Beautiful clear cherry red, good red head. Sourish and sweet cherry nose. Candy-like cherry flavor, some sourness in the finish. Otherwise overwhelming essance cherry flavors.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich rose color, darker than a rose wine anyway. Pinkish head that dissapears quickly, leaving behind some lace. The smell is cherry, dew, some wet and dank, and glue - all of which in a positive sense. The taste is sweet but not overpoweringly so. Some honey, wheat, cherry, and some balancing sourness. The palate also does well to counteract the sweetness.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ruby red color and pink head. Sweet aroma of Morello cherries and sweet caramel. Sweetness and again sweetness, with some artificial fruitness. Children’s syrup.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drinkable but simple fruit beer that lacks the complexity of a good kriek. Pours a cloudy cherry colour with a moderate white head. The nose is sour-sweet with strong glace cherry notes. Light, quenching palate, fine for the style. Sweet-sour cherries dominate the flavour. Way too sweet for my taste. (Bottle)

Bottle. Compact and enough creamy foam. Beautiful ignited and elegant red color; not much bubbly. Intense scent of cherries and sugar. Much light and cake. Little binding but altogether agreeable.

330ml brown bottle. Poured a hazy cherry colour, lavender head left plenty of lacing. Cherry aroma, seemed somewhat artificial. Notes of vanilla? Fizzy mouthfeel, more syrupy fruits and sugars. A very slight hint of tart/sour character in the aftertaste.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Good for a larf, tastes just like some kind of cherry soda or something. Not a hint of anything remotely beer related apart from the bubbles, not even a hint of sourness. A good beer for kids who are old enough to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep pink, stark raspberry color, shockingly so, with a fine helping of foam, itself pink and light...Aroma, sour cherries, but not too much so, there’s a smidgen of candy sweetness butting up against the tart.
Taste: Ooo! Tart, bracing, puckering, sweet, sour, fruity, then it goes off...grips the palate for a bit, then floats lightly away. Nothing wrong with that, surely does the trick as a fruity girly-drink, as a tidy dessert chaser, a sweet little nothing to tickle the tongue for a moment, then swiftly sorted away among the box of things done and had, and soon forgotten.
Hardly as good as even the saddest krieks out there, but not so knockable, neither.

hazy red, small pink head. aroma has mild hints of vanilla and cinnamon. the rest is like a fizzy melted cherry popsicle. thins out in the end.
