Two words for this beer Sweet & Sour. Pours a deep red color with a nice pink looking head. Sweet smelling aroma. The taste is sweet/sour cherries. A must try, I've never tasted anything like it!

UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 i have always liked Kriek.... I hate it when fruits are added in beer but this combination works! And the belgians already knew before others even got the idea to add something.. Very nice, strange combinaties, with a nice taste left after every drop

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Pours a reddish brown mix with a whitish red head. The smell is of black or maraschino cherries. The taste is a little tart and strongly reminescent of cherries but is not as potent as I was hoping. Finishes well with slight tartness but seemed to be lacking an edge.

Moderate tan head. Rich brown/reddish color. Not overpoweringly cherry flavored, which is nice. The oak comes through rather nicely.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2003
Poured a deep red with foamy pink-white head. Aromas of cherry. Sweet cherry taste with slight tartness and a hint of maltiness. slight lingering hop taste. Lacing on the glass, though no head retention.

Its taste reminds me the old days when I was drinking cheap Polish Wino brand Wino. The cherry content was not overly aggressive yet mouth feel was strongly earthy, slightly acidic.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2003
Strong aroma of cherry and plum. Nice frothy, pink lasting head with beautiful lacing. Hue is ruby red. Flavour is very sweet and heavy on the cherry with a tangy sour and flat finish. Although quite tasty, I will wait until next summer to bring this one out. Beats any cooler I've had.

1/24/03: bottle. nice full rocky head, which is a white- pink blush color. head diminishes to a strong medium size with lots of healthy lacing. heavenly aroma with whiffs of fermented cherries. sensational deep rosè color. a tiny bit of sweet which immediately turns into a tart and sour cherry flavor. more of a mature taste than Lindemans and in my opinion a better quality lambic.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Red body with a nice, white head. Lacing.
Smell is sour cherries.
Tastes like a sweet and sour candy. Still not as sour as I like it with the fruitiness. Starting to pick up the vinous character of this beer.
Carbonated like dry champagne.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2003
Cherry dominates aroma. Pours a lovely reddish brown with a thick head. Quite sweet, cherry flavour is the major standout. No hops to speak of, a sipping beer, kind of tastes like a wine.
