LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Bottle - My expectations were definitely high for this beer. Pours reddish brown with a thin head. Very strong aroma of sour cherry and vinegar. Very sour and acidic flavor. This sample was slightly medicinal and not enjoyable.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Pours a rose tinted brownish red with an ultimately dissipating pink head. Aroma is pretty intense with hay, wood, mustard, and a real nice cherry scent. The cherry makes the aroma really balanced compared to other sours Ive had. Not sweet, but the earthy sourness is balanced with fruit. An old dusty smell seems to be there. Flavor is very tart, with wood, vinegar, mustard, grass, a little bit of cherry but theres nothing sweet or balancing about it. Finishes with a lingering woody tartness on the throat, still glueing my tongue to the roof of my mouth. Not as dry as expected. Very drinkable beer though, average mouthfeel is pretty light and neither creamy nor overly slick. Pretty good, but a bit less interesting than Lou Pepe. Its more lambic experience for me, which I still need.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle, split with a friend who was enjoying his first kriek. Pours a very nice deep red with quickly dissipating pink head. Aroma is sour and tart with a clean cherry fruitiness. Flavor is tart throughout and not overwhelmingly sour. Loaded with fresh cherry flavors, this one seemed to capture the cherry better than others Ive had which sometimes get too sweet for me. Finish is clean and dry. Carbonation was moderate. My friend is in love, he liked it more than I did....and I think its fantastic.

Bottle (Sept. 2007). Pours cranberry red with a thin pink head. Aroma is tart cherry, acidic and dusty. Medium body, dry. Flavor is tart, acidic, sour cherry. Ok, so this was my first sample of this style of beer, so maybe I just dont get it yet.

It has a medium body, a thick creamy texture and a flat carbonation. The flavor is moderate sweet and heavy acidic. Good dry finish.
