Sten (617) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2006
A deep red beer with a small pink head. Very sweet and artificial cherry aroma. Thye flavour is too sweet for me. A very sticky, syrupy beer. This is not the kind of beer that I like. (Bottle 25cl 3.2 alcohol % in my version)

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2006
330 ml bottle. Dark reddish colour. White reddish head that clings to the glass. Parfumey pungent cherry aroma. Syrup. Sweet flavours with a little acidic aftertaste. Not too bad, but very industrial. And sweet, but the acidity balances the sweetness to some extent.

SHIG (3541) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pored a Dark red burgandy with a soft red fluff head. Sweet full cherry aroma. Sour cherry flavor with lots of tingle.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle, 3.2%. Clear dark red colour, big, stable pink head. Very sweet cherry aroma. Very sweet cherry flavour, a little acidic. Clearly balanced towards sweetness.

RichardGretton (4221) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Dulled reddish beer with a pink head. The aroma is dulled sweetish cherry, and the flavour is sweet cherry’s. Overall a nice refreshing beer when served cool.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled at Beerpassion Weekend 2006, Antwerp. Just another way too sweet kriek, cloying and artificial.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled, beerpassion 2006. Very sweet stuff. Typical sweet kriek, though quite (artificial) fruity for its kind.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2006
Dark red colored, little pink head. Strong cherry, sweetness and bubblegum in aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Also strong cherries in flavor, aftertaste has mildly sour bubblegum flavor. Aftertaste lasts.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2006
Clear red to dark pink coloured with some very light carbonation and an average pink head. Sweet and light sour cherry aroma, little hints of the stone/wood. Full, light creamy body. Finish is enjoyable sour, somewhat peppery with a dry ending. Not to sweet this one, nicely balanced, not complex

johndoughty (3856) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2006
The strength on the bottle is given as 3.2 per cent.My first lambic fruit and i didn’t know if I was drinking a beer or a soft drink.Nice red appearance with loads of cherries floating arround. A pleasant if confusing drinkinfg experience.Is it really a beer?
