3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful ruby-purple beer with a frothy pink head. Prominent cherry aroma, warm spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon). Tannic and lactic acidic aroma. Flavour is nicely structured, a bit of lactic and acetic acid. Vineous quality. Cherry flavour, spice, with a nice tart and fruity finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sparkling clear ruby body topped by a foamy small pink head. The aroma is sour cherries and light nuty malt. Sour cherry with a fakish cherry flavor, cherry syrup I guess. Really not very good, tastes kind of off to me, a bad funk rather than the good funk that I enjoy so much. Very stringent finish. Not very good. I am dissapointed as the others from this brewery are quite good.

One of a six-different-beers-present, normally I would only buy one of those cherry-beers for using in some cooking-recipe. This one tastes like cassis-lemonade, only the pink head reminds me that this is beer.

In a bottle labelled "Echt Kreikenbier" but it seems to be the same stuff. Deep dark red with a sour cherry aroma and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Flavour is more of the same and quite a bit more simple then I would of expected, by the end of the bottle I was a bit dissapointed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks raspberry red pouring out of the bottle. In the glass itís somewhat darker with a pinkish purple head. The nose here is interesting with a bit of cherries (of course) along with some sort of unidentifiable funk thatís not the normal horseblanket thing you expect in sour beers--not really bad but interesting. Flavorwise this comes across a bit mild but with hints of cask wood, clove, nutmeg and raisin. Slightly sweet and just a little bit tart. Slightly watery on the palate. Not bad but thereís cherry beers Iíd rather drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful ruby hue with a small rapbery colored head. Aromas of yeast and cherries. MOuthfeel is medium bodied with flavors of ummm.... cherries not as tart as many sour ale tend to be. A little dry, with little aftertaste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is beyond a doubt, one of the finest beers to include fruit that I have ever tasted and I am suprised that the ratings arenít much higher. Pours with a lovely ruby color that positively sparkles; a little pink head that crackles like rice crispy treats ... plenty of carbonation here. The aroma is pure choke cherries with tons of sourness. Nice acridity and sourness that puckers. The fruit flavor creates a nice balance. A lingering malt flavor on the tongue. Positively brilliant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is tart, fruity and sour. A medium bodied kriek. Tart and fruity with a nice malt backbone. Acidic and a little harsh perhaps. Very smooth though. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
