yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2008
35.5 cL bottle. Pours dark redish towards murky with a lacing faint pink head. Light sulphorish dry cherry aroma. Flavour starts extremely sweet cherry flavoured and gains a solid acidic to citric touch along the way. Solid cherry flavour with a mild cripsy mouthfeel. Ends with a lingering cherry aroma reaching the back of the nose. Nice for what it is.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
A red beer with a huge lasting pink head. The aroma is sweet and totally dominated by ripe cherries. The flavor is sweet and also dominated by cherries but with notes of wood. The end is dry more than sour, so calling it a kriek is a little far out.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy dark red with a somewhat rough, pinkish head.. Distinct cherry aroma. Medium body with sweet’n’sour cherry notes - but definitely different from a Belgian fruit lambic. 260107

omhper (23731) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2005
Bottled. Deep clear red. Sweet cherry aroma. Balsamic sweet cherry flavour with some grape stone bitterness. A hint of fresh acidity, but sweetness takes the upper hand, and disturbs the nice flavours.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Very cherry beer, not sharp at all. Easy to drink but not as spectacular as the Apricot beer from this brewer.

yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2007
Bottled. A clear, bright red beer with a pinkish white head. Almond and cherry in both aroma and flavor, as well as some sugary sweetness in the aroma. The cherry feels artificial, and is very dominant in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. (061229)
