At de Krijmerie van Gaasbeek, Lennik. Shared with Anke. Paired with a custom ice coupe (coconut, chocolate, salted caramel).
Bottled: 9/12/2016. Pours clear dark red with a lasting, thin, pinkish head. The aroma contains wild sour cherries, yoghurt & lactic acid, yeast, hint of jam & leather. It tastes medium to heavy funky sour with notes of sour cherry and cherry pits, and only very light fruity sweet; tart, dry, acidic, finish. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. A great introduction to the style for anyone.

2016 bottle from Midtown shared at Proper Sake. Pours a clearish ruby with a finger of pink foam that dissipates into a rim around the edge of the glass. Lots of meaty, dark cherry aromas. Some prosciutto and mineral notes as it warms. Very enjoyable on the palate, with dark cherry, leather, mineral and earthy mustiness that comes out. Balanced without the sweetness in the regular Kriek from Lindemans. Dry finish with cherry stone and skin present.

Pretty good Cherry Lambic with Superdry. A lot of the qualities of the fruit disappear because of the dryness.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 Donkerrood met fijne parelende babyroze schuimkraag. Krieken, kersen, houttonen, eik. Licht wrange aanzet (acid) maar snel overvloeiend in rood fruit met een droogtrekkende afdronk. Oude kriek zoals die moet zijn. Mooi bier.

Velmi dobrý kyseláč! Ovocné aroma, barva rudá, zakalená, chuť silně kyselá s tóny třešní, tělo lehké, perlivost vyšší a jemná pěna. Spokojenost!

Kolor czerwony, praktycznie bez piany. W aromacie stajnia, skóra, dzikie drożdże, wiśnia. W smaku dosyć stonowana wiśnia, dzikość, wino, owoce. Bardzo dobre.

Rating #1000, thanks to everyone I have met throughout the last 2 years, especially Stefan and Moritz for introducing me into the wonderful world of craft beer after not really drinking beer for 21 years. 2014 Bottle at beermoth. Nose is cherry, Brett, raspberry, red currant. Palate is sour cherry, blackberry, pomgrenade. Very delicious! Could be more jammy Though.

kapusil (1616) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 10, 2018
0.75l bottle. Ruby red body with a pink head Aroma and taste of vinegar, lemon juice and zest, a bit mold, wood and sour cherry. I can't really recall a kriek I had where the fruits add to the complexity not mask it, but this is definitely one. Awesome.
