3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is brownish-violet. I can sense both cherry and some type of wood(or maybe cherry pit?) in the aroma. The taste is quite sour; not very sweet. The palate is strong bodied. This is an impressive beer; both a great kriek and an overall great beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep ruby with two fingers of mauve head and moderate lacing. Nose is cherry pie and red wine, oak and a little funk - which, rather unfortunately, combines as, well, diaper. Taste is tart cherry, dry red wine vinegar, and lemon, with just a little sweetness. Mouth feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a tart, crisp finish.
Pretty decent kriek. The taste is much better than the nose, which is a little muddled and reminiscent of nothing more than a full diaper. On the up side, thereís no cough syrup character, but to be honest itís not in the same league as _La Folie_.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from CBX. Deep magenta colored pour with a bubbly pink head. Aroma of jarred maraschino cherry sweetness, strawberry, like spice, almost ginger and custard. Very tame in sour and tartness, with cherry juice and fizzy cheerwine. Quick slightly acidic ending. Not awful, but thereís no much to it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is sour fruit and slight vinegar aromas. Taste is much the same with some sweet cherry and somewhat funky vinager body. Finishes pretty smoothly. Body is a bright red with a bubbly head that retains fairly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 Bottle. Poured red with a nose of cherry and oak. Flavor was cherries, oak, slightly astringent, slightly tart, slightly funky. Lots of carbonation on this one. Cherry flavor was slightly medicinal, but enjoyable still.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tipples. Pours bright ruby reddish almost fuscoa purple with a pretty pink head that fizzes out after about a minute. Aroma is dry wheat malt, sweet maraschino cherries, not a lot more here but pleasant enough. Flavor has no real sourness expected from the style, but not medicinal. Light tartness if I look hard for it. Seems like an amped up Sam Adams cherry wheat. Cherry juice and malt are dominant with almost a bit of a lager taste to it. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly slick, with low plus carbonation. Not an unpleasant or offensive beer by any means, but it's hard to believe that the same brewery made both this am La Folie.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tart cherry aroma come with this mostly clear velvet red brew with a white head. A tart sweetness with a light body come with this brew. Almost like coolaid with a bit of sour. This is a grear summer brew light crisp and clenses the pallet. Worth a try. And a buy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Ruby red pour, one finger of white head that quickly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma, barnyard funk, and cherry tartness. Taste, mild sour up front, which leads into some nice tart fruit character, finishes slight dry with some mild tartness. Overall, itís not most complex Kriek that Iíve tried but itís extremely refreshing stuff and very palatable, really stoked that we are getting these here now!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours pinkish red color with a finger and a half of light pink head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cherries and barnyard. Taste is a cherry sourness with an underlying light sweetness finishing with a bit of funky yeast. Medium bodied with some good carbonation. Overall, a quality brew, but the yeasty notes are a little too funky for my tastes.
