Very light gushing to thick red-brown head, immediately degraded to a viscous, muddy, red-brown beer, yeast and other things all in suspension. Overwhelming cherry nose upon opening, fruit acids, acetic acid, fruity esters, wood and fusels. Bit of a jumble, but pretty attractive all the same; Sour cherries, with a very remarkable background flavour - mounting towards the finish - that is 100% like dried figs. Alcohol and fusels, but not to obtrusive. Fruity, serious alcoholcontent and -burn, but yet not really sour. Very well (fruit)bodied, slick, fiery. Better than the sum of its parts, marks to prove. Big thanks to Jan & C.! chrisv10 (17942) - DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010

Bottle at home.
Hazy red-brown with some head. Matter of fact if poured out of the bottle! Aroma moderate cherries and sour. Flavor sour, wood and cherries. Almost full body, the warmth is certainly felt. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Reddish brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of cherries, sweets, alcohol, spice and wood. A flavor of wood, cherries and spice. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle courtesy of a trade with yespr. Pours a murky deep reddish brown with a thin tan head that disappears after the first sip and leaves no lace. Very pleasant aroma of sour cherries, oak, and red wine vinegar. The flavor is equally enjoyable with sour cherries and oak with an earthy component that adds to the complexity. Some red wine vinegar in the flavor as well along with just a bit of brown sugar. Enjoyable.

Bottle care of Papsoe. Pours a very cloudy dirty brown with some reddish tinges around the edges. Decent offwhite coloured head that falls away very quickly to nothing. Not the best looking beer to be honest. Aromas are dominated by lactic sourness with some sour cherry and lemons coming through in support. Good stuff. Flavours are likewise dominated by lactic acid with a little sweetness coming through from the cherries and maly backbone. Big acidic bite gives a very dry finish. Very full mouthfeel.

Sampled from 250 ml bottle and shared by BDR. Pours a hazy yellowish dark brown colored brew with a thin head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of tart cherries, vanilla, oak wood, a hint of vegetable and rhubarb. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of smoked wood, tart cherries, vanilla and a touch of brown sugar. Finish is semi-sweet with some cherry and brown sugar aftertaste. BuckeyeBoy (8205) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle thanks to ditmier for sharing. Pours out cloudy mahogany with a small sand head. Aroma is nice citrus, cherries, oak, and tart. Taste more of the cherries and citrus (lemons mostly) along with some wood and white vinegar. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2010
My first kriek! :-) Pours a a murky red-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is estery barnyard notes, cherries and hints of lemon and wood. Taste is oak, smoke, cherries, yeasty notes and hints of balsamic. Well-toned, as far as I can see, Kriekselikroxen is a solidly brewed sour ale that shouldn’t scare anyone away from trying out more of the genre. gunnfryd (15104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2010
