Sampled at the Paramount Café Beer Festival, pre-GABF on September 28, 2011, Denver, CO. Pours read with a light pink head. Very nice tart aroma of cherries and lemon zest. Nice sour, but well balanced, taste again of cherries and lemons. Very good.

Falling Rock GABF 2012. Pinkish amber with a thin white head. Sour dark sweet cherry aroma, with a certain syrupy darkness. Flavor is nice and tart and lightly sour with firm dark cherry notes and barreled sourness. Not too sweet or sour. Very nicely balanced.

Aroma is pretty light cherries are the most prevalent. Taste is very much cherry up front, then it gets pretty tart after that. I really like this beer very balanced for a sour. Really like this offering.

For what NB set out to do, it's solid and they fulfilled their mission. As a fruit-forward beer, however, it's not as good as Founders' raspberry ale or Two Beers' High Divide cherry. The problem I believe is that it's too sweet, and doesn't have sufficient maltiness in backbone. As such, it borders just a little too close to wine cooler territory in flavor. B-

Cherry red pour from the bottle. Sour cherry aroma. Long lasting fruit flavors with a mild sour finish. Very drinkable. Very nice.

generic fruit beer seems an odd category for this...
"Boon Kriek is pretty good in my book, but nothing special. Rounding it out with a "full bodied golden ale" seemed to be just the ticket. the mouthfeel is smooth, soft, and just right, and it leads right into a seriously complex sour cherry flavor, and bittersweet finish. the aroma is a little underwhelming, just like the dark kriek-especially for how good the flavor is. pours straight up red. i really like both their krieks, but am still questioning the frequency i’ll be drinking these rather expensive beers.
