Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Mouth wrecking sour, but so damn tasty. Just like Halia, I love this one. Cherries, oak, sour citrus, awesome.

marthares (53) - - MAY 26, 2015
One of the nicest beers tasted at Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Pours hazy reddish light brown, the nose immediately perceives something between sour, funk, and ripe red fruits; taste is strongly acid (which is nice), notes of vanilla and red berries; nice full cherry aftertaste

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle sample @ Leuven Beer Innovation 2015, shared with the RB Belgian crew. Cuivre sur un lger trouble, col blanc. Arme est fruit trs prenant au niveau des cerises-griottes, rtro-nasal bois de chne et une petite note aigrelette. Palais est lger avec un trs beau profil fruit aigrelet et suret de cerise. Le tout se mlange superbement des notes boises qui ajoutent un note sche en fin de bouche. Retrouve galement une touche pice du bois. Une chouette dcouverte, belle balance entre fruit et acidul qui rivalise avec les grands noms du paysage belge.

Alengrin (4830) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Flemish oud bruin style kriek with stable, sticky, off-pinkish head and hazy burgundy colour with bright ruby hue. Lots of sour cherries in the nose, some vanilla tannins and wood, fruit yoghurt, vague hint of caramel, lemony touch; soft sour taste, very fruity with tons of sour cherries again, sour cream lactic acidity, medium carbo, fruit and lactic sourness softening in the end, where a caramelly malt sweetness turns up; finish is a mixture of the initial, drying sourness, the malt sweetness and drying woody tannins. Quite a nice and genuine example of this particular style, but I personally do not think it is already at the same level as e.g. Liefmans Cuve Brut, to which this is clearly closely related - but nevertheless very close, I have to admit.

guiroul33 (255) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAY 25, 2015
Sample @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival 2015. Only by smelling it I knew I would love this one. Probably one of the best kriek I have had so far.

JorisPPattyn (9673) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Muddy red-brown beer, small rim. Sourish, very fruity nose, lactic, obvious red fruit. Mouth-puckering acidity, cherry bomb, wood. Light MF, probably because of acidthinning, spritzy carbonation. Very good, worthy of G.I.!
