Cloudy dark reddish brown with a tiny persistent off-white head. Cherry aroma with a sour edge. Medium bodied, lively but thin carbonation, starts sweet and ends sour with a long cherry character. Not intense enough to satisfy the hardcore sour beer drinkers, but not candy-like some that I’ve had.

375 ml bottle best before 12/2008. Muddy deep read colour and a nice cloudy fading pink head and sticky lace. Huge sweet cherry aroma with a hint of spice and some citrus sourness. Sweet cherry flavour and an assertive spicy character as well. The beer holds up well and the sweetness is not cloying like some other krieks I’ve had. Finish is both sweet and sour. Aroma and flavour becomes even spicier as it warms up. Reminds me of Quelque Chose from Unibroue.

OKBeer (1168) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2004
375 ml Bottle. Best Before end of 12/2013, cork dated 1/2003. Red colour with light brown highlights and a thick but diminishing frothy and fizzy pinkish brown head. Sour cherry, oak, and light acetic acid aroma. Sour cherries and acidity dominate the flavour, with slight oaky and woody notes. Light bodied and fizzy, but refreshing. Finish is dry and lightly bitter to go with the lingering acidity.

Red color, medium, fugaceous, pink head. Very low carbonation. Sweet cherry aroma. Acid and sweet cherry flavors. Medium to thick body, oily mouthfeel. Very good and enjoyable !

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Red brown colour with a large light brown head. Very sweet aroma. Quite artificial. The sourness in flavour and finish is indulged in the sweetness of the cherry.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Deep cherry aroma, sweet - like Lifesaver or cough drop cherry. Tannic, like cherry skins, with light hops presence. Dark red-brown or black currant clear with off-white, pinkish thin lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation, light tart burn. Strong taste of cherries to start, sugary and tart, but not puckering-ly dry. Finish has more acidity and some bitterness comes in, but never overpowering. After is clean with bit of cherry juice. A pleasant kriek.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Cherry taste seemed syrupy, past it’s prime (and the bottle was only 3 years old). Only a small amount of tartness, finish was dry but mostly uneventful.

jaymobrown (1617) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Tasted something like cherries dumped into dirty water. Some nice tartness and sour notes along with a bit of fruit flavors, but sort of gritty. Dry end.

This is the first fruit beer i’ve tried....always thought they were a bit ’ girlie ’ BOY was i missin out. Huge burst of cherries when you pop the cork! Incredibley dark burgundy appearance,with a thin pale pink head.An initial creamy fruity taste that quickly changes to sour.It has a nice malty finish and it smells & tastes of Cherry Drops!

2000 edition, 5.5% acquired in Montreal. Highly carbonated cherry champagne. Like a high quality carbonated natural not sweet juice fun
