COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Kriekselikroksen er en mørk, stærk belgisk ale, let humlet ale brygget med pilsnermalt, karamelmalt og kandis-sirup. Efter endt gæring er den tilsat mælkesyrebakterier og langtidslagret på træfad (der tidligere har indeholdt dansk rødvin) sammen med gavmilde mængder syrlige stevnskirsebær. Den er vist nok den første af sin slags brygget på dansk grund? Resultatet er en let syrlig ale med noter af træ, marcipan, kirsebær, balsamico-eddike, kakao og vanille, med potente 11% alkohol.

English: Belgian Strong ale finished with lactic acid bacteriae and matured on Danish red wine casks with sour cherries.

Bottle. Pour darkish red with minimal head. A beautiful sour aroma with dominated with the aroma of tart cherries. Nice sour/tart taste though it seems to be missing something. Deffinelty would not guess this is a 11% ABV. Overall the beer is enjoyable.

Bottle. Frothy white fair fully deminishing head. Cloudy brown colour. Light sour and light cherry aroma. Nutty notes. Light bitter flavor. Cherries present but not dominating. Long complex wonderfull finish. Very smooth creamy palate. Nice beer.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - APR 17, 2009
Dark reddish colour, slightly hazy. Pours with almost no head, and the little foam there is disappears very quickly. Very nice sweet and sour aroma of wood, dried fruits, cherries and a light balsamic note. On the palate it is less sour than I expected and could use some more carbonation. The alcohol is virtually nondetectable, which is quite an achievement. Very nice sour.

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, BB 01/2019). Dark murky red color, small beige head. Sour nose, evident cherry aroma, also some earthy notes. Lactose, wild yeast, puckering cherry fruityness. Aftertaste is not very long (sour). Doesn’t feel like 11%. Very good lambic imitation.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottles from Andersand and HomerSlottved, thanks guys! Murky brick red pour with not much head to speak of. A lot of particulate, dead looking yeast and proteins. Kind of celery sour aroma with a faint, stale doughiness. The sour is there but there is something wrong with it. The flavor starts out vinegary and rodenbach-like, but transitions into a very chewy, malty mid-body with a bit of a sloppy, orange peel & dirt finish. 11% is a bit big for a sour ale, this beer really seems to be at odds with itself, with the sour cultures and yeast fighting for control over a massive gravity.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2009
Dark brown-yellow colored with hazy appearance. Little vanishing yellow head. Sour aroma with mild cherries, some chocolate and acidic notes. Acidic medium bodied palate with nice sourness. Flavor is drier with cherries in start, aftertaste has slight alcohol with sour touch.

oh6gdx (20869) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 11, 2009
Bottled@Konttori, Tampere. Murky brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is sour fruits, some mild cherries and quite strong bitterness. Flavour is sour cherries, quite much alcohol and wooden sourness. Not that exciting though.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2009
(Bottled) Muddy dark red-amber with a small, partly lasting head. Strong cherry and vinegar aroma. Flavor of sour cherries, light acidity, but mostly smooth balsamico feel. Also some raspberry. Medium to full body with alcohol completely hidden, but nicely warming. Well made, enjoyable, balanced. Very nice.
