750ml corked bottled shared by brew3crew. Mostly hazy red / brown color. Sort of bubbly, khaki head. Decent lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft moderate strength carbonation. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste. Tart, and spice. Oak wood. Light cherry, some mustiness. OK for me, not too impressive. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a hazy amber brown color witha m edium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have a tart cherry fruitiness, mild acidity, sweet caramel malt, black cherry juice. The flavor is less tart than the nose. I would hope for more sour character. OK, not great. b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2013
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks decent; cloudy amberish brown with lively carbonation and ample foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; tart cherries and oak. Tastes like it smells, only not as robust. Average on the palate. Decent beer, but it smells better than it tastes. TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013

Deep red color, tiny pinky head. Lagerish caramel and some cherry in the nose. Medium-bodied. "Kriek Lager". Cherryish flavor with some caramel, not much caramel. Quite easy.

Appearance: The body is murky with a reddish hue with hints of brown throughout. The head is short and quickly settles into a thin light tan coating with a foamy ring.
Aroma: Musky cherries is the big aroma, semi-sweet with no hints of tart or sour. Not a huge fan of this.
Taste: Ah again musky cherries, it’s like a basement with cherry flavor. There’s some toasted oak flavors, but no sourness. Not a fan.
Palate: Medium bodied, a bit thin, with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is the worst sour I can think of. There’s no sour, just musky sweet cherry. There’s nothing about this I enjoy, at least it’s not badly priced.
Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Colour is an appropriate red-orange. Aroma is exactly like canned cherry pie filling, and once I had that impression in my head, it was difficult to enjoy this beer. Feel is not very full, not really tart enough. Tasted artificial to a degree. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - hazy dark amber beer; little foam left; earth, cherry and wood in the nose; some sweetness; light sourness and a good malt body; chewy cherryish aftertaste DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a two fingered white/pink head that quickly fades to a ring, leaving no lace. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Color is almost clear red/amber. Tart cherry nose. Flavor is tart cherry, some sweetness. Clean, dry finish abcfan (920) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Good. Pours red with decent off-white head, no retention or lace. Aroma is full of sour cherries. This one is smooth in the mouth, with a dry / tart finish that made me pucker. jsquire (4421) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Ruby red color with a pinkish white head. Cherry nose with lots of sugar sweetness. This is a sweet beer with a strong tart cherry flavor. Sweet/tart with some oak and vanilla under all that cherry. Better than I expected.
