I love this. It’s a little too tart for me though, but that’s what it’s supposed to be.

0.75 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja and Goran, thanks. Deep ruby red cherry color, diminishing pink head. Sour cherry and citrus aroma. Medium to heavy carbonation. Nice balance of cherry and cellar aromas. Sour cherry finish. Good.

Pours deep cerise colour with a small, frothy, reddish head that disappears almost instantly. Cherries, wine, vinegar in the aroma with the complete absence of wild notes... much to my surprise. Then comes the taste, really sour with cherry notes and just a small doze of funk. Either I was in a bad shape or the beer has lost its funky characer somehow. Good stuff but not as complex as Flanders Sour Ales.

Piana różowa, obfita i sycząca, błyskawicznie opada do zera. Barwa ciemno czerwona, bordowa, mętna. Aromat dość intensywny, kwaskowy, przede wszystkim dojrzałe wiśnie, porzeczki i jeżyny w akompaniamencie dzikich, lekko stajennych nut i octu winnego. W smaku mocno kwaśne, orzeźwiające, pestkowo wiśniowe, w tle nuty beczkowe, stare drewno, ocet balsamiczny i delikatna końska derka. Wysycenie wysokie, drobne. W afterteasie wytrawne czerwone wino. Super Kriek, dodatek wiśni wyrazisty, leżakowanie w dębowych beczkach nadało mu dodatkowej głębi i szlachetności. Idealny na ciepłe dni, świetnie gasi pragnienie, aczkolwiek jest to piwo nie dla każdego z uwagi na wysoką kwaśność i brak cukru w składzie.

Przemek1992 (66) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bardo wiśniowe ale są to czyste wiśnie, nie czuć tak charakterystycznego smaku pestek z wiśni. Kwaskowość nie za wysoka ale bardzo orzeźwiająca.
