Bottle I took to watch football with Andy, Max, Pearl, Paul. Pours a deep ruby and garnet hued red with a thin pink head. A touch of cough drops, a bit funky and weird, sweet, with a bit of that weird fecal note that sometimes shows up. Still rather nice. Medium-bodied, a little herbal, lots of delicate earthy cherries. A bit of funkiness, chewy cherry skin tannins, very delicate, a bit more earthy funk. Lingering cherry, a bit more funk. Rather tasty.
On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has fresh cherries, cherry preserve juice and cherry pits. Taste is tart and juicy with lots of cherries complete with pits. Overall really balanced and tasty. Beese (3051) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2017

Pours a deep purple red from the bottle with bubbly red pink head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma of big deep cherry notes, jam like sweetness, musty funk, and a mild acidity. Taste is lemony acidic up front, quickly falls to huge cherry notes, then musty oak, funky farmhouse, and a dry, slightly sweet finish. Super complex, almost as good as some real Belgian lambic, which it is dangerously close to being. Sublirony (48) - SINGAPORE - JUL 20, 2017
Beautiful translucent cherry (!) color. Very small head that dissipates really quickly. Full-on wafts of cherry, wood, and the palate does not disappoint. Very fruity and most enjoyable. A lambic? Sure: this is good stuff, but I don’t think it gets to the very best krieks. That said, a great effort that I’ve enjoyed very much and will have again.

Tap at villains in Chicago. Drank just after the spontan sourcherry. Pours deep dark red. Nose is the fullest deepest cherries I have ever smelt. Palate is adding what the normal sourcherry one needed, intense cherry jam taste, some vanilla, a bit more sour. Amazing, I might make some people mad by saying this but this is as good as the cantillon kriekenlambic in my opinion. Scipio (1142) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
2015 bottle. Pours a deep red with a medium purple head. Different, looks awesome. Heavy cherry is the theme of a slightly sour aroma. This is supplemented by lesser oak, plum, and mild earthy malt. Mild tartness is found in the taste, and that is expected. Its very dry and acidic. Not all that sweet. Cherry flavor easily stands tall here, though I get a good deal of oak as well. This feels a lot like drinking an unusual wine. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, average carbonation. This is very tasty, but I’d probably only have one. Still, drinking this feels kind of special. I respect this beer. DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle. Deep red-purple with a creamy pink head. Luscious rich ripe cherry fruit with spicy and oaky notes, tremendous density of fruit and depth of complexity. I didn’t want this to end. javiercrasher (613) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2017
