3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours quite rose with a pink tinged head. Aroma is cherry, but more like cough syrup than kriek. Med body or so. It is a little tart, but there’s a lot of sugar, and the cherry is muddled in the mix. Actually it’s cherry, so that’s a plus. It’s lightly, barely, tart, so that’s sort of a plus. But there’s just too much sugar for it to be pleasing.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours red with a huge pink head and a cherry aroma. There is a very sweet cherry flavor with nothing else. Not a traditional kriek by any means.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured eerie reddish-brown with a light ring of pink-tinted head. The aroma picked up very sweet cherry juice and a touch of oak.. smelled like candy. The flavor found similar.. candied, mostly sweet cherries at the core, with light cherry tartness and more sticky sugars extending outward.. finished very sweet and cherry-y. Lighter-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. tasty, but too much like candy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Intense cherry flavors. Cloudy pinkish red with a pink bubbly head. Tons of cherry, very sweet and syrupy. Thick and cloying. Not as horrible as I expected from the reviews, but definitely a small glass maybe with or as desert.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy red orange, pink orange head. Sulphur overwhelms the caramel malts , bittersweet cherry (amarena). Sweet and caramel taste, with malts trying to balance the syrup-like cherry taste. Not bad, afterall, if you love sweet drinks.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of a strange combination of cherry popsicles and BBQ sauce. It pours a hazy/cloudy brownish-orange with a small beige head. The flavor tastes like a overly sweet melted cherry popsicle with a slightly tart finish. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I’m a sucker for cherry beers, even if it comes across as candy-ish or artificial, but this is too artificial and sugary.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a re dish pink color with aromas of wet wood, cherries and some light barn yard. Flavors are the same sweet and sour cherries with some light funk that was aging on its own.
