Now this is kinda interesting. Pure impulse made me grab one. Dark, dark brown with the slightest tinges of red. An off white, almost tan head sits a top, hardly going anywhere. Spotty lacing. Smells somewhere between cherries and something old and musty, but a good old and musty. Taste is on a fine line between tart cherries, an almost artificial cough syrup cherry and earthy, old leather of sorts. An interesting blend that almost works out. Just tart enough to tickle the tongue but not overpowering. Finishes dry and the cherry lingers. Glad I tried as it's good but not something I'd buy a pack of.

This is solid for a non BA brew especially at $2.50 a bottle! Next to Alexander rodenbach easy. Slightly sweet slightly tart. Good amount of cherry and not overbearing. Maybe has some Brett?

Where are cherries prevelant? Washington? Ok. And who’s famous from Washington? I have no idea. But if you know of someone, pretend that that famous person picked a bunch of cherries to brew this bad boy - cuz it’s heavy on the cherry like Jackie Gleason is heavy on the scale. Other than that, like Robert DeNiro’s career, it’s just alright.

Peace.

Dark brown with red tinge and a low off white head.

Smells of clay earth leather and red strawberry, cherry and currants. Sweetness on the nose like red fruit gummy candy.

Earthy and old mahogany. Dank like an old basement and old library books. But then the fruit kicks in and its lively and fresh. Slightly sweet but balanced with sour. Cherry is dominant on the end.

Excellent light sweet tart finish. Dry and satisfying.

The downside here is that the extremes are too far apart. Too old then fresh. Sweet then tart. The cherry sometimes comes off artificial like cough syrup. Not my favorite, and kriek has never been my favorite, but a curious exercise in beer none the less.

Color looks like tea or cola to me with a course head, that flattens into velvet, then quite thin. Smells obviously cheery like with an earthy component. Tastes like a cheery beer, but not candied nor contrived, it's balanced as well as I could imagine it being. I saw tart in the descriptions, but it's not something I would think major in the taste profile. It drinks smooth, slightly rich, as I expected it to be and it goes down well. A bit pricey in these parts, but worth it for the right occasion, like Tuesdays. Awesome beverage. I recommend it.

An excellent beer! It's mostly sweet, with a (great, but not too great) touch of tartness from the cherry. The fact that it is not so tart make it a very drinkable beer in any situation. No hoppiness at all.
