ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2009
A nice red color with a 3 cm pink head that settles into nice lacings after a while. The smell is milder and more gentle than expected. Obviously, heres plenty of cherries, but they are accompanied by a prominent smell of fruit yogurt. Notes of fermenting fruit and a hint of tart apples. Some grass and wood. The smell is actually quite weird. Its not bad, its just not what I expect from a fruit lambic. The taste is better, though. However, the taste is also somewhat weak and easygoing, and it lacks a little complexity. Cherries with both sweet and tart edges dominate. Every now and then the cherry flavors goes a little candy-like. Some notes of grass and a somewhat sharp wheaty maltiness. Mild funky brett note. A hint of vanilla. The finish is tart, but far from being ruthlessly sour, with mineral flavors, some sweetness and lingering cherry notes. Medium body, not very sparkling mouthfeel. Nice dry finish. A good beer, but not great. The beer has a nice blend of tart and sweet flavors and it is very easy to drink. But its slightly too gentle and lame to get me really exited. It lacks some complexity. Still tasty, though. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

eManu (541) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2009
Pours a hazy deep red color with a light pink head. Aroma is very fruity and with some oak. Flavors are sour fruits, cherries with oak and a hint of vanilla. A little acid and dry finish. A very nice ballanced old style Kriek, one of the best and true Kriek, not overly sweet and light fruit taste.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
375 ml bottle. Brownish red colour. Clear. Medium-sized whiteish pink head. Cellary and acidic aromas with a delicate cherry-like almond aroma. Not that sour once it enters the mouth. Quite mellow and gentle in fact. Notes of leather. Very nice flavour. Surprisingly balanced. Gets drier towards the finish. A great beer.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours clear and blood red, with a tall head of spongy, bright pink foam. A wet wash leaves some splotchy, jagged flares of lacing behind. The aroma is bright with ripe, juicy cherry, showing sweet-tart and simple, if not overly saccharine. Lacking in funky tartness, i smells almost more like a simple fruit beer than a true lambic. Flavors too fall short in sourness, focusing primarily on sugary cherry, with distant hints of wood and vanilla showing on the back end. Medium bodied and lively on the tongue, the palate is overly sweet and sticky for the style. Decent at best, this is not my type of lambic.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012
2012-05-06, draught at Fairbar, rhus, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Beautiful ruby red color. Mild and harmonious aroma, with some cherries, cherry stones, sugar. Smooth mouthfeel; some impression of cherry syrup and grenadine, pomegranate, light strawberries; the acidity is very moderate, and it seems even less evident than the mild astringency. It seems more alcoholic than it really is.
An easy Lambic.

2009-08-28, corked bottle, 37cl, bb 0706 (whatever it means)
Cloudy red color; persistent head. Out of the bottle, immediately an aroma of cherries; it gets lighter and later there is just some aroma of wood. Aggressive mouthfeel, tart and acidic, very lemony, but never exceeding, and only with a vein of cherries. Tart final. Rough but solid, not much fruity, for tough drinkers.

DSG (12576) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/8/09] Bottle at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Deep burghundy color with a big, slowly-diminishing, pinkish-beige head. Aroma of cherries, sugary candies, some caramel, wood and light medicinal quality notes. Sweetish flavor mixed with some nice tartness - cherries, marzipan hints, wood and some earty notes. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. A nice Kriek.
