(draught of course) White-pinkish slim head; slightly hazy, beautiful cyclamen-red beer. Faintly sweets-nose, cherrydrops, some Brett shining trough. Rather sweet taste, but not sugared or syrupy cherry taste. It is as if sweet-cherry (kersen) juice has just been added, instead of sour cherry (krieken) juice. Touch of almonds from the stones. The fruit lends extra filling to the mouthfeel. However weirdly sweet, it never presents an artificial flavour profile. It just seems the wrong kind of fruit - for a lover of the sour-fruit theme. For a sweet tooth, however...

It looks very nice red! it has a sharp flavour of lingon berries and cherries and a fruity palate. It is pretty sour. A very funny beer.

Bag-in-a-box at Copenhage beermarathon 2004: Deep red with absolutely no head. Very nice aroma of cherries, with just a hint of the sourness. The taste is very well rounded and balanced. a good experience

JoeinDahlem (1366) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2007
Enjoyed at Het Warm Water in Brussels. Deep ruby color with a few bubbles, strong fruit aroma, sweet cherries are juicy and mildly tart but not sour, mouthfeel is mostly flat but not thin. An enjoyable drink.

thebeertourist (5069) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2007
On draught at Hotel Centrum, Beersel. Dark ruby red with a medium-sized pink head. Definite cherry aroma, even quite sweet. Strong semi-sweet cherry flavours, dry woody finish. Quite fizzy, medium body. Good kriekenlambik, but cherry steals the show.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2008
Weekend of spot. ferment. 07’. Pours a clear deep ruby. Aroma of blackcurrant, cherry and tomatos. Very fruity like. Sweeter body than most of the other kriekenlambiks going around, flavours of cherry juice and almonds. Simple sweetish finish. Despite the apparent simplicity of the beer, its still outrageously good.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 Jun 21, 2008: Draught from a box. Bit unclear nice red colour with a fizzy fast disappearing white head. Mild sour cherry aroma. The flavour has a mild sourness with cherries and and a mild sweetness. Nice soft drink lambiek. 7/3/7/3/7/14: 3.4 Sep. 18, 2009: Hand bottled. Tart fruity cherry aroma. Rather flat mouthfeel. Tart cherry flavour, not so sweet and not so overwelming but very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2009 2009-10-09, bag-in-the-box at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy ruby color. Light cherry aroma. Quite flat, with light carbonation, a bit astringent, and probably not fresh; light fruitness; short final. Something’s strange.

2008-05-29, bag-in-the-box at Plan B, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Hazy ruby color, no head. It has a moderate cherry aroma. The mouthfeel is unusually round, with a moderate tartness and fruitness, and some residual sugars. Less aggressive than expected.

2005-05-20, bag-in-the-box, 8-4-7-3-15=37
Very nice, balanced cherry aroma, with cherry kernels. Quite sweet, reasonable, not impressive, but well made.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy red body with no head. Aroma of cherry, wood, and some balsamic. Flavor of moderate sourness and sweet cherries with a dry wood finish.
