Bamaboy1975's rating

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a deep ruby red with a one finger slightly pink head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cherry, candied sugar, strawberry, and sweet tarts. The flavor was of sweet malt, strawberry, cherry, sugar, cherry syrup, and subtle sweet tart. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I will warn all who approach this brew that it is a lot more sweet than some other Krieks out there. This does cover up quite a bit of the subtle flavors that were present as I could not pick them out unfortunately. For what they were aiming for it really wasn’t too bad if I honest as the sweetness did carry throughout, but it wasn’t overpowering to the point where you think you are going to get diabeetus from drink a glass of it. A fairly well done brew that I wouldn’t mind having again in the future if more funky Krieks are not available at the time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SG111 (1673) - New York, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottled. Best by 06/30/20. Pours ruby red cherry, ruby-tinged white head. Aroma is tart cherry, sour vinegar, red-wine notes, sweet and sour. Very nice. Flavor is sweet dark tart cherries, vinegar, little oaky, medium acidity, pretty effervescent. Almost impossible to take one sip, the tart effervescent sweet cherry natures of it immediately begs another. Quaffable. Refreshing. Like drinking pleasant sour cherry soda. Love it.

hawthorne00 (3853) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Clear deep red with a pink head thats immediately at the rim. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, wood, bracken, lurking Balsamic vinegar. Not very sweet but a fair bit of body. Lots of cherries, as much drying wood as tartness, some slightly weird twiggy undergrowth notes. Goes well with washed rind cheese.

Towey1989 (2561) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear red colour with a frothy pale pink head. Aroma of cherry, oak, wood, a hint of funk and subtle marzipan. Taste of sour cherry, oak, some funk, slight marzipan and subtle spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a slick texture. A sour cherry finish with a little oaky bitterness in the aftertaste. A delicious kriek, sour cherry and the oaky bitterness work wonderfully. Not too sweet and not too tart, well worked.

katrinaez (1811) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Precisely what it should be. Tart, but not overly sour. A bit of sugar considering the style, which fits with the cherries.Aroma is sour and a bite of vinegar on the nose. Color is a nice brown red. Mouth, tasty tart and sour with some light sugars. Tap
