3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a deep brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of sweet fruits dominated by cherries. It had a medium syrupy body. The taste was sweet on the tongue, with just a touch of sourness. It had a fairly smooth finish, decent.

Pours a reddish color with a small lacy head. Notes of fruit roll ups, wild yeast, funk, vanilla, and vinegar. Slightly artificial but good tangy finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark red pour with foamy white head. Good tartness upfront with distinct cherry flavors. Dry tart finish. Good, perhaps a bit 1 dimensional.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours strawberry-red and clear with soapy head. Aroma has arteficial cherry, light strawberry notes and mildly acidy. Taste has strong cherry essence, little acidy apple, berries and leather. Palate is strongly carbonated and acidy, but quite light and freash. This has distinct lambic-character, but it should be more acidy in my opinion.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma just slightly off somehow (whiffs of light brown cereal) but everything else is utter perfection.. lingering head, bubble-bath carbonation and softness, sublime sourness/cherry alternation and opposition (like two lines of a Bach fugue) going all the way to the finish in a swirling chord of malty....damn, this stuff is good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at esbls. Kind of pink and clear. Light cherries in the aroma but not a lot. Some earth. Something kind of like mushrooms.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heldere rode paarse kleur met paars schuim. Cassis kleur. Iets zurig, verder zoetige kersengeur. Smaakt zoetig als een cassis met champagne. Verder beetje flauw.

I liked this. Definite cherry appearance. A combo sweet/sour flavor that alternates with every sip. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with a dark red color, exact color of cherries, and is topped with weak head. The aroma was a bit disappointing (luckily the only disapointing thing here). I expected a pleasant cherry aroma, but I got a slight acid smell reminding me of cheap wine. The taste was a completely different story - sweet and slightly hoppy towards the end. I could definitely taste some cherries. One of the best krieks so far, sweet (not too much) and easy to drink.
