Taster at DBS. Light brown color with a red hue. Cherry flavored of course, decent beer, but not quite as balanced as I thought it should be.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Muddy reddish hue with creamy tan head that settled. Aroma is cherry pit, hay, shite peppercorn, slight funk. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with a tart following and clean finish. Overall this is a very nice brew.

750 ml bottle pour split. Pours a super cloudy tomato juice like color with a both sweet and sour dark fruit aroma. Love the bottle and artwork by the way. Initially sweet cherry flavor with a tart finish. Seems more sour the more I drink it. Berry, fruit and sweet cherry finish. Very drinkable for me, and a good amount of flavor. I really enjoyed this beer. Fits my style well. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy, golden-brown with a fine, creamy, off-white head. Lightly tangy and dank cherries in the aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor with ripe and faint tart cherries, mild funk, some bitter cherry pits. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly juicy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL waxed bottle that was shared in a blind tasting. This ended up being the first beer in the blind tasting, which I believe makes it the least biased rating. I (and really everyone else tasting) has not been biased by the other (much better) beers. This was so bad that I actually felt the need to rate it as opposed to anything else in the tasting. I think what makes me upset is how good this brewery is but how bad this beer is... AND THE PRICE TAG. $20 for this bullshit makes me want to boycott everything else from this brewery. Color is very muddy red, well its more brown than red. No sourness, no fruit, no cherry at all. I get dusty old malt, maybe some brown earthy malts. Thatís it, what a waste of money and time.

Pours a cloudy brownish-red with a tart, basement funk, and some cherries. The flavor is somewhat light, with cherry and tart flavors that lead to a slightly spur finish.

Nice, mildly sour, tart. Flavor has cherries, dark fruit. Savory, full mouthfeel. Nice aroma. Fizzy, champagne-like carbonation becomes more moderate, but a full head stays a while. From a bottle thatís been in my fridge almost 2 years.

750 ml bottle to taster (thanks brew3crew). Looks decent; a murky orangish brown with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good; funky and mildly tart with notes of cherries. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel thatís smooth, but could be a bit more sour. Good beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is slightly hazy magenta with a small white head and good lacing. Ripe cherry skin, vanilla, graham crackers, jammy, dark berries, dark grapes, blueberries, and raspberries in the aroma. Taste is sweet jammy, dark fruits, blueberry, raspberry skins, biscuit, herbal, lemony, and cherry skin with a medium sour finish. Medium body with medium to soft carbonation. Really well balanced Kriek with great spice notes, fruits and sweetness.
