mcberko (6443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Leeds, pours a clear cherry red with a small beige head. Nose brings out faded cherries, dishwasher detergent, and tart wheaty notes. Flavour brings out the same dishwasher fluid, soap, faded cherries and lightly tart wheat. Something is off here - way too soapy and chemically. Not a disaster but no where close to a refreshing and well-constructed Berliner.

Bottle at home. Pours ruby, light burnt toffee and caramel, dry, light fruit, very thin.

liquidbread86 (39) - Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2014
Like a kriek. Blitz kriek, get it? This beer is slightly sour with a "bready" taste. Easy intro to Belgian krieks.

Bright clear red - amber beer, fluffy off white head. Light hoppy nose. Light palate, inevitably a bit thin. Semi dry. Nice fresh hops - mild pine and marmalade orange. Trace of black tea. Mild minerals. Mild hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent low abv beer but it is thin.

Creamy yellow tan head, copper body. Raisin, barley wine like, malty, nutty. Bit thin but not so for 2.8%. Herbal bitter. Nice! (At ZZT V)

Bottle from Craig drunk at Naomi’s. Quite a large head and came out the bottle itself. A bit cloudy. Brown. Quite a stark taste.
