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.

Travlr (24691) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Very attractive bottle at DC’s first tasting of 2010. Bright pink with a 3-bubble head. Little to no aroma. Flavor of Hawaiian punch, but less complex. I’d like to taste the cherries some day, but you can keep the beer.

Theydon_Bois (19490) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle at Fastelavn Smagning 2014 @ J&C’s beer palace, Jutland Saturday Session 1 - 01/03/14 bottle #0531. Lightly hazed reddish amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is cherry forward, oaky twang, straw, pretty simple. Taste comprises cherry drops, sweet pangs mixed with semi tartened cherry skins, fruit syrup, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet close. Ok for style but this beer offered me little else than a cherrified tick.

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.

3.5
yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, corked. It pours a clear, reddish dark golden to amber body and a small, light beige head. The aroma has some cherry hints, but it’s too malty I think. Some caramel and toffee. There’s some dark dried fruits too. The flavor is less caramel malty, but with the same dried fruits and cherry hints. Full to medium body with a nice carbonation level. Lasting malty finish with a little cherry touch. Pretty decent this one, but not impressive. 140301

Bottle shared by Jcwattsrugger. Pours muddy reddish brown. Nose and taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh sweet maraschino cherries and pie crust. Medium body. Tasty as a fruit beer.
