Bottled. Ruby red colour, sour cherry aroma, sweet taste. Nothing to write home about but a pleasent drink on a warm day.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Pleasant aroma of cherries. The cherry flavor goes from tart to sweet. A macrobrewery (InBev) version of the style, a bit bland and ordinary.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 (on bottle) These dry, fruit beers tend to be odd for the averege beer-lover; me. But having this, deep ruby brew with a short-lasting pink head, to a sweet(very sweet)desert, actually was a good experience. A bit artificial, metallic aftertaste, though. RERATED: More experienced now, but it´s still a very sweet beer, candy if you like.

Deep garnet in color. Not much head to it, and a few old yeast clumpies. Nose is oddly in balance for a lambic--must, yeast and tart cherry versus malt and hay. Body is oily and the taste is again oddly indifferent for what should be an aggressive style.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Cloudy burgundy-brown coloured body with a thin pinkish head. Aroma of cherries, malt, tartness and some sweetness. Medium-bodied; Mild tart flavour with hardly any tartness and barely any malt quality. Aftertaste not too pleasing-actually mild compared to a normal lambic. Overall, I'd much rather have a liefman's or lindeman's, but this was available on tap...so I figured i'd try it. I had a pint of this on draught at a small pub in Toronto, Ontario on 09-April-2004.

Dark red. Aroma of cherries and yoghurt. A bit sweet and beery flavor with acidic tones and some bitterness. Too industrial kriek for my taste

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2004
A lovely looking brew with a nice head and a beautiful cherry aroma. First sip is a bit strange - unless you subsist on fruity beers - but it settles down nicely and a bit of sourness comes forth. Sweetness disappears and it leaves a nice aftertaste.

While not specifically unpleasant this is far too Vick's Cough Syrup-like to be overly pleasant. Some sweet cherry aromas lead to a syrupy cherry taste. Mild sour and bitter touches to the cherry as it moves to the finish line. Really the ruby red appearance is the best thing about the beer.

great pink ruby hue, with a slightly pinkish head. aroma is sweet, added sugar? definate pleasant cherry and woody aroma backed by a tart acidic smell. once on the palate the cherrys again, with some other dark fruit, plums and dark grapes i think. Woodyness again in the palate but i think it may be from the cherry seeds more than the oak barrels. Slightly tart, but not as tart and dry as i had expected from a lambic, i expect there are sugars added after fermentation to make it more palatable for the general public.

Bottle sample- Pours a light pink head, with a dark ruby red body. Smells like sour cherries and sugar. Taste is bitter, fruity and refreshing. Nice sharp bite on the tongue and throat. A definite pleaser.
