Sammy (11949) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
Musty and leather smell. Very cherry, light head. Opaque red. Sugar and vinegar acidic, not finishable, doesnt work altogether, the taste the fizzy carbonation. Too dry too thin,

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
(bottle 25 cl) In my version only 5,8% ABV. A different, stronger, more dry and less sweet Kriek. More beer, less fruit. A refreshing and quenching fruit-beer based on Sour Ale rather than sweetened lambic. If you miss Rodenbach Alexander, this is a decent substitute. 220896

Geiserich (4402) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottled:
Sourly aroma, medium strong cherry note. Brillant red color. Flavor is light sourly with remarkable cherry flavor, that isnt dominant. End is astringent with light notes of bitter almonds. Nice, but a hint to sweet.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2005
Light sour cherry aroma. Hazy red in colour with a small pink head. Sweet cherry start with a sour and slightly woody finish. Refreshing cherry beer.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2005
Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours dark ruby color with only ring of bubbles. Sour vinegar and tart cherry aroma and flavor. Leaves long aftertaste, but dry at the smae time if that makes any sense.

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 20, 2005
33 cl bottle. Red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is cherry all right with some brett detected also. Taste is more cherry soda than a Flemish Sour. Too many good beers in this category for this to be close to those.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Pours clear read with a little foamy pink head. Berries and cherry. Lemon cherry popsicle. Cherry cough drops and cinnamon in the finish. Fairly sour, not particularly sweet. Decent.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 10, 2005
Poured a clear ruby/mahogony. Aroma of horse blanket and tart cherry with some woodiness. flavors of sweet and tart cherry and light oak. Medium body

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pours red with a thin white head. Aroma very apparent of cherries and maybe vanilla also. Nice, tart lambic flavor and cherry is not too sweet like some Krieks. Slight amount of the oak flavor, but once again not overdone like some oak-aged brews. Well carbonated and dry mouthfeel. Pretty nice!

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle: Tary cherry aroma. Pours a deep transparent red with a tan head with a pink tint that fades quickly. Starts rather tart cherry but not as much so in the finish. Light vinegar in the background.
