Thank you Joes! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. Red amber, little head. Nose is sweet cherry Ė massive with low complimentary sourness. Taste is massive rich, juicy sweet cherry with low complimentary sourness,Ö. This tastes like they used delicious sweet cherries & not sour ones as promised by the label (kriek = sour cherry), doesnít matter, this is delicious, fruit is massive, juicy, sourness is amazingly restrained & complimentary especially for an USA brewer, faint oak. Rich bodied. Very nice fruit sour. Great stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml wax dipped bottle- Pours very hazy ruby red to orange with a light tan crackly head that could get away from you if not poured carefully yet never quite goes away. Aroma is strong in cherries, tart, cherry pie filling, very nice aroma. Taste is very tart cherries, the barrel aging has added massive complexity, vinegar and funk. World class beer that I loved!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Received this beer from a friend in CA, coming from Stearnís Liquor in Long Beach, CA. Poured from the 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. bottle into a 4 Hands Tulip Glass. Has Botlte No. C 1/37 - Best by: 06/2017 on the back of the label.
Aroma- has an unfamiliar cherry aroma and bit of musk behind it. Puckers the nose even.
Appearance- Pours a 2.5 finger head that has great head retention. Leaves a few suds behind but no real lace and the body of the beer is dark copper with a glow to it. Has no clarity.
Flavor- Starts musky and has this "Oregon cherry" taste that Iíve never experience. Dull but puckers and is very sweet.
Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Effervescent, Musky finish and tart cherries.
Overall Impression- Awesome Kriek! Iím interested in trying more American sours and this one was a great example of the style. Iím hoping to find another bottle of this or their Peche and see how they age. Recommend if available!

A - Pours a super hazy reddish-brown with a big finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sour cherries, funky brett and other yeasts, other dark fruits, oak, and a bit of lemon peel and toffee malts.
T - Starts off with a mix of sour cherries with some caramel malts, light lemon peel notes, and a bit of vanilla. Through the middle, some tart and funky brett and yeast flavors come through with some other farmhouse flavors and some oak. The finish is a mix of sour cherries, funky and tart yeasts, toffee malts, vanilla, and oak.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sour and tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice funky and sour Kriek-style with some nice cherry flavor and some great funky yeast character.
