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

freretoc (690) - 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 (637) - 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 (682) - 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 (2450) - 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.

gyllenbock (4638) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. (thanks SirLimpsalot) Clear ruby red with a pink head. Cherries, light funk and wood. Not that sour. Easy to drink and nicely refreshing in the hot summer evening.

@Basunen: lite diskret doft. Trevlig fruktig smak, tydlig körsbär, lätt syrlig. Perfekt i värmen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
