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.

elosop (318) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2016
Mörkröd med hyggligt rosa skum som dock la sig ganska snabbt. Doftar friskt av körsbär. Smaken syrlig och lagom sur. Eftersmaken tämligen ihållande för den låga alkoholhalten.

imdownthepub (13396) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Bottled, 250ml from Cafe Concordia, Jabbeke, West Flanders, Belgium. Red brown with pink head. Sweet, candied cherryade flavours from the off, fleshy with little of the beer element showing through. Reasonable depth, never off really so a fair mark.

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.

Cunningham (7057) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2016
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.
[Bottle from Ølgaarden/Gulating in Fredrikstad, Norway]

Sigmund (6746) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
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.
