COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2016
Hanssens Artisinals Oude Kriek 6% Pouring an orange rose with a sour cherry, lightly oaky and earthy funkiness in the aroma. Smells like itll be interesting. Oaky, black pepper funk and ascerbic cherries with a light acidity on a bright drinkable body. I like it, its edgy enough without getting too extreme plus it is reasonably priced.

Zlotta (2878) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2016
0.375 l bottle from belgiuminabox, best before August 2027. Clear, deep red, no head. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky aroma of sour cherries, redcurrant, sweat, bitter almond and oak. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky taste of sour cherries, redcurrant, oak, a bit of varnish and elderberry, followed by a short, very tart, dry finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and astringent mouthfeel, no carbonation. Due to the lack of any carbonation this feels a bit bland. Taste is still very intense and sour, especially in the finish, but it lacks a final kick. A bit of carbonation would have eased up the acidity as well.

onceblind (8900) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Murky dark cherry hue with a thin pink head. Earthy funky tart cherry nose, dark Belgian malts, sour yeast and wild earthiness. Big fresh cherry flavor, very bright, very clean with nice bright tart sour funk. Bit of strawberry throughout. Sweet cherry on the finish with a gentle touch of sour acidity.

Linnet (1793) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2015
Acidic, tart, yeasty, barnyard, lots of vinegar, not that fruity. Reddish color, medium head. Enjoyable and very powerful tartness, low bitterness, not that fruity, a bit too one dimensional. Medium body, tart finish. Enjoyable.

CraftBeerNick (2304) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at Nuetnigenough, 14th October 15. Pours nice dark pink, good. Aroma is cherry, funk, sour. Taste is fantastic, cherry jumps out, rich, full depth of flavour, some cherry stone and slight bitterness of skin, well balanced and spot on. Great Kriek, one of my favourites
