Bottle at Kulminator. Pours a dark cherry with a slight frothy pink head. Aroma is rather kriek. Medium body with decent carbonation. Flavor is slightest funk with a firm sour/kriekness. Finishes nicely sour cherry. If it’s not a kriek (says the label) I am unsure what it is. It’s all kriek to me. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle, thanks Patrik! Muddy reddish-purple colour. Woody, funky nose with sweet cherry. The tartness and wood lends this one a certain freshness. Dry beer, even a bit thin. Moderately sharp lactic notes and a fresh cherry finish. It’s no oude kriek, but it’s a nice sour cherry. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle, thanks to oh6gdx (Patrik) for sharing. Pours a gorgeous opaque jewel tone bright ruby red. Excellent sour cherry lambicesque aroma oozing character, funky yet clean. The cherries are so intense in this rich, lovely aroma. I also smell some cedar/aromatic wood after that. The palate is smooth, very soft and the high carbonation does not seem fizzy at all. The flavors are more lactic than the aroma lets on. The cherry character here is fabulous, and in total harmony with the lactic acid and other sourness. Nice sweet malts too. This I can drink a lot of! oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Amber colour, small pinkish head. Aroma is sour and tart cherries along with some rather malty and sugary notes. Flavour is tart and dry cherries, some wood and mild breadyness. Also spices and yeast. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009

Awesome candy apple red colour with a thin pinkish head. Stunning fresh cherry aroma, green but excellent. Plenty of wood and bretty character too. A little on the tinny side in the mouth giving it a sucking a freshly cut finger type flavour. Impressively tart and lively, plenty of carbonation. We’re sat here on a glorious summer evening with the doors open out onto our terrace and this is fitting the moment just right. So so much cherry in this. The Kerasus comes through clear as day yet the awesome Struise sour madness underneath still has room to sing. Superb tarty lemon cherry finish with really good length. I know I like it but I feel I love the unblended originals a little more.
Bottle. Ruby red with a thin bubbly pink head. The aroma is watery and weak with notes of almonds, cherries and some cellar. Flavour is dry with notes of rubber, wood and fruity cherries. garthicus (2945) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2009
Shared by HogTownHarry with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Cherry red with a quickly diminishing pink head. Aroma: Blankboy: "Yes, yes, yes" and I agree! Cherry, sour, spice, lovely tartness, mouth watering. Flavour: Super spicy, cherry, tart as hell with a lovely pepper finish. Super! bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2009
(33cl bottle, BB March 2014) Pours a murky red body with a small pink head. Aroma of cherries, barnyard, light wood, and earthiness. Flavor of cherries, brett, and florals with a dry, subtle wood finish. Christian (13823) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Clear red with a small pink head. Weak cherry aroma with mineral and almond notes. Very dry, slightly tart sour cherry and wood flavour, with funky earth and brett notes. HogTownHarry (7066) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy and garthicus - via ... harrisoni? reakt? mesandsim?. Thick pour, murky reddish, decent creamy-frothy off-white head. Ahhhhhhh - that smells great - funky sour cherry, juicy malt underneath, day-um! Taste - pretty mild - nice cherry / light lemon funk balance, almost sweet. Average body, acidic, quick-finishing, leaves a tasty zingy lemon zest linger - a truly delightful light fruity sour - thanks, whoever!
