UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Better on second taste, going to hedge my score for now because I had one bottle with less cherry than expected and one that was quite solid.

This is an overwhelming beer, surprising you with every sip. Leather, sour aromas mix with both ripe cherries and tart cherry skins. Infinitely drinkable and refreshing.

Kolor metny wisniowy praktycznie bez piany. Czuc na pierwszym planie kwasne wisnie, duzo beczki i niecy dzikich nut w postaci skory. Lekkie nuty winne i cierpki posmak na koncu. Czuc tez cytryny i czarne porzeczki. Zachowany swietny balans pomiedzy kwasnoscia i owocowa slodyczka.

375ml, bottled on 02/05/2014, many thanks to SinH4! Pours cloudy cherry red with almost no head, no lacings. Aroma is super strong cherry, stone, soft vinegar. Body is medium, pleasantly sour and tart, with almost no carbonation. Like a cherry syrup in all the best ways. Quite sweet and fruity, with an acidity to bring the sweetness down to a healthy level. Still a little bit sticky. Long fruity palate, a tad too sour to enjoy it without breaks. Very good, yet having subtle flaws here and there.

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.

Dogbrick (13018) - 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.
