Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas & Vova. 2015 bottle. Nice clear red with a pink head. Aroma of cherries, cherry pits, marzipan, some wood and some milky buttery touches. Sweetish-sourish-bitterish flavor with cherries and milky notes. Medium-bodied. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very thin mouthfeel, but a big massive tart cherry flavor. So addicting. It’s tart and puckering...but in such a good way. This is a fun one to drink.

Light ruby red appearance and head. Aroma of sour, fruit and alcohol. Thin, sour palate. It’s not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: pours with a large pink head that settles into a small head with a bit of density to it, the beer is a clear ruby red
Aroma: cherry, heavy cream
Taste: moderate sourness, cherry, some bitterness throughout, tart
Palate: soft carbonation, leaves mouth dry, medium mouthfeel, cherry aftertaste
Overall: decent beer, not overly powerful in any category except the nice ruby red color, not very sour or cherry, a good balanced kriek for a beginner to the style

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, dark red pour with the best head I’ve seen from a kriek ale (though it did fade quickly and leave little lacing). Nice notes of fresh, tart cherries, with nice earthy undertones. Could be a bit more sour and juicy but still a nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Bagby, Oceanside, 14/11/14.
Clear cherry red with a decent crimson swirl and edgeing.
Nose is tarte cherry, light acidic notes, straw, berry fruit, damp cloth.
Taste comprises cherry drops, sweeter notes than the nose suggests, less soured berry fruit, damp hay.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok fruit beer but nothing to get excited about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear pinkish red color with a pinkish colored head. Aroma is faint grass, cherry, sour, and tart. Taste is cherry, grass, weak sour, no tart. Decent beer but for a kriek I expected a lot more sour, this has no pucker factor to it at all, more like mixing cherries with champagne.
