A bold beer that will stand out in a crowd. Lively head, big aroma of cherries and malt. Nice interplay of fruit and malt, good balance of sour and sweet.

This was just superb, it is one of the beers that make you happy when in Belgium and also force you to promise to go back one day.

On tap at Brick Store. Pretty beer, deep ruby red with a nice foamy head. Aroma sweet, largely of cherries. Strong cherry flavor, pretty sweet, although not cloying. Slight bitterness on finish. Wish there was more sour flavors to balance out the sweetness. Not bad, but not my favorite kriek.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle) Pours a deep red with nice head. Quite bubbly. Nose of black cherries, some tart in there as well. Taste is syrupy, cherry, but not tart like the smell seemed to indicate. If it was this could be a much better beer. The lingering on the palette is that of artificial sweetener so bitter, but not like a hop profile.

Dark red colour, creamy red coloured head, staying for a bit. Aromas: krieken, cherries and sugar. tastes like cherries, fruity, not sour, but smooth, bitter and fresh. The sweetiness is dominating towards the finish. Thatís not what I expected alas.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very dark red, almost grape juice like. Red crown of head, decent lace saves this from just being average.
Smells of cherries, cherries, cherry juice, and canít really smell anything else. More of a sweet than sour scent.
Taste is similar with a bit of a dry bite. This isnít nearly as much of a sugar bomb as a Lindemanís kriek, but it is on the low end of that ball park. Good, a little bready aftertaste.
Mouth is a little syrupy which is kind of nice as I am used to these type of beers being very thin and bubbly.
Good stuff, especially considering a Lindemans is approximately the same price for a small bottle as this was for a 750ml. I curve a bit downward on the overall score as it became a little too sweet after a short time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Ruby pour with a pinkish wispy head. Sweet aroma of black cherry juice, almond paste, marzipan. Slick mouthfeel. Very cherryish flavor- quite sweet. Black cherry candy, tons of marzipan sweetness, bit itís natural and works wells as a one dimensional sweet digestive dessert.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a huge glass of this. Pours a very deep ruby red color with minimal pink foamy head. Aroma was dark cherries, brown sugar, and raisins. Flavor has a malty sweet base, with notes of spice and raisins. Sweet/tart cherries take over then with a boozy sweet finish.
