3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pinkish ruby colour with a light pink head, a bit of lacing. Smells and tastes like black cherry candy or soda - quite sweet and a bit fake. An appealing flavour, but then I could just drink cherry soda.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Translucent red with negligible head size. Candied cherry aroma. Terrible lambic. Absolutely no hops or alcohol present, far too sweet, and even contains added fructose and "sweetening". This genuinely tastes like cherry soda. It doesn’t necessarily taste bad, but when I open a beer, I want a beer.

Şişe,istanbul.. Kırmızı renk kırmızı-beyaz köpük.. Koku vişne! Tadım gazlıllık ve vişne.. Çok tatlı, rahatlatıcı ama dengeli değil.. Katkı maddeleri ise büyük eksi puan..

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
A clear red beer with a pink head, smells very sweet, cherries obviously. Taste is also very sweet, artificial even which is also obvious because a sweetener is added to the beer ... meh ... A slight hint of the lambic is still there but doesn?t safe the beer from being more of a cherry soft drink.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
A further degeneration of their Jacobins Kriek, inspired by Belle-Vue Kriek Extra, which in itself was a light and even more sweet ’summer’ version of their Belle-Vue Kriek. Deep red colour, pinkish head. Very sweet taste of cherry jam, sugary and artificial, cloying and light with only slight tartness, lambic character - still faintly noticeable in the regular Jacobins Kriek - has all but disappeared here. This style is often patronizingly referred to as ladies’ beer in Belgium, I would not go as far as that, but in any case this will only please people trying to avoid the taste of actual beer (or lambic).
