Bottle 11/22/12: Bright translucent amber with a pink head. Sour and tart aroma with oak, tanins, and a little cherry. Crisp taste, lively mouthful. Oak, woody tartness, and sour cherries. The tart lingers... pretty acidic and dry. Some raspberries in the tail. Nice.

Thanks to Kraddel. 750 ml. fair chunk consumed. Pours clear red bright raspberry syrup with no head. Nose is sweet cherries & some raspberry, more sugary sweet tan actual fruit, tad syrup-like, funk is very light, tad wood. Taste is light cherry, raspberry syrup, sweeter than actual fruit, light malt, iron, touch candy, sweetish, light wood, sourness is almost no there. Body is a touch thin, light iron & syrup. As a fruit beer this is pretty good. The constant use of lambiek-style on the label is just ridiculous, this just isnít in the same ballpark. This is closer to sweetened Lindemans than anything else in the lambiek world in my opinion. Still on its own, this is a nice beer.

Clear red brown pour with a thin quickly fading white head. Strong tart cherry, oak, and funk aroma. Taste is tart cherry, vinous, damp wood, and earthy funk. Very dry finish with an oaky aftertaste. Really nice beer.

Pours reddish brown with fizzy white head out of bottle. Aroma of berries with funky yeast. Smooth flavor of strawberries, raspberries, and oak with a sour zest. Excellent beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"our batch was between 6.5-6.9%. multiple krieks blended, oaked, and raspberries added, so itís a framboise kriek = friek. huh? get it get it? anyway, this beer is freaking amazing. the cherry, oak, and raspberry are in perfect harmony...you can smell and taste each clearly but none are too overpowering. the aroma is vibrant fruit with a lively mouthfeel. near mouth puckering tartness and sweetness from the fruit expertly balanced. I will buy this whenever i see it."

I brought this to the Pre-Ffej of July Party.

A - Pours murky red with a small one finger tall white head leaving little to no lacing down the glass. It was carbonated at least.

S - Smells of your typical kriek but with a bit less sweetness. Hints of cherries, dulled funk, light sourness, and wet oak. It was pretty funky initially but it faded as it warmed up and allowed some of the sweet fruits to come through.

T - Starts off with a nice dose of tart cherries slowly giving way to a mix of dry oak tannins, dulled fruity sweetness, and light horse blanket funk. Based on the nose I thought this one might be pretty funky but it isnít. Finish is a mix of light sweetness and dulled sourness, lingering for a short period of time. Pretty good.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Light tartness in the feel, lingering through the finish.

O - I enjoyed this one. The flavors worked well together and it never got to the point of being overpowering. I didnít detect much of the raspberries but it still had plenty of cherries to make up for it.
