750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #230.

Appearance - Bright pink body. Deep red when there's a lot in the glass. Light pink head that lasts forever. Thick collar and great retention.

Smell - Lightly metallic. Cherry. Not very juicy aroma, but cherry. Lemon. Dry grass and wood.

Taste - Cherry is a bit sweeter. Quickly dries out. Woody. Lemony tartness. Doesn't quite have the complexity of the base Le Roar.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - This disappoints just a little bit after drinking the regular Le Roar. Still a great kriek.

The beer trading hysteria hasnt event settled from this beer's first release and here we are getting a chance to sample batch 2 of Grrrz Kriek on tap. Served in a snifter, the brew appears a clouded pink color with a white head that fades slow leaving patchy to stringy lace on the glass.

The smell is filled with notes that are cherry, pitted and earthen. Very natural smelling of fruit with a kiss of something almost like cinnamon added to further drive home the suggestion of a cherry pie scent. Some lemony lactic tartness is also present adding to the overall brightness of this beer.

The taste is tart with plenty of natural sour cherry flavoring but well balanced with notes of earth, cherry pits and slight herbal accent. A hint of oak is present towards the back and like the aroma, has a soft spicy aspect like cinnamon. There is some tannins present that adds to a sharp feel to this brew.

This is light bodied with modest carbonation. A very well crafted beer that I just cannot speak highly enough of. As far as krieks go, this is up there with the best of them having a wonderful balance of wild character tempered by barrel nuance and fruit addition. The drinkability is downright crushable. Far and away this is my favorite of the Grrrz variations. Its no wonder this beer is so highly coveted, if I had spare bottles I would drink them all.
