3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled called Hidden Barrel Collection Kriek Head gone in secs, orange-pink beer, lifeless. Sourish red fruit, krieken, but also redcurrant. Very sour, puckingly tart red fruit - unripe raspberries, Iíd said given blind. Lemony, citric acid. Acidburn, light body, overattenuated. Too sour, definitely - depthless.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a mostly clear pale red with a very small off-white head. Aroma of fruit, wood, and barnyard. Taste is tart cherries, barnyard, spice, and wood. Pretty good.

Murky red hues. Sharp vinegar nose. Nice fruity ness with some balsamic but a clean finish. I like this a lot very cherry balanced with nice berliner mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at tasting. Thick yeasty pink body. Nail polish acetone sourness. Unrefined, Iím not impressed at all. Still quite tasty in some respects, the cherries sort of shine in a pink raspberry sort of way. Acid brutality.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-pink pour with a white head. The aroma has some very strong cherry notes as well as some funk. Smells old and dusty. The flavor is full of cherry and funk with a light cheese character that I am really digging. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pink ruby pour with tan head. Smells like a true cherry sour kriek. Flavors donít live up to cherry aromas, not as nice or full.
