Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Bottle at Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours cloudy red brown, with a long lasting medium sized off-white head. Aroma is slightly sour and dry cherries with hint of hay. Flavour is dry and slightly sour with a cherry touch and a watery finish. Very drinkable. 7-4-7-3-15 Re-Rate: 2003 bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke. Extra: Dry aroma with dusty and woody notes as well. Dry, woody flavour without the watery palate, but it lags a nice long after-taste.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2009
Kriek with deep cherry colour and rich white head. The aroma is full of real cherries, some sour cherry stones too. The flavor is not very sour but like fermented juive from ripe cherries. Still it is quite dry and tart. The falvor is quite soft, and very berryish. The palate is slightly acidic and lingering, medium carbonated and medium bodied. Not very heavy, but rich on fruitiness.

37,5 bottle. Dark red, nice flavour. Tasting really sweet. Sweet, juicy cherry finish. A tasty piece of pie.

WeeHeavySD (3366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2009
375ml bottle via Kim Johansen, thanks Kim. Pours reddish brown with no head. Nose is tart and dry and overall strange. Taste is quite tart and full of big chewy cherries. Overall pretty good, not amazing, wasn’t expecting amazing, but I like it.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2009 Dark and hazy red. Sweet and woody aroma of cherries. The flavour is perfectly balanced: not as sour as the aggresive krieks, and not as sweet and artificial as the worst of the krieks. Highly drinkable and refreshing - the best kriek I’ve had.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Sadly I wish Id gotten JKs bottle. This was delicious, but not as tart as Id hoped. A wonderful red color but with a mildly tart aroma and flavor. A very nice cherry aroma and flavor, but not what Id hoped based on Johns review.

Travlr (20243) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2008
375 ml bottle. Beautiful color. Decent sourness, balanced with a slight sweetness. Not as musty as most, but still very good.

Beer5000 (5770) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2008
750 ml bottle. Almost clear, dark red body with a tiny head. Aroma is sweet and sour cherry. Flavor is nice balanced between sweet and sour, cherry fruity as well (of course). Nice, drinkable, refreshing but not outstanding. Like it a lot anyway.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 25, 2008
375ml bottle: poured reddish brown with a quickly dissipating pinkish head. Mild sour cherry aroma with yeast notes. Moderate sour taste with just a hint of sweetness and a full cherry flavor. Slightly watery finish but still quite nice.
