hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Draft… DLD’08… Clear, fairly dark, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. The aroma is straightforward and all about funk and cherries. Medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. Moderately tart, but that’s about it. Not a whole lot along the lines of fruit or cherries. Tart, watery finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest (8/9/08): Pours a hazy copper amber with a frothy light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark caramel and cherry fruity nose with a touch of tartness. Body starts lightly sweet and tart fruity with a smooth balance of sweet and tart in the finish. A pretty nice kriek.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Poured deep reddish-brown with not much head. The aroma was of sweet cherries upfront backed by their tart skins and oak.. rather soft and restrained. The flavor found dry, tart cherry dust paired with oaky sourness.. not very complex or acidic.. more oak and cherry tartness on the finish. Dry on the palate with a bit more sweetness than I’d prefer.. OK balance.. wish it had more bite.

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2008
Tap at the pre-DLD party at Flossmoor, thanks Matt and Andrew for this:

Hazy red hue with a small head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of tart cherry, slight lacto funk, oak, herbal hop, and dusty yeast esters. The taste has a nice balance of fruit and biscuity malt with a dry oak finish. A touch of wild yeast notes adds to the depth of palate. The mouth feel is slightly chewy, dry and a tad chalky. Overall it was a very drinkable brew, Mikey Likey!

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2008
I like the Frambozen version better (although I normally prefer Krieks), but this is yet another dandy from Matt & Andrew. It poured a hazy brownish-red with just small amounts of both head and lace. It had a fresh, tart dark cherry aroma, mildly funky, with a touch of oak and some earthy hops. A bit of cherry pit bitterness and a light fruity sourness are added to the flavor of this smooth & soothing ale. The finish is dry and fruity. Quite nice.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 28, 2008
Draft @ Flossmoor, pre-DLD fest. Pours a murky, ruby amber color; thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Solid amounts of overripe red fruits and funky strawberries in the aroma; lacking a bit of density, but still funky, slightly tart and tasty. Medium mouthfeel: slightly tart, chewy cherry character; touches of oak, vanilla, overripe red fruits; not incredibly dense, but tasty and very drinkable. Medium finish: red fruit juice, touch of tartness and funk, some toasted grains and sugar.
