GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Sampled this side-by-side with a bottle of RR Supplication and a bottle of 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek. Poured a clear deep ruby, cranberry juice color. The head was thin and white. Oak and red wine nose. A wine enthusiast would surely cringe, but the aroma was vaguely reminiscent of a pinot noir. In comparison, the Oude Kriek was more cherry syrup-like. Light to medium bodied and moderately acidic without any significant sugars. Red wine vinegar, unripe berries, and oak flavors. Very well put together. While similar, Supplication had lemon, lime, and candy notes which were not present in the others. The Oude Kriek was thicker and a bit more syrup-like with a stronger dark cherry flavor.

Moravius (1291) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 20, 2017
Flasche („Oude Kriek van Schaerbeekse krieken 35 %", Alk. 5 %, 75 cl, abgefüllt 2008 und etliche Jahre daheim gelagert). - Rubinrot, klar, rosafarbener Schaum. - In der Nase die typisch kellermuffigen Geuze-Aromen, nur zarte Sauerkirsche und ein ganz leichter Hauch von Fäkalien. - Im Antrunk dominiert intensiv zitronige Säure mit bitterer Grapefruitschale und holziger Herbe; Sauerkirsche kommt nur am Rande vor. Mild rezent, sehr trocken. Im Abgang mild holzig herb. - Sehr intensiver Geuze-Charakter, weniger Kriek als erwartet. Zweifellos ein großartiges Bier, aber etwas zu heftig.

BuckeyeBoy (7718) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 8, 2017
750ml bottle at the brewery. Pours out deep red topped with a pink head. Nose is great rich tart sweet cherries barnyard barrel notes. Taste is more of the nice heavy hitting cherries sweet and funky tartness.

pastymc (43) - Niscemi, ITALY - FEB 1, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2017 Bottiglia da 75 cl presso 3 Fonteinen di Lot (lambik o?droom). Schiuma rosé volatile e poco persistente, colore rosso fragolino. Al naso stalla, calzini sporchi ma coadiuvati dall’odore di ciliegie selvatiche che avvolge. Al gusto è un’esplosione acida di frutta con un finale acido e astringente ma non acetico. Carbonatazione molto vivace, da stile. Direi perfetta nel suo stile in tutte le sfaccettature.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 Bottle at the brewery. Hazy ruby pour with a fine-grained pink head. Tons of sour cherries, cherry cores, raw almonds, minerals, barnyard funk, macerated cherries. Very dry, light and refreshing. Delicious.
