strong and slightly acidic cherry aroma, pours with a dark red hue and a slightly red-tinged head, well laced, mild cherry flavour with moderate carbonation, quite rich and very refreshing

Dark red color - darker and more beer-like than most krieks, with a pink frothy head. Aromas of sour cherries. Tastes drier than I expected, although there is still plenty of cherry present. Smooth, creamy and sour, with a woody, oaky hint towards the finish. Aftertaste is surprisingly short and dry, with some lingering fruity notes.

Bottle: Pours a murky red colour with a light pink head. Pleasant stoney aroma, with good amounts of steel, dust, sour cherry skin, dirty leather and limestone gravel. . . Flavours are a bit absent, but slightly bitter: light sour cherries, bitter wine, not overly sweet, and not complex enough to be of much interest. Very metallic finish, not quite the great stuff that I love. . .

Dark red with a white tinged red head. Smells like ummm cherries. Tastes a bit too medicine like.

I found this one simple and one dimensional. Like adding cherry cough medicine and lactic acid to a budlight. The complex flavors in a good lambic are absent and the cherry taste was cloying.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2003 On tap at Boucherville's Bocké bistro. Cherry bubble gum aroma. Nice medium to round texture, syrupy taste, tart. Decent

Strong cherry aroma, reminds me of lifesavers. Not super sweet. Still not to my tastes but ok.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 A great and classic lambic ale. This is really a Cherry, Barley champagne. But delicious, sweet and unusual. Fantastic with dark chocolate and belgian waffles. Not an everyday quaffer but amazing and unique.

Very intersting brew. Pours up looking more like wine than beer. Aroma is dominant cherry as is flavor which is a little sour. Pretty yummy.
