COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very intense Belgian style sour cherry beer. Packed with whole tart cherries for a HUGE mouth-filling flavor. This is NOT a typical ’flavored’ beer, rather, the fruit is used in such a way to create a traditional albeit unique beverage.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 I finally got to try this one. Very unique flavor which I greatly appreciated. Much more drinkable than I would have expected - I could drink a whole growler of this stuff. Very full flavored, but still refreshing and easy to drink. Medium bodied. Lightly tart finish.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2009 Hand bottle thanks to BK for sharing this one after his drive to the brewery. Pours a pink ruby body with a pink head. Aroma is gushing with sweet cherries, and some tart fruit flavors. Loaded with a nice sweet acidic tart cherry madness. I almost asked him to just share the whole growler. So good!

Pours a murky dark reddish pink colour and a creamy tan/pink head. Has an aroma of cherries, and fruit juice. Flavour is similar to the aroma. Very tart cherry flavoring.  Goes down easy like juice. Very tart taste with soft carbonation. Ooohh, I loved this stuff!!

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!!

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.

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

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.
