shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle. Vinegar, sour milk. cherry, malt, barnyard, and hay aroma. Murky reddish-brown with small head. Moderately sour vinegar, very lightly sweet cherry, malt, and moderately bitter hay flavor. Nice body and balance.

Vintage ??? Daleko poza regionem Payottenland a jednak mega udane. Wspanaly aromat wisniowego babcinego, nieslodzonego kompotu. Poczatkowo. Poczatkowo trudno sie przegryzc przez spora dawke cierpkosci ale to tylko sprawialo mi ogromna radosc. Tak tradycyjny Lambick podalem w szkle Lindemansa do jakze tradycyjnego polskiego schabowego. Zamienilo posilek w arcy przyjemna chwile. Wyglad to mala piana opada szybko niczym windy w nowoczesnych biurowcach. Barwa bordowo fioletowa niemal brazowa. O przeswicie nie moze byc tu mowy, geste jak mus wisniowy. Taniny, mnostwo owocow ciemne dojrzale winogrona, pozeczki i ciemny agrest. Z zawiazanymi oczami powiedzialbym ze to wytrawne wino klasy Grand Cru. Ciesze sie z jakosci tego lambicka zwlaszcza po zawodzie wersji Fond Tradition Gueuze

Got this of all places at the little restaurant in the Modern Hotel in downtown Boise Idaho. From 330 ml bottle pours a clear light ruby with a pinkish head. Nose of tart cherry. Medium body. Flavor is a very tart cherry, and finishes the same. Not a lot to say here other than the fact it was good

Ah, takes me back to the street cafe in Brussels where I first had this back in my pre-beer-rating days. Still good stuff.

SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle. Unclear purple color with pink head. Aroma is cherries, a touch of wood and funk. Taste is dusty cellar and wood, with muted cherry skin flavours in there. Tart and somehow dry finish. High carbonation. The "fond" is noticeable, but it’s nonetheless not on par with the greater examples of Oude Kriek.

weihenweizen (4127) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2017
On tap at Bahnhof. Translucent red with ver small head. Aroma is tart cherry, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is rich tart cherry. Nice fruit lambic ready.

Nice, not special. Dried cherries and leather, good age flavors/aromas. Pleasant in the mouth. I will enjoy the second bottle, but probably not buy again.

Silvan7 (1269) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 27, 2017
Bottle @ home. Rossi Rubino, riflessi violacei, schiuma rosata grossolana di brevissima persistenza. Aroma abbastanza intenso, fruttato di ciliege, legno vaniglia, frutti di bosco, lampone polvere, cantina. Gusto acido, intenso, pungente, dolce zuccherino presente ma sovrastato dall acidit?. Poco nulla amara.poco corposa carbonatazione quasi nulla estremamente spigolosa ma equilibrata armonica, perfettamente in stile.

Ysok02 (1835) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2017
Robe rubis dense, fine mousse. Nez plus élégant sur des notes de griotte, de cerise acidulée sur un fond boisé et balsamique. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, de la tension, du fruit, une note boisée, et une belle finale équilibrée. De loin la meilleure des 3 et sans conteste la seul vraie kriek de la brasserie.

DutchDrebus (6197) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle @ home. The non-kriek Fond Tradition was my first geuze and hated it. Dark purple to red colour with no head. Smells cherry, red fruits, sour, dusty. Tastes quite sour, cherries, fruity, tart aftertaste, slightly minty. Nice. Medium body, medium carbo.
