4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle. Poured a perfect blood-red ruby color, with no head after a minute or so. Cherries, cherries, cherries. Also get some floral notes. Wonderful effect on the palate, causing puckering and mouth-watering but finishing dry. So well balanced.

Draught at pikkulintu. Pours murky dark red with pink fluffy lacing head and a sour scent. First taste like an explosion of sour cherries also some marzipan, and perhaps some other berries also in taste. Nice rounded sweet and sour taste. Well balanced. Goes down really easy on this hot summer day.

Tap @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours a carmine red with a small, slightly pinkish head. Aroma is a lot of sour vinegar, cherry and berries. Taste follows along the same lines. Tart with vinegar and cherry as well as berries. Dry. Full with some carbonation. Just plain superb.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Some people with a bottle and a sample for lil ol me: Pours opaque red with loose with head. Aroma is cherries, the funk, hints of vinegar, and wood. Taste is not as sour as I expected, but very tart and tangy. The cherries add very little in the way of sweetness, but compliment the sour aspects. Very pleasant mouthfeel. This was a 2011 bottle by the way.

Another wonderful Kriek from this brewery. Great use of different sour cherries, the fermentation turned out fantastic, with perfect palate. One of the most complex Krieks I have had, and real balanced to match.

Bottle @ Quintessence and at home. My favorite among the LP’s. Intense cherry flavor with the bitter cherry seed, the skin and pulp. Not surprised to find lemon, almonds and barnyard funk. Tanins and bitterness that gives variety to the sourness when it comes to mouthfeel.
