UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Bottles shared with Axilla. This rating is based on the Oud Beersel with the oval label. We also tried the Oud Beersel Kriek with a newer looking label, but it was not nearly as good. This one was just way too sweet and didn’t bring the funk. The one with the oval label poured deep red with a thin pinkish head. The pour contained some yeast chunks, or possibly some cherry bits. Aroma was very yeasty, barnyard, funk; love at first sniff. Taste was very tart with a nice underlying cherry tone. Body was nice, with a semi dry finish. Outstanding. AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - DEC 30, 2007
Mmmm. I lovre that sour, barnyard aroma. Some serious funk in there, but with a great sour cherry backbone. Really dry, and a bit light in the mouthfeel, but with champane like effervescence. Not as good as Boon Kriek. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2007
0.375 l bottle. Hazy deep red color with pink long lasting head. Sweetish, acidic, cherryish and candyish aroma. Acidic and strongly cherryish flavor with notes of candy, strawberry and grapefruit. Strong carbonation. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2007
A nice lambic, but it strikes me as being somewhat overrated, based on my tasting. Flavor was a little too thin, and the nose a bit too funky to earn top marks. Appearance was nice, though. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle. Best before 2022. Thanks to Santa. Poured a medium red/orange body with no head. aroma is horseblanket, light fruit. The sourness and funk were really alive but had such a short sensation on my palate. Light cherry taste. I need to try this one again.

Pours a bright red with pink head. Strong tart cherries. Hints of bread and funk. Dominated by sweet cherries and some oak. Still a little to sweet for my taste. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2007
crisp dark red color with pink head. Sweet cherry aroma. Tart body with sweet light cherry flavor. joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - DEC 12, 2007
ruby with a light pink head. sour acidic aroma with a wine-like fruitiness and underlying mustiness. smooth and spritzy mouth feel. sour tart cherries and grapes with a light wet woodiness to it. very well made, finally a kriek thats not overly sweet nahthan (129) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Pleasant red color with a super carbonated head that dissipates quickly. Normally I would shy away from kriek, as it’s usually too sweet for me, but this one is awesome. The second fermentation of the sugars provided by the fruit and the aging makes this a much drier fruit lambic than most. Aroma is wet horse blanket barnyard. Medium to high Acidity, moderate sourness. Best fruit lambic I’ve tasted. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2007
