artmcd8 (1544) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to lithy. Pours a dark reddish purple like red wine. Aroma of big cherry, farmhouse, wet hay. The taste is tart and sweet. The aftertaste is like ludens chatty cough drops. Big cherry syrup here. Thick mouthfeel.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle, thanks David for sharing. This was really yummy. Pours deep bloody, red wine red with a thin off white/pinkish lace. Nose is intense as the name suggests. Lots of deep sour cherry, light vinegar, oak. Flavor is similar-lots of tart cherry, vinegar, light vanilla, oak. Really yummy kriek.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle, bought @De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours deep, well intense, red with a small, fizzy, pink head. Stays as a thin film. Aroma has lots of cherry, tart, light marzipan, red apple zest. Low carbonation, tart and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has tartish, a lot of cherry, mild sweet marzipan, light vinegar. Exquisite balance.

Dr_Fellini (371) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep reddish rose color with a thin light pink head. Aroma is dry, tart, light cherry. Flavor is intensely sour, just as the name says. Cherry syrup. Oily body with a lingering cherry tartness. Quite delicious.

aleigator (181) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Ruby red color, with a small, fizzy head. Fantastic aromas of ripe cherries, wine, along with a slightly funky impression. Has a lively carbonation, bready soft malts, which interact well with the huge, but gentle cherry fruitiness. At no point does the sourness of this beer roll over the fruity cherry impression, which comes along with red vinous grapes and a subtle oak defined maltiness. Bretts stay in the background of the composition, they only support the cherries with an enjoyable tartness in the end, accompanying the fermented fruits. Oakiness goes incredibly well with the bursting cherries print, exposing their full-bodied, smooth fruitiness. Wine and oak define the body of this beer, leading to a never before experienced, well balanced, superior cherry fruitiness.

bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Wonderful cherries. I could smell it a meter away. Ripe cherries, on verge of sour, nice balance. Did not like the thick syrup palate. But everything else was excellent.
