2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Deep cherry red clear body, large pink-hued head. Very good looking. Nose is artificial sweet cherry tones, almond essence, cherry pits and hints of white candi sugar. Taste is sweet cherries and cherry pits, lemons, hints of straw and grains far in the back. Full body, medium carbonation. Slightly less sweet and vaguely more complex than the "Jacobins Max" series from Bockor (Iím guessing they use a slightly higher lambic content) but still nowhere near what I consider to be a real kriek.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from ALBO. BBF 27/07/2013 (so expired, doesnít mater anything for beers with so much chemical, sweeteners etc.). Very, very dark ruby, almost no pinkish head. Smells like cherry (not kriek) candy, syrup, cotton candy, some sugar. Tastes of cherry grenadine, some syrup, sweeteners are only very faint luckily in the back, touch iron, cotton candy, sugar, very sweet, Cherry coke. Light, touch less carb. Reminds me a bit of Lindemans Kriek but not as good as that one, not bad for what is. Label clearly states lambic, lambic my ass. This is as much lambic or kriek as I am a pigeon.

Bottle 6 months over date. Red cherry amber colour with a small head. Cherries, sugar, candy and the very slightest hint of dank on swirl. Tastes..sweet cherries, very sweet and sugary but a sour fruit juice flavour saves it as it gets a bit warmer.

23/II/13 - 25cl bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke (Denderleeuw) - BB: 27/VII/13 (2013-182)
Clear ruby red beer, big aery off-white head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, sugary, cherry candy ("poepkes"), bit of chloride. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very sweet, sugary, cherry candy, little lemony sour, bitter touch. Aftertaste: sugary, cherry candy, little bitter, some chloride, bit dry. Despite the enormous sweetness, itís not cloying. Thatís a good thing I guess.
