UPDATED: AUG 8, 2009 Draft at Max’s. Deep ruby red color. Very acidic vinegar aroma with lots of cherries. Really delicious. Nice and sour cherry taste with a really creamy oak finish. Heavenly

The most beautiful beer. Deep clear ruby color with a little pink head to go along. The ever amazing geuze flavors of horsestble, hayloft and barnyard is complementes with cinnamon, clove, pepper, cherries and a complexity that keeps my nose in the glass forever. The taste completes the experience with matchin sourness and I want more

This is the beer that should be the first in the standings! We say to the family Cantillon thanks for the existence of these treasures!

Dull red, pink head that fizzles into lacing and disappears. Nose is tart cherries, wood, subtle sweetness. Taste is tart cherries, oak, tart yogurt. Very light and dry mouthfeel. Lingering tart yogurt finish.

Another wonderful Kriek from this brewery. Great use of different sour cherries, the fermentation turned out fantastic, with perfect palate. One of the most complex Krieks I have had, and real balanced to match.

Had it here at brewery by my pad. Pours deep cherry and maroon and somewhat hazy. Nose is cherry pie and other red fruits such as raspberries and strawberries, predominately cherry. Very tat and then more cherry. Finishes dry and smooth. Excellent.
