Jashiu (1324) - Gdañsk, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
37,5cl bottle @Pulapka Gdansk

Aroma: cherries, red fruit, a distinctive lambic sourness. Also very nice funk - barnyard and horse banket, and a slight touch of vinegar.

Looks: hazy dark red with reddish head.

Taste: sour cherries are there but not dominating because the crisp sourness is what is playing the main part here. Very fruity with a short dry finish

Feel: rather thin body

Overall: A solid kriek! Love the fact that while very sour it is not dominated by cherry stone character.

nutjes (955) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2016
37,5cl-fles op "Koken met bier" bij de Waregemse BierFanaten. U: Zeer donkerood met een grote roze schuimkraag. G: "Funky"-toetsen, wat krieken en een metallische toets. S: Rood fruit, lactisch, "funky" en melkzuur. Droogbittere afdronk. Niet overtuigd van deze. M: Niet echt volmondig bier met stevige carbonatie.

Bottle at a brewery. Slightly empty, thin feeling compared to other krieks we have had here. Still good and tasty but lacking more complexity.

Mr_Pink_152 (5009) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle from Hopology, Nottingham. Red to purplish colour with a pink head. Aroma is only lightly cherry. Taste is sour with just a hint of a sweet finish, Spritzy.

CyborgX (109) - THAILAND - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle - pours deep red, with a short lived red head. Aroma of sour cherries. Definitely in the sour beer class. Taste is cherries, but the overpowering dominant flavour is sour sour sour. IMHO I love cherries, evennsour cherries, but there is ALWAYS a hint of sweetness in cherries, here there is none, and the beer suffers because of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 Aroma: Funky, horse blanket, wild cherry, little hint of almond. Appearance: Hazy dark red, really nice and long-lasting foam, nothing to complain. Taste: True Oude Gueuze starts here, lots of cherries, not much sweetness, very sour, still noticeable funky smell, finish kinda bitter and tart with warm feeling. Overall: really decent example of Oude Kriek, still not top-notch, but enjoyable

Hazy dark red liquid, small, pink head. Weak, sour aroma. Light body, little bit carbonation. Taste is sour and a bit sweet.

SarkyNorthener (4621) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle from wine seller, Compton. Dark garnet beer with small pinkish head that forms puddles on the surface. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is dark cherry and a little wood. Not as rich in the aroma as I was hoping. Taste is a little more muted than others of this style. Some dark cherries, light sourness, a little funk and a build up of tart cherry drops in the finish. This one is a beer that warms to you. Excellent.

stenogne (7) - - SEP 2, 2016 does not count
Fantastica!!! Maturata in botti con le ciliegie... 4 grammi di ciliegie al litro... un perfetto lambic equilibrato dalle Ciliegie.. ottima con dolci con crema pasticcera e frutta... anche con gli gnocchi di susini

Bottle. I don’t know what to think about this beer. Really love sour beer, like Rodenbach Grand Cru, really love kriek beer. But this one wasn’t what I expected : think of it as a sour bier, but with unsweetened kriek. I think I love it (even though I love both style separately)
