt. Acidic Finish. Very good.

Draught: Aroma of tart, sour cherries. Smells sweet. A bit like cough medicine. Poured blood red with a small pink head. Very tart flavor. Made me pucker and salivate. Also tasted of cherries. No carbonation. Light texture. Too tart.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle (750ml - 2003 vintage). Shared with blankboy and GregClow, blankboys bottle courtesy of his 2006 SecretSanta. Poured thick, almost chunky deep red, large pink head - almost perfect. Aroma - holy crap - deep yeast funk, sour cherry, lush, goddamn great. Fresh sour cherry with a sweet thick malt base, waves of lanolin and burnt rubber yeast/funk, the flavour rolls and shifts on my palate - my wife (didnt like it) said "lemon juice!" - very acidic but I think well behaved. Thick, acidic, mildly carbonation, medium linger - just friggin amazing, one of my favorites.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & blankboy - courtesy of blankboy. 2003 vintage. Deep ruby red with a lovely pink head. Aroma - sour cherry, dark wood, aged vinegar - nice! Flavour - oh, yeah! Seriously puckering, but so good - sour cherries, balsamic vinegar, super dry wine. Mmmmmmm!

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 11-23-06. 2001 bottle. Clear ruby red body and lovely pink head; medium carbonation. Aroma of freshly picked dark cherries. Flavor is more of tart cherries, cant get enough of this. Earthy, oak character; dry yet juicy. Very enjoyable and dignified beer for a quiet thanksgiving dinner.

MiP (15378) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle. Nice acidic aroma. Hazy deep red colour. No head. The flavour is a little acidic with some mild/round notes. Quite earthy, ending on an acidic note. Very nice.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2007
2004 bottle. Pours a mysterious dark hazy ruby, with a nice small creamy head. Aroma gives the typical cantillon brett/hessian bag character, probably stronger than their other beers, there was also quite a bit of oak and old dry cherry. Smooth, tart body... the cherry seems less present than the plain kriek, and it just tasted a little old. Flavours were stronger in the finish, which showed plenty of musk, acid and a dry feel. Great.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Tap @ Obriens. Ruby, thin pink head. Nose is cantillon funk, cherry pits, earthy oak. Flavor is sour cherry, acidic lemony/rind, deep earthy fruit. Yeast and trademark Cantillon. Nice but I dont really love what Cantillon does with Krieks.

Holy moly is this stuff sour! But, at the same time, incredibly delicious. Im very glad I got to try this. Pungent cherry and beautiful to look at. Sour as all, get out. Tasted a little earthy as it warmed up, so get on it and drink it down quick-like. This will make the muscles in your neck tense up.
