UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Massively over-carbed, despite having zero head. Pretty body. Fresh raspberries initially in the nose, turns sulfuric, then back to fruit. Taste is quite nice but subdued. Seems slightly watered down. Gimme a more concentrated version and my cheeks will turn red. Just had this again (3/23/13) and enjoyed it much more than last time. Fruit is more pungent, not as aggressively carbonated, tasty.

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 a reddish brown with a thin white head. Quite effervescent. Aroma big on cherries and raspberries, oak and funk. Taste follows, raspberry forward, slightly sweet upfron with a funky sour note, finished dry and oaky. Solid.

roxtersoxter (338) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2014
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.

750ml from Papago. Pours a clear cranberry red with zero head. The nose is tart cherries, vanilla and light lacto. The taste is sour raspberries, unripe cherries, earthy funk and woody vinegar. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Nice. 3.7

JDBaker11058 (1334) - 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.

Bottle share at RBAG. Pour is pink with minimal white head. Aroma is nice Brett funk, sour tart cherries, and some light sweetness. Taste is prickly carbonation, mild tartness up front, followed by some cherry fruit sweetness, finish is slight acidic.
