3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2004 vintage from presario. Cloudy, deep red colour with medium carbonation. A bit of oaky red wine type aromas co-mingle with some strong sweet cherry notes. The cherry flavors taste a bit artificial, but there’s enough sour and earthy (again reminding me a bit of a mildly tannic red wine) components to keep things from getting too sweet or overly simplistic. There’s still not really enough lambic character coming through, but this stuff is drinkable enough to stay out of the "dessert beer" category. Average.

A real Lambic Kriek, that´s not to sweet and you realy find the cherry´s in!
Only what i´m not sure if this is all natural Cherry taste, cause when you get the beer opend and the first arome comes to your nose the cherry taste is very intense, if this is all natural cherry this is a wonderful beer, maybe someone knows more about!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 12oz Bottle. Hazy, dark ruddy pour with a creamy layer of well sustaining pinkish head. Lots of cherry in the nose, but it has a bit of a medicinal quality to it and has an unpleasant sweetness that reminds me of an artificial sweetner. Medium bodied, creamy carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet, not sour. A little bit funky tasting, but other than that, not much that brings a lambic to mind. Lots of sweet, not so pleasant cherries. Not what I was wanting it to be.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an attractive red – a shade somewhere between cranberry juice and beet juice. Pinkish head of foam disappears almost instantly. Good cherry in the aroma.
Well, there’s cherry in here – mild and sweet, but very natural. It doesn’t taste like soda pop or artificial. A little bit of tangy lambic behind the cherries, not very prevalent. Medium bodied, with spritzy carbonation, it finishes a bit drier. A fun beer, but not a serious lambic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle an ciderey looking brownish red. The head is a quite impressive red tinged white at least 3.5 fingers high. Very sweet aroma that echoes the cherries, but also exhibits a wierd sweetness, almost like a rainer cherry or something. The flavor is not as sweet as the nose suggests, but still carries a little bit of it. Not overly sour like a true traditional, but certainly no Lindermans either. A nice crisp cherry flavor that is not dominated by sweet or sour. The mouthfeel could certainly be better, as the flavor quickely dissapates. All in all a very enjoyable beer that could please the masses, but satisfy the discerning.

Bottle. Deep red with a small head. Aromas are cherry drop sweets. Sour but not too acidic. Quite dry. Flavours are sweet and sour with lots of cherry. Some barnyard notes although not at the Cantillon levels. A tasty kriek.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in Beersel. Cloudy deep crimson with a creamy pink/brown head. Aroma is of marzipan, and some almost sweet cherries. Flavour of almond, cherry, also some light tartness, but nothing too spectacular. Long tart fruity finish. Beautiful and refreshing, a perfect beer after the 2 hour walk from Central Brussels to beersel.
