This beer is dark ruby red in appearance as previously stated. Smells of tart cherry and reminds me of bing cherries in the springtime! Tastes is involved. Oak is there faintly but the star of this beer is the tart sour cherry taste that is exactly as one would expect. Overall this Kriek is quite beautifully done. I am biased as I am a big fan of cherries but if you are in search of a solid Kriek you won't be disappointed. Cheers

Poured from bottle into wine glass at the bayou in salt lake city. Deep ruby color with pink lacing..very effervescent. Big wine aroma with a lot if deep cherry aromas as well. Taste is very red wine like...with a big dose of cherry. Its thick abd heavy but still drinkable...just a tad bit sweet. At the same time its tart and dry. Really nice brew overall..just dont expect a cantillon. ..its good in its own right.

The pour was slightly effervescent with a rich ruby color and a raspberry tinged pink foam. The beer was insanely opaque, no light shined through it. Seriously one of the prettiest beers I have ever seen! I really love the contrast between the color of the body of the beer and the foam on top.
Wow. Insanely intense and complex. I can actually smell tanins, funk ( perhaps this is the so called horseblanket Michael Jackson described because its a bit gnarly but that's ok because I like it!), perfumed cherries and a hint of oak.
The tanins in this beer hit my tougue and were quite drying. And a huge amount of astringency hits as well, It almost reminded me of a merlot with a hint of cherry juice. There definitely was a hint of soil as well. The mouthfeel actually hits you before the flavors do. Perahaps this could use a bit of age to round out the pits even more?
Overall an excellent beer. Insanely rich. I highly recommend drinking it in smaller portions to fully savor it as this is definitely a sipping beer. I am also impressed that at almost 9 percent alcohol this beer showed no trace of hotness.
