SpringsLicker (3583) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle 05/04 Cellared since purchasing at New Beer Distributors. Big pop but little head produced with the pour; just a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Subtle fruit, some leathery notes. Sweet fruity flavor, smooth.

Bov (12530) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2009
from Au Grain dOrge, labelled Kasteel Rouge - fully cloudy reddish-brown colour with a firm beige foam; strong aroma of cherries and marzipan, very sweet and full-bodied, juicy with some acidic tartness; long sweetish cherries aftertaste - strong and very sweet yet quite enjoyable

Tejas (1004) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Interesting beer. Looks cool in the glass > Dark red. Sweet at first then sour. Tons of different flavors as it warms up. Yeasty but not to much so. Would drink again.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Delicious deep ruby kriek. All the attributes of a great Belgian fruit beer, loads of flavour, fine aroma and sweet, yet balanced.

pours rich red with no head. aroma is instantly bursting with cherries. drinks with sweet cherries and more cherries. less a beer then an alcoholic soda. very dangerous as its very drinkable @ 8%.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2009
On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. Fresh wet black cherries in the nose with some strong citric acid and light honeyed sweetness. Pours a murky bright red-brown, with a creamy off-white head. Flavor is dominated by a lightly sweet straight sour cherry juice. The sweetness of the malt in the beer plays off the cherry sourness and gives decent balance, despite a somewhat thin body. Yeast character or much beer flavor are missing. Somewhat shallow.

malrubius (2788) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Draft at Ebenezers. Dark reddish brown with ring. Cherry soda woody aroma. Cherry caramel spicy cherry soda. Spritzy. Pretty good.

A bold beer that will stand out in a crowd. Lively head, big aroma of cherries and malt. Nice interplay of fruit and malt, good balance of sour and sweet.

This was just superb, it is one of the beers that make you happy when in Belgium and also force you to promise to go back one day.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
On tap at Brick Store. Pretty beer, deep ruby red with a nice foamy head. Aroma sweet, largely of cherries. Strong cherry flavor, pretty sweet, although not cloying. Slight bitterness on finish. Wish there was more sour flavors to balance out the sweetness. Not bad, but not my favorite kriek.
