Cherry red colour with a medium size lasting off white head and good lacing. Mainly cherry flavours with an oily texture that lasted well into the finish, some wood characters which would come from the oak maturation. Nice beer but a bit too sweet for my liking, it would be good with chocolate at the end of a meal.

Something different. I like it when I think of it as a cherry drink as opposed to thinking it is a beer. There is something a little jarring about the mix of flavours which I am guessing a better quality kriek may overcome? It does look very nice in a flute with a solid white head, persistent lacing and thick red colour. It has an unusual astringency (from the cherries?) which is a nice change.

Beer 6 Belgium trip. Ordered the unidentified kriek off the hotel room service menu for kicks just to see what would be sent up. No surprise, this stuff is everywhere in Belgium. Deep rose color, light pink head, nose of sour cherries. Flavor matches, but a little too sweet for me. No real funk here. Fun, but not serious.

Wine, Beer or cheap pop??? I sure don't know! This to me is not a beer.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Ruby color, pink head. Lighter sweet cherry aroma, some woody elements. Syrupy sweet cherry flavor, was cloying and artificial. Not very good.

Nate (3824) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Weak cherry aroma. Slightly sweet & woody. Ruby red clear with pink lacing head. Med body with med-high carb. Weak, watery cherry flavored beer. Light hops & weak finish/after. OK but not a great kriek.

Dark amber bordering on brown. Tight, white head is large and lasting, leaving behind full sheets of lacing. Sour cherry aroma has hints of oak. Flavor is not strong of cherries, surprisingly. The fruity sourness is there, but comes off as slightly artificial and medicinal. Bitter woody finish is a little off. Not overly carbonated, which is nice. Still, I've had better lambics.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2003
dark mahogany colour. Fizzy, carbonated head. Smells like sour cherries. Tastes like sour cherries also, slightly bitter aftertaste. It didn't really taste a whole lot like beer, but it was quite interesting.

Reddish brown color with a pinkish head. The taste is sweet with fruits and cherries. Finishes slightly bitter an unpleasant.
