2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet cherry beer with pinkish head and deep red colour, sugary and lots of cherry jam, bit malty, bit spicy, sourish touch, fortunately not too cloying but suffering from a thin mouthfeel and a lack of complexity. But a lot better than that awful Jules De Kriek, luckily.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy muddied ruby tinted copper coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of cherries, malt, light nuts, caramel and some figs with a touch of alcohol on the finish. Medium-bodied; Strong cherry flavour with some alcohol noticeable up front and a more subdued, caramel flavour with some malt on the back end. Aftertaste shows a little complexity with light spices, yeast and pit fruits all complementing the cherries, which aren’t too strong in this one. Overall, a decent beer, but not as good as I was expecting. Still, not a bad one to try, but I wish I packed my bag with a different kriek than this one! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Delices and Caprices in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €2,50 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the Atlantic for my fifth wedding anniversary on 09-August-2014.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: BB’10: Served in a shaker:
Medium sized vanilla colored creamy foamy head on top of a clear amber colored beer.
Aromas of brown sugars, bread, malts, toast, some dusty marzipan andcan hardly found and fruits...
The flavour reveals more fruit, but also a bit dull in the background covered with a nice but very light tart tone. Also hints of hay, malts, bitters, toast and bread.
Aftertaste is bitter with malts, light hint of something cherry ish and some dry floral hay ish tones...
Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery lighter dry texture. Meh...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle. BBE F/15. From belgianbeerfactory.com.
Dark murky red colour with a big foamy pink head.
The aroma is like cherry flavoured yoghurt and malt put together. Yummy! Not really. The flavour is also very strange... There’s not much Kriek qualities here, it’s just very odd fruit beer. There’s sourness and cherry essence messed with malty flavour. Not my favourite. This non-kriek is non-fantastiek.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Syrupy zesty cherry. Dank brownish with collapsing white head, intriguing. Faltering carbonation, main thread is some fruit left to mulch in the sun too long and scrubbed away. Cardboardy, gritty little sour. Nicht Fantastich.
Bottle, November in December Tasting.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours redish/pink. A very simple fruit beer that is very sweet, its more like a kids drink with added hubba-bubba bubblegum, not great

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours light red-brown with a pinkish white head. Aromas are shampoo and hubba-bubba. Taste is sickly sweet. Texture is thin, bit fizzy. Strange one for sure.
