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.

robinvboyer (4363) - 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 (1475) - 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

Fukito (1031) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle - January 07 - thanks Omhper! Pours an amazing ros champagne-like color with a diminishing white head and a cuve like effervescence. The color shows a very unique velvet appareance. Aroma is a mix between red fruit juice, some vinegar and a touch of sugar, slight horse saddle. Captivating. Taste is really nice, some fruits, vinegar, full salty in my palate. Refreshing. Sparkling mouthfeel and very refreshing. Some woody and vinous notes as it goes down. This champagne I like!!! Hell It took me about and hour and a half to finnish

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a clear ruby copper color, and even though it is quite effervescent, whatever very little white foam there is dies away immediately. Sharp tart funky aroma - nice! Tart cherry and sour lemon flavor - very juicy. Barnyard funk is prominent throughout, and even more so in the lemony aftertaste. Light body, light carbonation.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2006
cloudy off rededish brown w/ hints of orange and a fairly dense off white head w/ some good lacing. Well funked aroma lots of leathers some very earthy horse spawning yard smell some definate sour fruits w/ cherries. Palate is well coated lightly carbonated well lingering. Flavor is a verty tart fruit lots of bitter cherries and hints of leather almost musky very dry finish w/ an oaky woody note as well. Well done.

Tmoney99 (14021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy reddish color with an average frothy reddish head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour cherry aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium sour cherry flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Sour refreshing brew.

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2006
(Bottle) Red colour with orange tinges and frothy, white, brief head. Hazy with sediment, clear without. Fruity, sourish nose with distinct cherry aromas, notes of red-currant and stable, a hint of smoke (or rather the aroma of freshly lit matches). Acidity drawing slightly in the vinegar direction. Musty and fresh at the same time. Fresh, sour taste with cherries and red-currant, a hint of raspberries as well. Very dry, but not harsh. Very fresh compared to most traditional krieks, but still with the dryness and acidity that is characteristic for the style. Brilliant!

rederic (3312) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2006
Hazy reddish-brown hue, with an off-white head, musty nose, with a barnyard accent, with an almondy cherryish note, a bit dusty, wet oakiness and tartness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart acidic cherryish character, less agressive than expected, but still having the traditional lambic aspect, with an oakiness note, nice sourness and sharpness, wet wood accent, leading towards a dry tartness finish.
