At Cantillon Brewery from bottle.

Raspberry red, very light hazy in appearance with a sizable foam head upon pour, which dissipates quickly. Smell is of raspberry, strawberry, cherry and other red fruits with a bit of oak. Taste follows the nose, but even through it's sour and fruity, it is not overly sweet (which is what a Cantillon employee told us is one of their goals). Light carbonation and easy to drink. I would definitely get this again and enjoy on a nice summer day.

Pours a translucent plum. It almost looks like cherry NyQuil. Light pink head that dissipates quickly. Not as much as aroma as the 3F Oude Kriek. Tastes like some red pepper and pickled red onion. Some super sharp parmesan and moderate acidity. A little nail polish too. Not my favorite kriek by any measure.
