3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Much darker on the pour and also a little drier and heavier on the palate than the other krieks I have tried. A little more "winey" than the others as well with a kerosene character

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml green glass bottle with a paper wrapped label pours a dark ruby red color with a finger of light pinkish head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by cherries with some hints of yeast and grains. Taste is a cherry fruit and malty sweetness with a light cherry tartness and dry yeasty finish. Light bodied with abundant carbonation. Overall, a little sweeter than I like in a fruit beer, but still a nicely crafted and tasty brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 375ml wrapped bottle with a best before date of 22nd May 2016 and poured into an oversized wine glass. The beer poured a clear deep ruby colour with a one finger very light pink head that dissipated slowly ending in patches of foam and nice lacing. Mainly sweet cherry and raspberry aromas. Basically candy berry smells. Tastes are sweet tart cherry, a little bit artificial but getting to the cough syrup flavours that I like so much. Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation. Overall, this was nice, although maybe a little on the sweet side.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle pours a deep ruby reddy brown. Lots of pink head, which lasts pretty well and loads of lacing. Nose is cherries with a bit if almond and belgie yeast. Taste is all cherries/cherry syrup. Really concentrated ott cherry flavour. Nice sour finish balances things a touch. Fairly high carbonation and a good, full mouthfeel, but its a bit syrupy and cloying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Robe brune, reflets rouges. Nez assez monolithique sur la cerise. Bouche assez simple, du fruit, de la fraîcheur et de l’amertume, équilibrée mais loin en dessous d’une Oude Kriek.
