Nice beer. Nice appearance, lovely dark red, opaque beer, with a nice head that lasts. Aroma is somewhat tart, hints of vinegar catch the nostril, not great, but nice cherries there. Cherries in the taste, refreshing. Very overpowering, nothing else but cherries, even though it’s a thick aftertaste like beer. Good all round refreshing beer.

One of those beers that is delicious but not a beer kinda way. In my opinion, it had more in common with a wine cooler than a beer, but that doesnt mean i didnt enjoy it. Both aroma and taste were full of tart cherries. Had a really smooth and fresh flavor. Not complaing at about the flavor at all, but don’t buy if you are in the mood for a real beer.

Another of the great beers we had at my niece’s 21st birthday party. A reddish-pink pour with a bubbly head. A sour cherry aroma. A sour cherry flavor with a bit of basalmic vinegar and not overly sweet but still really refreshing. A GREAT example of how a kriekbier is made.

Golden red color for the body, with a heavy head typical of this type of beer. Vinegar and citrus fruits complete the aroma. Good tartness in the flavoring, very similar to SweetTarts candy. Clean ending, highly enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(375ml bottle, vintage 2004, best by 9/14, 5% ABV) Large beige head with pink notes, atop a clear red body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry, light barnyard, oak. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, light tartness/sourness, faint oak. Low carbonation, slightly sticky light-medium body, quite drinkable. Needs a bit more tartness and carbonation, but it does pretty well despite these quibbles.
