TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, 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.

a_cross (593) - 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.

wlajwl (3767) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Aroma is tart/sour fruit and a small hint of mustiness. The flavor is very tart fruit, an undercurrent of malts and a small hint of sweetness/mostly sour finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle, thanks Evan. Pours deep bright cherry Ted with a minimal white head and lace. Nose is cherry pits, oaky vinegar, cherry pie filling. Flavor is mellow at first, segued into some sharper acetic acid, and lots of stems and pits. Sharp bitter finish which is a bit offputting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
