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!

0,25 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme: vakker dyp rødfarge, som portvin. Opp gjennom det tette lyserøde skummet stiger en herlig aroma av kirsebær, mandler/mandelessens, vanilje og kirsebærsyltetøy. Smaken er lekker og avrundet, kanskje litt i søteste laget (men jeg hadde gjerne tatt en flaske til). Snopeøl!

250ml bottle from Liquor Mountain. Pours a deep clear red, nice white lacing. Big sour cherry aroma, vinegary notes with wood. Lovely approachable sour cherry flavour, with a second half that bends into a more malt and oak showing, albeit subtle. Lovely fizz and good restrained sourness. Surprised this is 7%, much more easy to down in large amounts than say, Duchesse.

I liked this one although it is not a lambic kriek. It would benefit from a bit more tartness,

Bottle. Clear, deep red, but with no head. Lovely cherry aroma. Sour, but well balanced with the fruit. Satisfying but not hugely complex, but still several layers to it.

StilleStorm (1431) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2016
DAA; Bottle 11,2 FL. OZ., from Vinmonopolet. Pours large clear red with a frothy creamy, lasting and lacing, reddish head. Nose is moderate to heavy, cherries, moderate sour, light almonds, yeast and spice. Taste is medium sweet and bitter sour with a lasting, sweet and sour cherries finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is average. Very refreshing.

330 ml bottle picked up locally consumed at home. Pours a clear reddish auburn color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart cherries, oak, caramel, hints of chocolate, acidic, mild funk, some sweetness from the cherries, ok.

Clear ruby colour, very small head. Very complex aroma: cherries, winous notes, some wood, bit funky. Medium body, sweetnes balanced with sour. Again lots of cherries in taste, dark fruits, wood, some sauerkraut on the finish. mix of kriek and flanders red ale.
