Bottle from the dick rider himself, smitty. Somehow he was able to get me a 2004 bottle for next to nothing. I think he did a little under the desk work, if you know what i mean. Pours out a bright red color with a pink head on it. Smells like cherries and oak / wood. (not surprising). Taste is sweet and has almost a weird spice to it, that goes away after your mouth gets used to it. Very smooth, and almost refreshing without being overly sour. Good stuff, Id like to have more.

From a 75 cl bottle, corked and capped, purchased in a bottle shop in Belgium circa 2010. Front bottle label reads 2008, but fine print shows it was bottled in 2010. Poured a cloudy rose color with a fine and small pinkish head. Aromas included almond, cherry and classic gueuze funk. Very smooth and only moderately sour with a dry finsih. This one aged well.

10/11/2017 - 75cl bottle shared by hackobock @Cantillon. Nice red colour with a small pinkish head. Nose is pure fruits, real kriek. Taste is pure fruit too, thick kriek taste, hints of wood, bit dry. It doesn't happen much that I like Kriek beers so much. Really lovely. Maybe it was the good company.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 (2014) Oh man this is impressive. It so intensively fruity (like a fresh cherry pick from the ground and squashed). Great carbonation, wonderful tart to sour palate. Beautiful.

Bardzo wyraźna, delikatna wiśnia, dość dzikie, ale kwaśność na w miarę niskim poziomie, pyszne kandyzowane wiśnie z muśnięciem taniny i wanilii, gładkie i swietnie ułożone, rewelacja.

@ Cantillon BXL Very sour cherry aroma. Taste is sharp acidity with pure cherry juice. Puckering palate. Aftertaste is nice cherry.

Lou pepe kriek 2014 750 mL bottle at the brewery. This is stark red with pink head. Aroma is acked with funky barn, pepper, fruit vinaigrette with soft and genuine cherry notes. That's not too say the cherry isn't way up front, but it's noticeably mellower with its age. Oak is constantly in the background while tart cherry pie flavors take over. Excellent level of acidity makes this refreshing.

Pours hazy deep burgundy with low purple head. Aroma of cherries, almond icing, red berries, red grapes. Taste is medium cherry tart with a mild sweet berry finish. Light and crisp body with average carbonation.
