dinkle50 (1447) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Deep red, cherry colored pour with a single finger pink head. Aroma has some cherry notes and hints of funk. Lots of carbonation. Taste is full of cherry, tart, but not insanely so. Very lively carbonation to the point where the mouth stings a bit. Finishes sweet, not too acidic. No lace present.

minutemat (5136) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
375ml bottle @ Chez Sophie. Pours a deep blood red, with large pinkish white head. Aroma is thorny, woody with mild breezy cherries. Taste is quite spritzy, lightly tart, woody, with excessively drying finish that produces some unwanted metallic notes. Lacks deep cherry flavours, indeed very thin and light in that regard. Not the best Oude Kriek in Belgium it has to be said.

AdmiralVernon (1140) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2017
A: Deep red/purple coloured with a thick pinkish head N: Funk, sweet cherries, tart cherries, almond, dusty cellar T: Cherry! Hint of marzipan. Funky cellar. O: I really like this beer! Very well balanced tartness, fruityness and funk.

BrewWhatIWant (144) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
Pours hazy bright cherry red with a pink short lived head. Aroma is musty with cherries. Taste is very tart with notes of lemon, cherry, sumac, woody tannins, leather, and barnyard. Body is light to medium with lots of carbonation. I prefer less acidic, more fruit forward versions such as mort subite.

TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
V sour, brett-y. Nose also dusty/leather-y, yeasty; almost like cranberry juice with cinnamon! Bordeaux-like cherry nose continues into wine-like, tart mouth. Long wavering finish is like an echo chamber of watermelons, and leaves your tongue humming.

tmzl (310) - SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2017
Cherries dominate, almonds, low funk, goes to ripe/rotten melons, medium malic/lactic sourness, highly drinkable, fresh and dry.

lefossoyeur (612) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Pours a pristine scarlet purple with a big dark pink head that lasts for a good while. Cherry pits with hints of funk, very clean nose. Lively attack, bright cherry note, just a touch of sweetness to balance the acidity that is pretty gentle. Finish is tart cherries with an almost metallic note. That drinks so easily. Doesnt reach intense complexity but I enjoyed it so much.

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle. BBE date May 2026; Drank Mar 2009 - Cherry Red in colour. Poured crystal clear; but with a grainy sediment. Very effervescent. Very cherry-fruity, zingy, tangy, lots of tart cherries. Acidic, mildly sour. Earthy, yeasty, funky. Oaky, woody, leathery. Very dry finish. Liked it. Nice lambic fruit! (2009-03)

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Cloudy red; woody, big brett, leather. Very tart. Fruity - wonderfully balanced. I thought Id successfully conceptualized the oude gueuzes and krieks of this world, but its all moot anyway because theyre all great.
