Tap at Congregation. Cherry aroma. No head. Red body with attractive translucence. Taste is cherry and not too vinous (I don’t like vinous) but a little. Thin body like wine with good carbonation like champagne.

JDBaker11058 (1309) - Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Appearance: deep, clear cherry red with a creamy, light tan/pink head. Aroma: strong aroma of cherry cough syrup, a hint of tootsie roll, vanilla, and oak. Taste: sweet and tart cherry, some prune/plum, a bit of chocolate and wood, with a hint of funk (maybe brett, maybe lacto). Finish: like a sweet-tart candy, with a bit of zip from the carbonation. Notes: Certainly not the best kriek I’ve ever had, but definitely not bad. A little too funky right out of the tap, but significantly improving as it warms up. On draught at Victoria’s Gastropub in Columbia, Maryland.

Pours hazy dark red with a foamy white head. Smells of red fruits and has the aroma of... cherries, syrup, vanilla and malts. Taste is medium sweet and heavy sour, long finish. Nice texture, refreshing.

freretoc (731) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 1, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 25cl, couleur rouge, mousse moyenne, grosse effervescence, une bière avec une acidité mal équilibrée, limite citronnée qui ne fait pas équilibre avec la cerise, ça pique fort et c’est pas agréable.

Renobob (665) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 31, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Un peu déséquilibrée à mon, trop acide, peu de corps. Arômes et saveur de cerise. L’ensemble était peu agréable à boire.

gripweed57 (728) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bright reddish amber color. Pink head disappeared quickly. Aroma is sweet cherry and funky disco barnyard. Hints at barbecue sauce and furniture polish. Flavor is tart cherries and more barbecue sauce. There is some oak that emerges. Overall, this is a tart sweet lambic that gets it done.

daje (2549) - NORWAY - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Ørsted Ølbar, july 26th 2014. Ruby body with a thin pink head. Looking cool! Fruity aroma with tart cherries, lime sweet syrup and caramel malt. Taste is strong cherries and wood, with a heavy thick sweetness cutting through, thick bodied, sugar sweet finish, like red berry jam. It’s ok but way too sweet in my opinion.

ik vond dit kriekenbier net iets te zuur voor mij, voor mij mag het iets zoeter zijn.
