Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a deep ruby red with a one finger slightly pink head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cherry, candied sugar, strawberry, and sweet tarts. The flavor was of sweet malt, strawberry, cherry, sugar, cherry syrup, and subtle sweet tart. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I will warn all who approach this brew that it is a lot more sweet than some other Krieks out there. This does cover up quite a bit of the subtle flavors that were present as I could not pick them out unfortunately. For what they were aiming for it really wasn’t too bad if I honest as the sweetness did carry throughout, but it wasn’t overpowering to the point where you think you are going to get diabeetus from drink a glass of it. A fairly well done brew that I wouldn’t mind having again in the future if more funky Krieks are not available at the time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (1614) - 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.

Mørk rød klar med fingerhøyt beigerosa skum. Lukter solbær og modne kirsebær. Syrligsøt forfriskende kirsebærsmak, faktisk noe flyktig bitterhet inni der også. Kort.
