Well, it's KRIEK WEEK with BeerDocT. I will review three Krieks this week, starting with a 12 ounce baby weighing in at 4% ABV (according to the bottle). Can't wait to get started! here goes... .

Appearance 4.0: Pours out a hazy, deep ruby red. Pink head that never got above a 1/4". Lots and lots of bottle conditioned bubbles all over the place. Beautiful beer.

Smell 3.75: Nice, but subdued nose on this brew. Obviously, cherries dominate, but there is also a very pleasant oaky tannin smell and nice bouquet from the yeast.

Taste 4.0: Front is smooth and silky, but has very little taste to speak of. Middle is where you get hit with the wonderful combination of oak, barley and tart cherries, with the cherries actually playing a supporting role. This is not an overwhelming cherry beer. Finish is smooth, with pleasant barley notes and a subdued and nuanced second bit of cherry goodness. Aftertaste is short, somewhat dry and pleasing with a very light cherry hint.

Mouthfeel 3.75: Creamy and somewhat light in the mouth, this beer certainly hit the carbonation level on the nose for the style.

Overall 4.0: Excellent kriek and a great way to kick off "kiek week." This is a nuanced and subtle kriek, certainly not what you might expect if your only exposure to the style was the Lindeman's Kriek (which is, nonetheless, excellent). This beer would be good with food and certainly is sessionable. I would love to have the opportunity to plow through a few gallons of this beer. Recommended...if you can find it.

Fairly vigorous pour down the middle yields a fluffy pink head that recedes down to almost nothing over the course of the glass. The body is red. Light lacing.

There is a nice earthy funk to go along with the sweet cherry notes.

Little touches of tartness and sharpness from the carbonation. Fairly light bodied. Big sweet cherry pie flavor. Little bit of mustiness and some metallic notes that dissipated after letting the beer breathe.
