3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a dark translucent ruby color with a large head. Aroma of musk and sour cherries. Didn’t taste much of the cherries, just a fair bit of funky fruit with a weirdly bitter aftertaste. Not exceedingly sour. Every sip tasted a bit different, sometimes in a good way. Not something I could drink a whole bottle of, but interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
37.5cl bottle at CBC, London. It pours clear ruby with a big light pink head. Aroma is funky and sour, with light fruity cherry notes. Taste is sweet-acidic with good sourness. Once again, light sour cherries presence. Mouthfeel is kinda thin with lively carbonation. Overall, sour level and balance are quite good. This beer, though lacks in depth and complexity. Some more funkiness and a more pronounced cherry presence might help a lot.

I was surprised to see Mikkeller trying his hand at some sours...exciting. Pours a bright and deep ruby red with a nice white head, great retention too. Medium body, slick and oily, nice carbonation. Strong sour cherry note upfront, nice tartness throughout. Some funkiness, notes of hay, wood, with a lingering grapefruit note. Finishes with a juicy dark cherry note and undertones of plum, lemon, and a lingering grapefruit bitterness. Once again, Mikkeller doesn’t disappoint. A great kriek, surprisingly strong with the alcohol only being slightly present. Looking forward to trying the Spontonale!

375 ml bottle - pours clear ruby red with thin fine white pinkish head. Aroma of rosehip tea, raspberries, boisé and other earthy impressions. Light to medium body with medium sourness yet some bitterness and nice dry finish.. Taste is cherries... I prefer the original Krieks.
