3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice cherry fruit kriek beer. It’s a bit straight forward with the cherry without too much going on. Thought it felt slightly watery too. But the flavors are well balanced and tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
37,5cl 2012 Vintage, bb10/2015 and earlier bottles. Little survives of the original robust barley-and-old-hop rustic funk origins of Boon lambiek in this kriekenlambiek inspired and marked by the softdrink-like sweetening of beers in Belgium since the ’80. What remains is a helplessly thin foundation of wheat-tart lambiek underneath a barrage of aspartame-sweet cherry syrup, monodimensional and only cloying when chilled like cherry coke. A strange return to dry form in the dry aftertaste to wipe away the Haribo Cherry Coke bottles.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red beer, pink head. Nose is sweet, syrupy, cherries. Flavor is sweet, some sticky notes, cherry tartness underneath, some dryness lingers. Too sweet for me.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The beer has a red color, like grenadine syrup. The beer pours a little drape of white rough foam. The smell is of cherry’s and there is a bitter aroma. The cherry flavor is not as artificial is a kriek can be. The taste is also of regular kriek. The tastes are mainly sweet and sour and there is a little dry sensation in the finish. Not beer is not that special.

2012 bottle. Looks smells and tastes like cherry soda. They shouldn’t call this a kriek

Ok done. Taste fresh cherry, not additive flavour. Not my kind of lambic, like much more gueuze.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Wild Wild Beer Fest. A bit on the sweet side. Almost like a raspberry dessert. Lots of fruit and a little more tart on the finish.
