On tap @ the Top-Off, Camp As Sayliyah, Doha Qatar. Crystal clear ruby red beer with a cherry and wood aroma. Light bitter, mellow without the overly sweet taste I was expecting. Very nice mild cherry taste. An ok kriek outside of Belgium.

Pyobon (943) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2014
(On tap) Clear ruby red with big pink white head. Lovely cherry aroma perhaps a bit glacé cherry rather than fresh cherry. Well carbonated with soft velvety mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and glacé cherry with a little balancing tartness. Over a nice easy drinking Kreik. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (789) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2014
0,25L bottle (as Belle-Vue Kriek Classique, ABV 5,1%), BB 03.07.15. Pours red with light pink head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, sour, cherries. Flavor is sweet and dry, cherries, acidic, watery. Overall: no bad, but very simple and little bit too watery.

Roodbruine kleur, weinig kersensmaak, wel een zuurtje, veel minder dan andere kriek bier.

Experiment_Ale (1033) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2014
From a can bought at a convenience store at le Plaza in Brussels. Pours hazy rose light pinkish red. Aroma is sweet candy syrup. Taste is cough syrup, gross off flavors. This beer is a horrible mistake.

Au nez on sent la cerise la mûre et le cassis (on sent bien le sucre aussi) La Mousse et épaisse et tiens en bouche on sens évidemment la cerise mais elle est pas tres gazeuse fade en faite par rapport à l'odeur quelle a on ne s'attend pas à ce que je sois aussi peu sucrée en bouche

Ruikt naar kerssnoepjes. Smaakt naar kerssnoepjes. Heerlijk zoetig maar ik reken het eerder onder een soort frisdrank dan onder bier.
