Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2009
Deep purple with a nice pink head. Nice clean cherry aroma. Flavor is wellbvalanced acidic and sweet which all in all makes for a very refreshing kriek. Lovely.

Cask Stillage at the GBBF Earls Court, London 08/08/2008 Cherry fruit aroma. Ruby red coloured with some sour fruit flavour. Crisp and slightly dry in the finish.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2009
Pours a murky dark red color with a thick pinkish head. The aroma is pleasant, tart cherries are noticed along some mild funk. The flavor is quite solid, the tart cherries are still there, but its more wild and funky than the aroma. The body is light to medium with an oily, dusty texture and moderate carbonation. Like most Girardin lambics, this kriek has a lot of class and elegance, this is a very solid product.

Plovmand (8017) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle. Unclear reddish brown body with a red fluffy head. Light sour aroma with lots of cherries. I catch light mint notes as well. Flavour is ripe cherries with a medium sour touch. Medium bodied. Nice.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle shared by eclectic: Murky ruby pour with an off white bubbly ring of head. Musty sweet aroma- some almond paste notes and light oxidation- moldy wood notes as well. Light fluffy feel- sweet flavor- sweeter than I expected from Girardin, yet its natural and rounded. Some marzipan/almondy notes from the cherry with later papery musty character. Solid and natural fruit presence, but a tad sweet for my taste.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2009
375 ml bottle shared by eclectic at the Girardin Boxed lambic party. Pours a deep ruby violet amber- with a fizzy soda like carbonation- no head. Aroma is sweet, ripe cherry, cherree pureee and juice- sugary, with a hint of funky tartness. Flavor is tart cherries but not really ever getting sour, a bit thick and syrupy becoming a bit fakely sweet and cherry like, with a slick and sweetish finish. Meh.

MaxxDaddy (415) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2009
1997 bottle @ Akkurat. Pours very dark red with no head. Strangely, this one had an aroma reminiscent of port, which was a lovely surprise. I guess there wasnt much sourness here to being with, which makes sense given how the Framboise tasted. Taste is slightly sour fruity, but for whatever reason, I couldnt say it was a definitive cherry flavor. In any case, it was pretty tasty.

KyotoLefty (9713) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Huge head with the most beautiful deep red color Ive yet seen on a beer. Lactic, yogurt aroma with tons of cherries and moderate sourness, some funky blanket. Lovely balance in the mouth, with sweet cherry and sour, lactic acid, a bit of funk, almonds, almost vanilla ice creaminess. Perfectly smooth palate. Love it. A little less sweet and more sour and it would be perfect.

kwatoko (43) - BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle. Clear cherry red with slightly pink but firm white head. Aroma of cherry (what else) with maybe some citrus and what I believe to be wood. Very nice carbonation, taste is sweet with a light sour touch. Very refreshing and nice beer, but no match for 3 fonteinen or oud beersel (even though you could state it could be served on different sorts of occasions).
