jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Pours a very nice red. This beer starts out very sour but as you drink more the flavor just gets better and better. The cherry becomes more apparent. I kept going back for more and it was great with some chocolate brownies.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2007
A deep rose color with a huge, fluffy pink head. Very tart aroma of sour cherries, old leather, and must. Flavor of cherries, balsamic vinegar, oak. You can almost taste the age on this. Moderately acidic with a dry finish. Well balanced, outstanding.

chicagobears (460) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Pleasant looking cranberry red color with a carbonated pinkish head. Lambic farm aromas along with some vanilla and cherries. Has a strong oak complexity. Mildly tart yet very dry. The kriek is not nearly as noticeable as the color would indicate. The oak is dominant with some vanilla, lemons, grape skins and cherry pits. The vinegar/acidity is their but hardly overwhelming. However, if you enjoy the more acidic nature then pour the bottom of the bottle. The carbonation prickles throughout. This is an enjoyable and true to its style.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2007
Bottle. Red colour with a nice reddish foam. Very highly cobonated. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, oak, and sulphur. Flavour of sourness, acidity, and notes of cherry. Ends up dry.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Cotton-candy pink colored head, tall and frothy, quickly fading but not ever even close to fully diminishing. Lacing left behind is sporadic, wispy and webbed. The body is a deep, dark orange/red blend, with a jello like oiliness that seems to encapsulate it. The aroma is absolute farmhouse funk. Notes of hay, wet grass, mold, horseblanket, leather, wood, very sour rotting cherries, sprawling vegetation. I really prefer a stronger cherry presence in a Kriek, but the traditional and funk/farmhouse aromas in this are top grade, wildly spinning around in a sensory cloud. The nose finishes each outward spout with light waves of toasted grain and a hint of wheat malt. Despite sweet tendencies this aroma is continually pulling me back for long, repeated whiffs. Absolutely stunning how backwoodsy this is. The flavor is moderately tart, with heavier pockets that breach into blasts of puckering sourness then relent to sweet malts and sugars shortly thereafter. Cherries are much more noticveable, seemingly breaking free of vinegary and funky confines with each sip. This is thoroughly enjoyable, mainly because there is a backing sweetness that mellows the entire intensity and funk level and makes this feel awesomely balanced for the still large level of traditional notes swarming the tastebuds. Acidity is medium to medium-high, lemony at points and berry-infused at others. Tartness is medium-high, medium for the style. The finish is by far the most exciting component of this beer. Tangy cherries fade quickly, making way for barnyard complexities, only to resurface with a teeth-grinding acidity later on. The mouthfeel is soft, boisterously carbonated, like liquid velvet on the tongue and on its way down the throat. Overall this is well balanced, nearly without peer within the boundaries of the style. An awesome creation from a master of the trade.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Pours a lovely, slightly hazy glowing red with a light pink head. Really nice looking. The cherry aroma was there, but not a candy-like cherry aroma which was refreshing. I am also smelling what Im told is called barnyard. New experience with that word. The flavor was kind of like the smell, not huge candy cherry flavors, but more natural and authentic. Mild acidity, and big carbonation. I actually didnt like the aftertaste very much. Kind of like a rotting fruit flavor that didnt please me. Other than that, it was good.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
[Shared with Peter and Jens at the bnk.] A real lambic fruit of oude character. True sourness and grapenotes in the kriekflavor. Hardly highdrinkable caused by the massive sourness, but its the best at that. You can drink it for hours, because youll never find it too sweet!

Quality traditional kriek. Very tart initially, but steadily gets more earthy/cherrypit-y.

This stuff isnt for everybody. Its wild and uncontrolled, and you have to prepare to drink it. Cherries, fizz and wild, bracing notes of lambic.

Maybe Ive been greatly mislead, but what is this disaster? Was I spoiled by "artificially sweetened" lambics in recent tastings that I was fooled about what this style really delivers? Am I growing a pair of D cup breasts or what? Cant say that I enjoyed this in any way.. Ended up as a drain pour.
