rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2012
330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear deep ruby red with a half finger reddish-tan head. Decent head retention forming a thin cap over the beer but lacing is practically nonexistent. Aroma is nearly all cherries. Very reminiscent of cherry Kool-Aid. There are some Belgian Lambic undertones, however, with horse blanket and barnyard letting you know this isnt a soft drink. Really a unique, inviting aroma. Flavor carries over the characteristics of the aroma with sweet cherry juice along with tartness contributed by the cherries. However underneath the cherry is barnyard funk very typical of a Lambic. This serves to well balance out the fruit and add complexity. While this beer is on the sweet side it never gets cloying and the tartness really helps drinkability. Finish is only slightly sticky and a little drying. Overall, I am very impressed with this beer and wish I would have opened it up over the summer when it was warmer. The alcohol is nowhere to be found and this is really a guzzler. I really need to seek out some more Krieks and see how this stacks up.

Najlepszy z wiśniowych lambikw, jakie znam. Alkohol robi tu robotę. Szklanka z nżką, czuję się jak dziewczyna. Trudno.

anstei (1916) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear ruby. Aroma is artificial infused cherries, stone. Body is heavy and sweet, artificial cherries, sticky. Cherry palate, but still not a nice one. If you like cherry infusions, why not, but otherwise rather no.

Surprisingly good. The estery softness and caramel-like qualities of the Donker and the cherries mix rather well!
