3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a hazy amber brown color witha m edium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have a tart cherry fruitiness, mild acidity, sweet caramel malt, black cherry juice. The flavor is less tart than the nose. I would hope for more sour character. OK, not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks decent; cloudy amberish brown with lively carbonation and ample foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; tart cherries and oak. Tastes like it smells, only not as robust. Average on the palate. Decent beer, but it smells better than it tastes.

Bottled 750ml@VWPBF bought from brewery
Deep red color, tiny pinky head. Lagerish caramel and some cherry in the nose. Medium-bodied. "Kriek Lager". Cherryish flavor with some caramel, not much caramel. Quite easy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: The body is murky with a reddish hue with hints of brown throughout. The head is short and quickly settles into a thin light tan coating with a foamy ring.
Aroma: Musky cherries is the big aroma, semi-sweet with no hints of tart or sour. Not a huge fan of this.
Taste: Ah again musky cherries, it’s like a basement with cherry flavor. There’s some toasted oak flavors, but no sourness. Not a fan.
Palate: Medium bodied, a bit thin, with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is the worst sour I can think of. There’s no sour, just musky sweet cherry. There’s nothing about this I enjoy, at least it’s not badly priced.

Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Colour is an appropriate red-orange. Aroma is exactly like canned cherry pie filling, and once I had that impression in my head, it was difficult to enjoy this beer. Feel is not very full, not really tart enough. Tasted artificial to a degree.

Good. Pours red with decent off-white head, no retention or lace. Aroma is full of sour cherries. This one is smooth in the mouth, with a dry / tart finish that made me pucker.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby red color with a pinkish white head. Cherry nose with lots of sugar sweetness. This is a sweet beer with a strong tart cherry flavor. Sweet/tart with some oak and vanilla under all that cherry. Better than I expected.
