12.7 ml bottle from jammalamma. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor are tart cherries, additional fruit character, wood, some light funk. I thought everything was there, just looking for a bit more pop.

Bottle via some Cates @ DSM LOL 1st edition 06/13/13



Pours a bright orang with a small wispy lil head.

The aroma is tart cherry, generally pretty fruity with some orange rind and some barnyardy funk. The beer has sort of a woody character, even thought it seems as though it was not aged in woooooooood.

The flavor is nicely sour, very tart, and full of tart cherry flavor. Itís earthy, never crosses over into vinegary sourness and has some nice almost musty character to it.

Thanks Lenin.

Bottle. Pours orange/amber with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet, cherry, and just the right amount of funk. A little fizzy, cherry, medium tart, with some woody funk. Real good.

brokensail (11821) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle very generously shared by Gene. Thanks! Cork came out like it was shot out of a gun. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of cherry, lemon, grass, and oak. Slight malt sweetness, some must, and a hint of funk. The flavor is quite fruit forward. Good cherry flavor, some sweet malt, oak, and vanilla. Grass, lemon, and a moderate tartness. A hint of vinegar, minimal funk, and a dry finish.

nuplastikk (4741) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
375ml corked bottle shared by Madvike. Hazy/murky orange-red. Big off-white head, lasts. Mineral cherry pit aroma. Delicate malt background, pleasant cherry flavor, light sour edge very well incorporated. Really natural taste, quite delicious and clean. Tasty, well executed, a medium bodied Kriek that avoids being cloying.

Purchased at the Allagash brewery in Portland, ME; enjoyed at my hotel room after an awesome Acadia hiking day in Bar Harbor, ME. Bottled November 2011. Appearance is a very cloudy dark gold with a light red hue, very bubbly carbonation that quickly dissipates like soda. Aroma of light cherries, light funk, in all honesty not much else. Taste is good but not very sour. Has a high bubbly carbonation, goes down like seltzer water, very light cherry flavor. Itís not a bad brew, just not high on my radar of other Allagash brews that Iíve had.
