Great tart crisp fruit flavors and nose. A little heavy on the wood. Not one for the cellar. Great aperitif with some cheese.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
Appearance: Pours similar to a dark pink glass of passion fruit juice. Only a few white swirls, but otherwise no head.

Aroma: Funky soaked barrel, red wine,sweet ripe cherry.

Taste: Sour cherry, light red wine vinegar and tannic barrel notes.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: The most tart and enjoyable Kriek I’ve had. Very well done.

Mortlach (1795) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2013
17/02/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Rossastra con riflessi arancia, schiuma leggerissima bianca che scompare immediatamente. Al naso sentori di frutta rossa, note citriche e acetiche, non un granché. In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, piuttosto sgraziata, con un acetico importante, non molto secca e pulita nel finale. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Non all’altezza delle aspettative.

GTAEgeek (1792) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy orange, with almost no head. The aroma is bitter oranges, with some cherries and vanilla. Very sour, with some fruity sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, and a little clingy. Overall, this is a nice, fruity beer, but lacks the subtlety, balance, and body of a great sour ale.

JDBaker11058 (1771) - Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Appearance: clear pour (initially) the color of sparkling grapefruit juice; quickly vanishing, fizzy pink head; extremely active carbonation jets rising like a reverse rainstorm, feeding a small puddle of fizzy bubbles on the surface. Aroma: brightly tart, with sour cherries and raspberries, a bit of pomegranate, nice oaky notes, with a low undertone of brett and worn leather. Taste: cherries and raspberries up front, sweet, tart and sour, with some light chocolate, vanilla, wood, and herbal notes. Finish: lightly dry, with a lingering, delicately sharp sour note that scrubs the tongue, leaving only a hint of stone fruit and a longing for the next sip. Notes: Gone all too quickly. A magnificent beer. Reminiscent flavor and aroma profile of a Rodenbach Grand Cru, but with a lighter, tarter, sharper body. Wonderful.

zizzybalubba (1749) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2011
On tap at the Odell tasting room in Ft. Collins, CO during GABF week 2011 (actually listed that day as Odell Firkin #38: Cask-Conditioned Friek). Reddish-brown pour with some tiny bubbles. Tart and very sour smelling aroma. The taste is sour but plenty smooth with lemon, tart cherry, and oak. A very nice sour.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle at Cole’s; Thglassanks to Dak. Poured into a Campus glass: Pours murky tawny/strawberry, like extremely dark grapefruit juice. Head is thin and fizzy, like sodapop. Short lived head dissipates completely, and leaves no lacing. Nose is tart cherry, rhubarb, and some grassy hay/straw notes. Some leather and funk, though this is muted. Flavours of tart berry, oak, nice lambic-esque notes here... Lacks the body and "punch" of a Cantillon or 3 Fonteinen, but a very respectable American pretender.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle share at Proof. Deep amber pour with virtually no head. Aroma of cherry, lactic acid, cheese funk, oak and citrus. Flavor is sour cherry and dark fruits, lactic acid, sharp sourness throughout with underlying caramel malts and sweetness. Pretty nice.

JPDurden24 (1672) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours an amber color with a thin white head. Tart cherry with a nice wood flavor and some sweetness. A nice cherry of sour and tart flavor. It’s pretty good.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2011
Sample at Houston April BA tasting. Fruity tart nose. Nice blend of cherries and raspberries work well together. A little sweet and well carbonated. Thinnish body. Overall a well made beer that makes me want to get a bottle of this.
