Aroma: vinegar, cherries, vanilla Appearance: Ruby red, minimal head Taste: tart cherry flavor, almost no malt flavor breaks through the acidity. no bitterness to speak of Palate: thin, highly carbonated, dry finish Overall: didn’t perceive as much of the oakiness as i expected still a very good kriek.

Boxereddy (442) - BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016
Licht wazig bruinrood bier met een kleine, lichtroze schuimkraag. Aroma: overrijpe kersen, amandelen en een lichte funky zuurheid. Smaak: matig tot licht zoet, overrijpe kersen, fruitig. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met matige koolzuur en licht zurige afdronk. Goede ECHTE kriek!

tfredvik (1670) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 17, 2016
Brownish red body that is slightly hazy, topped by a small, light pink head that ends up as a fully covering film. Strong flavour of overripe cherries, almonds and a light funky sourness. Quite strong flavour that is very dominated by overripe cherries, also caramel, fruitiness and hints of funk. Moderate to light sweet taste and a light sourness and acidity. Medium body, surprisingly dry, moderate carbonation. Maybe a bit one dimensional, but quite good.
[75 cl bottle, shared with Svensenga smak & behag, from Vinmonopolet online]

Vighals (2836) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2016
Mørk rød klar med fingerhøyt beigerosa skum. Lukter solbær og modne kirsebær. Syrligsøt forfriskende kirsebærsmak, faktisk noe flyktig bitterhet inni der også. Kort.
