Excellent. Cherry that is well balanced at the end. Still fan of lambics with a the sour punch at the end, but the oaky/muted finish is growing on me with this one.This is smooth and soft with nice subtle flavors. Good for those who arent big beer drinkers.

jsporrer (807) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a clear cranberry color with a thin pinkish ring. Sour, tart fruity aroma. Fairly thin texture and light body. Crisp tart cherry flavor with a lightly dry finish. Not as good as the other Verhaeghe cherry flavored ales but still tasty and pretty enjoyable.

brnandersen (3385) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2016
25 cl bottle. Slightly hazy red-amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Fruity aroma with cherries, caramel malts, oak and wheat malts. Taste is lightly sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly tart with cherries. Lovely Oud Bruin.

skmikeg (1816) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Pours reddish dark brown with a one finger off white head with good lacing. Aroma is of sour cherries,oak, vinager, funk, wet hay, over ripe sour fruits, sweet malts, and some citrus. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, a pretty tasty kreik.

FinnIckler (143) - GERMANY - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from saveure. Poors clear red with no head. Nose is oak, cherries. Heavy carbonation with cuts into the taste a little bit. Palate is cherries, but overshadowed by woody, oaky notes. Finish is short and woody. This is pretty good, but the carbonation is too heavy and overpowering for my taste.

Holmen1 (5120) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
0,25 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme: vakker dyp rdfarge, som portvin. Opp gjennom det tette lyserde skummet stiger en herlig aroma av kirsebr, mandler/mandelessens, vanilje og kirsebrsyltety. Smaken er lekker og avrundet, kanskje litt i steste laget (men jeg hadde gjerne tatt en flaske til). Snopel!

mrjez (521) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2016
250ml bottle from Liquor Mountain. Pours a deep clear red, nice white lacing. Big sour cherry aroma, vinegary notes with wood. Lovely approachable sour cherry flavour, with a second half that bends into a more malt and oak showing, albeit subtle. Lovely fizz and good restrained sourness. Surprised this is 7%, much more easy to down in large amounts than say, Duchesse.

I liked this one although it is not a lambic kriek. It would benefit from a bit more tartness,

Bottle. Clear, deep red, but with no head. Lovely cherry aroma. Sour, but well balanced with the fruit. Satisfying but not hugely complex, but still several layers to it.
