SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Lovely horse blanket hints, but more like a lazy horse rather than a heavily worked horse. Smells like the horse is carrying large sacks of cherries. A ruby red color with a pale pink head, this hints at what it is without being obvious, not overtly pink or red. This beer has a wonderful way of bringing out the sourness of a lambic, but throwing in dashes of pine needles and warm fruit, one of a kind.

Цвет очень богатый. Темно бордовый с тонкой розовой пенкой. Аромат кислый, отдает брожкой. Вкус очень разочаровывает, он слишком кислый с противным квашенным послевкусием. При этом чувствуется классический оттенок вишни от ламбика. В итоге что то от кислого Эля, что то от ламбика, но никакой гармонии в этом я не нашел. К сожалению. Очень странный напиток.

Juks (1202) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2018
375ml bottle, thanks Rask0lnikov. Pours slightly hazy ruby red, small pinkish head. Aroma of sweet cherry, woody barrel, jam, sweetness. Taste follows to nose at first, jammy, cherry marmalade. Cherry stone, skins, some brett. Sourness, tannins in aftertaste, juicy finish. Very well balanced. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Well balanced between sourness, sweetness and fruitiness, super easy to drink kriek, I like it!

beskid (419) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2018
Bottle. Hazy red with pink lasting head. Aroma is cherries, dried grass, wood. Not very sour, rather balanced, creamy texture. Cherry skins and sour cherries body. Very nice.

ClearHead (57) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle bought 12/2017. BB 2035 if I can decipher it correctly. Couldn’t wait that long. Deep ruby red, slight pink head. Makes a nice sound pouring. (Should we not have ”audio” in addition to ”aroma”, ”taste” etc?) Aroma sour cherry, sweet. Taste starts sweet, cherry, ends sour. A good balance. Medium bodied. Good, refreshing. But so is fruit juice. I am glad to have bought this, but will not repeat the exercise soon. Just not my cup of beer.

Noform (127) - Tarnowskie Góry, POLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Świetny kolor, zapach średnio intensywny ale zdecydowanie wiśniowy + sporo migdałów. W smaku delikatnie kwaskowe tylko i dość mocno cierpkie. Dobry lambik a za tą cenę to już w ogóle, przypomina nawet ciut LPK swoim migdałem jednak no LPK jest znacznie bogatsze nie ma co

kustie (1383) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2017
Bottle. Reddish color with minimal head. Aroma has fruits, malt, . Taste is fruity with long a bit dry and sour aftertaste. Flavors of malt, cherries, fruits.

rumore (870) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 30, 2017
37.5cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours dark plum with medium-high pink foam, fine, slightly irregular. Aroma is cherries and sour, some balsamic. Body is slightly light with low carbonation. Taste is intensely sour, a little salty, low sweetness. Finish is long and sour.

beerwego (2) - - NOV 21, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 Sour cherry and raspberry, sharp and carbonated on the tongue, semi cloudy, fairly short and flat on the taste front. Overall disappointed as I like a rounder, fuller flavour in a kriek, but drinkable and enjoyable. The nose is preferable to me, with an aroma reminiscent of a time gone by - sorry I can’t put my finger on it! No, wait - its Cremola foam!

Bierridder_S (1153) - BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 14/11/2017 - 37,5cl bottle @BarBik, Brussels. Red colour with pink fading head. Nose is cherry, bit wood, sour. Taste is cherry, some wood, dry, sour. High carbonation.
