3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to boralyl for getting this out my way. Served in a Cascade goblet. Pours a very dark red, looking almost exactly like red wine. The nose similarly has a lot of red-wine-type character. Some tannins along with mild cherry. Flavor is earthy and slightly fruity. Very low carbonation, and only a moderate amount of acidity.

Bottle generously shared by Dave. Aroma of pez, dark cherries, and instant lemonade. Pours hazy purple with no head or lacing. Taste is lush cherries, tart lemonade mix, and sweet tart candies. Nice tartness and a sweet mouthfeel. The powdered candy taste was slightly offputting but it was still enjoyable.

Draft at the brewery.
Dark, nearly black pour with red highlights. Cherry licorice aroma, some sourness. Modestly sour flavor, plenty of pie cherries of course. Cascade just doesn’t do funk, though. The sourness is there, but the funk ain’t. Still pretty good and something I’d be quite happy to drink when stumbling across it on tap.

On tap at the big old barrel. Pours a dark red color with a small white head. The aroma is oak and huge cherry. Funky dry flavors, some mostly sweet cherries, more oak, lacto sourness, some vanilla fits into a spicy cherry character. Pretty sour but very drinkable. Awesome. I love me some Kriek.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Ruby, dark red color with some brown-ish hints & a thin ring of slightly pink-tinted "head", leaving no lacing behind. Aroma has notes of juicy cherry, oak, & lighter berry notes, all with a big tartness, oak, & some mild, lemon-like acidity. Taste includes ripe cherries, green apples, berries, & some lemon flesh; nicely sour & puckering while maintaining a soft acidity throughout. Wet oak isn’t there at first, but becomes noticeable in the finish with a very faint mustiness (possibly another side affect of the oak). Dry, cherry & lemon skin finish with a light aftertaste of oak. Very nice brew.
