An unimpressive sour ale. More acidic sweetness than any tartness. Medium bodied. Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
No notes on this, only numbers....however it was a gorgeous day to sit on the patio watching people. RichardGretton (4754) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2009

Brewery Brewpub, Vancouver. Dark brown beer with a lightly fruity and musty aroma. The flavour is bitter and warming. Overall a very average beer where you struggle to taste the fruit.
Lots of fruit in the nose, but not nearly as sour as I was expecting. Slightly medicinal but not sweet or syrupy, just really nice fruit. Soft on the palateand has the slightest bit of sour on the tail. This would be great if it was bigger, barrel aged for about 3 years with some brett added.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 I don’t make it down to the brewpub often enough to get in on the sour cherry every year but when I have had it, I found it surprisingly delicious, with a lovely color and surprisingly assertive tartness. Sure, it’s not the world’s best cherry beer but I wish more BC brewpubs would make interesting beer. I’m tired of the array of crap on tap.

Amber with hints of red. Light head and some stringy lace. Slight hint of cherries in the nose along with some bitterness. Malty and a touch sour. Some more of the cherry comes out, though it’s not too profound. Bitter at the end with a smidge of cherries. Crit (3973) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2006
Ruby color, thin white head fades to nothing very quickly.Acetic cherry nose.
Tart and vinegary taste, very light cherry flavor,bordering on the edge of just being vinegar. Poor effort CapFlu (5126) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on Thursday, November 23rd, 2006. They referred to this as the Sour Cherry Kriek. Pours a thin, white dissipated head with a ruby orange body. Nose of sour cherry pits. Tart. Tonic. Cherry. Hmph... seems right. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Tart cherries with plenty of underlying sweetness and strong spices (clove, cinnamon) in the aroma. Clear amber body is topped by a low but lasting, fine bubbled, off white head that leaves some lace as it eventually recedes to partial cover. Spicy cinnamon and cloves are joined by light banana esters that complement the tart cherries. Sweetness builds throughout but stops short of cloying. Alcohol notable in the aftertaste. Medium body is quite dry with lively effervescence and some alcohol warming. Sampled on tap at the brewpub while watching the snow fall! DuctTape (15) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2005
Cloudy amber colour, i found that the aroma was fairly strong, but i could not tell exactly what it was, there was cherry, but also something almost smokey. The taste however i found to be very cherry with what felt like a hint of spice. A little cough syrupy almost in flavour.
