UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 pink on pink, and that’s a big ass pink on top..BIG..huge..the aroma was so berry, so berry berry good..flavor was full of tartness and leather..more tartness, some cherries..some more cherries sandwiched by lambic tart glory..oh that head of pink grows i swear and turns even creamier as the tartness pinches your stomach and takes over your brain...I hear these guys are done brewing..why god, why? this is by far the best Kriek on the planet estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Sort of pinkish orange body, medium head, gueze-like nose. I don’t smell cherries. Cherries don’t really come through all that much in the flavor, perhaps because it is very sour, not sweet like a Lindemans. Some cherry in the finish. Extremely tart and crisp, and very drinkable. RERATE 2/08: A lot of brett, more tart cherry character than my previous description allows. Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2002
Golden red with a big head. Cherry and sour aroma. Very carbonated with a rather sour taste. Bitter, mild cherry flavour. too carbonated for me but if you wait a while before drinking it is a nice kriek. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Get the toms out of the medicine cabinet .-) Sour, acidic cherry aroma. Wonderful red body with hints of orange completed by a big purple head. Very sour aroma, citrus,cherry of course but refreshing.
RERATE End 80's bottle: Earth mold nose. Pine and cherry. Nice brown red orange color. Light acidic in the beginning, cherry sour pine in the middle and a great dry chalky finish. RAUCHFEST (122) - PROSPECT PARK, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2002

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 One of the best kriek lambics out there, very dry sourness, but theres enough cherry flavour in there to keep you interested, very earthy aroma and flavour, a classic. This has more length and juicy acidity than most, really good! Xingu99 (2) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2002 does not count
Deep cherry-red color with the signature lambic aroma, assertively tart and sour finish. Very little of the fruit comes out at all, no sweetness to speak of. A complex beer that I would not recommend to those unfamiliar with this style omhper (26043) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2002
Clear red. Nice fruity aroma. Acidic, tart. Complex and fresh. Good, but not as good as their gueuze. pivo (2689) - GERMANY - APR 15, 2002
Smells like fresh cut green apples. A lovely rouge color.
Holy cow is this sour and tart! Fruity, but cherries don't
come through as such. Kinda cider-like at times, too.
There is a distinct dry finish on the back roof of the
mouth - kinda like a Smartie disolving in your mouth.
Very carbonated and fizzy. Complex for sure and difficult.
Makes most other Lambic knock-offs look like Kool-Aid sold
on the sidewalk in the summer by youths. This stuff grows
on you by the end of the glass. Go out of your way to
acquire this. jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 <b>Bottle&#64;Home, Dec 08, 4.2</b>: Cherry, cherry pits and marzipan aroma. Hazy, deep red, pinkish head, good lace. Sweetish, cherry, bitter, sour, ligh woody. Quite full. Beautiful balanced, quality brew. <b>Bottled, 3.8, original Oud Beersel</b>: Aged couple of years. Mainly cherry aroma with oak and hints of vinegar. Clear, red color, firm pink head, fair lace. Almost no sweetness left but also no maltiness, pretty sour but not harsh, oak, some vinegar, cherry but not overwhelming. It has what it needs but doesn’t stand out like Girardin or Cantillon.
