This pours a dark red color with a slight, pink head. The aroma is strong with sweet cherries. The taste is unusual as it is very strong with a tart, dry taste rather than a sweet taste. The texture is smooth and thin, not as bold as I was expecting. Fairly decent but as far as cherry lambics go, there are better ones on the market.

Dark ruby red pour, pink head, cool man. Aroma, fantastic, barnyard funk, sour cherries, some slight sweetness. Taste, tart tart tart up front, very dry, crisp, mild sour finish, very nice a bit subdued but overall very well done.

Une robe rouge comme du vieux sang. Une tête qui n’en est pas une. Un nez largement fruité sur un fond de lambic. On dirait bien qu’il y a d’autres fruits que les cerises dans cette concoction. Des saveurs collées aux arômes. On dirait que les cerises noires sont mélangées à des framboises et des canneberges. Les notes aigrelettes manquent peut-être de vigueur ou de finesse. En bouche, le liquide fait son style. En finale, c’est aigre-doux, fruité et court.

Ale Alpharetta. Thanks for bringing this GTAEGeek. Pours bright red/pink with fizzy pink head. Its not as intense as the name suggests, but was very flavorful and lightly tart. The cherries were really the showcase, with medium tart punch, tad bit of funk. Light and lively on the palate. Nice.

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.
