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.

RW80 (2263) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2016
33cl bottle. Appearance: A Unclear medium to dark red color, with a nice pinkish toned head. which leaves a nice a amount of lacing. Aroma of cherries, sweet cherries,marzipan. Taste: Very sweet cherries(Quite artificial) liquor like some marzipan, and some alcohol warmth but in a nice way. Long lasting taste. Some freshness there which makes it better as then you would expect. Medium body, soft carbonation, watery texture (backlog rating)

Foerdifuxx (277) - Franconia, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2016
Deep red beer with a pinkish medium sized, short lasting head. Aromas of cherry, caramel, marzipan, ripe apples, chewy dark malt. Taste is medium sweet, light sour, light acidic, fruity with a malty finish. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, creamy texture. Not much to explore apart from the two main themes, cherry and dark malt, but very tasty.

Good Gawd! Fresh cherry aroma right off the bat. Pours a cloudy brown in the glass. Nice cherry pie flavor with a hint of toasty malt at the end. Overall... Why did i wait so long to try this?

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Nez cerise (videmment). Palais malt, sucr, fruits rouges. Corpulence moyenne, arme un peu chimique de la cerise. Bof

Bottle from saveur. Nose is cherry, boozy, wood. Palate is cherry and bitter backbone. Boozy finish. Very boozy fruitbeer. Good, but too much for me.
