Hopverdju (537) - BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2016
Rood bier met roze schuim. Geur: fruitconfituur, pruimen en gedroogde vijgen. Smaak: zoet, frambozen. Drinkbaarder dan de extreem zoete kriek max.

Sigmund (6454) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2016
250 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 02.01.2015. ABV is 4.5%. I expected something bright red, but the colour is peachy to orange-brownish. Large off-white head. Strong sweetish aroma of ripe and over-ripe raspberries. Fruity flavour, sweet, but not as much as I feared. Raspberries and other undefined ripe fruits. Hardly any bitterness.

sjogro (2265) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
At Maakun’s. Bottle. Sweet but also dusty raspberry candy. "Thanks gramps....". Less sweet than the kriek. Very much like lemonade.

Maakun (3392) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to Sjogro. Clear red with light pink head. Raspberry syrup, cooked raspberries, cherry candy, pear drop candy, light artificial sweetener bitterness under the medium sweetness. Medium bodied. Not very good.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear deep red colour lasting pink head. I can smell it from about a foot away. Sweet jammy raspberry fruit aroma. Sweet as hell in the mouth. It’s not horrible, it’s not got any off flavours. It’s sweet but fine. What can I say? It’s drinkable.

Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 One of those extremely sweet ’fruit beers’ which became popular after the launch of Belle-Vue Extra years ago, and of which Kriek Max of the same brewery can be viewed as the epitome. This is a raspberry version sweetened with acesulfame potassium, otherwise known as E650, a chemical also used as a sweetener in protein shakes and pharmaceutical products - glad I have this information, but it does not elicit a lot of trust. Clear ruby red colour with cinnabar hue and almost no fizz, under a medium thick but breaking, off-pinkish head. Aroma is one-sidedly and sickly sweet with an artificial, lemonade-like sourish touch: grenadine, industrial raspberry ice cream, Fanta Strawberry ascorbic acid, faint hints of earth, plastic and soapy wheat. Taste starts very sugary, cloying, with an artificial lemonade ascorbic sourishness alongside; the sickly sweetness keeps dominating, adding a fake raspberry flavour, Fanta Raspberry again springs to mind; artificial carbonation, slick and thin mouthfeel, wheat somewhere underneath as a soapy, softly sourish base along with a certain, vague barley graininess, but all of this keeps being overpowered by sugar and artificial, chemical raspberry; the lemonade-like ascorbic acidity does dry the mouth a bit, but not in a good way, I get a strong feeling of ’zure beertjes’, with some graininess lingering around somewhere in the finish, but even there the ascorbic acidity and the sticky ’acesulfame potassium’ sweetness persist - and to make things worse, a chemical wryness, probably the inherent bitter aspect of this acesulfame potassium, shows up in the very end as well. This is liquid red candy in more than one sense, and I hate the artificial sweetness of candy with a passion. Absolutely disgusting, even in its style. Only suitable for die-hard candy lovers and people who hate the taste of actual beer. This kind of beverages are as far removed from ’craft beer’ as any mass-produced lager, or even further.
