Drew-LaPalooza brew #12: Deep bloody red, pretty pink head. All of the outdoor aromas that you could hope for, and more! Super sour tart - leaves me squinty eyed. Acidy at the back and then tons of sour bing cherry with a strong woody finish. Top notch!

Drew-LaPalooza. Dark red color, pink head, musty, sour, outdoor feel to it. Sourness attacks the tongue, very carbonated on the palate. First time I had something like this I didn’t know quite what to think. Now, I like them.

(sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden) Red with a small haze, pink bubbly head. Dry musty aroma with a hint of black cherries. Very sour and dry flavour...you have to seek after the cherries. Long and extremly sour finish. My stomach hates me after this.

WCCII: Somewhat cloudy pinkish coloured beer with a quickly disappearing head. Light rubber and cherry aroma. The taste is slightly vintage which means that there is a light buttery cherry taste. Maybe this beer will get better in a few more years. Maybe a bit too thin.

Dark red in color. You can really smell the cherries, wood, sour. Nice and tart, not very sweet with a real cherry taste.
Finishes with a certain spiciness. Just
became my favorite kriek.

Light cherry nose complimented by its light cherry color. Highly sour with no sweetness to be detected. More of the outdoor, hay, blanket, straw, cobweb flavors than any fruit/cherry flavors. Very true to description. Dry finish.

Well made Kriek. Ruby red color. Aroma is of sour cherries with a little yeast. Similiar to a port cheese. Mouthfeel is bubbly almost like champagne. Sour. dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pink color, short white head. Aroma of marzipan, some krieken. Not really sour taste, quite soft, especially for a cantillon, which is very flat and hard usually. Odd brew, but quite nice.

Sweet raspberry, sweeter than I expected would be. Sour, full basket of citrus and apple fruits. Bright raspberry, bloody ruby like. Sour, red currant, gooseberry. Nice fruity approach. Very good .
