swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle at blue monk. Pours a beautiful red but extremely flat. Lots of sour tart cherries. Milder funk and tartness, nice sour cherry flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Nice but takes a back seat to the Oude

MacBoost (1871) - Victor, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from some store in Iowa. Pours a flat looking murky reddish pink with no head. Aromas of cherry pie, oak and a whole clobbering of funk. Taste is moderatly sour. Some funk detected in the mouth, medium acidity but not as good as I was hoping. Still, its pretty good. the regular kriek blows this away, as does 3 fonteinens version of the Schaerbeek lambic.

Dark red colour, almost no foam or carbonation. Very complex lambic. Fruity aroma of sour cherries, vinegar, and marzipan.

77ships (9359) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
Sampled as Schaerbeekse kriekenlambic which I got confirmed is the same as this one. Bottled pure, no lambic added when bottling in order to carbonate because this would destroy the fruity flavours which explains the other Hanssens bottled fruit beers. Pours an incredible, deep ruby red with no head. Nose is intense pure, real kriek, like holding a plate in your hands, lots of pits as well, light herbs, nicely natural fruit tart, amazing. Taste Is utterly incredible, pure kriek, taste, light Christmas herbs, lots of red wine & oodles of pits, red wine and strong tartness follow in the finish, quite sour and tart and nice added smidgon of acid. Completely flat, absolutely incredible this should be sold in Belgium.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy red color with zero head no matter how much swirling I did. The aroma is mildly tart, cherries, wood, with some vinous character. The flavor is really missing the carbonation. Cherry, wood, tart, easy to drink. The flavor is decent, but would be better with carbonation. At this price it should be better. Had another bottle recently and the carbonation was better.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Sean and Janine. Pours opaque maroon-brown with no head and no lace. Aroma of musty ripe tart cherry, musty dry red wine, sour lemon, and ripe raspberry. Taste is lemon, raspberry, and hearty cherries. Palate is loose and thin until the sticky, tart, dank finish. Very good and very sour.

Martinus (4591) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2013
Ruby red colour, slight pinkish white head. Aroma of cherry, cherry pips, marzipan, red fruits, pediococcus and barn. Sour flavour, light sweet touch, marzipan and cherry pips. Very light carbonation. Finish cherry, fruits and yeast.
(From 37.5cL bottle @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. No label. On the beer menu as Hanssens Experimental Schaarbeekse Krieken Lambic)

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2013
375ml bottle. Aroma of cherries and tart. Very tart taste, cherry but almost medicinally. Smooth without very much weird off flavors. Quite good but lacking some carbonation and depth.
