3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish and bright with a small white head. The aroma has cherries, pepper, vanilla and some sourness. It has a medium crisp body with a minor amount of spritzy carbonation. The flavor starts with tartness, cherries, citrus and vinegar sourness along with some minor oak. the finish is clean and refreshing for an 8.5% beer. Nice sour.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A short, slowly fading, frothy white head falls to a solid ring over a clear, vibrant tangerine body displaying several streamers of very fine carbonation, solid falling arcs and dots of lacing on each sip
A kaleidoscope of seamlessly integrated tropical fruit, melon, stone fruit, and white wine complexities embossed by a mildly creamy funk over strong acidity and sourness on a cohesive, softly carbonated, creamy-slick medium body offering a solid coating of acid and cutting dryness leading to residuals of the previously mentioned components... very enjoyable

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy crimson. A wispy pink head appears after some vigorous pouring but fades away quickly. The bouquet is a blend of balsamic and white vinegar, soft cherry and caramel, like cherry cola. There’s a little more cola in the flavor, too, with brown sugar and caramel. Balsamic vinegar settles in after that, bringing with it tart/sweet cherries. Not too complex, but good. Carbonation is a little low for style. Medium-light body. Acidity is nice.

Such a great beer...glad I picked up a few bottles! This one has some qualities of a few of the best Kriek’s I’ve had the pleasure to taste. Cherry skin, graham cracker, caramel, brown sugar, Macintosh apples, yeast, vanilla, oak, and berries. So complex and delicious! Get one if you can!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 1/24/15 from a 750mL swing-top bottle at Swilliams’ bonfire, obtained from the group EtF trade. Pours hazy pink tinted orange with an average white head that leaves average bubbly lace. The nose is very sour, cherry, very funky cherry pit, some cherry pie spice. The flavor very sour but balanced, with fresh cherry, almondy cherry pit, and some cherry pie spice and crust. The body is medium and tannic with lively carbonation and a long spiced and sour cherry finish.

Shared by BDR; thanks Brad. Some yeast aroma. Cherry flavor, and it is tart. Yeast in the flavor as well. Sour cherry flavor, mixed with the moderately sour, balsamic flavors of the underlying beer.
