a real fruit beer so this has to be rated as such too. in it’s category it’s a nice and refreshing beer and as the name says, with addition of extra cherries for extra taste. Those who want a bit less overwhelming cherry taste I suggest the normal belle vue kriek.

Dark pink colour, creamy foam. Very sweet nose of cherry candy, sugar and sweeteners. Light tart notes. More soda than beer.

25cl can on the train to Antwerp. Pours pinkish with an almost white head. Sweet and artificial cheery aroma with notes of almond. Sweet and candy like with just hints of acidity, more like a cherry soda than a cherry beer. Drinkable, but....

(bottle) clear amber-ruby colour with a frothy light-pink head. aroma of marzipan, powdered sugar and brown sugar, with a light hint of floral hops, some light butter and cherries. flavour is mostly cherries, vanilla and caramel, very sweet, with a touch of sugar icing and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

tbonde (157) - DENMARK - APR 16, 2015
25cl bottle@Brussels Airport in Kriek glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours dark red with pink head. Fresh aroma of cherries, wine gum and just a hint of malt. Sweet and sour (faintly) taste of cherries, cherry aroma, wine gum, almonds...and lo and behold: a little beer. Aftertaste sweet and tart. Not the taste of a natural product by any means, but I quite like it as a sweet, easy to drink beverage not really to be compared to beer.

Bottle. 4.1%. Best before 02.05.15. Pours a clear, golden/reddish amber, with a pinkish head. Artificial cherry aroma, dull. Flavour is rather sweet, with cherry, somewhat candy-like. A bit malty in the background. Same finish, dry, and with a hint of alcohol. Meh. 28.02.15.

(Flasche) Es hat einer rubin- bis kuperrote Farbe, ist filtriert mit einer rosa Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, kirschig, riecht nach Hribo, etwas Keller und säuerlich. Der Geschmack ist süß, fast sirupartig, ein bisschen nach Kirsche und leicht säuerlich. Der Abgang ist süß mit etwas Keller.

Alengrin (3105) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Summery, extra light and extra sweet version of the classic Belle-Vue Kriek, with deep ruby red colour and pink head. Sweet cherry candy and cherry jam and not much else; thinnish body, utterly sweet with cloying sugar sticking to the teeth. Horribly one-sided.

Drunk from 25cl bottle in Da Ginos, Brussels. Overly sweet saccharine after taste. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
