Idiosynkrasie (5156) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy red colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, pink-ish off-white head. Intense morello cherry aroma with slightly artificial touch, hints of sherbet. Taste is artificial, sweet-and-sour, hints of sherbet, sweet artificial cherry aroma. If you like this kind of taste (I do), then it’s not bad - but it surpresses any hint of beer (if there is); anyway; I’d prefer to find this taste exclusively where it belongs - in fruit-gums.

33 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy reddish/pink with a small to medium pink head. Aroma is quite a lot like the dutch "gevulde speculaas/spijs", some sweet candy and syrup. Taste is very sweet with sweet candy, syrup, some fruitiness, sugar. No sourness, funk or anything that resembles a kriek. Medium body and carbo. Awful.

Bottle:   When I drink this I think to myself, what would a beer taste like if there were ever to be a cherry relish, instead of pickle relish.   A little sweet, a little tart, some cherry, but for some reason when the cherry relish was made, they left a wee bit of pickle relish in there.   Now you have Ter Dolen Kriek.

On tap at Grumpys NE pours a cleanish pink/red with a large pink head. Aroma reminds me of a jar of maraschino cherries. Tastes like cherry fruit punch juice, maybe a cherry soda because of the carbonation. It’s not terrible but certainly not what I look for in a kriek.

Tap. Pinkish pour with a big frothy white head. Very sweet cherry - and cough drop like - aroma and taste. Really sweet. Medium to fuller palate. Meh - okay.

Good nose, taste is good but after taste is medicinal. Color is hazy red...I really do like the smell though!

On tap at Grapejuice. Pink pour with a white head. Aroma is cough syrup and sugar. Taste is sweet, bottled cherries, and a little tart.

Nope. Take a cherry cough drop, melt it, and add a little carbonated water. Boom you have this beer. Needs some tart balance. Ugh. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Looks like caugh syrup. Pinkish red with a pink, foamy head. Smells and tastes like cherry pie filling. A little malt in the finish.

This pours a pinkish/red color with a slight, light pink head. There is a strong aroma of sweet cherries. The taste is smooth to the point where there is almost no carbonation. There isn’t much to let you know this is a beer, as it drinks and taste more like a cherry desert drink. Drinks very smooth and tastes delicious. This is either a hit or miss with the beer geek crowd.
