2010 bottling. Pours pretty orange-red amber, small ring of bubbles. Aroma has held up well and is maybe my favorite part of this beer: dry sour cherry, oak, light red wine, orange, though also has some slightly volatile chemical notes. Taste is sour pie cherry and preserved lemon, lemon juice, some sweet malts too. Very nice.

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.

lusikka (7592) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
750 ml bottle @ ISKTR V. Pours a dark ruby amber colour with a small head. Aroma of dark cherries, syrupy sweetness and some wooden notes. Flavour of dark cherries, rather heavy sourness, heavy earthiness, sour worms, yeastiness, some spiciness and leather. Medium bodied. Sourness burns a bit too much here. Good.

Pours clear dark mahogany color with a small head. Sourish fruits on the nose with sweet ripe fruits and caramel, some wooden notes too. Quite tart flavor, some wooden notes, cherries, ripe fruit notes and mild spices. I like the tartness here. Very good.

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.

gEUS (1538) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2015
750 ml bottle - 2012 project. Pours dark mahoney amber, small to no head. Pungent woody nose, balsamic acid side of vinegar, tart cherries and bit of raspberries. Light aroma, immediate acidic attack, pure vinegar. Over its top. this is not a Belgian Flanders Style Red Ale, this is pure lactic fermentation. Aftertaste is fruit tannins, and interesting.

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.

Aged 4 years. Murky amber with a lovely aroma of wood and cherry and earthy sourness. Really tasty sour flavor with loads of earthy sour, sour cherry, oak, and funky tartness. Really good.
