Actually this beer exceeded my expectations. Has that real cherry flavour and is readily available unlike other lambics. A great introduction to the style. My and my friendís girlfriends also thoroughly enjoyed it so I guess its one for the ladies as well.

A bit too lite for a lambic. For the price, a good intro to the style.

On tap: Typical kriek lambic. But lighter in body and sweeter then some of the others i have tried.

SteC (131) - Oostende, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2002
Justlike the gueuze, this is a commercial kriek, and tastes very sweet, not fruity at all, like you taste with the lindemans one.

A drain-pour. Beer needs to stay away from cherries.

If you find Lindemans too sweet, try this instead. Beautiful sight in the glass with its deep reddish body and plentiful foam that looks like strawberry mousse. Cherry (no kidding) is strong and dominant in the aroma but passes over the tastebuds a little more quietly. Spritzy carbonated palate has a tartness that helps fight off the cherries.

Nuffield (3635) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Pours with a decent head. Red but slight brown around the rim, as you would find with an aged red wine. Cherry, to be sure, but changes in the mouth to suggest strawberry and raspberry. The sweetness really hit my mouth a bit hard--a bit artificial to that extent. (on tap, Lowlander, Drury Lane, London)

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2002
Cherry, apple that makes a aroma-mixture between sweet and sour. Purple head, light sourness, kicks! Syrupy and a long finish. Nice refreshing kriek
