dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2014
2010 bottling. Pours pretty orange-red amber, small ring of bubbles. Aroma has held up well and is maybe my favorite part of this beer: dry sour cherry, oak, light red wine, orange, though also has some slightly volatile chemical notes. Taste is sour pie cherry and preserved lemon, lemon juice, some sweet malts too. Very nice.

Draught @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017 - Red Session
Pours hazy deep red with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, cherry, tart and funky. Taste is medium sweet and medium sour with a long dry, cherry, tart and cherry pits. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Perfectly made kriek, the sour cherries are awesome, the body is awesome, the sour is medium-high perfect. Cascade portland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2017
Tap at Au Trappiste. Pours darkest, almost black red with a white foam. Aroma is cherry, stones, funk, but the cherry aromas really open up after a while. Body is medium, cherries, but not as fruity as Belgian lambics often are. Clean sourness with a different kind of funk. Discreet but lively carbonation. Dryish palate. Good, not as intense as a typical Kriek would be. Rather straightforward and simple.

Itzjerm (3074) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Typical sour cherry kriek. Tart slap then a bit of fruit. Not very complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy red cherry color. Mild aroma of cherry pits, some cherry juice, some sourness. Smooth mouthfeel, lean body; good malt base for a Sour, moderate cherry flavor, not juicy, no pit tannins; medium sour level; the finish is lemony and a bit astringent. Possibly, some acetic acid in the end.
Nice and clean, but with no depth.

tapefuzz (755) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Draught. Pours dark, dark red with a small pinkish-beige head. Aroma is cherries, vinegar, light oak, and light vanilla. Taste is sour cherries, some vinegar, oak, and a little spice. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Too much vinegar and it could definitely use more spice (or even oakiness) for balance. I definitely wouldn’t want a whole bottle of this, but in a 6oz pour it is good.
