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.

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.

(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.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle, much thanks to andersand. Aroma of yogurty cultures, tart-yogurt cherries, cherry pits, lots of oak/wood, lots of leather. Flavor has lots of tart cherry skins, and some sweeter cherry notes, sort of like a chocolate cherry dessert, decadent but not sugary. Other fruits creep in as well, peach, grape. Big leather/earthy notes as well, and some signs of malt, with a return to a yogurt-cherry finish. Mildly acidic. A touch of warmth on the finish. I really feel that each element of the beer is clearly defined yet meshes seamlessly with the others in a complex array of goodness.

LilBeerDoctor (3567) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dirty red with no real head. Aroma of sweet cherries, oak, vanilla. Flavor of sweet tart candies, wood, and cherry juice. Perhaps some alcohol notes--the palate is a little harsh. You probably couldn’t guess this was 11% but it is strong. Smells better than it tastes. It was just alright for me. 7/4/6/3/14 (3.4/5)

thewolf (11644) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin og Tobak, Vejle.
Pours muddy, dark brown. There is no head to speak of. Great and complex aroma. Lots of wood, some vanilla, tart fruits, plums, cherries and grapes. Light vinious with some liqourice notes. Low carbonation, rather fat mouthfeel. Flavour begins a tad medicinic, then turns wonderfully dry and tart. Lots of oak and cherries mix with some caramel, overripe plums, viniousness and liqourice. Looks terrible, but is a really solid attempt at a high alcohol sour.
