Lukaduke (2312) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours a brown ruby color with a two finger pink foam. On the nose its got some sweet cherry pie notes, touches of warm spice and a little bit of wet wood and earthy notes. The palate is ripe cherry, round malts, touch of tartness and some rustic wood on the late palate.

AdamJackson (2786) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 19, 2014
37,5CL, 3 finger cherry pink head. blood red beer.the nose is really good. very sour cherry forward, just a touch of sweetness. Oud Bruin taste, cherry is now more medicine like, a bit too sweet, lacks a lot of compexity but honestly it’s not terrible, malt backbone supports the sweetness well but it seems like more of a girls’ drink.

JDBaker11058 (1334) - 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.
