Sample pour deep merlot color. Aroma comet through as sweet red fruits and sherry, slightly sour. Flavor is sweeter red wine with light sour finishing notes. Deep fruits of raspberry and cherry, crisp. Flemish-like sour. Drinkable and nice

I just want more. Itís a little underwhelming. Nice, but not bold. Maybe thatís what they were going for.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at New Belgium. Appearance: 1.5 fingers white-pink head, red-pink color, clear, great lacing.. Aroma: cherry. Palate: dry finish, light body, lively carbonation. Taste: tart cherry. Overall, a great specialty beer. Not something I would want to drink a whole bomber of, but definitely worth getting ahold of.

On Tap at Whole Foods Boise. Clear ruby red witha skiff of a head. Dry tart cherry aroma. Not so much as teh recent Chery Berlinner Iíve had. More subtle cherry flavor and and an other wise miled slightly tart body. Dry and much less pucker than I anticipated....or hoped

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hay Merchant, 2/11/14
Aroma: The nose is fruity and sweet, with some mild wood and tart notes
Appearance: Pours a clear, bright reddish-pink color with a fizzy pink head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly heavy sweet, thereís some wood/tartness, but it leans sweet
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a lively carbonation, and mildly tart finish
Iím was surprised this wasnít classified as a Lambic, but I guess fruit beer covers it. Anyway, this is a fairly sweet offering. Itís decent, but it could use a touch more tartness to balance it out. The sweetness just overwhelms everything else. Still, decent stuff.

25 jan 2014, bottle. Pink and clear. Nose is light cherries and straw malt and faint yeastiness. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Tastes like slightly tart cherry pie. Pretty good. Not very tart.

Bottle. Pours red with little head. Fruity with cherry, subtle and a little funk. A nice Kriek, was hoping for more but pretty good beer. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Itís clear, raspberry red with incredibly small, pink head and slight lace. Aroma of cherry, booze, some barnyard funk. The flavor opens with a bit of tanic bitterness, some syrupy dark fruit, and a slightly tart finish, just enough carb, but thins a bit as it warms. Crisp and refreshing. Yummy.
