Fatehunter (1954) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Poured into a flute glass. Reddish hue with a red tinted finger of head. It smells like bread and faintly of cherry. It has a sweet taste overall, candy cherry too. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Crisp texture. Okay, but there are better Krieks out there.

Cristobal37 (536) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 On tap at Mazl Tov Budapest. Sparkling red with fluffy foamy head. Sweet and tart cherry with a surprisingly soft and malty finish. Enjoyable and more drinkable than most citrus heavy cherry lambics. Nice.

Mr_Pink_152 (2735) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at the Lincoln AleHouse and Kitchen. Rose colour with a very pale pink head. Fruity cherry aroma and taste. Sweet rather than a deep cherry taste.

The_Osprey (4891) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - 330ml can at home in Richmond as ’Belle-Vue Kriek Classique’, 4.5%, BB March 2016. Deep red, opaque, lightly sparkling, foamy pink head doesn’t endure, full lacing. Aroma is mostly cherry juice, cherry yoghurt. Suggestions of other fruits but this is a cherry bomb. Body is medium to light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet, a bit washed out and metallic, cherry flavoured boiled sweets. Overall, a fun beer.

Gurthnar (4099) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle from Drinkshop. Quite complex cherry flavour and aroma, not so simple, straightforward and 100% cherry, rather containing all parts of it, including pits and skins. The rest of the beer character is subtle and undisturbing. Easy drinking, refreshing. Works for me.

OnlyRogueAngel (42) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2015
Deep red with a pinkish head. Strong cherry aroma with hints of vanilla and wood. Sharp cherry tartness, almost jam-like, with hints of nut and roasted barley. Acidic cherry aftertaste with a nutty spiciness.

Lele (299) - Padova, ITALY - NOV 8, 2015
Buon lambic fuit. Colore amarena, con schiuma abbondante e persistente. Al naso chiari sentori di marena, e un tocco del chiaro sentore lambic. In bocca si rivela leggermente acida e fresca, con evidentissimi sentori di amarena. L’impressione, però, è come se ci avessero messo dello sciroppo industriale di amarena, rendendo il gusto gradevole, ma un po’ artificioso, sograttutto quando la birra inizia a scaldarsi.

Rote Farbe rötlicher schwacher Schaum, Geruch fruchtig herb, Geschmack relativ nach Kirsch, leicht säuerlich Süßnote ok

DoctorHU (230) - UKRAINE - OCT 26, 2015
CAN 33 CL. In the aroma tones slightly rotten cherry, notes of vanilla and fruit vinegar. In the taste of sour cherry, perfume notes, cereal sweetness muted, barely perceptible woody bitterness. The sour aftertaste long and peaceful stretches (of course it is the same cherry), far in the background grain tone.

[ Bottle ][ 3oz ][ @tasting ][ $5 ][ Tulip ][ 08.7.15 ]
bright red, puffy white head drops quick. heavy sweet sugar nose, some jammy kriek but obviously boosted. Fizzy soda front palate, lightly sweet co2 Cherry mid before heavy sweetness finish, sticky despite high effervescence.
