Love me some lambics. Thanks bmillsy. Pours like a pretty imperial ipa. Beautiful orange pour. Thin head. Menthol, minty, marmalade Aroma. Light sour, super carbonated.

pgliszczu (102) - - OCT 9, 2017
Wygląd: Bordowe, zmętnione, dość obfita, czerwona piana, która bardzo szybko znika
Aromat: Jest dzikość przede wszystkim, skóra, końska derka, te sprawy, no i na koniec dopiero wiśnia
Smak: Jest lekka słodycz, kwaśność na średnio wysokim poziomie. Poza tym znowu skóra i funk, potem silna wiśnia.
Odczucie: Wytrawnie raczej, bardzo wysoko wysycone, finisz długi, wiśniowo - dziki.
Podsumowanie: Solidne piwo, za (dość) przystępną ceną. Dzikość poszła raczej w skórę niż jakieś gnoje, czycoś, więc jest bardzo przyjemnie. Kwaśność, jest odświeżająca, a wiśnie wyraźne, niemalże jakby jeść sam miąższ.

Rotes Bier schöner schaum, im Geruch wunderbar kräftig Sauerkirschen holzig leicht Rotwein, auch im Geschmack ganz tolle Kirsche super wuchtige Säure leichte gereifte Rotwein Note, ganz tolles Bier!

DrNosha (2566) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2017
0,75l Flasche. Strahlen rote Farbe. Rosa flüchtiger Schaum. Schon lange keinen solchen intensiven Sauerkirsch Duft gehabt! Dazu Holzfass. Runder Duft. Dann kommt der Säure Schlag in die Magengrube. Klasse! Sauerkirsche, Holz . Wuchtig sauer. Total spannend.

(Bottle) hazy, bright red colour with a small pink head; aroma of sourness, leather; clean, sour flavour with a long, medium sour finish

Piepenhenrich (1170) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
A favorite. I love Kriek, just not the overly sweetish stuff. I love sour. This one delivers it all, real sour, strong fruity elements, some fermentation, a complex blend, top rank.

90 (726) - BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Bought at Delaize. Bottle information: 2014 Bottle number n° 029489 A lot of cherries in the nose, somehow artificial sweet and metallic aroma. Taste is sour, funk, cherries, a tad tart, oak. Taste has also a metallic component. Palate is slightly puckering.

Ysok02 (1763) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2017
Une très belle Kriek acidulée et tendue, au nez puissant et complexe alliant lambic, griotte et fût et une bouche tendue et longue. Il ne lui manque que la complexité pour être grandiose.

hohops (1065) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2017
Bottled 23 Dec 2015, 7%. Appearance- clear and ruby red, some fizz but no head at all. Aroma- tart fruit, raspberry, rhubarb, fruit crumble, grape juice, barnyard hints, cherries. Taste- sour, tart fruit, cherry skins, raspberries, sharp rhubarb hints, sugary fruit. Sour lingering finish.

Juks (937) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 15, 2017
750ml bottle, bottled 15. august, 2015. Pours hazy purpur, small pink head. Aroma is acidic, soursweet, cherry marmalade, cherry stone, dung, cherry compote. Taste of raw cherries, cherry stones, vinegar. Very acidic, kinda woody and tannin. Really acid finish, probably will lose some teeth. Medium bodied, average carbo. Well, that’s one good kriek, I’m wondering why they have to add so much sugar into their mainstream kriek.
