UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 Growler from JW77 and Darkguardian. Pours a nice red color. Aromas of cherry, cranberries and tart raspberries. Flavor is just like a sweet/sour cherry candy. If there was a cherry flavored sweet tart this would be it. Damn fine beer. Seriously enjoyable. Loved it!! nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2009
Growler shared with hellbilly courtesy of psprings -- you guys rock! Pours a burnt shade of amber in color with mild carbonation and a fleeting beige head. Smells amazing. I want this in an oxygen tank. Perfect tart cherry pie filling flavor -- crust and all -- with a spicy touch of cinnamon. Warm and comforting. Easily the best Kriek I’ve had, thus far. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2009
growler sent by psprings sampled with the crew 9/27/09.
slightly hazed pinot/red/cherry stained wood with a small tannish head.
phenomenal aroma... intoxicating... fairly sweet yet full of tart cherries, cinnamon, dough, grass, minerals/slate, earthiness and brown sugar.
the flavor is incredibly reminiscent of tart red cherry pie... along with cinnamon, slate, grass, skin bitterness and a nice tannic dryness. tart dry finish leads into a lingering fruity aftertaste... fruity, but in no way sweet.
medium bodied, dry, prickly and delicious. something very comforting in this one! 10/4/9/4/18/4.5 SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Growler shared by hellbilly and psprings. Thanks guys! Deep maroon pour with almost no head. Tart cherries, cinnamon and other spice, plums and malt. Liquid cherry pie. Simply amazing. VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 26, 2010
On tap at the brewery.14 oz pour in to a chalice. Aroma of tart cherries and hints of citrus hops. Dark red with a small off white head. Tart with a sweet finish. Amazing beer. Worth the journey.

The aroma of cherry pie, delicious, juicy, tart cherries. Amber rbright red appearance with a nice head on top. The flavors of juicy tart cherries so smooth on the palate. There is no notes of vinegar, very smooth. hrking (140) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Wow what an awesome surprise this one was. Pours a ruby red with nice little lace and a great tart cherry aroma. flavors are more of the same with cheery pie consistency of slightly tart cherries and I can even taste what seems like a little cinnamon .. very much like a New Glarus Belgian Red but a totally different beer being not as syrupy sweet as their cherry beer this one is a winner for sure.. devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Draft at the brewery, pours bright red low head, aroma is light cherry. Taste is huge cherries with great tart mouthfeel, awesome! Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Growler shared by BOLTZ7555 – you rock J! Pours cloudy iced tea brown with a thin white head. The nose is light sour fruits, faint vinegar and apple pie spice. The taste is apple juice, cinnamon, nut meg, cherry skins, malt and light vinegar. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Very good! chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Growler into my Narke tulip.
The beer pours a dark plum/marroon, with a light tope head that doesn’t raise much, not a ton going on here...The aroma is super sweet, lots of sweet cherries that have a candy/medicinal quality. Light tartness. Its pretty nice, could use a little more tartness to even it out better...The taste is sweet light tart but good, after awhile a little too sweet, its almost sticky like candy. Again with a litlte more tartness this would be great...The feel is really nice, almost stickyness in the mouth....It starts out easy to drink, but after a glass overwhelmed by sweetness. Good thing I split this with three people. This is good for a glass but thats it.
Overall, this is a really good, a total fruit beer not much of a lambic quality at all. Very similar to NG Belgian Red. I would recommend this for any fruit beer fans.
