Ruby red color with a slight ring of white, bubbly head. Aroma hints at cherry. Tart meets medicinal cherry (though not in such a bad way); bittersweet.

Pour is ruby with an insanely large off-pink head.
Aroma is funky, lightly tart cherry, mineral, sulphur, and pitted fruit.
Taste is funky, lightly cherry, nutrasweet, plastic, butter, sulfur, more funk, and mineral sweat. Almost no real sourness. Just a strange change of pace. Tastes like plastic and smashed assholes.
Finish is slightly sweet, bitter, and a bit watery.
Interesting. traPISSED (106) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 5, 2010
75cl bottle at home vintage 2008. Lots of cherries and smoke on the nose. The taste is cherries sourness and smoke. This is not bad but I feel that cantillon beats it. Far from commercial but not my favorite. Would like to try again. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle at T’ Brugs Beertje in Bruges. Black cherry colored pour with a big rose-colored head. Aroma holds light cherry, sweet fruity funk, and some hay- more subtle than many krieks. Flavor is very light and fruity, and the spontaneous fermentation isn’t quite as aggressive as I would like. Palate is light and crisp. Nice, but not on the level of Girardin’s black label.

Bottled 375ml. Ordered from erzbiershop.ch. Good head retention. Reminiscence of marzipan and yoghurt throughout. Balanced. Not really my kind of kriek.

Bottle 37.5 BB 2010,
pours hazy red, with a frothy pink head. Light, slightly sweet, cherry aroma. Taste is a nice mix of sweet and sour, though quite dry. Finish is also dry and slightly sour. Nothing fancy, but a very descent kriek nonetheless. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2010

Pours an amber raspberry with an aroma of peel-the-paint-off-the-car sour cherry. Flavor is subdued cherry with a finish of tart and light raspberry. A bit watery on the tongue. Good beer but this one was aged a bit too long. It’s lost its intensity.
Bottled sample. Rose in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of cherry cordial syrup, backed by some flaked wheat. Sweet cherry upfront in the mouth, along with pumpkin pie spices (mace, cinnamon, etc.). Fairly sweet on the palate, but the finish is mercifully tart. More like a semi-sweet dessert beer than a serious sour kriek. Not bad.
