Pours hazy brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and fruity with some cherries and sugard. Taste is also very sweet with a lot of cherries. Medium body and carbo. Too sweet.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- dunkelrote Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - leichtes Kirscharoma verbunden mit einer dezenten Holznote - passende Carbonisierung - im Antrunk ist die leichte Kirschnote angenehm säuerlich und nicht aufdringlich - im ganzen Verlauf bleibt es dabei, die Kirsche ist da aber dominierend oder alles beherrschend wie bei anderen Cherrylambics Fazit: Gutes Kirschlambic, bei welchem sich das Kirscharoma dezent im Hintergrund hält

Got this on tap i Riga. While many kriek beers are too sour for many (not for me, but for my wife) this is very tasty, easy to drink and still not too sweet.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2016 Bottle. Pours dark red to black with decent pinkish head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of cherry, grape, toffee licorice. Has a warm wine-like body. Sour on the tongue and palate. A lot of cherry, vinaigrette, and potent tartness. Nuances of toffee and star anise. Quick tarty finish.Really nice winter drink for the festive period. Little too sour to enjoy in the sun. Definitely a top in its style. The more reviews I do the more I question the veracity of ratebeer?s overall scoring.

Deep red to black colour, small pinkish head. Sugary aroma of cherries and toffee. Sweet fruity taste, light sourness. Juicy cherry aftertaste. Creamy palate with above average carbonation. Really nicely balanced for a fruit beer, not too sweet. Enjoyed it a lot.
