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 courtesy of a trade with yespr. Pours a murky deep reddish brown with a thin tan head that disappears after the first sip and leaves no lace. Very pleasant aroma of sour cherries, oak, and red wine vinegar. The flavor is equally enjoyable with sour cherries and oak with an earthy component that adds to the complexity. Some red wine vinegar in the flavor as well along with just a bit of brown sugar. Enjoyable.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle care of Papsoe. Pours a very cloudy dirty brown with some reddish tinges around the edges. Decent offwhite coloured head that falls away very quickly to nothing. Not the best looking beer to be honest. Aromas are dominated by lactic sourness with some sour cherry and lemons coming through in support. Good stuff. Flavours are likewise dominated by lactic acid with a little sweetness coming through from the cherries and maly backbone. Big acidic bite gives a very dry finish. Very full mouthfeel. Good beer

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled from 250 ml bottle and shared by BDR. Pours a hazy yellowish dark brown colored brew with a thin head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of tart cherries, vanilla, oak wood, a hint of vegetable and rhubarb. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of smoked wood, tart cherries, vanilla and a touch of brown sugar. Finish is semi-sweet with some cherry and brown sugar aftertaste.

BuckeyeBoy (2628) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle thanks to ditmier for sharing. Pours out cloudy mahogany with a small sand head. Aroma is nice citrus, cherries, oak, and tart. Taste more of the cherries and citrus (lemons mostly) along with some wood and white vinegar.

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2010
My first kriek! :-) Pours a a murky red-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is estery barnyard notes, cherries and hints of lemon and wood. Taste is oak, smoke, cherries, yeasty notes and hints of balsamic. Well-toned, as far as I can see, Kriekselikroxen is a solidly brewed sour ale that shouldn’t scare anyone away from trying out more of the genre.

Thanks BDR. The beer pours to a murky deep reddish brown body with a thin white head. The aroma is sour raspberry and rhubarb. The flavor is sour but has a bit of heft in the malt point. Some oak and deep sour malt and fruits. The palate is nicely tart.

Many thanks to Brad for bringing the 250mL bottle! Poured hazy chocolatey brown with just a light ring of beige head.. rather ugly actually. The aroma picked up sour cherries and oak notes upfront with a touch of vanilla and warm peppery notes around.. almost syrupy with the cherry component.. well balanced. The flavor found a lot of the lactic sourness throughout, with less of the cherries.. vinous notes surrounded and left most of the impression on the finish.. a bit of vanilla again sweetened it up.. finished with lactic sourness and dry, dusty cherries. Medium-bodied with almost no carbonation on the palate.. the barrel and related vinous notes were present, but seemed to only show when I specifically thought about it. Alright stuff.
