UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Mørk rød med lavt beige skum. Lukter røde bær, kirsebær, vanilje og trevirke. Middels fylde. Smaker sure bær, bæreddik, syrlige epler, søtlig frukt, bær og fat. Lang.

Exactly what you want from a kriek. Cherry takes center stage, but its not overly sweet. A little venous, a little sour. Refreshing. Tried with Jess at Boulevardia in 2017.

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 (2747) - 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 (3175) - 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 (21516) - 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.
