"Well... Color as advertised, a beautiful intense ruby red. Immediate pungent aroma of bright tart cherries and an underlying stinky cheese. Flavor is more than adequately sour, very fruity and intense as well, with the cherry/funk balance done to near perfection. Dam smooth too, carbonation just right, and the abv (which happens to be 5.0) is irrelevant. This could have been 3% or 9% and the flavor would have made it so you didn’t even notice. Super friggin expensive, but a real treat. Up there with Cantillon Lou Pepe in the ranks of the best krieks."

Pours a deep Ruby color with a minimal rose colored head and low retention. Smells like a tart cherry cordial. Tastes of a moderately sweet dark cherry flavor with a lingering sourness.

Leighton (10967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London during the CBC 2nd birthday. Pours deep red-purple with a creamy pink head. The nose has dank grapes, funk, cherries, berries. Light to medium sweet flavor with ripe and funky fruits, cherry, some skin. Light to medium bodied with average+ carbonation. Lots of ripe, drying berries to finish, good assertive tartness. Great one.

Poured a deep red color with aromas of cherries, light funk, some oak, and more cherries. Flavors were cherry juice, not overly tart or sour, just enough, tasty and great, need to find more of this.

Pour is transparent blood red with almost no head, a touch of dark purple foam on top. Nose has lots of cherry up front with a moderate amount of funk. It’s gets a bit leathery after the traditional earthy mushroomy funk with a bit of rubber band. Taste is stronger cherry, pitted ripe dark red cherry. The funk is lighter, a touch earthy and some rubber band through the back. Fairly sour finish with a light body and strong carbonation.

Vignale (2057) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Flaska från Brill. Rödvinsfärgad vätska, lågt rosa skum som snart försvinner. Stor syrlig doft av moreller, geuze, lite hallon. Syrlig, frisk, stram, torr och massor av bär. lite annorlunda körsbärssmak än andra kriek, drar lite åt hallon, lätt kärnbeska i eftersmak med lätt touch av hallon. Riktigt god.

Thanks to jercraigs for this one. Deep ruby red pour. Rich garnet colour with a pink light head. The nose is loaded with cherry and rich earthy character. A lot of soft funky aromatics and a nice chewy leathery character. Has a great richness to it. Lovely brew.

2014-07-23. Dark red purple body with a small pink head. 3+ Strong cherry aroma, light funk. 7++ Flavour is quite fruity, mildly sour throughout but it grows as you go. Lightly lactic touches, with vinous notes in the finish and aftertaste. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice but not particularly complex compared to some of their other offerings. Bottle via trade with Duffman

375ml bottle pours a bright, neon lipstick red with some cloudy, pink head. Nose has bright berry, cherry and raspberry, some cinnamon stick too. Flavor is lightly tart, lightly sweet, bright cherry juice, some raisin too. Fairly balanced finish.
