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.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
At Maakun’s. Bottle. Dark ruby. Sweet cherry candy, boiled cherries, sugar, marzipan. Taste is very sweet. Fizzy carbo. For this kind of sweetened kriek it’s very decent. No artificial sugarflavor for a change.

Maakun (2343) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to Sjogro. Deep red with pink head. Sweet cherry soda and candy, like those hard cherry drop candies mostly. Really not much else there, maybe some marzipan. Taste is sweet with a very light tart touch. Medium bodied. Very sweet but no bad notes or something.

DrNosha (1020) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2015
25cl Flasche. Dunkelrote Farbe, rosaner Schaum. Starkes süsses Kirsch Aroma. Geschmack auch sehr fruchtig, aber für ein Kriek zu süss.

Wischylini (226) - Grimstad, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2015
Pours dark red, with no head. The aroma is very simple, and is dominated by cherry cola and almonds. The taste is so overly sweet that it feels like drinking a soda, and there’s neither bitterness nor any sour taste present. The mouthfeel is average, and the carbonation is medium. Resembles and alcopop more than a kriek, extremely one-dimensional.

Marduk (4780) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2015
250ml bottle. Clear deep ruby red color. Medium size, pink head, stays. Sweet, cherries in aroma. Cherries, sweet in taste. Cherries!

MohaBeer (135) - Lima, PERU - SEP 2, 2015
Rojo rubí intenso con transparencia, espuma corta sin adherencia. Esteres a cereza altos, notas medicinales, ligero brettanomyce (establo) propio del estilo, lúpulo nulo. En boca acidez de cereza alta, malta dulce y fresca, lúpulo bajo. Final cítrico con notas medicinales prolongado, acidez propia del estilo. Cuerpo bajo, carbonatación baja. Buena cerveza lambic.

0,25L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours red with pink head. The head stays for some moments. Aroma is very sweet, cherries. Flavor is sweet and sour, cherries. Finish is dry-tart. Overall: very simple, but I don’t mind it.
