zacgillbanks (2571) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A bright hazy red coloured beer that explodes with a pink foamy head from the bottle. It has sweet cherry flavours followed by sharp tartness and creamy cherry cheesecake and black cherry yoghurt flavours on the finish.

Very nice tart kriek, slightly bitter, but really nice for the hit and miss nature of mikkler. I was happy to find this at the pretrero hill whole foods.

Deep pink pour with a bubblegum colored head. Aroma of yeast funk, old dough, citric acid and sour cherries. Tart cherry, yeast funk, lactic acid, lemons, and oak. Lots of carbonation and light body. Pretty enjoyable.

Pours deep ruby into a snifter. White head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Sour cherry aromas. Sour with stale cherry and mild cherry vinegar. Lasting chalky finish.

TheAlum (5950) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
375 ml bottle from Binnys SL (Chicago, IL). Cracked on a nice Friday evening. Pours a gorgeous glowing reddish pink hue, dark with just a kiss of haze, rich reddish and pink glow, berry crimson elements are quite striking. A frothy offwhite with a touch of pinkish hue head atop dies to a good filmy layer, laces well. Aromas are distinct cherries, a bit of vinegar. Tart and tannic skin with a bit of oak, straw, lactic acid. Lemony, a bit more funky than it’s counterparts. A touch of Luden’s as it settles. Straw, funk, and mellow soft malts. Initial is lighter end of the fold, firm cherries, cherry skin and fruit. Tartness, a but of red wine vinegar. Gentle sweetness, pie cherries, and a touch of Luden’s cough drops. Gentle sweetness, pie cherries, bready malts, straw and dryness into the middle. Oak, funk, lactic qualities as we work our way into the back. Dry and lactic on the palate at times, cherry sweetness and odd Luden’s quality at others. A bit lactic and dry into the finish. Oaky, gentle sweetness, lingering sharp lactic elements and bretty cobwebs. Overall, I thought it was solid, but those Cranberry and Redcurrant versions Derek shared recently were considerably stronger offerings.

jeremytoni (3011) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2013
From a bottle poured a dark ruby color with a good amount of head. Tart malty cherry flavor with a quick finish.

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2013
Ruby red, slightly cloudy, slightly pink head; aroma of cherries and funk; sour cherry flavour, very sour, but not overly sharp or tart; dry, slightly bitter finish; good kriek, would be improved immeasurably if accompanied by some food - preferably a sharp fruity dessert.
