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.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[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.

Tommyxl (16) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2013
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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at cafe at a Campsite in Spa. Rosey pink ref colour with frothy pink head. Aroma is really sweet cherry, cough drops. Very sweet flavour artificial cherry. Palate is syrupy sticky medium carb. Slight tart in the finish. Too sweet for me.

MarcoDL (2058) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2013
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.

Pours clear red with a pink head. Cherry aroma is okay but the taste is way too sweet, like much sweeter than sweet cherries.
