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.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home thanks muchly to Puzzl.
Dirty dark red brown with no head at all. Exploded out of the bottle on opening sadly so we lost at least a third of a 25cl bottle. A solid sour cherry beer with a distinctly aged character. Reminds me very much of something I’d buy at the Kulminator. Some sherry and cognac type notes with an unusual sour hit that doesn’t seem to come from anywhere but is rather controlling. Very lactic and tart indeed. Amazed at how well the alcohol is hidden. It doesn’t even feel like 5% let alone 11%. It’s a funny one really, I’m struggling to find much to say. Maybe I’ll just say it’s a reasonable sour cherry beer and leave it at that before this rate turns into a semi inebriated ramble.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2009
It is beautiful, dark red with a very small head. The aroma has notes of sour cherries, wood, blackberries and red wine. The flavor is sweet and refreshingly sour with notes of cherries, wood, light balsamico, toffee, blackberries, red wine and the finish is dry. It’s a truly nice surprise, tasty, harmonic and nice!

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle. It pours almost as headless as the cross Black Sabbath told us about, just a tiny rim of beige bubbles. The body is unclear, and reddish brown in color. The aroma is of the complex type, with tart cherries, balsamic vinegar and alcohol the most dominant, followed by vanilla, sugary notes, marzipan and some potent red wine. As it warms up a bit, there’s a pleasant touch of oxidation to be found as well. The flavor follows the same path as the aroma, with lots of mouth puckering tart cherries and acids, still with a sort of balancing sweetness. The mouthfeel can be compared to that of a red wine, maybe a bit thinner, and quite velvety. Vanilla notes, alcohol, berries and marcipan. The finish is quite lemony sour and tart, with wood and cherries coming after a while. And in the very end, some alcohol fires up and warms the mouth and throat. Yet another masterpiece from CSA. 090922

250, capped. Thanks, Maria! What a cool label. Pours a nearly opaque dark muddy brown with no head, lace, or legs. The barreling has certainly made an impact on this one. Nice balanced nose of tart pie cherries and oak. Quite tart and puckery. Watery body, fairly light. Tons of tart cherries and wood all over the place, tart from the giddyup right through to the long, almost lemony finish. This is very pleasant and refreshing, and shows no signs of the booze. But the flavors are fairly narrow in scope. Could use come complexity.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a dark brown beer without a head. I will summarize the aroma, flavor and palate in one word: sour. Overall the beer tastes like a kriek and has a lot of complexity.

MPA (837) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Bottle (cellphone rating). Beautiful reddish brown with hardly no head. Just a little beige foam is visible. Tart aroma with an abundance of berries - mainly cherries - sweetness and honey. Sour flavour of berries but with a brown sugar sweetness as well. Ends up with a Campari-like bitterness. Soft but still with a good amount of carbon. I like this beer a lot. Re-rate: Exactly same score with a bottle bought at the same time but opened almost a year later. Didn’t look at old notes, as I had forgotten, I had rated this before. Picked up some grapes in aroma this time and fruit in flavour along with the above mentioned impressions. Still a very nice beer.
