On tap at Fresh Craft, poured a light reddish color with no head whatsoever. I couldn't pick up any notable aromas and the taste was not good at all: under-carbonated/flat, no sourness and very little cherry with a thin/watery mouthfeel. To say I was not impressed would be an understatement. Will not visit this one again.

On tap at Asher Brewing.

Pours an orange amber with a very short fast fading white head.

Nose is very light and unassertive with a simple and pleasant light toast character, not much else. I don't get any Kriek character.

Mouthfeel is light and thin although fresh and bright. There is no carbonation and no sour character whatsoever, although there is a light citric character.

Flavor is simply not there. Light and thin, it actually tasted like watered orange juice. I liked the brewery, the staff and the other brews offered at Asher. I was surprised that this was being served. Not Asher's best effort.

Had this one on tap last night at Fresh Craft in Downtown Denver. Poured a nice rusty brown color, with really no head to speak of. Aromas of tart cherries, almonds and oak. On the palate, very light bodied, watery and under carbonated. Flavors were quite muted, light cherries and little to no sourness. Unimpressive, to say the least.
