Heerlijk fruitbier van 8% dus drink niet te snel. Een van de betere fruitbieren van het moment.

If you like sours and cherry alcohol, this is for you. Tasted more like a cherry sparkling wine than it did beer. Definitely a fruity drink, much more simliar to wine taste than beer taste. Not my taste, but for being a cherry sour this would probably be great for someone who liked that sort of thing. Expensive as hell though.

Gyümölcsös vörös sör a sör mestereitől. Hölgyeim, aki szeret sörözni, buli előtt tökéletes választás. Nagyon erős, gyorsan becsíphetsz tőle úgy, hogy közben tényleg nagyon fincsi. Megnyerő színe van, kissé mandulás, gyümölcsös mellékíze és nincs túl sok habja. Ezt mondjuk azért emelném ki, mert én speciel nem szeretem a sörhabot...

RD400F (177) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle to tulip glass, pours a dark transparent red with a small off white top. Aroma carries cherries, candy, grape, roses and other estery things. Noticeably artificial smelling however...there are also notes of cough syrup which doesn’t spell good things. Taste...hmm...black forest cake with a mixture of marachino and sour cherries. The malt backbone of the original beer does carry this quite well...lots of sweet/sour/savoury notes...and it’s surprisingly authentic tasting which is a good surprise. Palate...medium bodied, balanced quite well, co2 medium, finishes nice and dry but not overly so. Overall, pleasantly surprised, a good beer.

Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown with a beige head. Smells like maraschino cherries. Flavour is sweet candied cherry with a very tasty sour and tart backbone and light vanilla notes. Love this beer.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
33cl Bottle: BBD 10/2015. Poured into a Forbidden Fruit chalice on my patio on 15th May 2014. I didn’t even notice it was a Kriek until I had a sniff! Must wear my glasses when buy and selecting beers. Anyway, light salmon bubbles that sadly faded sat on top of a ruby red body. Actually the aroma almost hides the fact the beer is cherry based, well it does when it’s cold. The beer is a bit too sweet for me, I prefer the slightly sourer Kriek beers that Belgium is famous for. This reminded me of an alcoholic Bakewell Tart.

mgajdaczewa (448) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
w aromacie sporo wiśni, raczej na słodko, gdzieś w tle nuta ziemista niezbyt grająca z całością. Podobnie w smaku, przeważają wiśnie, jest wyraźna słodycz i lekka cierpkość, czuć pełnię, dobrze ukryty alkohol, ta nuta ziemista nie daje spokoju czyniąc piwo niezbyt zbalansowanym. Mogło być lepiej.

Dunkelrötliches Bier mit schöner pinker Schaumkrone. Geruch nach reifen Kirschen, etwas sauer, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.
