Intens red colour with pink mousse. aroma is like cherry candy with sweet and sour nose. Taste is more like limonade with fruit flavour. When served very cold on a hot summer day it could be OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
250 ml bottle. Deep red color, pinkish head. Slightly sour, candy aroma. Blackberry and cherry flavor with a touch of malts in the finish. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Not the most natural kriek Iíve had, but itís not cloyingly sweet. Better than some, though still a far cry from Cantillon.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (K CM, Kammpi)
Deep red, fizzy pink head. Dark dark cherry aroma. Very simple modern kriek taste with a bit of a beery backdrop, but only slight sourness - barely a hint. Perfumey cherry finish, some paperiness too. Oddly, I disagree with comments about the artificiality of the fruit - I feel like Iím drowning in real cherries. Itís the beer that needs to be called into question, in particular its lambic nature. Easy to criticise, but actually goes down pretty easily. Too sweet - that goes without saying, surely?
