jaghana (5330) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 14, 2016
Can 33cl, shared by Calisky. A red beer with low head, nose is on cherries and sweets. Aroma is only on cherries, no lambic notes, kind of aspartame notes, very poor kriek. Finish on sugar.

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 13, 2016
Dark red with a pink head. Aromas of artificial cherry syrup dominates. Fine carbonation, slick and light bodied. Too sweet and clogging.

Cristobal37 (706) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 On tap at Mazl Tov Budapest. Sparkling red with fluffy foamy head. Sweet and tart cherry with a surprisingly soft and malty finish. Enjoyable and more drinkable than most citrus heavy cherry lambics. Nice.

Mr_Pink_152 (3370) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at the Lincoln AleHouse and Kitchen. Rose colour with a very pale pink head. Fruity cherry aroma and taste. Sweet rather than a deep cherry taste.

The_Osprey (5546) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - 330ml can at home in Richmond as ’Belle-Vue Kriek Classique’, 4.5%, BB March 2016. Deep red, opaque, lightly sparkling, foamy pink head doesn’t endure, full lacing. Aroma is mostly cherry juice, cherry yoghurt. Suggestions of other fruits but this is a cherry bomb. Body is medium to light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet, a bit washed out and metallic, cherry flavoured boiled sweets. Overall, a fun beer.

Gurthnar (4692) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle from Drinkshop. Quite complex cherry flavour and aroma, not so simple, straightforward and 100% cherry, rather containing all parts of it, including pits and skins. The rest of the beer character is subtle and undisturbing. Easy drinking, refreshing. Works for me.
