kaserov (291) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 6, 2016
Color granate oscuro, turbio, con capa de espuma rosada de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación no muy presente. Aroma ácido, como a sidra (a medida que la birra se va bebiendo me llegó a recordar incluso al olor de algún vino tinto). El sabor es predominantemente ácido (recuerda a champán), con buena presencia de las guindas (cómo no, si usan 400 gr. de guindas por kg...); hay un mínimo toque dulce que equilibra esa acidez (no es tan agria como otras Lambic, ni tanto como alguna Sour Ale). Tiene cuerpo pero no es tan espesa como una Lindemans, por dar un ejemplo, y se bebe apreciando que el proceso de esta Lambic es más natural. Una delicia. Me encantaría repetir, pero va a ser difícil.

Beautiful dark red body with pink head which dies pretty quick. Aroma of red wine, some cherries, little bit tart. Taste is champagne, red wine and cherry, sweet-ish and sour notes, watery, lively pinching carbonation. Nice.

Jashiu (269) - 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 (419) - 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.
