Draft at Brew Dog-Birmingham, 6/1/16.  Pretty excited to see this on draft here, and at a great price point too.  Much cheaper than we get it (if we can find it at all).  Surprised to see I haven’t rated this one before.  Reddish pour, ring of pink head.  Light, drippy lace.  Beautiful tart cherry and funk aroma.  Flavor has a nice balance of funk, tart, and a little sweet.  What can I say about this that would add to the conversation?  Not much.

Ataraxia (481) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Beautiful deep red color with a small pink head. Cherry, wood, almond, and funk. Excellent blend of sweet and tart flavors. Moderate carb, light bodied, and a lingering fruity finish.

copestx (66) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
Bottles at home/everywhere. Aroma is sour cherries, farmhouse and light vinegar. No artificial taste whatsoever, clean, no one makes a better Kriek. Not entirely sure if the Lou Pepe Kriek is better (it’s really good but the standard Kriek holds its ground). If I could have one sour with me on a deserted island this is it.

2015 Edition. 375 ml bottle.
ABV: 5.0% Bottled: June 18 2015.
Got this bottle from Belgian Happines.

This is perfection! The beer pours hazy ruby red like a Strawberry Margarita with a two finger high, pink head that pretty fast dismisses to nothing.

Nose: Tart but sweet, cherries, strawberry, red fruit, citrus, lime, barnyard, hay and wood.
Taste: So refreshing! Fresh cherries, green apples, tart, funk, oak and lemon.
Mouth: Light body and medium carbonation. Sour, sweet and dry. Delicious!

Esto es un regalo para los sentidos, preciosa en copa de champán, olor a tarta de cereza, color rojo oscuro y sabor impactantemente ácido.

AirForceHops (5986) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. 2014 vintage thanks to AdamChan, beautiful violet, purple color. Aroma is a deep cherry, blackberry, and .

Flavor is just awesome. Tart finish but not overly so. Totally natural in every way, not artificial or chemical sourness, or vinaigrette or vinegar notes anyplace in the taste. Most American can’t even come close to making a Kriek this nice. Totally awesome!

sjorsvdg (383) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Zeer smaakvolle kriek lambiek. In het smaakpalet zitten overduidelijk zure kersen, lambiekbier met een champagnesmaak, kurk (de aangename smaak ervan), citroen. Erg goed bier.
