Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2014
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.

Grzesiek79 (3114) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 25, 2014
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.

12.7 oz bottle pours a dark ruby red with a thin spotty pink purple head. Aroma is musky, mild funk, tart cherries, very nice mellow oak. Taste really nails a unique sweet tartness if the cherries I haven’t seen in a kriek before, cherries present tart and sour but with a sweet fruit juice presence. Lacto and oak also help to round out a nice balance. Awesome, I’ll be picking up more of this next time I see it!

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
375 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a snifter. Pours intense red wine with a small pink head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has huge notes of cherry and flowers, along with dust, subtle earth and dust. The flavour is balanced, mildly tart and moderately sweet, with a load of cherries. The finish is medium in length and soft with more cherries. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky smooth texture. Overall, this is a very nice kriek. Full of cherries but also delicate. 2014-03-08

NeuroPliny (141) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Pours from a 375 mL bottle. Dark red-purple with a quickly fading pink head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sour cherry, dark berry, vinegar, port, with a crisp sour ascerbic finish. I love it.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Celebratory bottle into a Drie Fonteinen wine glass the night the Blackhawks won the cup. Pours a vivid blood red-purple. Nose is strong cherry with heavy skins and a bit of pit. Mild acidity with a nice earthiness alongside plenty of cherry skin and fruit. A bit heavy on the fruit compared to the base lambic, but still quite nice.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Cork opened with the most minimal pop. Pours purple with a nice small pink head. The aroma has lush cherries, cream, some tartness, citric bite, hints of vinegar and it all has a very clean pureness to it. Medium crisp body with very restrained carbonation (low pop indicated this). It starts out with a very citric bite (on lemony side), bugginess, some tart cherry (not as overt as aroma predicted) and a bit more malt presence than expected. The finish is short and sharp with the tart cherry aspect coming out more and some phenolic spice. Very solid.

NeoHippie2 (909) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Dark ruby red pour with no head just a light rose hued collar around the edge of the glass. Aroma is all about the sour cherries with notes of wine. Flavor is very similar, so delicious. Wonderfully tart but not over the top sour with lots of cherry. Perfectly balanced between the fruit and sour characteristics. This one definitely deserves all the praise that it gets. Amazing brew.
