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.

hapjydeuce (922) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottled. An extra in trade with a long lost trading friend in Europe whos name I have unfortunately forgotten. Deep red brown color and a fine ring of head. Great aroma of sour yeast, oak wood, biscuit and hay. Acetic puckering flavor smothered with cherry and wild funk. Finish is more sweet than dry and sour like I would prefer from a kriek. Complex overall and thoroughly enjoyable! This has at least 3 years of age based on trade record and the layer of dust on it whence I pulled it from the cellar.

Well, picked this up as an extra in Denmark from a very nice trader! almost no head, murky plum color pour. Nose is very lactic, loads of cherry. Very sour. TasteWow. Very sour with loads of cherries, lots of oakiness and tannins nutty finish. it’s interesting but not all that mind-blowing.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
(Bottle) Pours muddy brown, almost no head. The aroma holds tart red berries (cherries and raspberries), green apples, citrus, buttery/light vanilla-driven wood, fat malt (cookies, bread and light caramel), touch of cheese, vinegar, cinnamon/spices and an interesting yeast profile. The flavour is near dry, near medium acidic with almost no bitterness. Notes of cherries, raspberries, well balanced/ malt, and vinegar alongside a touch of funk and wood. The mouthfeel is light tar and round with light carbonation. Citric and balanced malt finish. Near medium bodied.
