hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle... RBWG 2013This beer rocks!… Milky, pink pour with a minuscule, short-lived, off-white head. The aroma is fantastically fruity, like cherry Smarties; wonderfully acidic, like lemon pulp; and fantastically acetic, like a tiny splash of red wine vinegar. Medium to full-bodied with only a trace of carbonation. The flavor is an excellent marriage of red wine vinegar and acutely sour, fruity, woody acidity. Tart, semi-dry finish. This is more a Flanders red/Flemish brown than an actual kriek lambic. Fortunately, I love Flanders reds. This world class beer was generously shared with me by Maltzilla!

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly pink tinged amber body, completely clear, under a minimal fizzy off-white head that ran to a thin ring very quickly. The nose is sharply acetic with some slight paint thinner notes and a little bit of sour cherry. The flavor is rather sharp and acetic as well, the kinda beer that I know is going to lead to some heartburn later. Some nice oak and sour cherry notes as well. Some nice qualities, but there’s not much complexity or funkiness to this, it’s all acidity. Light bodied and bone dry with sharp fizzy carbonation and a lingering sour cherry finish. I think this actually got better than when it was originally released.

shigadeyo (3009) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

12/22/2010: Iron Hill Kreik De Hill... Aroma: Oozing with vinegar that almost burns the nostrils; hint of "Sugary Daddy" caramel. Appearance: Muddy burnt orange color. Flavor: Very tart and sour with cherry and sugary caramel; sour finish tinged with vinegar; puckering, although the cherry does come through. Palate: Medium-full body; thick. Overall: Quite excellent.

Big, fresh tart flavor, light to medium sweet, good vinegar and acetic fruits. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, biting sour finish, acetic, vinegary a bit, good fruits, sweat.
