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.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2009 Bottle from Uto. Opaque pinkish brown with no head. Not like the picture at all. Funny, its more of a lemon lime nose than cherry, much like a regular geueze rather than a kriek. Sour and tangy, which I like but still no sign of cherries, did I get a mislabelled bottle?. Salty with notes of yeast. Acidic and fizzy, sediment from the last pour adds some body. Good but not what I expected. (8/3/8/3/16)
Bottle from Nelson Wines. Wow, this is the best bottle of this Ive ever had, so much rich black cherry and lambic funk, wow, just amazing!

vyvvy (6354) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours dark amber with almost no head. The aroma is lightly sour and quite tart with some light cherries that add to the other tartness. The aroma is quite full for a lambic. Medium body that is more full than most lambics with lots of crisp sharpness. The taste starts with a lush version of tartness, wild lambic yeast, sharp spice and tart cherries - very rich for the style, yet there is a sharp citric bite. The finish has much of the same. Thumbs up </B. for this enjoyable and wonderful lambic.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
750 ml bottle Very sour acidic cherry aromas off this very ruby brew. Very small head that left quickly. What a crazy sour flavor. I have had plenty sour beers, but this one seems to be the sourest so far. Sour cherries, and still acidic through the finish. Very yummy. Now to have this pucker surgically removed from my face....

Miksu (5053) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2007
0.375 bottle. Hazy red-amber color. Strong sour and leathery aroma with sulphur, rose, strawberry and cherry. Intense sour flavor with strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Fairy acidic beer, but not overly so.

750ml bottle at Cohen and Cook in Bowling Green, OH. Pours a lovely red with a thin head. The aroma is tart cherries and lambic funk and both dominate the flavor as well. Lively on the palate and sour, the tartness continues into the dry finish. I got a friend to try this one who doesnt even like beer and she liked it, so that was nice.

robinvboyer (4482) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
definetly has that barnyard lambic smell. pour a deep ruby red with a little pink head. Not much depth in the flavour though, i can detect some cherry in there, but the sourness is quite overpowering. The sourness is definetly taking away from the cherries.

JoeinDahlem (1480) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 Some krieks can taste like little more than red lambics--heavy on sour but with fruit that is perhaps too subtle. Not the case here! Youve got the musk, sourness and citric acidity youd expect, mellowed by blending, but with cherries powerful enough to balance into a drink that can refresh as well as be contemplated. Enjoyed the hell out of this.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle at Simon & Lalas. Clear reddish - white edges. Salt & vinegar, rubber, rubber-glue, light (but clearly) cherries, gooseberries, this is fantastic !! Thanks to Jacob & Dixen for this present to Mette.
