375 mL bottle shared at Ale Alpharetta. Pours dark red, with a small, pink head. The aroma is a lot of cherries, but not in a medicinal way, with some lactose and wheat. Strong fructose sweetness, with a nice, funky sourness. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and syrupy. Overall, this is more fruit than lambic, but still an enjoyable and delicious beer.

A really awesome Kriek. The pour is a dark burgeoning red with a pink, foamed up head. The nose is tart and fruity with big juicy cherries and a light sour acetic note. A bit sweet in the middle with tons of juicy fruit notes and a light candied flavour. The finish is tart and acidic but not as sour as I thought after the nose. A good brew with tons of cherry flavour.

Bottle @ Ale&Hop. Very dry and intense cherry aroma and taste. Very good but not so very drinkable anymore as less intense ones.

Pours a deep red with very few bubbles. Aroma is cherries, moderately sour, lemony and a light wood touch. Flavour is tart fruity notes, sour cherry, lemony, mild brettanomyces , wood, and a fairly dry finish.

Bottle from somewhere...can’t remember how I acquired. Pours a deep reddish purple with a small purple head. Head was gone in about 20 seconds. A serious tart cherry nose with a red wine-like base. Notes of citrus and flowers. The taste is less complex actually, which was surprising. Not quite as tart as expected either. Certainly a semi tart cherry with notes of other tart fruits. A red wine taste with less tannins. Mostly a dry, semi-sweet finish. No carbonation. Very light body. Overall rather mediocre for this brewery.

This one poured a bright red color with a nice pink head, definitely a cherry beer. Aroma was of lots of sour cherries, light lemon, some hay and seed pits. Flavor was not nearly as sour as the nose suggested it would be, nice mildly tart cherries, more on the wild side than an actually sour, but great cherry presence and very refreshing.

Bottle , pours purple/red with no head. Aroma is funk and sour cherries , very nice aroma, cherry lollipop. Taste is semi tart cherry, a bit sweet then tart again, funk, dry puckery finish. Does a great job of being intense with it flavor and also clean and delicate. Good stuff.

Super intensywnie czerwone, a wlasciwie bordowe piwo. Z srednia ale rozowa piana. Przepieknie pacznace swierzymi wisniami. A w smaku poezja owocowosci. Powalajaca dominacja wisni. Sok syrop z tych owocow dominuje. W smaku tak jakby zerwac swierza wisnie z drzewa. Pod koniec piwo jest metne naturalne i coraz bardziej wytrawne. Leciutko tylko cierpkie. Posmak na koncu jakby przegryzc pestke. Super alternatywa dla luksusowych win. Wspaniale do wolowiny. Polecam

12.7 oz bottle poured into shaker. Clear red to purple with no head or lacing. Aroma is tart cherries, cherry cough syrup, sour cherry, breadcrumb malt, and some oak. Taste is moderately sour with lactic acidity under cherry skin flavors, lightly sweet cherry juice, and if you focus there’s a little wood and leather bitterness; the medicinal flavor is prominent, which I find unfortunate. Light to medium body, sticky texture, low carbonation, and a lip-puckering dry finish.
