Bottle. Clear medium to dark red color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light red head. Aroma is light yeasty, barnyard, moderate to light heavy cherry, fruity sour. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and acidic with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (060408)

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
25 cL bottle, thanks to BelJohansen. Pours clear and golden red with a lacing pink head. Extremely dry and sulphorish cherry aroma. Dry to acidic sulphor/wooden flavour. Solid citric bite following. Woody flavour seems more dominant than the cherry fruit notes. Ends in a citric to dry sulphor wood finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
A red beer with a small white disappearing head. The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of wood and cherries. The flavor is boring of cherries, and dry wood with the carbonization tickling the tongue. The end is very dry with notes of over-ripe cherries.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
(bottle 25 cl) In my version only 5,8% ABV. A different, stronger, more dry and less sweet Kriek. More beer, less fruit. A refreshing and quenching fruit-beer based on Sour Ale rather than sweetened lambic. If you miss Rodenbach Alexander, this is a decent substitute. 220896

oh6gdx (19991) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2006
Bottled. Ruby red colour, minor head. Aroma of cherry and alcohol (cherry liquor). Minor hints of burnt sugar. Flavour is strong cherry and alcohol. Some cookies in aftertaste. Strong cherry in aftertaste. Tasted almost like the sweet Madeira Wines on Madeira island. Brutal kriek, but yet again very nice.

joergen (19639) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange red coloured with an off white head. Light acidic aroma of wood, brett and berries. Light acidic flavour of wood, red wine, berries and glue. Tart finish.

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2003
Bottled. Reddish brown. Balsamic cherry aroma. Light bodied and lightly syrupy, but with balanced sweetness. Refreshing and uncomplicated.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Ruby color; big head. Lovely aroma, with sweetness, sourness, cherry fruitness. Good sweet taste, but missing some more biting sourness; lightly vinous.

Bottle 25cl at Carlsens "Skvatter", Odense: Dark ruby red with white head. Cherrie & malty feel. Some sourness - vinegar. Then sweetness. Little alcohol appears. OK pleasant finish. Very allround!
