Orange/ruby in color with tiny head. Aroma of sour cherries and malt. Nothing special, but not bad either. Just average. Sugary sweetness stays on the palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle from a supermarket in Budapest, hazy pinkish red colour, no head or lacing whatsoever. Fruity cherry aroma with some hints of vanilla and citrus very light hops, taste is sweet initially with significant sourness that gets stronger towards the short finish with an acetic feel. Medium body, watery texture, virtually flat carbonation. Not a particularly unpleasant lambic, quite good if you’re into sour cherry, could be a bit more carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25cl. The beer starts fruity-sweet, but not artificial. A bit like the small red lollipops we had as children. Very fruity and intense, sweet, but not too sweet. The mainpart is also a bit sour, which fits good to the sweetness. The aftertaste is long, fruit, cherries, and sweetness. Even a bit of wood is noticeable.
--> Nice - the Oude Kriek with sugar. But still refreshing.
