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

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 (20954) - 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 (5827) - 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.

Hazy reddish colour. Nose not so good. A nice sherryish taste. pale pink head. Medium sourness also light sweetness. A bottle (1882) tasted at Pikkulintu.

It is a little confusing the subject. They have different Kirek biers and do not know what is the difference. It was good like a cherry pie. Had it at GBBF 2008.

JK (5633) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
I am far more impressed with this beer than the European drinkers. Dark cloudy red with suspended yeast, and a layer of foam that stays at nearly 1/2 inch more than 30 minutes after pouring into my Cantillon tumbler. Lambic aroma with sour cherry. More lambic flavor with yeast in the flavor, oak, and cherry. Some sugar, not much. Not as thick as Scharbekse, but thicker than some other krieks. Sour for sure, not Cantillon or Fontienen sour, but sour for sure. I did expect more sourness like Girardin Gueuze, but it doesn’t go so far. Purchased in Brugge, March 2007, Baccus Cornelius, with July 2006 stamped on the cap.
