This brewery knows how to do sour wild ales. Thus cherry bomb rapes the nose. Seems you can smell the different cherries. Flavor is funky tart and cherries wil a cedar oak background.

My fav kriek from this side of pond. Very cherry and raspberry. Light carbonation. There is a dimension of funk and oak. Tart flavors kept me wanting to have more. Cherry is the best.

Only down side is huge money for this 750 bottle....forty bucks ouch. Never the less worth it as it has so much going on. Huge cherry aroma off the start. Poured rose red. Light head. Flavors of everything, from hay, barnyard bing cherries black cherries and ending of very tart acids. After all that the cherries cruise back in for the finish line. A+

Pour from a bottle is a nice dark rich Ber with a strong sour aroma. Taste is a strong sour with a hint of tart cherries. After taste is a dry tart.

2014 project. This is phenomenal. Tannic woody slightly sweet cherry aroma with lactic sour. Taste is very sour. Maybe 8 or 9 of 10 lactic sour. Great. Super complex bold and flavorful. Woody, sour, dark fruit, cherry, tannic cherry, slight sweetness but balanced. The whole thing is just great very balanced and amazing. Love it. The dark fruit flavors from the wood and the cherry just perfectly compliments each other. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of the best sour ales i’ve ever had. Bitingly sour at first before mellowing out to a wonderful flavor. I’m usually disappointed by the lack of sour in american sours, but this lived up to it’s billing and more. great stuff.

Thanks to Dan for this unexpected treat. 2010 vintage picked up at the brewery. Really nice looking cherry red with a big frothy white head. No sediment, but I also got the first pour! Smells like juicy sour cherry pie. The taste is so perfectly balanced and sour. Cherries were well pronounced and far surpassed my expectations. This is my number one sour for sure. So awesome. Must get more!

2011 vintage consumed on 11/22/13. From the second the bottle opens a wonderful aroma of sour cherries greets the nose. Color is a brightish red. The flavor is an incredibly bright sour with the cherries coming through magnificently without any of the Brett notes than can sometimes overwealm a lesser sour. As perfect an example of a Kriek that there is.

Their best sour, perhaps there most common...big huge cherries, some wine and Brett. Champagne like carbonation bringing out more cherries and sour fruits. Great fruity tart finishing balance.
