Mortlach (1886) - Rome, - MAR 2, 2012
08/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (handpump). Spillata a pompa. Bellissimo color rosso ciliegia, intenso, limpidissimo, con schiuma biancastra abbastanza persistente. Il naso è meraviglioso, le ciliegie prendono subito il sopravvento restituendo un aroma pulitissimo, difficilmente eguagliabile da altre kriek. In bocca delude un po’, ha un bell’attacco fruttato di ciliegia, ma si perde sul finale, quando emergono note zuccherine forse un po’ eccessive. Comunque è una bella kriek.

minutemat (4152) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours blood red, foamy off-white head. Aroma is thorny cherries. Taste is sweet cherries, fairly light with a spritzy mouthfeel and sugary finish. Light sourness, could do with a crisper sharpness, but has a decent sweetness. Refreshing but not the best kriek out there.

villevav (444) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2016
[2015-10-10] Rubiininpunainen, hieman samea, vaaleanpunainen ohut vaahto. Tuoksusssa hapanta, kypsää kirsikkaisuutta ja hieman hiivaa sekä joulumausteita, ehkäpä kaardemummaa. Maku on happaman kirsikkainen ja eloisa. Keskiasteinen tai hieman keskimääräistä reilumpi hiilihappoisuus.

Bottle. Pours ruby red with a pink head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Pretty light bodied and lively. Sweet finish, quite abrupt. A lot of cherry flavour with the sourness from the fermentation. Sweet finish. Quite lovely and refreshing.

aleigator (767) - GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
Pours a saturated ruby red color with a pinkish, stable head. Has aromas of sweet, jammy cherries with a jogurt tartness to it, also featuring a dusty stone pit quality. Offers a soft, sprizzy mouthfeel, revealing a subtle stone minerality among its refreshing tartness. Tastes of an aqueous softness, cherry stone pits and unripe cherry pulp, together with a bright acidity. Leafy, old hops add to the tartness with a subtle dryness, creating an intriguing interplay with fruity, sweeter turning cherries. Finishes utmost soft on the tongue with a refreshing, bubbly carbonation and matured, ripe cherries, revealing a cherry skin quality. Very well put together with a refreshing sparkly aspect, revealing an astonishing cherry complexity, which finishes almost with an overripe, fermented sweetness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4466) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 28, 2016
Not sure what vintage this is but served in a snifter it pours a lovely ruby red with a light pink head. The aroma’s quite different from other krieks as it delivers the same cherry and oak as so many others but I also get a distinct odd caramel like quality. Fairly full bodied with a dry finish that follows a hit of sweetness. The taste starts off sweet cherries, then musty oak, some cloying sweet cherry syrup before ending very dry. It’s pretty good though I feel there’s something a bit off with the aroma.
