Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a deep murky amber-red with an average size fizzy off-white head. Nice aroma of sour fruit, mainly cherries, along with caramel malt, light spices and wood. Flavour, which is just a touch watery, of tart cherries, other fruit, light spices, yeast and caramel malt. Average bodied. A very good Kriek.

Location: 750 ml bottle at Ginger Man, 12/30/10

Aroma: The nose is sour cherry, yeast, wood, other berries, and a little brett
Appearance: It pours into the glass a hazy reddish-brown color with a tan head
Flavor: The taste is slightly sour, some fruity sweetness, and slightly acidic
Palate: The mouthfeel is fairly light, its pretty drinkable with a tart, acidic finish to it
Overall Impression: This stuff was petty decent. Not the most exciting thing in the style, but still pretty enjoyable. Id describe this as a refreshing and drinkable beer with some cherry tartness to it.

Bottle from Trade with eclectic. Thanx. Popped whole preparing new years dinner. Pours a sparkling brown with a fizzy body and a high carbonation level. The orangish head fades quite quick. The nose is dominated of cherrys that seems somehow artificial. Some lacticness, hay and a bit of malts but with a Nice sourness. The taste is very sour - i like that. At The same time it has a gentle sweetness that tends to balance The sourness. Still The cherrys are up front. Highly carbonated body with sparkling palate. All together a ver nice sour. Cheers and happy new year.

A-pours a mahogony brown with some red hues and a still sitting tan colored head. S-the nose is different, lots of fleshy cherry with a fair bit of sourness. The wood blends with the acidity and sharp citric bitterness to make an off putting aroma up front. T-nice notes of oak up front as the cherries take over, light vinegar flavors come in underneath with tons of acidity in the back. overly acidic in the finish and very dry and lingering acidity. M-creamy body, medium to full and very carbonated with an extremely dry bitter finish. D-this is a little rough, overly acidic and some offf putting vinegar flavors. the cherries are very strong and gives it a nice bit of sweetness. not bad but rough to drink.

Draught at Uber Tavern. No head on this beer. This beer has a coppery red color to it. It looks decent. It has a pungent, funky cherry aroma that pops. Its quite effervescent. The beer has a lovely mouth-puckering tart cherry flavor. Its simple and to the point. It doesnt have many dimensions, but the ones it does have are great. Its quite sour and very good. Im not getting much from the oak, which is a disappointment, but this beer is still excellent, despite this fact.

Bottle pours murky red brown with an off-white head. Aroma shows plenty of lactic goodness with notes of cherry and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional oak, lemon, and slight vinegar. Acidity is moderate and well balanced.

lots of lactic acid sourness, with a hint of cherry. lacks the complex malty backdrop of better renditions.

2009 Bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours dark red with off white head. Aroma of tart cherries, funk, apparent sourness. Lots of tart cherries and puckering sourness in the flavor. Some wood, some funk. One of the more sour Krieks ive ever had, which is awesome. Slick, nice carbonation. Excellent.

Thank you Dstructo, prost ;) thick murky burgundy mashed fruit. The aroma is deep tart marachino and somewhat phenolic, although not in a bad way. Ripe and woody. Very refreshing, drinkable, and pleasantly tart. Nice acetic and fruity acids, the nutty malts stopping it all from being silly. Very nice.
