Bottle. Very dark mahogany/red with small pinkish head. Very sweet fruits with cherry ofcourse but also ripe apples, strawberry and black berries. Nice spices, sweets and cherry jam. Some yoghurt and cream, and a light herbal finish. Very sweet with medium to full body. Decent enough, though very sweet.

Mit McTapps geteilt. Kein Klassiker, aber klassisch im Sinne von einem netten und gezuckerten Kirschbier, das angenehm Steinobst, vor allem Kirschen, zum Besten gibt und dabei mildsuess daherkommt. Gut ueberm Schnitt. Daumen also hoch.

McTapps (4468) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2014
The beer pours out in a hazy brown-ruby colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of acid, nuts and sour cherries. Taste of mild fruit vinegar, barley, nuts, sour cherries, acid amd light malt. Sour and fruity finish. Nice beer to enjoy.

bursprak (721) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Sample at Voldby Řlmesse 2014. Dark red pour with a frothy head. Nose and taste has loads of cherry, vanilla and almonds. Again a tad too sweet.

Murky pink. Aroma is medicinal cherry. Taste is dr pepper cherry with sherbert. Tangy finish. Overall, not a great kriek but definitely drinkable.

Zeer lekker kriekbiertje. Enorm sterke smaak van krieken en gelukkig meer zoet dan bitter

W aromacie głównie słodycz od wiśni. W smaku również, kwasek leciutki i ledwie zarysowany. Nazbyt przypominało dla mnie kompot. Pijalne, bo kompot jest pijalny.
