3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Pours an extremely clear red with small pink head. Slightly acidic and medicinal aroma, minor cherry. Taste is not what I expected. Very in-the-middle acidity and a good amount of earthiness. Fairly easy-drinking but not too exciting. Would like to taste more cherry in it.

Deep red body with a lite pink cap. Massive sour aroma and flavor. ...... my face got sucked insideout. Tart cherry, sugar, barn, more stuff. Cherry juice really comes out the longer this sits. BACTERIA! !! I can dig this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep red color with a slightly pinkish head. There is a touch of funk and fresh cherries in the nose. The flavor reminds me of cherry Kool-Aid and a Flanders red mixed together. This one didn’t work for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Ruby red in colour with medium carbonation. Sweetish aromas of cherry pie (crust included) and pale malt. More sweet cherry and vanilla in the mouth, but backed by some menthol notes. Starts off sweet, but picks up some tartness as it moves towards a dry finish. Sits somewhere between a New Glarus fruit beer and a traditional Belgian Kriek. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit on the simple side, but not bad overall.
