(bottle) pours a very hazy ruby-amber colour with a beige-pink head. aroma of heavy vanilla, raisins and cherry jam, with a hint of cheesecake and earth. flavour is mostly the same, vanilla, sweet cherries and raspberries, with a hint of cardboard and a very light-bitter finish. light-bodied with lively carbonation.

djd07 (5307) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Can. Pours a cloudy red with medium frothy pink head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong cherry skin, funk, and wood. Thin mouth, very sweet cherry, light tartness, funky, decent.

Une kriek agréable par son fruit et sa fraîcheur, pas très longue, ni très complexe elle reste néamnoins raffraîchissante.

Bottle. Deep red colour. Small white head. Aroma of cherry. Flavour of chemical sour cherry. Medium body and low carbo. Ok for one beer but I wouldn't try another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (609) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 19, 2015
Can from Masuyo’s. Poured into a duvel snifter. Clear pomegranate red with a nice pink foamy head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving behind a thin layer that lasts along with solid lacing. Slight aromas of cherry, bread and cranberry. Syrupy mouthfeel with a sweet and slightly tart taste on the palate. A little too sweet for my liking..prefer Cantillon honestly. Finish is also a bit too sweet and slightly cardboardy.

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.
