3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl can into glass. Barman in Ghent told me ’kriek is for ladies and gays’. Oh, those crazy Belgians! Nose is subdued malty cherries. Looks like cranberry juice with a thin tan head. Flat beer with sour (then sweet) cherry palate. Refreshing and the same price as soft drink in Belgium. Incredible!

Nice cherry beer, although it doesn’t really seem like a Kriek lambic, as it’s not very sour.

Honestly start wasnt promissing. Felt too sweet and syrupy but drinking more it got better and better. Foam increadible. thick dense, color clear full red. Very good looking beer. Aroma maybe not so much very quite cherry and even less sourness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear red with medium sized light pink/orange head. Cherry soda, light tart berries, dough, lemon rind, twigs. Not so nice vegetal/chemical bitter finish. Quite sweet with tart touch. Medium bodied. Artificial tasting, but less sweet than I remember it to be. Nice alcoholic alternative for a soda.

Czerwone piwo o puszystej i sztywnej ale niezbyt obfitej pianie oraz świeżym wiśniowym aromacie. W smaku słodkie, wiśniowe, lekko kwaskowe, orzeźwiające. Przypomina trochę musujące wino owocowe.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle (BB 09.08.15). Ruby red body, medium pinkish head. Aroma has sweet cherries. Taste initially has sweet cherries but later turns salty like seawater or wallpaper glue. What the hell? Some moments later the cherry fruitiness emerges again to mix with the saltiness and this creates a sensation of blood in my mouth. Awful. I don’t object to sweetened fruit lambics (in fact, I just gave a 3.0 to Mort Subite Kriek) but this is just gross. Drainpour.
