A nice garnet body with a nice pink head that had mild retention and some lace. A nice presence of carbonation. Aroma had a nice mix of cherries and yeast. Some nice barnyard notes and some grass. Flavor was a nice balance of sweet cherries and bitter yeast notes, mostly barnyard. Nice mouth feel.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Red color with small pink head. A bit tartness, fruitiness, sweet. Taste is sweet, sugary cherries. Tartness is there, but not very present. Carbonation is ok. Absolutely drinkable among the "sugar-krieks"

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. It pours a deep, murky purple color with just a hint at fizz, but no head to speak of. The aroma has funky dark cherry skins, wet wood, a bit of paper. The taste is mostly fruity sweetness, but there is a touch of acidity. Medium body, a little bit chewy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Some wine notes come through as it warms. Nice sipper. Best by date 22.06.2015.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear red with a modest light pink head that dissapears at the blink of an eye. Aroma of sweet cherries and candy. Light body, slick feel, fizzy carbonation. Taste is refreshing and sour with cherries, almost like a soda. Dry finish. Very drinkable, but would perhaps benefit from more than 4 % ABV.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like a dark red lemonade complete with a mad head. The aroma is of sharp, sour cherry and citrus combined with a fair bit musty, almost dusty, notes and just the faintest hint of floral at the finish.
A tart flavour in the mouth with a really creamy palate and a pleasant sour aftertaste. Not at all sweet.

kriek is certainly not my favorite style. This one I appreciated though. Fruity but never sweet and still a beer. Fine beer.
