Pours a clear dark red-brown with a quickly disappearing red-tinted head. Aroma of sweet and tart cherries. Flavor of cherries (obviously) and malts, very sugary.

McWorta (660) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 11, 2014
Dark red, with a light frothy bit pinkish head. Noses of dark red fruits, light zesty cherry and citrates aromas. Light carbonated texture, sweet with some fruity sourness. Medium bodied. Fruity finish, alcohol aromatic.

POurs deep brown with off pink colored head. Nose is like any other Kriek style - very sour cherry. Pleasant. On the palate though as a semi-overcarbonated, syrupy sour cherry flavor that isn’t up to par with others of the same style I’ve had before. Finish is a little sticky sweet and cola like.

33CL bottle at home, done from memory, great aroma of cherry’s almost artificial, reddish beer, taste was decent in cherries, not bad.

Stubby bottle pours a clear ruby body with a small and fleeting pink head. Aroma is sweet and tart cherries. Taste follows suit with more sweet and tart cherries. Just a hint of malt and hops underneath but no hint of the 8% abv. This one is all about the cherries, not much else.

a little let down since i wasis was told this was a real lambic but ratebeer says it is just a fruit beer. Well the color is a deep red and the aroma is tart fruit. the taste starts very sweet than breaks into a bitter deep cherry. like cough drops or cherry soda. A good replacement for champaign.

MattH (653) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Cask tap at Lucky Baldwin’s in Pasadena. Strong appealing aroma of dark cherry. Taste of cherry and a little alcohol warmth. Very easy drinking. You could drink a lot of this before you know it.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2009
Dégusté avec Pyrozoid a l’autre oeil. Couleur rouge/cuivré avec des reflets rubis, petit collet blanc mat. Aromes de cerises de cocktail, licorice, fraises, sucre de candi, alcool et une petite touche de menthe. Prédominance sur le sucré, tres bonne rondeur tout de meme, bonne sensation d’alcool avec une finition un peu huileuse. Gout tres sucré et acide des cerises et canneberges. Une note subtile d’alcool reviens.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 Pours a deep, ruby color with a reddish head. Excellent rich, cherry aroma that you will want to savor several times. Slightly bittersweet, cherry flavor with a nice, long finish. Every mouthful is a delight - black cherries in an abundance of flavor.

Dark, almost blood, red. Hints of red in the head. VERY heavy on the cherry. I liked it at first, but as it got close to the end I thought I was drinking cherry Nyquil. I wish they had focused more on the sour quality of cherries rather than their sweetness.
