From the brewery. Pours as beautifully as a kriek will ever be. Not the bright cherry red of cough syrup - but the red/orange that matches the aroma. Surprised by the intensity of the cherry. I'm thinking the freshness may have something to do with this. The palate leaves just a touch of off-putting acidity that is not the same as the Geuze or lambic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed at home. Looked forward this one. The big surprise is the amount of bitterness that this holds, you have to get used to it to fully grasp the rest of the tastes and the overall complexity. The aroma itself is pleasant and well balanced cherries with vanilla and some funk. The taste however also carries oak, vanilla, fruitiness along with the sourness and cherries. A lot more agressive than I anticipated, would have to have more to rate it again.

A really nice kriek. Aroma of the red fruit covers the stableness in the back. It is Lambic like acidic but yet less aggressive. I like it.

Pite z butelki 375. W aromacie bardzo mocna stajnia zmieszana z aromatem dojrzałych wiśni w smaku kwaśne wiśnie, typowe lambikowe nuty.

Hopmaestro (1632) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2017
Aroma is acidic cherries with lemon. Taste is up there, tart and rowdy with a cleansing sensation. Dry and rather bold in itís acidy glory. Sour cherries take a choke hold on your taste buds, and when they let go, an almost lemony sourness swipes away any hesitations.

Pite na miejscu w browarze. Świetny aromat dojrzałych wiśni pomieszany z stajnią. W smaku dojrzałe wiśnie, lambik i beczka. Wszystko pięknie się komponuje.

oberschlesier (52) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - JUN 12, 2017
Pours pretty color, pale red/rose, with big head caused by high carbonation (only at the beggining). Aroma isnít very impressive, there is of course sour cherry flavor but there is unfortunately some oxidation note too (sweet, vinegary, musty?). Taste is very fine, beer is sour and sweet together. Maybe a little watery.

Tinaccio (333) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 4, 2017
On keg at Motherís Kelly, London, UK. It pours dark pink, with a small pinkish head that disappears quickly. Aroma is cherry, fruity, red berries, acidic, wood, notes of lemon. Taste is light sour, notes of cherry. Body is light, carbonation is average. Finish is acidic and fruity. Overall very good!

dinkle50 (1465) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Clear red pour with a single finger, pinkish colored head. Really brilliant color. Nice to look at. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of cherries and a hint of hay and grass. Medium bodied with a very dry finish. Taste is full of cherries, hay, grass and slightly tart. Cherry skin creeps in as well.
