Crop of 2006. Dark red with pink head. Very sweet but not too overwhelming. Would be able to drink a few of these without upsetting the stomach. Very nice. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 5, 2009

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of cherries and cherry cough-drops with a slight hint of funk. Poured ruby/cherry/purple in color with a small off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly tart. Tastes of cherries, cherry cough-drops, and slight funk. Light to medium body. Thin, slightly tingly texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, lightly funky, cherry finish. PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz (355 ml) caged cork bottle. Pours a dark, ruby red with a nice pink head. Fresh aroma of sour cherries and some musky odor. Flavor is full of good cherry sourness - kind of reminds me of a cherry sweet tart - just the right balance of sweetness and sourness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant carbonated zing to it. Very decent.

(trade from Jaxson) Pours with pretty much zilch carbonation. No foam and cloudy body. Aroma of cherries. Sour cherry flavor. Based on other reviews I’m guessing the bottle lost its carbonation. The cork says SB05 on it if that means anything. Will have to try another bottle sometime for a rerate. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2009

Beer Festival 2009. A thin beige head over a golden red colored body. Inviting sour-sweet cherry aroma. Sweet, still fresh cherries in the flavor, with an acidulous touch. A hint of almonds and citrus. Juicy mouthfeel. Quite well-bodied. Very easy to like, very easy to drink.
Bottle - pours pinkish-amber wiht a frothy, slightly pink head. Sweet cherries on the nose, but not too overpowering. The taste is mellow tart cherries with a bit of hops at the end. There’s a little sourness in there also. The tiny bubbles give it a creamy feel on the tongue. This isn’t the most flavorful or complex beer, but very smooth and pleasant. I could drink a lot of this. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra and CaryTheDude. Big, medicinal cherry nose. Sweet, almost like cough syrup. No real complexity. Still tastes alright, though. Especially if you’re introducing others to krieks. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Interesting cherry nose. Very sweet, some tartness. Tastes too much like straight cherry juice. Not complex at all. Very drinkable, smooth nice flavor, but it’s boring.
