illidurit (2286) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Pours dark orange with an off-white head. Lovely sweet cherry aroma, black cherries and occasional maraschino. Super acetic, warming acidity, sweet cherries and some big funky notes including substantial cheesiness/lacto. Not as sour as the Pomelambic, more malty as well.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle. Unlabeled bottle with cap that denotes it as the north by northwest kriek. Poured into my Lost Abbey tulip glass a dark murky red color with a rosy collared head. The nose is acidic with cherry undertones. The smell is really fruity and nice. Fairly sour with a tart cherry flavor. Some acetone undertones as well. Overall, this is a cool attempt at a kriek. The fruit is nice and the sourness is nice.

(375ml bottle 2006 vintage thanks to Walt) cloudy reddish-orange with tons of active carbonation and bubbles. Nose of cherry pie filling, cinnamon, and wood. Taste is very tart cherries, light astringency/acidic, and apple cider vinegar. Over carbonated and super tart.

madmitch76 (22315) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
10th October 2008. GABF. Cloudy brown beer. Fresh cherry ale - a little sour but it is really spot on and not overdone. Dry crisp cherry finish. Refreshing.

Perhaps my single favorite beer in Texas - Barton Kriek seperates itself from popularized sugar-bombs found at tap-rooms nationwide. Pours a slightly murky rose color with a full, long lasting off-white head. Aroma is of sour cherries and sweet malt. Refreshingly tart cherry flavor - not overpoweringly sour in the slightest bit. Mouthfeel is carried by relatively high carbonation levels, expected for the style. I could drink these all night until a cab or uniformed officer came for me.
