Tap(@Alles Gärbar, Bochum): Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, no head to speak of; almonds, cherries, wood and vinegar in the sour and sweetish nose; moderate, still not too strong, sour flavour, moderately balanced by a well detectable residual sweetness, light to medium bodied, tart MF; lingering fruity, almondy and a bit balsamico-like finish, sorrounded by typical Lambik flavours. Yes, yes! A very fine Lambik of high drinkability… Borup (15969) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 4, 2015
From tap. Clear reddish colour with a reddish head. Aroma and flavour of sourness, yeast, cherries, oak and acidic. AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014

Couleur rose-rouge, pas très foncée pour une kriek. Belle texture bien soyeuse. Evidemment plate. On sent le goût Girardin et également "kriek", belle réussite, pas trop acide et bine rond. Alengrin (5902) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Girardin’s unblended cherry lambic, purplish red in colour, no head as expected for the style. Refined, honest and earthy character, delicate funkiness, cheesy, very fruity with enough real cherries; still unsweetened contrary to the bottled kriek and in that sense a lot more interesting for lambic lovers, relatively mild, and very elegant. Great example of its particular style, like their regular lambic.

Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask au ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Arômes très fruités de cerises confites. Légères notes sauvages. Robe rouge et limpide, très faible effervescence et peu de mousse. En bouche, les fruits sont très présents, montrant un caractère de tarte aux cerises. Le lambic apporte quelques notes sauvages qui tentent de percer au travers des fruits. Finale bien sèche et légèrement acide (beaucoup moins que le Oude Kriek moyen). Très bon!

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 27, 2014
Dark red colour with no real head. Noses of sour cherries and woody. The taste is also offering mainly sour cherry notes but all rather well balanced. Sour with some sweet notes to it. The finish is a bit fruity dry.
