3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 a mes rate:
fantastic. cherries and sugar throughout. deep cherry red appearance. sweet cherry flavour only very slightly bitter. instantly turns sour in the finish but just as quickly it is replaced with the sugar and then the cherries. even better on draught but sadly i can’t get that here. if you want a good kriek without the fierce lambic sour and tarty hit then i would say start here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep ruby with fine fast disapaering pink head. The aroma is full of cherry. The flavor is sour, bitter and sweet and lots of cheery in the aftertaste.

color was dark garnet, off-white tall foamy head. aroma is sweet cherry soda, faintly sour. flavor is kind of the same, with a little yeastiness. a little drier than the lindeman’s kriek.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite disappointing. Not exploding with fruitiness or tartness. A bit bland and chalky. A snoozer.

had this in antwerp belgium....this one as i remember wasnt quite as exciting as some of the other krieks we had encountered. more rock candy of a cherry sucker then the bold lemon acidic tartness you would expect. over bearing in a cherry manner and very one dimensional. somewhat less desireable then most others in this category.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Reddish pink in color with a slight pink tinged head. Some lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of Ludens cherry cough drops. Little hints of tart/sour poke through in the nose also. Thin and watery palate is disappointing. Flavors of cherry, slight bits of sour/tart. Moderately acidic and only slightly drying. A bit of a let down.

Pours a nice hazy ruby, thin white head, thin lacing. Aroma is cherries, butter, honey. Flavor is malty and toffee-ish, then sour and swett, lots of cherries, a mild dry finish. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, corked 375ml, 2002 vintage, alc. 4.5% (BB 09/2007)
Hazy deep cherry red, small creamy red head, some lace. Cherry and vinegar aroma, slightly metallic. Sour and tart cherry taste. Very dry, not sugary at all, so propably sweetness folds out when this is a bit aged. Some earthy notes too. Palate is actually quite watery, should have "more taste". Anyhow well-balanced lambic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of sour bing cherries surrounded by some barnyard funk. Cherry red body, pink head, medium carbonation. Taste is sour/tart with a thin vinegar presence and then it all gets dry and woody at the finish. Very nice.
