hardly any head. cherry pie aroma, it’s like opening a jar of conserved sweetened cherries and putting your nose in it. lovely. light sweetness, medium sourness, very subtle carbonation, almost flat, could be a bit more sprinkly for my liking. Very much enjoyed it. top kriek!

KraftowyJakup (294) - POLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Ciemny rubin, skromna piana. W nosie dominuje świeża wiśnia, taki rozgnieciony miąsz przejrzałego owoca, dalej delikatne drewno wpadające w orzech, w miarę ogrzewania czuć, że to migdał, jego aromat staje się coraz intensywniejszy, w tle może trochę porzeczki i skóry. Aromat wydaje się być mega naturalny, mam wrażenie jakbym wąchał mocno dojrzałe słodkie wiśnie prosto z drzewa i migdały takie ze skórką, nie jakiś słodki marcepan czy amaretto. W smaku czerwone owoce cały czas na pierwszym planie, lekkie skojarzenie z czerwonym winem, drewno, trochę skóry, limonka w posmaku. Kwaśność na dość umiarkowanym poziomie, w klimatach limonka/cytryna, czy niedojrzałe czerwone owoce, lekko wpadająca lacto, trochę cierpkości skórkowo-pestkowej, trochę w skórki kwaśnych jabłek, na finiszu trochę tanin od drewna. Słodyczy nieco jest, takiej czysto owocowej, wysycenie średnie.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2017 375 ml bottle, bottled 02-05-2014, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark ruby body, with a small, pinkish head.
Aroma of sour cherries, funk, cheese, unripe fruits, sour citrus, wood.
Tastes of oak, sour cherries, cheese, barnyard, green apples, some unripe pears.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, acidic, wooden, a bit funky, fruity, with cherries, pears, apples.

Very nice. Lovely, intense nose, with loads of funky and sour cherries notes. Taste is a bit raw, a bit less complex, while still well balanced. Overall not my favourite Kriek I’ve had, but still a great style example.

Ar/Ap/T/P/Ov: 8/4/7/4/16

Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Sample at Lizardville Westerville during the Sour Beer Night event on 05/17/2017. The beer pours a hazy ruby-purple color with a medium pinkish-white head that burns away steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, tart cherry and yeast. Light to medium body with a tart cherry character and notes of oak, herbal yeast and doughy malt. The finish is vinous oak and sour cherry. Very good beer all around.

2014, a więc pite 3 lata po butelkowaniu. Mała butelka. Idealna barwa i (niskie) wysycenie. Piana mogłaby być bardziej bujna. Intensywne wiśnie, zgodnie z obiecankami, ale dla mnie bardziej kompot niż pestka, jak w większości krieków - na plus. Nieco winne. W sam raz kwaśne i w sam raz niesłodkie. Delikatna cierpkość. Lubię taki balans w lambikach. Pijalne tak, że najchętniej sam bym obrócił z trzy duże butelki jednego popołudnia. Cudne.

Wspaniałe dzikie, kwasne i wiśniowe. Czego chcieć więcej skoro daje wspaniałe orzeźwienie i znakomicie resetuje kubki smakowe pomiędzy pitymi RISami? Piłbym wiadrami.

750ml bottle (thx, Nick M.!) shared with wife. Bottled on 2016-04-28. Pours a very dark cherry red with a rose head. Aroma is tart with cherry and barrel notes. Taste sour with excellent cherry notes. Very nice!

September 27, 2015 - At Cask Pub & Kitchen - 375ml bottle corked & caged; my last London rating for 2015. Gorgeous bright clear refractive ruby - fantastic, and who cares about the head (which was there - smallish and beige). Aroma is tons of cherry, light oak, and oddly delicate perfume hop bitterness. Taste however - holy crap that cherry, cherry, CHERRY - sweet but very very tart; did I mention the cherry? Slick, acidic, a little still - finishes, uh, well .... CHERRY!! (I was a little drunk by this point, and happy - sue me)

Barwa krwistoczerwona, wysycenie niskie, piana niska. W aromacie koncentrat wiśniowy i pestki. W smaku to samo, tylko do potęgi. Idealny balans pomiędzy kwaśnością wisni i taninami. Genialne piwo.
