4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

[Tap] Draught at Hopleaf in Chicago. Pours a deep red color with a quickly receding head. Cherry pie, vanilla and lightly sour aroma. Sweet and syrupy cherry character. Tart/sour hints are pretty subtle. Lively carbonation. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Hazy medium cherry brown color, thick rim head, swirls of lace. Taste is a beautiful cross between Kriek Lambic and a Brown Ale. Both sides have their moment, and move together to a very satisfying finish. Cherry is very present, but not overwhelming. Same for the malt. Good Stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Massive gusher. Almost clear deep red pour with disappearing pink head. Aroma is fruity, but not that much. Light cherry aroma, mild acetic notes, a bit citric as well. Taste is tart, fruity, light fruity sweetness, finishes quite dry. Palate is light with aggressive carbonation, dry. Ok.

Rouge brillant avec une mousse moyenne rose. L’arôme des cerises aigre, du levure sauvage, et un peu de cerise sucré. Carbonation moyenne, un peu cerise sucré au début, mais avec une finition sec de cerise aigre.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Il dominio incondizionato delle ciliegie, dolci e con sfumature leggermente candite, intrecciato con l’acidità intensa e pervasiva, la fanno assomigliare a una kriek "meno pura". Mantiene però un corpo acido leggermente più acetico-vinoso che le da un carattere proprio. Molto buona.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bien rouge, effervescence moyenne, mousse rose moyenne. Cerises bien présentes, pas trop sûre, malts se dévoilant légèrement par la suite, manque un peu de boisé et de longueur.
