1/IV/16 - 25cl bottle from the supermarket @ home - BB: 16/VI/16 (2016-299)
Clear bright red beer, big fizzy irregular light pink head, unstable, dissipates quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of cherry candy, syrupy, little funky, lemony. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: cherry candy, very sweet and sugary, pretty sourish touch, lemon juice, citric acidity. Aftertaste: more artificial cherry syrup, pretty citric, sourish, bit sugary. Not as bad as I had feared, still not much to do with original kriek thought.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a lovely and tasty ale at only 3,5%. Full of flavor and very balanced.
Dark red color with a nice pink head. Rich and nice aroma. Medium body and a fine smooth carbonation. A nice mellow sweetness. A bit oily texture. Rich and yet mellow and balanced cherry flavor. Also marzipan and almonds.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 15.01.15. ABV is 3.5%. Dark red colour, moderate to low pink head. Lovely aroma of sweet and sour cherries, cherry kernels, almonds / almond essence / marzipan. Sweet flavour with loads of sweet and sour cherries, also hints of almonds. Too sweet, but still a guilty pleasure to drink.

Bottle shared thanks to Sjogro. Deep red with pink head. Sweet cherry soda and candy, like those hard cherry drop candies mostly. Really not much else there, maybe some marzipan. Taste is sweet with a very light tart touch. Medium bodied. Very sweet but no bad notes or something.
