2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a light ruby red with near white pink head. Very fruity sweet aroma of cherries . Decent flavor, quite a sweet fruit beer, not sour at all, a bit a of Belgian earthy flair in the finish but not enough to call it funk. Really quite drinkable tho, more fruit juice like of a beer.
