Draft at SB. Pours a murky bright rubied garnet with a dense and fizzy light pink head that goes away after a little while. Nice sweet forward fruity nose, like a sweeter cherry pie (not a tangy pie cherry so much, at least aromatically). Creamy, fizzy medium body. Very bright carb. Tangy sweet pie cherries and cherry pie filling mixed, both sweet and tart. Nice crisp finish for how sweet the mid palate is.

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 2, 2014
On tap at TAPS. Pours deep purple red with a pink head. Aroma is black cherry, yogurt and hard candy. Flavor is like eating Chobani cherry yogurt. The acidity and fruit character are similar, that is to say it’s mild and sweet but with a lactic bite. Not what you want from lambic.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2014
12.7oz bottle, thanks to Shawn Y. Bottled 2013/07/10. Mostly clear dark red color. Thin ring of little pink white head. Leaves some loose dots of lace. Oaky, cherry nose. Nice tart cherry flavor. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate sour. Some woody tart cherry tingle in the back of the palate briefly during the finish. Medium to bigger body. Kind of a slick, oily texture. Smooth, kind of crisp light carbonation. Some nice cream flavor in the finish, complements the cherry nicely. A solid, sweeter kriek... A more dry finish would be nice, though. Syrupy sweetness lingers on the palate in the finish for a bit longer than I’d like. Would probably be awesome to pair with the right kind of cheese, though.. Grows on me a bit as I go. A solid, tasty one to sip on.

jhamp9 (1048) - Corinth, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Tap. Deep red with a fluffy pink head. Aroma is sour cherry, oak, and funk. Taste is sour cherry, wood, spice, lacto. Nice pucker. Dry palate. Really nice.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
12.7 ounce bottle from Beer Run, opened 8/3/14. Pours a clear dark red color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tart cherries, pepper, earth, citrus. The taste is tart cherries, earth, citrus, pepper. Medium bodied, dry, slight lingering tartness.

Bule (756) - California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a dark cherry color with a bit of head. Nice mild sourness and a good amount of cherry. Sourness overpowers a little.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle @ home. Nice dark red color, small off-white to pinkish head. Aroma is cherries, a hint of sweetness as well as sourness. Taste cherries, lightly chemical, pretty sour, sour red fruit. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but I don’t really like it either. You know, actually it gets worse and I’m starting to dislike it more and more. It tastes more and more artificial to me.

2014.08 - gents bierfestival - wat mij betreft het meest verrassende bier van de dag (in positieve zin) - prachtig rood, lichtrozig schuim - geur : krieken en zoets - mond : krieken, zoet en zuur (mooi in evenwicht) - top !

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2014
Pink head, fast gone over beautiful deep-garnet beer. Real cherries, if still some uneasy sweetness. Bit of cherry kernels, with the smell of bitter almonds. Hint at cherrysweets, but mainly nice kriekensap. Nice, if little "beery" or "lambicky" extras. Dry, even dry-out effect. Good, but in comparison with the kriek in the V.H. lagertanks, this is still some distance from the real thing.
