OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, - JAN 6, 2006
Couleur rougeâtre, apparence semi opaque surmontée d’une énorme mousse rose. arômes de sirop de cerise et de punch aux fruits, le comble de l’artificiel. Saveurs unidimensionnelles de jus de cerise, de gomme baloune et de friandises pour amuser les petits. Aucune caractéristique sauvage ni d’acidité n’est au rendez-vous. Carbonatation piquante prenant beaucoup d’espace, texture aqueuse. Ne devrait jamais pouvoir porter l’appellation de lambic. Bouteille 37.5cl (de trop), Délirium Café, Décembre 2005.

From bottle thanks to George. Red color with almost no head. Malty and yeasty aroma, sweet cherries, some tart notes, light funky, wood. Sweet and acidic taste. Medium oily body with soft to flat carbonation.

sjogro (4843) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2017
Bottle at home. Dark red pour with greyish ring head. Sweet cooked cherries, light and distant balsamic vinegar brown/sour note, tart cherry pie, alpro soy blueberry yoghurt, and a bunch of cardboard in between. Moderate sweet and light bitter, faintest sour note, pie tartness. Medium body and soft carbonation. Cherry pulp rich texture. Very sessionable. Wouldn’t call this a sour but it’s not a typical sweetened either, this is far less sugary sweet than some of the widely available commercial krieks. The sweetness feels pretty natural. Not a bombastic palate but more like a murky natural fruitdrink. Also it says abv is 5% but it drinks like it’s 2%.

Silvan7 (1273) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 7, 2017
Bottle @ home. colore viola/porpora, opalescente, con schiuma rosa, non molto fine ne molto persistente. Aroma non troppo intenso per lo stile , frutta rossa, vino bonarda, ciliege, vaniglia, legno, amarena. Gusto acido, ma non estremo, leggermente amato, luppolo vecchio. legno e vaniglia, fruttato di ciliegia. lattica. abbastanza carbonata, poco calda, lieve sentore alcolico decisamente spigolosa, corposa. piuttosto equilibrata ed armonica

Bottle. Pours a deep red color with no head. Has a fruity acidic cherry aroma. Fruity weak sour tart cherry and almond flavor. Has a fruity weak sweetish cherry and almond finish.

Koelschtrinker (21828) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 3, 2017
Süß muffiger Kirschantrunk. Dumpf, die Kirschnoten wirken rund, insgesamt aber laff und wenig intensiv. Hm. 8/7/6/7//6

Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Purple, with pink foam. Smells like cherry with Balsamic vinegar. Taste is pretty much the same, with some red wine notes. Not bad, really...

kerenmk (5269) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks DSG. Dark red. Sweet, sugary and cherry aroma. Sweet, sugary, a little cherry liquor in the mouth. Full body, syrupy, light fizz, deep cherry finish. Too sweet for me.

Zlotta (3974) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2016
0.375 l bottle from ’Belgiuminabox.com’, best before December 2016 (apparently bottled in December 2012). Clear, very dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, pinkish white head. Sweetish, very fruity aroma of cherries, sorbet powder and some almond. Quite sweet but not overly so, very fruity and a little sourish taste of cherries, almond, a bit of oak and some sorbet powder, followed by a short, slightly tart and minimally vinous finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice, not too sweet and with intense cherry flower, some lambic character left as well.

zvsn (2320) - ISRAEL - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks DSG. Hazy red amber, no head. Aroma of cherries, jam and candy. Pretty sweet, flavors of cherries, brown sugar, candy, wine notes, mild tartness. Medium-bodied, sticky on palate. Nice.

DSG (15301) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Deep red with a bit of pinkish foam. Big sweet jammy cherries aroma. Sweetflavor with cherries, sugar, faint tartness. Aroma is better than flavor, and quite sweet overall, but still very nice.
