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.

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 (6451) - 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 (6232) - 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.

sjogro (1908) - 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 (2706) - 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.

25cl Flasche. Dunkelrote Farbe, rosaner Schaum. Starkes süsses Kirsch Aroma. Geschmack auch sehr fruchtig, aber für ein Kriek zu süss.

Wischylini (230) - 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.
