3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours matte red with a small redish head. Nose of cherry and sour apple. Aroma and taste of the same. No depth, very sweet, not balanced, and the aroma is quite synthetic. Still enjoyable, although not so much for lovers of beer. This is glorified pop/soda.

Strong essence of Cherries clearly coming though on the nose
Pours Deep Red and cloudy much like a Wheatbeer
One dimensional taste of Cherry syrup, but enjoyable...
I call this a Jewsons beer... Does what I says it does on the tin!

(1) Never again. I love cherries - I did not taste cherries in this one - almost like the cork had ruined the lambic. What a shame.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
slight pinkish head. murky mauve colour. aroma is candysweetness, syrup cherries and then some paint thinner like smell, like terpentine or resin from pineneedles. taste is the same as the aroma, sweet, weird taste and afterteste. i had to try it, it was a strong urge, but is this stuff toxic? unlike any other kriek, thats for sure :) bottle 33cl

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another one I had many years ago (at Waagstuk in Antwerp, apparently) of which I found old notes on a beermat - but forgot to enter it here. Deep cherry red, pinkish head, sweet cherry jam, marzipan and sugary lemonade nose, very sweet and cloying in the mouth, sugary but not too ’unnatural’ or industrial tasting, sourish lambic touch far away but drowned in an equally sweet cherry candy aftertaste, though some faint lemony sourishness creeps through. Too bad De Troch had to turn to this type of ’beers’ in order to survive, but if this is what it took to keep this lambic brewery alive till our present day, why not. Not suitable for my palate, though.

375ml bottle. Just another sickly sweet fruit lambic, sweet cherry syrup, all you need to know.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
25cl bottle bb05/2016, Geers. Pours dull ruby-mauve, not that much head. Aroma of Haribo Kirschen diluted in half-fat yoghurt, funk all blanketed by artificial sweetener. About the same in taste, bit sticky in mouthfeel. Well-chilled this is still enoyable as a dessert or Radler on a formerly cultivated lamic base.
