2011 vintage consumed on 11/22/13. From the second the bottle opens a wonderful aroma of sour cherries greets the nose. Color is a brightish red. The flavor is an incredibly bright sour with the cherries coming through magnificently without any of the Brett notes than can sometimes overwealm a lesser sour. As perfect an example of a Kriek that there is.
On tap. Reddish-brown colour with ten head. malt and cherry aroma. Sweet, malt, cherry, sour taste. Medium body. Meilby (11692) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2017

Perfectly made kriek, the sour cherries are awesome, the body is awesome, the sour is medium-high perfect. Cascade portland.

Tap at Au Trappiste. Pours darkest, almost black red with a white foam. Aroma is cherry, stones, funk, but the cherry aromas really open up after a while. Body is medium, cherries, but not as fruity as Belgian lambics often are. Clean sourness with a different kind of funk. Discreet but lively carbonation. Dryish palate. Good, not as intense as a typical Kriek would be. Rather straightforward and simple. Itzjerm (3119) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Typical sour cherry kriek. Tart slap then a bit of fruit. Not very complex.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouverkatrinaez (2247) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2017
Cloudy red cherry color. Mild aroma of cherry pits, some cherry juice, some sourness. Smooth mouthfeel, lean body; good malt base for a Sour, moderate cherry flavor, not juicy, no pit tannins; medium sour level; the finish is lemony and a bit astringent. Possibly, some acetic acid in the end.
Nice and clean, but with no depth.

Draught. Pours dark, dark red with a small pinkish-beige head. Aroma is cherries, vinegar, light oak, and light vanilla. Taste is sour cherries, some vinegar, oak, and a little spice. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Too much vinegar and it could definitely use more spice (or even oakiness) for balance. I definitely wouldn’t want a whole bottle of this, but in a 6oz pour it is good. Alusmamuts (2137) - LATVIA - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle of 2015. Hazy dirty red with small white head. Rich sour cherry aroma. Good fruity sourness rich of different cherry notes.
