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. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Aroma has a nice hint of vanilla in it - it’s like smelling a cherry cake with vanilla frosting. Medium + tartness level. Flavor has the fruit right up front, but with a drier, elegant finish. Really nice. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle sampled on 9/3/09: Transparent blood red with a clingy, well-lacing light pink head. Aroma of semi-sweet fresh cherries and some tart oaky character. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with a hint of lightly sweet pale malts and fruity cherries revealing vinous oaky notes and puckering acidity toward the finish. Pretty well-balanced for the style with good fruity complexity. jfb (6574) - GERMANY - APR 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2011 (bottle) pours a clear perfect ruby colour with a frothy light pink head. aroma of fresh cherry pulp and hay, some citrus, lots of vanilla and a slight doughiness. flavour is mostly cherries, initially quite sweet, with some notes of wheat, citrus, light sour funk, peaches, a hint of herbal hops and a medicinal dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. not very complex, but nicely balanced.

Pours a deep red with aromas of sour, light cherries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Cherries seeped through enough and it was smoothe and easy. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 16, 2010
375mL white label. Wow- seriously sucked again. Pours artificial looking deep pink with a thin pink head- no lace. Aroma is slight sour cherries, some cherry candies. Taste is very sweet like cherry cough syrup. Gross. Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2010
Aroma of funk and fruits. Appearance is ruby-red with small white head. Taste is sour with a clear taste of fruits. Overall a very pleasant beer that’s not as complex as some other fruit lambics. LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 5, 2010
Simile al kriekenlambik, è una delle kriek tradizionali più dolci che mi sia capitato di assaggiare; però è comunque acida e buona, rinfrescante, meno sgarbata dei capolavori di Cantillon ma piuttosto godibile. wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2010
Cask, New Oxford, Salford. Deep cherry red colour with a good sized pillowy light pink head. Quite a looker. Sour cherry aroma with a healthy dose of barnyard funk.. Flavour is gently sour and there is a lovely subtleness here which is quite enchanting. Vinuous with notes of wood and almond. Just loads happening to tantalise your taste buds. Top class.
