3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The first kriek after a long time. Starting sceptical getting a really nice, very cherryish beer which is a bit too sweet. Missing some more beer-like and bitter aromas but this one could be a perfect dessert finisher for a beer evening.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep ruby colour with rosé coloured creamy steady head and medium body. Nose of cherries. Taste of cherry stones, grass, sour morellos and juice. Easy and nice to drink, really quaffable, but it just lacks the typical Lambic-character.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Consumed at Breakfast time in a hotel in Brussels... It pours clear red with a thick light pink head. The nose is sweet cherry, artificial notes, sugar and Cherry Tunes. The taste is sweet cherry...... faint tanginess, Cherry Drops, cherryade, sugar and light metallic notes. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. A one-dimensional sweet cherry beer, but definitely not the worst out there!

i did NOT know this was jacobins? always thought this was mort subite or something? aah, well..
i needed 1 more tick... so yeah.. no 665 .. a kriek max ( the onley thing available at that bar i havnt had yet )
as expected, it pours pink, pink foam. scent is very cherry-ish. taste as well. its like you’ve made juice out of a cherrie. so yeah, this namle? its not lying ! i expected this to be sweet, like lindemans, but i dint even get sugary things. no lambic neither. just, and onley , cherries. it was hard to drink this and i couldn’t finish it neither.
you get sick of this after one sip,
no beertaste, nothing, CHERRIES TILL YOU DROP
well, at least, now comes the whale.. THE ultimate beer for me...

Bright red pour with a pink head. Sweet cherry candies on the nose. Very sweet and sugary, a hint of cough syrup, and Ludens cough drops. Tastes like cherry Lifesavers with a hint of sourness. Candy sweetness, mild cough syrup, and tons of sugar.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle. Deep cherry red, reddish, foamy head, cherries dominate the taste and smell, sweetness and a touch of sourness/bitterness. Not bad, not especially great. My wife loved it, me less so.
