Donker robijnrood bier zonder noemenswaardig schuim. Geur: krieken, zuur, kriekenpitten, hout. Smaak: zuur maar drinkbaar, krieken, tannine, noterig. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Lekkere kriek. Die stijl mogen ze allemaal hebben voor mij.

Bottle. Dark red color, no head. Aroma has a highly presence of berries, leather and barnyard. Flavor is highly acidic, very fruity, mainly dominated by cherries and berries, some wooden notes. Acidic in the final. Really enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Botella 37.5 cl en el Seňor Lúpulo Gijon 22.. 07.. 2017. (r246). Color rosado rojizo oscuro turbio con espuma blanca rosada persistente. Aromas frescos ácidos. Sabores intensos ácidos secos persistentes con ligeros afrutados cerezas, guindas. Cuerpo medio con buena sensación alcohólica y gran acidez seca y persistente. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda alguna.

0.37 l bottle from Koht Pudelpood, Tallinn, Estonia. Appearance is deep red/ruby, cloudy and still. Taste is really dry but with deep dry cherry taste not just super dry lambic. Beautiful - the ultimate cherry beer.

ClarkVV (6757) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2017
375mL bottled March 2015, drunk 6/3/17.
Bright, blood/cherry-red body shows high clarity and a pinkish-orange-tinted, off-white head that is large but fades quickly to cover. Quite well-carbonated, with sediment left behind.
Cherry skin, lightly and intensely tart greets the nose as biscuity, lightly cereal-like wheat lies behind it. Intense lactic character, per usual from these guys. It’s bright and fruity, but weighed down, a bit, by the massive surplus of acid. When you think of the best krieks out there (in my mind, 3F and Cantillon), sure there’s a good deal of acidity, but there’s plenty of softer, more easygoing Brett and not as much intense, tannic cherry skin assault (unless you’re talking about late 90’s, early 00’s Cantillon Kriek, in which case it’s just as sour, but still brighter and less tannic). Regardless, it’s still clean and very sniffable, with real cherry character, no oak or apple or really anything unwanted.
Bitingly sour in the mouth, with the one-two punch of sour cherry acidity and bacterial lactic acidity really puckering the shit out of the palate. Moderate carbonation, nice and tight, helps disperse the acidity as best it can, but this stuff is still painfully sour. Slick-to-malty texture with tons of wheat and light oak tannin. Bone dry and enjoyable if you like the intense sour stuff, which I do, but probably still a bit dominated by the lactic character, at this point. Would imagine this will soften nicely in five or so years.

Pours a deep purple body with almost no head. Aroma is rich of cherries with a sour sting. Taste is really sour at start with a very nice cherry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czlowiekmotyka (354) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 26, 2017
A little bit too acidic for my taste. Cherries are really there but the vinegar like acidic note is way to powerful.

dzudohonor (182) - POLAND - JUN 26, 2017
W aromacie nuty czerwonego wina, drewna, wiśni, kwaśne, smak: bardzo kwaśne, octowe wręcz, wiśnie, cierpkie, aż wykręca język, za bardzo przegięte w strone kwaśności jak dla mnie.

4.1
karpik (1228) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Cherries, funk, leather, vinegar in nose. Pours red with pink head. Taste is sour with lots of juicy cherries, funk, vinegar, nicely balanced especially for Hanssens lambics. Very tart finish, average to lively carbonation. Overall very good.
