Not too much cherry in the nose, or at least not much as i expected. But the smooth and enjoyable cherry flavors more than impressed. I love the lightly bubbly feel on the tongue. I didnt think i would like it, but i eould def hav this one again!

Bottle on board Fridtjofen 25.07.15. Ruby. Diminishing, off-white head. Aroma of cherries and marzipan. Taste of cherries, cherry jam, marzipan, almonds and malt. Bitter cherries in lingering aftertaste. Dry, with moderate sourness and tartness.

Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a clear, deep wine red color with a light pink head. Sweet aroma of cherries, sweet vinegum, oak, forest berries, earth and some barnyard. Sweet is also the flavor with lots of sweet berries, sweet and sour cherries, some vinegar and hay in the end. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. Without a doubt a cherry beer, pretty sweet, but not much else.

Flaska från belgianbeerfactory.com. Körsbärsfärgad vätska. Doftar lätt av surkörsbärs och lite funk. Låg beska med en lätt strävhet som sedan övergår i en avrundande sötma.

Strykzone (5518) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2015
On draft at Elijah P’s. Deep red brown with a funky off white head. I smell vinegar in front but cherry and malts under. I tasted must less vinegar and more cherry. Earthiness and mustiness. Some bark / mushroom but just a little. It is quite sweet and made for a good dessert beer. Some grapes and they were almost grape jelly. A bit of spice at the finish was an interesting surprise. This is dangerous stuff. So easy to drink and one could easily find himself unable to walk steadily.

Ruby pour, minimal white head. Aroma is fan-fucking-tastic, sour cherries, blackberries, wine and leather. Flavor is sour cherries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries... sweet. Awesome.

Marduk (3964) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2015
250ml bottle. Clear dark ruby red color. Medium size, pink head, stays. Bit milky, fruity, caramel, sweet, cherry in aroma. Cherry stones, fruity, sourish, straw, bit woody notes in taste. Nice and crisp. Long lasting fruity cherry in aftertaste. Nice one.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2015
Medium pink head. Clear deep dark red body with light carbonation. Cherry juice and almonds aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet metallic cherry taste with oily notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish, and faintly acidic, almonds and cherries aftertaste with metallic wooden notes. It grew on me. It’s actually quite nice, even if it is a little bit sweet. (0.33l bottle, I have no idea where from.)

Bottle. Nice ruby red body with a small pinkish head. Aroma has cherries and also quite notable lactic/yoghurty notes. Big cherry taste with more yoghurt in the background. Medium level tartness - similar to Lindemans’ sweetened fruit Lambics with the sweetness being even a bit lower (a good thing). It also recalls some core elements of Rodenbach and their own Duchesse. Medium to low complexity but utterly refreshing. I want to be able to buy this in big ass two litre plastic bottles (the ones that are exclusively restricted to hobo lagers here) and chug it in the coming hot summer.

suurjuust (1788) - ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2015
Red beer, small off-white head. Nose is cherries, caramel, malt somewhere in there, sweet notes, something lactic. Flavor is sweet caramel mixed with sour cherries, sourness dominating. Pretty dry and cherry-y finish, lingering sourness and caramel. Mouthfeel is pretty dry. Not the best kriek I’ve ever had, but not exactly bad either.
