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.

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.

750 mil bottle shared by Bruce at Mike’s, cool, tulip. Murky brown pink with a thin white rim. Lots of cherries, a little cough syrup, a bit of wood, sweet, maybe a touch estery, not bad. Medium body, gentle effervescence. Pretty strong sweet cherry, cherry pie, a touch medicinal and woodsy, sweet; sweet wish minimal bitterness and a strong cherry, slightly caramel finish.

Bottle #2010 aged 2.5 years. Poured reddish brown with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Sour cherry and spice aromas. As the light bubbles mingle, huge natural cherry taste with hints of oak. Very mellow. Glad I saved this thru my cancer treatments.
