Bank-account-breaking 12.7 oz. export bottle - Just won the lottery, so I thought I would try this out. It’s a fun journey, but when it’s all said and done the flavors don’t meld well for me--quite pointed and rough. Mostly sour and dry. Looks like I’m going against the grain on this one.

martjoobolut (2800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
0,375L bottle, BB 2035 (from Koht). Pours red with pink head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, sour, cherries, some funk and some sweetness. Flavor is sour, cherries, acidic, some black currant, acidic. Finish is sour and acidic with some dry bitterness. Carbonation is rather high. Drinkability is ok. Overall: good, but feels bit simple.

Mooi rozerood van kleur met babyroze schuimkraag. Heerlijk aroma en smaken van kersen, confituur, hout, heel klein beetje vineus. Heel lekker fijn zuurtje. Niet te zuur, net genoeg. Lucht plakkerige droge afdronk. Zeer goeie kriek.

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Jun. ’16. A 0.375 l bottle opened with a big pop just by twisting the cork cage to the half. Messed up my ceiling. Beautiful hazy dark cherry aroma with compact creamy big head. Very nice, fruity, sour cherry aroma. Flavor was quite sour, too, but not extremely so. Cherry dominated, with a little bit of yeast. A bit metallic, too, although that note seemed to be obvious only upon the first few sips. Medium bodied with moderately long cherry finish. Very fruity and balanced, only a tad of real lambic felt directly but obviously it blended nicely in this juicy Kriek. Very nice one!

375 bottle from the Park Royal. Pours a lovely ruby red color with a red cherry head. Aroma is sour, dry, lots of cherry and some barrels. Taste is tart, dry, with cherries and some barrel notes. Tart, sophisticated cherry aftertaste. Would prefer this beer to be less acidic. Very good, though.

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Ale Alpharetta bottle share. Pours hazy, barely translucent cherrywood with a thick, pink-buff head. Aroma delivers a firm note of sour cherry and apple. Flavor is quite sour, if not make-your-face-do-calisthenics sour, featuring notes of apple and cherry with a malty underpinning. Mouthfeel offers firm body and lively, sassy fizz. Enjoy!
