3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375cl bottle. Transparent, red with small and red head. Nose : cherries, apple and tart notes. Sip : creamy with moderate carbonation. Sweet with tart and cooked cherries. Extra sourness comes on the end. Meanwhile the beer is quite balanced and easy to drink. I usually add some honey or sugar but this one is sweet enough. Nice refreshment.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle on several occasions - taken from notes (21/05/2011). Pours clear deep red with a purple hue, light pink head, persisting. Aromas of some earthy cherries (not really "krieken", which is much more sour) and lots of almonds, and even cherry stones. Not as elegant as I wish it would be. Light body with nice carbonation, but too much sweetness for my taste, taste is cherries. A clear example of a commercial kriek, not my favourite Kriek at all.

A nice blackberry-red colored beer with a nice pink layer of foam. It has a nice sweet-sour aroma of cherry’s. A nice sweet-sour of caramelized cherry’s. A nice long lasting aftertaste of caramel.
Een mooi, cassiskleurig rood bier met een lichtroze schuimkraag. Een lekker zoetzurig aroma van kersen. De smaak is ook lekker zoet, van zoete kersen en caramel. Een lekkere zoete karamel-achtige nasmaak blijft lekker hangen.

Dark ruby read pour lots of frothy pink white head. Aroma is basically as described, sour cherries and a mild hint of almond, more on the tart side for sure. It’s like drinking cherry soda, sweet cherries up front, with a mild sour finish. Not something you’ll want to dive into if your expecting some serious complexity, but hey its hot as hell and hell its hot so this seems to be going down prettttyyy...pretty good.
