3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Bright ruby body with a foamy pink-tinged crown. Aroma and flavour are tart cherries, nice enough, but missing greater depth of spice and sour for me. Just okay.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at RBAG 2013. Red pour, pretty clear looking, the cap recedes quickly leaving a thin ring of pinkish foam. Very light lambic/sour notes in teh nose, some cherry. Taste has tart cherries, quite dry and light, fades out quickly leaving only a trace of sourness. Overall, drinkable, but too light an example.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into wine glass. Pours a very clear red with a moderate light pink head. Aroma is sour and cherry, slight vinegar. Light sour and cherry flavor up front. Not too strong on the sour front. Mellow cherry flavor. Lightly carbonated with a clean finish. I like more of a sour punch but still a very good fruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear red with medium pink head. Little lacing, light body, low carbonation, and light tart cherry aroma. Taste is tart cherry. A richer cherry taste would have been better for me. For $22 a bomber I will pass on this every time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from 2013. Pour looks like a big glass of red kool-aid with pink head. Smells slightly tart, mostly like cherry. Taste is strong cherry, slight sourness, some soapy character. Kind of interesting, great summer night beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cherry in color, bubbly, little head. Nose is of dark fruits, cherry, some wood, lemon and grass. Taste is mildly tart, sweet, cherry stands out, but not much else going on. Rather dry finish. Was good overall, but not worth $18

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours lovely clear, purple-red with thin pink head. Aroma big tart ripe cherry, some earth and funk. Taste / mouthfeel less impressive than appearance/nose. Earthy, somewhat tart cherry taste, with thin texture, medium body soft carbonation, short cherry finish. Overall: smell and appearance beautiful, taste and palate so-so.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured clear garnet with a swirly dusting of pink-tinted head. The aroma picked up sour cherries, lemon rind, leather, and oak over berry and biscuity notes.. an odd splash of white spices and fruity hops came through with warmth.. struck me as a little sweeter than it needed to be.. I loved the kriek character. The flavor found tart lemon, sour cherries, oak, and prickly carbonation on the tip of the tongue.. the middle was muddled with nondescript malts and a lot of dryness (the drink never really found purchase on the tongue).. finished with dry, tart cherry skins, oak, and spicage. Very dry on the palate with moderate acidity and cherry/oak tartness.. carbonation didnít flow consistently through the palate.. nice kriek character was left hanging on the finish when the body dropped out. Overall an interesting brew, but I didnít love it.
