Bottle enjoyed somewhere in the middle of Belgium... Very sweet, very cherry, not sour at all (too bad) - but refreshing all around!

Alengrin (1254) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
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).

Un arôme très fruitée qui se penche sur les fruit des bois Pas trop sucrée et désaltérante Une belle couleurs ruby

Ziet er goed uit, maar de smaak is spijtig genoeg niet navenant. Ik vond het niet zo lekker

vipinvelp (2130) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Dark ruby red with red lacing foam head. Aroma is sour cherry. Taste is sour cherry initial, turning little sweet after time. A taste to get used to, but quite nice actually. Sourish aftertaste. (Kemmel 201407)

Drunk from 33cl bottle. Overly artificially sweet drink. Might be good for cooking but not drinking! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Appears deep red with a thin pink, shortly lasting head in a pretty Kriek glass. The aroma is... cherry and candy. Tastes very sweet and intense. Not as sticky as you would imagine. Enjoyable, but not as a "real" beer.

Bottle bought in Belgium. Served cold with ice cubes. Deep red with pink big head with large bubbles. Very sweet cherry aroma and taste. If you want something sweet and refreshing, it works very well.

Piero1987 (661) - Iglesias, ITALY - MAY 8, 2014
Powerful cherry aroma but beer is too sweet and light bodied. Nice red color and creamy head.

tom10101 (2716) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Deep red with a small fully lasting pink head and little lacing. Aroma i of sweet cherry candies, light tartness and light herbal notes. Taste is also of sweet cherry candies and light tartness. Medium body. Lively carbonation. No funk at all here, but at least it’s a tasty cherry juice. Similar to St. Louis Premier Kriek, so it could be good for granite.

JulienHuxley (3015) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
On tap at some café. Bright red pour with pink head. Aroma is equally bright cherry aroma, very sweet ans candied smelling. Taste is super sweet, literally like cherry soda, no beery flavors at all. Palate is sweet but light bodied. Nice summer drink, but not béer.
