From the brewery. Pours as beautifully as a kriek will ever be. Not the bright cherry red of cough syrup - but the red/orange that matches the aroma. Surprised by the intensity of the cherry. I'm thinking the freshness may have something to do with this. The palate leaves just a touch of off-putting acidity that is not the same as the Geuze or lambic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Josh. Pours a great berry color with a pink fluffy head. A huge funky tart aroma. A ton of funky flavors mix with the cherry tartness. Really good.

Giant dry floral cherry aromas. Murky red color with minimal head. Dry cherry tartness body just perfectly below syrupy body. Amazing.

This kriek is DRY. It will suck the moisture right of of your tongue with a nice tartness and cherries.

Impressive starting off white (pink-tinged) head. Settles to ring bubbles with only a couple of spots for lace. The liquid is orange hued red. A bit hazy. Very sour aroma. Some unidentifiable floral touches. I donít detect any cherry, though. The cherry is subtle in the taste. Lots of tartness with a cutting carbonation that really makes the whole thing work. The aftertaste is moderately long with a chewy, lemony flavor. The body is thin with high carbonation, but again, it seems to work. Iím not as psyched with this beer as some people, but I can see the appeal.

Pretty awesome brew here. Nice sweet cherry aromas, oak and light funk. Almost no carbonation. Sour cherries and raspberries. Oak and funk.
