hardly any head. cherry pie aroma, it’s like opening a jar of conserved sweetened cherries and putting your nose in it. lovely. light sweetness, medium sourness, very subtle carbonation, almost flat, could be a bit more sprinkly for my liking. Very much enjoyed it. top kriek!

ctipping (1258) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
375 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/27/2013. Very deep red. Pink head. Thick collar. Jammy cherries. Really rich cherry aroma. Slightly sweet. A bit of acidity and a slight bit of funk. Otherwise not much lambic coming through. Still smells great though. Taste has tons of cherry. Covers up some of the sourness. Jammy cherry flavor overpowers. It tastes good despite being monotonous. Slightly lemony sourness comes through in the end. Minimal sourness. Fruity finish. Medium carbonation. It is an intense cherry flavor. Delicious cherry if nothing else.

Sigmund (6643) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2016
375 ml corked & caged green bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 5%. Like the name says: Intense and deep red colour, small pink head. Strong (but not intense) aroma of sour cherries and cherry kernels, hints of almonds and marzipan. Medium sour and tart flavour of sour cherries, not much sweetness. Good stuff.

MrBunn (2729) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby color with a bit of pink fizz on the surface. Aromas are amazing. Cherries and sourness... duh! The sour and funk is complex and perfectly balanced... a bit barnyard, a bit vinegar, a bit tart cherry, a bit citrus... Amazingly good beer.

scirtes (408) - POLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle, lotnummer 13-11-2012. Pours deep red, almost ruby, with small, pinkish, a bit unstable head. Strong aroma of sour cherries, combined with lambic notes. Taste is quite complex: sour, almost vinegar-like, subtly sweet, with lots of cherries, and tannic, a bit astringent aftertaste. A very good kriek!

ajax25g (75) - Washington DC, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Huge thanks to Travlr! Second time drinking this, first time rating. This is a class unto its own. Deep ruby red. So deeply red but also clear. Nuts. Aroma is a bit subdued but dusty. Med-full bodied and exploding with cherry flavor. Both ripe cherries but especially cherry preserves. Slight medicinal cherry flavor but doesn’t distract. This is an excellent beer.
