A-Pours a dark, sticky-looking crimson. Head doesn't last long but while it was around it was pink in color.

S-The aroma has some high points but I can also tell it's going to be pretty sweet as well. A hint of tartness and even some cellary funk. Lots of cherry; both natural and artificial smelling.

T-Starts off a bit tart which is nice. Also has some funk. It's going well until the sweetness comes into play. It devolves into an artificially sweet, cherry cough syrup finish.

M-Feels sugary. Flavor lingers. No alcohol. Cloying. Would not want a whole bottle of this.

O-The nose was okay and the flavor started off nicely but it quickly changes into something too sweet and artificial.

From 01/14/12 notes. Shared by ygtbsm94; thanks Brad! 2007 vintage.

a - Pours a deep ruby red color with one finger of off white head and moderate to high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sour cherries, vinegar, funk, oak, spices, yeast, and fruity malts. Nice and sour, and a ton of cherries.

t - Tastes of very sour cherries and tart dark fruits, more funk than the nose, vinegar, earthy notes, spices, Belgian yeast, fruity malts, and oak. Awesome taste.

m - Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Crisp, and easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was an awesome kriek. We drank this right before the Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse kriek and I thought this went toe to toe with it. Tons of tart cherries, especially in the taste, I'd love to have this one again.

Thanks to Brad for sharing this bottle. Served in a Dark Lord mini snifter.

Pours a nice deep red color with a thin white head and some light lacing. The nose carries a good dosing of cherries and some light funk. Mild lactic character there as well. Flavor is cherries and lactic acid. Good combination, but lacking in real depth. Crisp carbonation and a nice fruity finish. Dry. Pretty good, but not in the top echelon.

Thank you, Nathan.

Clear cherry red with a thin, off-white head that falls off to a ring, this looks decent. The nose is rather yeasty and fruity with a chunky cherry character, mildly cherry pie-like without any real spice. Not much funk, if any, really, the lambic base isn't particularly strong here. The palate is fruity, chewy, mildly leathery, mildly salty with no real funk. Decent, this beer is moderately carbonated and quite drinkable.

Bottle received as an extra in a trade with a generous RB guy.

Appearnace: Pours a fairly clear medicinal ludens cough drop red with a small pinkish crown that displays moderate retention and medium lace.

Smell: Very nice medley of cherries, lemon from the brett, horseblanket, potting soil, and cobwebs.

Taste: Same as the nose but the lemon from the brett takes center stage overshadowing the supporting actors.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp without seeming over carbonated.

Overall: Better than I expected but I can tell this bottle came from a cellar and has some age on it which is heightening the brett / lemon character.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Light ruby red body. Thinish pink head. Just a few wisps of lacing left behind.

S: Bright, sweet cherries. A touch of tartness. A tad artificial, but not exactly over the top medicinal.

T: Artificially sweet cherries are pretty much the only flavor going on here. Nothing in terms of farmhouse or musty notes. Again, its not too medicinal despite the artificial sweetness.

M: Smooth with a light tingly carbonation. The artificial sweetness is just a tad cloying but does not significantly impair the feel.

D: Not the worst lambic, but I just can't see myself seeking out krieks in this style. That said, I'm sure its suitable for some palates and it is a better alternative to the Boon Kriek.
