COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams American Kriek: The intense black cherry character in this beer comes from Balaton cherries, which were discovered in Hungary and are now grown in Michigan. These special cherries are prized for their depth of flavor. The tartness from the cherries is balanced by a rich, malty character with toasted oak notes added from the barrel aging.

Pours a candy apple red, with a light pink head. Has a sweet cherry nose with some earthy notes and sourness. Moderately sweet flavor, and loads of cherries! Finishes tart, sour, and dry. (not a bad thing) Overall, I liked it, and will buy again.

Pours ruby red with a very thin white head. Aroma is tart cherry, with hints of cinnamon. Body is light, and crisp. Flavor is tart cherry. Not sour, but tart. Enjoyable, but not what I was expecting.

Bottle: The aroma consists of sweet cherry and a touch of apple. It pours transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with sweet cherry. The finish has light apple with a touch of cinnamon. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation.

DSG (13692) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 28, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Oren. Clear red with an off-white head. Aroma of cherries, malt, caramel, some alcohol, wood notes and light brandy hints. Sweet fruity flavor with cherries, caramel, a bit of sweet spiciness, some liqueur notes and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied. So-so.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2011
750ml drank fresh: Pours a cloudy dark reddish orange with a puffy white head, huge sour cherry aroma, starts and ends sweet. Id say try this one in 5 to 7 years and see if the potential pans out.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pours ruby red with a white head. Smells of buttery cherries and lightly tarte. Tastes of tarte cherries, some sweet cherry hints and some citrus on the finish.

Definitely more of a fruit beer (as listed here) than a true kriek, although there is a bit of tartness. Kind of similar to Founders Cerise. Not overwhelmingly sweet but the cherries also just arent as robust as in Belgian Red.

deyholla (10835) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Sampled from the tap at EBF. Poured a clear ruby with an amber her with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a bit underwhelming with a light slightly tart cherry note. Flavor started with cherry that grew into a medium tartness and ended with a hint of acid. Nice light body.
