Poured into a mini pint at TJs 7th anniversary party. A rare treat on-tap that can not be passed up. A - Pours bright red with spotty head leaving no lacing at all. I think this was one from the bottom of the keg. S - Plenty of sour notes up front. Hints of cherries, oak, and plenty of funk permeate everything. Fairly subtle but still very nice. T - Strong tartness up front slowly giving way to some tart cherrie puree. Finish is strong tartness with plenty of strong cherrie notes. I really like this one a lot but it gets to be a bit overpowering after about half a glass. M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Tart finish that fades quickly. Quite pleasant D - Pretty good. I liked this one a lot. It was tart but still very complex. I have a bottle of this in the cellar, cant wait to see what that does with some age on it.

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 dont 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. Im 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.
