3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown mahogany and mostly opaque with a huge, chunky khaki head that settles slowly. Aroma is sour, funky cherry skins. Tart with a dry, musty funk far in the background. Light vanilla and some dry oak in the finish. Taste is plenty of sour cherries and sour grapes with a big vinous and oak flavors. Very nice tartness, gets the saliva glands sweating big-time. Sweet, dying tartness, cherry and grape, oaky finish. Tasty stuff, seems to have more bottle variation than most other Cascades; some bottles have a mild medicinal tone, others are completely void.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruskeahkon punertava, kotikaljamainen olomuoto, niukka vaahto joka häipyy nopeasti reunoille ja pois. Tuoksussa hienoista makeutta, kriekkimäiseen tapaan. Samettisen hapokas, kirpeä omenainen ensipuraisu joka muuttuu makean imelään kirsikkaan. Kuin vihreää kirpeää omenaa söisi. Hyväähän tämä silti.

Great big cherries in the aroma. Sour black cherry smell and taste. Some oak and cheese, along with sour yeast notes. Very complex undertones of the funk. Cherries made this awesome.

At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. 8.17% cascade Kriek is a muddy pinkish brown that reminds me of the New Glarus strawberry. Oaky cork cherry aroma, scratchy carbonation on a light body. The taste is quite good a sort of cherry caramel tart and fruity.
