Camons (5610) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2012
Tap / beer in a box @ Fairbar. Pours dark red with a small offwhite ring of foam. Aroma of cherry, marcipan, almond, light wood and a little sourness. Flavor is rather sweet with cherry, almond, marcipan, cherry stones, and a very light sourness. Thin body, flat carbonation. Could have used a little more sourness, but thats proberly due to the freshness of the beer. 011112

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at GBBF - 08/08/12. Clear blood red with little in the way of head. Intense cherry aroma, and a little tartness, sweet smelling. All about the cherries again in the taste, although not as sweet as the nose indicated, good balance of tart/sweet/sour. Medium bodied, little if nothing in the way of carbonation.

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 22, 2012
On draught at La Fleur en Papier Doré

Pours a very pretty red color, there are a few bubbles atop the beer as it comes out, but this is basically flat.

The aroma is nutty with some cherry and light yogurt.

The flavor is very pleasantly earthy with a great bit of tart cherry flavor, the kriek is mildly sour and has some citrus rind flavor along with a bit of plain yogurt.
