beerplace (576) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
375ml bottle from Park Royal, BB May-12-2020. Pours a murky dark cherry color with a rose-ish head. Aroma sour and sweet dark cherries, similar to cherry kompot. Taste is sour, semi-dry, with cherry notes. Very sophisticated balance just right on the edge between sourness and sweetness. Dark cherry, dry aftertaste. Very good beer.

robinvboyer (4064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2016
Solid sour cherry, some light cherry pie notes and some lactic funky sourness. Good carb, nice refreshing mouth feel. Easy drinking, refreshing, yet tart with some great fruit. Impressive considering some of the swill I’ve had from these guys.

Tranquillity (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2016
Bottled from lcbo. Slightly hazy dark red body, with a medium pink head. The aroma is rally complex, with cherries, peach, raspberry and cork. The taste is very tart, but with a healthy dose of raspberry, cherry and cucumber.

TheJester (2443) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
375 mL green bottle. Beautifully sour. Seems to be raspberries, as well as cherries. A candy like (sweet tarts) quality near the finish. Really good.

olio (8998) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2016
375 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Bottled on 10.07.2013.
Pours hazy dark red color with a small pinkish head. Subtle cherries and hints of raspberries on the aroma, faint yeast notes. Flavor is sweetish with some raspberries, cherry sourness and yeast funkiness. Nice sourness, but a tad too sweet for my taste.

Spab (3287) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
375 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clearish ruby colour with average pink-tinged head. Aroma is tart cherries, grape must and some funkiness. Flavour has lots of tart cherries, modest funkiness, ripe plum and grape must. Some acidity and lingering tartness in the finish. Nice.

Listigovers (854) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Very cheesy Lambic aroma with light cherry scent. Ruby red and pink head. Nice flavour, good bit of balsamic, lots of funk and moderate acid. Not biting but with good tartness, cherries make it very drinkable. Nothing syrupy here, good sparkling light mouthfeel. Very tasty.

ciocanelu (1069) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Clear ruby color with pink head. Aroma has really nice sour cherries and cherry pits. Taste is also really fruity and sour, really natural tasting. Light, effervescent body. Overall it’s a quite good kriek. It doesn’t have any lambic funk but it’s really fruity and sour.

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle at home. Deep ruby with dark pink fizz that disappears immediately. Lots of cherries, bitter almonds, wood, some glue, hay, dust, sour milk, sour dough, fermenting leaves, soft bay leaves. Under medium sour, light sweet and bitter. medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not a bad kriek overall.
