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

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 (2224) - 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.

Excellent balance between the base beer and fruit. Nice oak character, good acidity, not too dry or tannic.

katrinaez (1662) - 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

Seems bit one dimensional cherry. Thou that cherry impact is quite lovely, I would like more depth to it. Some wood dry impact in background. Moderate tartness with light sweetness Decent, but bit boring

Pours a clear cranberry color with a thin pinkish ring. Sour, tart fruity aroma. Fairly thin texture and light body. Crisp tart cherry flavor with a lightly dry finish. Not as good as the other Verhaeghe cherry flavored ales but still tasty and pretty enjoyable.
