WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pretty easy to drink for a lambic. First, only moderate lambic nose, more fruit than funk or brett or lactobacillus. Hazy reddish pink, small vanishing head. Taste of cherries and a little sour notes, maybe yoghurt. Moderate palate. Again, easy to drink, hard to dislike, hard to love.

ulrikolsen (268) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2016
Tap. Pours deep clear red with lazing light rosa head. Aroma is lightly malty and a rich nose of cherries and is light sweet. Taste has cherries, sweet and sour in good balance yet malty in taste and intensifying in aftertaste. Classic.

Blood-red color with small bubbles pinky head. Carbonation is little. Aroma is cherry compote with little sourness. Middle body, sweetness, the tongue spreads slightly sour.

Oh, come on. This one is fruity, and you knew it when you ordered it. That’s the whole point of this beer. It won’t diminish your self-worth to admit that you like it. Nice and sweet, a crowd-pleaser.

danlo (2473) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
250ml bottle from Beers of Europe online. Pours a reddish colour with a foamy pink head leaving lacing. Aroma of sweet dark cherry. Taste is dark cherry, berries, sweet & sour, with some notes of dough, biscuit and funk. Light to medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry sweet cherry finish. Quite OK.

arsol (975) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Rød farge med fluffy rosa skum. Lukter sure kirsebær, litt som sukkertøy. Mye tammere i smak enn lukt. syrlig avslutning.

Pyrmir (5474) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2016
330 ml bottle as LA Becasse Kriek, in Provence. Clear red with pink head. Aroma is candy like, cherry pith and slight sour notes. Taste is sweet, cherry candy, cherry pith with a slight tart edge to it. Bad.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2016 Burk från flygplatsen, Bryssel. Lätt rosafärgad med rosavit skumkrona. Lätt doft av körsbärssaft. Mediumsöt, blaskig kropp. Lätt smak av körsbär.

Burk köpt på flygplats i bryssel. Sötsliskig doft av vingummi och körsbär. Förvånande nog inte lika söt som doften antyder. Känns som ett mineralvatten spetsat med lite körsbärssaft. Drickbart men inte mycket mer.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2016 Bottle @ Koelschip (Mikkeller & Friends) Bought because it came in a small cute bottle for a very low price, thinking why not. Could not finish. I don’t even want to know how they make this crap, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it neither contains lambic or krieken - this pugently sweet motherfucker with a taste that seems like a combination of aspartame and cherry extract.
