vipinvelp (2046) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Pale redish with red lacing foam head. Aroma and taste are what I ordered a cherry beer. There are times when these taste good. (Hulst 201405)

My bottle had a different label and is labeled as a 3,5% beer, not the 5 here. But according to the other ratings it is very similar. Very red and a almond biscotti aroma and flavor. Some sourness, but more sweetness. Almost, but not quite, too sweet. I do wonder if this is made with actual krieks or with syrup/juice. Came from a gift package of Halve Maan beers.

Not too sweet which is nice, looks murky with a small head. Smells like almond cookies. Little carbonation.

Leene (9) - BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2012 does not count
Small head, dissapears quite quickly. Cloudy red colour. Looks a bit like cherry juice. Smells like cherrysweets. Taste is sweet, with a little pinch of soureness. Tastes quite natural, compared to e.g. a more chemical Floris kriek, that I tasted next to this one. Label says that it contains only 3.5% ABV. A good kriek if you like the real sweet krieks like lindemans. Stay away from this if you’re looking for a sour "oude kriek"

Colour is quite much what i like. Taste is very sour and artificial. I don’t think they used real cherries. Chemical was my only not, so it bothered me obviously.

Benzai (7211) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
The dark red color is the only thing a like about this beer. It’s way too sour but the worst thing is that it tastes chemical. Like they didn’t use real cherries.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a cloudy dark red, almost blood-like. Small pink head that sticks around for the, almost, entire drink. Smells like fresh cherry juice. A bit of a sour note to the nose. But mostly sweet cherries. Sweet cherry juice again. Very nice fresh fruit flavor. The slight sourness is there as well, but pretty much balanced out. No alcohol taste, which you would expect from this low an ABV. Like a carbonated cherry juice. Slight sweetness, and sourness left behind. But mostly sweet fruit is left over after each swallow. Not bad, but would get pretty old after a bit. A good breakfast beer with waffles.

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2010
Label claims 3.5% ABV. Different lable from picture above Mixed pink-whitish head like vanilla & strawberry softice. Well-carbonated veiled deep-red beer. Childrens’ cherrysweets. Artificial, citric acid smell. More childrens’ sweets in the flavour, with a particularily artificial citric acid/ cherry flavouring. Very spritzy, certain slickness backthroat. I believe "Huyge" anytime. Probably even not original.
