Cherry fruity aroma. Similar to a life-saver candy crushed up. Extreme bubbly carbonation, very thin on mouthfeel. Doesn’t seem to have the aged sour funk for a Kriek. However not offensive. Just lacks some immersion.

[10/9/13] Bottle at my hotel room in Brussels. 5.1%. As Belle-Vue Kriek Classique. Clear deep red with a big foamy pink head. Aroma of artificial cherry candy and some corny notes. Sweetish flavor with artificial cherry flavoring, sugary notes, a bit of cough syrup notes, a grainy note and a slightly drier finish with a faint sourish hint. Light-bodied. Not completely awful, but still not good at all.

Nice dark strawberry colour, good carbonation. Aroma of cherry, strawberries, slightest hint of lemon. Just on the sour side of the palate, refreshing lasting aftertaste. Summer in a bottle!

Sweet kriekenbier, may be listed as lambic style here, but I can’t detect any lambic taste in it. Fortunately, the beer has some sourness from the cherries.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear red with a pink head. Cherry aroma is okay but the taste is way too sweet, like much sweeter than sweet cherries.
