bluejacket74 (1972) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2012
12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a ruby red/purple color with about an inch pink head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The bottle was a bit of a gusher when I opened it. Aroma is sweet and tart cherries, oak, funk, and a bit of vinegar. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, but theres also a bitter earthy flavor noticeable. Not too sour tasting, the bitter earthy flavor seemed to overpower the other flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. Its not a bad beer and its worth trying once, but I wouldnt spend $12.99 a bottle for this again.

emacgee (4662) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours a soft and cloudy ruby pink with one finger of wispy light pink head. Nose is tart and acidic with an upfront geueze-y character. Sharp acidity and cherry notes come through with some lemon rind and hay. Lots of funk for sure. Sharp flavor and upfront acidity with a light astringency. Not much of the kriek carries through in flavor. Very dry and light, super sharp and acidic.

TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours a cloudy red/orange, with a thin head. Fruity, spicy aroma, quite developed/aged, dried fruit, wood, dill, cherries, dried apricots. Dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy, acidic taste, cherries, dried fruit, funk. The bottle was not old, but the beer feels a bit past its prime? (2012-10-08)

jackl (7573) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle sample @ Borefts 2012. The pours deep red with a medium pink head. The nose is sweet dehydrated cherry, some sugar and mild funky yeast. The taste is meaty cherry pit, soft vinegar and chalk. Lip-puckering but smooth. Overall, this is actually a fairly nice kriek. Respec

thome50 (1294) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle from my birthday. Pours a deep red with bright pink and frothy head. Aroma is slight funk, gueuze, hay. Taste is initially slightly sour/tart but quickly moves on to a metallic taste that is very off putting. Moves on to some slight tart cherry notes and then finishes with my of a sucking on pennys taste. Overall, not that nice.

jaghana (5896) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle 37,5cl from fonefan thanks ! A cloudy amber red beer with medium pink head. Nose is typically a gueuse one with moister and brettanomices. Aroma is very dry, tart, wet wood, acid and sour background, cherry is there but not outstanding, kind of bitter almond, a good kriek even if fruits are a bit shy there.

sistinas (108) - Mountain View, California, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle. Poured a dark translucent ruby color with a large head. Aroma of musk and sour cherries. Didnt taste much of the cherries, just a fair bit of funky fruit with a weirdly bitter aftertaste. Not exceedingly sour. Every sip tasted a bit different, sometimes in a good way. Not something I could drink a whole bottle of, but interesting.
