jfb (5574) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 25, 2016
(bottle) murky brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy marzipan and liquorice, with a touch of treebark, toffee and sticky fudge. flavour is cloyingly sweet, with more toffee and treebark, some gletschereis, raspberries, earth and a light roasted-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation. vile stuff.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark opaque red with minimal head. Aroma is of cherry candies and yeast. Taste is sweet like jam. Palate is medium with an oily mouth feel. Overall it an unique beer, but a little sweet for my taste.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2015
Top-fermented strong sweet ’kriek’, a style which has become quite popular in recent years, especially in Wallonia and France. Thick, creamy, frothy, stable and sticky head, very pale greyish white, cloudy wine red colour with brownish hue. Aroma of cherry candy and red fruit jam, ’cuberdons’ (a kind of raspberry-flavoured sugar candy typical for Ghent), industrial honey, crème de cassis, brown sugar and a touch of caramelly malts. Very sweet, cloying, sugary taste, grenadine and red fruit jam, syrupy, very light fruit sourishness, caramelly malts underlying, very soft and faraway echo of bitterishness in the finish but otherwise remaining cloyingly sweet, with a noticeable alcohol warmth. One-sidedly sweet and syrupy, as all the beers in this particular (sub)style. Not made for my palate and if you are into this style for whatever reason, I would recommend Kasteel Rouge over this.

Hamirubi (569) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2015
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). What a wonderful kriek, even enjoyable for people who dislike fruit beers. Based on real sour cherries, instead of the sweet cherries, and with extra red fruit syrup. Very sweet and somehow unnatural, but also very nice.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Sampled @ ZBF 2015. Very dark amber, little tanned head. Nose is very sweet & artificial, strawberry jam & syrup, lots of artificial sugar. Taste is same strawberry jam & sugar, artificial,… Bit thin. Okay if you like very sweet syrup beers. Also it tastes like strawberry & not kriek to me. I expected better. (Thx! for sharing people!)

From tap. Pours hazy dark brown to almost black, off white head. Aroma is fruity and toasted malty. Fruity, sweet and roasted malty. Caramelish and cherry. Toasted finish.

kermis (11265) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Draft at BBF ’15. Pours cloudy reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet artificial red fruit. Flavor is heavy sweet. Light bodied with light carbonation. Yet another terrible sweet kriek.

MrHangover (4025) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
Sample @ BBF 15. Pours a clear deep purple beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of red fruits, lemonade, touch of Belgian yeast. Flavor is very sweet like fruit lemonade and has a thick, syrupy mouthfeel. Very sweet, fruity and sugary. Seems like a bit artificial sweetener to me.
