Reddish pour with a big fluffy pink head. Funky barnyard aroma sour fruits leather earthy notes. Assertively carbonated light and airy. Quite sour hints of cherry skin leather earthy. Nice but has an off putting aftertaste. bluejacket74 (1992) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2012
12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a ruby red/purple color with about an inch pink head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The bottle was a bit of a gusher when I opened it. Aroma is sweet and tart cherries, oak, funk, and a bit of vinegar. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, but there’s also a bitter earthy flavor noticeable. Not too sour tasting, the bitter earthy flavor seemed to overpower the other flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. It’s not a bad beer and it’s worth trying once, but I wouldn’t spend $12.99 a bottle for this again. emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a soft and cloudy ruby pink with one finger of wispy light pink head. Nose is tart and acidic with an upfront geueze-y character. Sharp acidity and cherry notes come through with some lemon rind and hay. Lots of funk for sure. Sharp flavor and upfront acidity with a light astringency. Not much of the kriek carries through in flavor. Very dry and light, super sharp and acidic. bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle from the Folsom Whole Foods. Tried to gush! Pours a beautiful cherry red with a creamy pinkish head. Essentially sour cherry aroma. Med plus body. Flavor is sour, earthy, cherry. It’s very nicely done. Finishes tart and sour. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Pours a cloudy red/orange, with a thin head.
Fruity, spicy aroma, quite developed/aged, dried fruit, wood, dill, cherries, dried apricots.
Dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Spicy, acidic taste, cherries, dried fruit, funk. The bottle was not old, but the beer feels a bit past its prime? (2012-10-08)

Bottle sample @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep red with a medium pink head. The nose is sweet dehydrated cherry, some sugar and mild funky yeast. The taste is meaty cherry pit, soft vinegar and chalk. Lip-puckering but smooth. Overall, this is actually a fairly nice kriek. Respec’ thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle from my birthday. Pours a deep red with bright pink and frothy head. Aroma is slight funk, gueuze, hay. Taste is initially slightly sour/tart but quickly moves on to a metallic taste that is very off putting. Moves on to some slight tart cherry notes and then finishes with my of a sucking on pennys taste. Overall, not that nice. jaghana (6070) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle 37,5cl from fonefan thanks ! A cloudy amber red beer with medium pink head. Nose is typically a gueuse one with moister and brettanomices. Aroma is very dry, tart, wet wood, acid and sour background, cherry is there but not outstanding, kind of bitter almond, a good kriek even if fruits are a bit shy there. conway (2210) - - SEP 26, 2012
