From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice and bright ruby color with a very thing white quickly dissipating head. Nose is cherry, wine notes, slight wheat. Taste is slightly sour, then rounds out sweetly. Leaves a juicy mouthfeel and a pleasant aftertaste. Cool style.

Certainly not a bad beer, just not what I expected in a kriek. I like the flavor, I'd like a bit more sourness to this one for my taste

On tap at LC asheville. It’s good. NB just knows what they are doing with sours- so impressive for such a large scale brewing company. Pours a delicious pink color with a nice looking head. Sour and complex- cherries all the way through. Bright and not too sweet. Little bit funky. Best one of the day. Too bad it was Cary’s.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very slight cherries with a little bit of barnyard funk. Very little bit at that. Appearance is a beautiful deep red color with pink foam that laces nicely in the glass. Taste is tart, with a little bit of acetic end that lingers in the stomach. Not very much of the cherry remains after the souring process. An ok version of a kriek, not sweet like the fake tasting back sweetened versions, but also not interesting enough in sourness to rank with top tier examples from Belgium.

Pours ruby red with reddish head that quickly dissapates. Smell is sour funk, yeast and cherry. Taste is smooth notes of yeast, funk, cheese, and dry cherry. Light body medium carb.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy red color, moderate sized light pink head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is sweet cherry, light barnyard action, lightly acidic. Medium to light body, alcohol hidden well, quite sweet. Doesn’t have the usual house character of New Belgium beers (that I can’t stand). However, it’s too sweet and costs quite a bit for what came off as an ’intro to beer for someone that doesn’t like beer’ beer.

@ Cal Mar Hotel 16-3-13: Tydlig körsbär med en mycket snäll syrlighet. Inte för söt. Tack och lov.
