Had this one a while back..and I can still reminisce about the wonderful cherry aroma and flavor I do love cherries and this one hits it hard. Slight tartness, and crisp clean finish with cherry backbone. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 26, 2010
On tap @ Breakwater. Light golden pink with a small rosy head. Nice aroma of berries, cherry, graham cracker and oak. The flavor is lightly sour with a light malt presence and a dry oaky finish. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a clean, crisp, tart finish. Pretty good beer, tastes like they used extract but not too sweet and lightly sour.

My Bottom Line:TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Oddly enough, this fruit beer smells and tastes like a sweetened fruit juice blend, which one doesn’t hope for much when the word “Kriek” is used in the beer’s name...
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the orange-hued dark red.
-The finish is mildly tart and dusty.
-The body is rounder than expected from what I thought was going to be a Sour Ale or Fruit Lambic. The carbonation makes this an easy quaff though.
-Cherries and berries galore wind up coming out as cough syrup-like at times, even though they are well dried out in the end.
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a murky pink with tons of chunky floaties and a bubbly creamy chunky pinkish white head. Aroma of mixed berries, mostly all berry aroma maybe a touch of wheat. Flavor of berries, wheat. Nice and dry. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
Color is deep purple and red. White lacing. Aroma of grape juice, flavor has a sour aftertaste, sugary fake berries at first. Thin, but not dirty. I probably would have liked it better if i didn’t have explosive diarrhea. On tap at Breakwater Brewing, Oceanside.

On tap at the brewpub 2/21/10: Pours a transparent dark ruby red with a well-lacing froth of pinkish head. Sweet, rich pure black cherries dominate the nose. Starts with good body and finely dissolved carabonation with some semi-sweet black cherry flavor and a touch of raspberry tartness before a smooth sweet tart finish. A nicely-balanced, flavorful and complex fruit beer. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Clear copper red color/ light pink head. Nice fruity raspberry, marionberry aromas. Rich frothy mouthfeel. Sweet flavor at first turns mildly tart with raspberry, cherry in the finish. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
On tap. Pours a clear red with pink head. Raspberries, cherries, light sweet malt, and some sourness. Not to complex, and to sweet ’n’ fruity for my tastes. yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2010
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden red with a small pink head. Aroma is distinct cherry, light butterish note coming through. Butterish cherry flavoured. Tap ran quite a bit before poured. Citric and almondish cherry fruity finish. Light sweetness. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Tap @ Breakwater. Pours a chunky pinkish purple with a bubbly off pink head. Big nose of sweet cherries, raspberries, and cotton candy. Quite sweet on the palate as well, slightly tart. Wish this brew had a little more bite to it, still pretty damn good though.
