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

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2014
750, capped. Pours a murky dark ruby with fizzy pink head that dissipates. Big sweet cherry nose, very sweet, like snack cherries; they show like fruit rather than like a synthetic. Creamy medium body with prickly carb. Tangy sweet cherry mid palate with mild tartness. Not the most complex kriek, but showing nicely.

Icedwarf (417) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Donker roodbruin bier met schuim. Smak is fris zuur en fruitig, duidelijke zure kersen smaak met licht zoete anijs invloed. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.

AdamJackson (2870) - 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.

A pretty good lambic but not very complex. Aromas and flavors of wood, cherries, vanilla and other tart fruit. Pours red with little head or carbonation.
