Sweet cherry flavor, mild acetic character, pretty easy to drink but not very complex or interesting. Thanks Randall, Zwanze Day 2013.

copestx (73) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of sweet cherries, oak and a little vinegar. Taste is massive amounts of juicy cherries, some cranberries, with the beer then opening up to a residual sourness. Definitely closer to a Rodenbach Alexander than a traditional lambic Kriek, but elements of both are here. Very easy to drink and very good overall.

Nocturne (1769) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Tap at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush. Amber/brown shade. Thin white head. Big cherry aroma, cough drops, tobacco, baking bread. Earthier taste with more cherries and vaguer fruits. Good stuff.

MarcoDL (3977) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016

caesar (6562) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016

Boutip (5829) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle: Poured a cloudy reddish color ale with a medium off-white foamy head with limited retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh cherry with vinous and oak notes is pretty interesting. Taste is a mix of cherry and vinous notes with some oak and some light residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Very well balanced overall with good level of complexity while retaining some good drinkability. There is more cherry in this then a regular Flander style beer which make it even more enjoyable.

77ships (7635) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2016
Thank you Joes! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2016-1. Red amber, little head. Nose is sweet cherry – massive with low complimentary sourness. Taste is massive rich, juicy sweet cherry with low complimentary sourness,…. This tastes like they used delicious sweet cherries & not sour ones as promised by the label (kriek = sour cherry), doesn’t 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.

(from 75cL bottle @ ZZT 2016-1. Thanks for sharing, joes!)
