Bottle Pours unclear , pink/red . small white head. Smell is harsh, chemical , sweet, arteficial . Taste is sugar . Bit dry because of the use of so much sugar, even . Candy-like fruityness . Pretty 1-dimensionnal .... Meh

UXO (340) - CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a hazy pinkish red with one finger of pink head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. Nose is candy cherry, pale malt, faint yeast. Taste is sugary/saccharine cherry, moderate tartness. Light body, moderate sustained carbonation, with an off-dry finish. Needless to say, given my experience with Lefebvre beers so far, I opened this with something less than enthusiasm. Yeah… Fake cough drop cherries and another thrilling ingredients list including the now-familiar “flavours”, as well as acesulfame potassium. Mmm… because if there’s anything better in a beer than unspecified “flavours”, it’s artificial sweeteners. Bleah. Save your money.

Dark pink hued Amber with a pinkish head, aroma of cherry bubble gum. Flavour is sweet and tastes like that first sugary bite of fresh bubble gum, not the cheap stale kind with the comic or baseball card. Unfortunately this is not www.rategum.com.

Bottle. Clear pink with a fizzy whit pink head. Tastes a lit like cherries, smalls the same. More of a soda, but not overly artificial.

Ik drink graag kriekenbier maar dit was toch niet mijn ding. Dan zijn er een pak betere op de markt

runner75 (2) - ITALY - JUL 18, 2014 does not count
It seems good, has a good flavour, and is pretty sweet ...but in my humble opinion the kriek taste is "syntetic" and left a strange taste on the thongue. Many people like it but is not my kind of beer.

reebtogi (4303) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
330ml bottle pours a ruby red color with a large pink head that settles quickly leaving some spotted lacing. Aroma is dominated by cherries. Taste is malty and fruity sweet with a cherry tartness. Has some characteristics of beer with the head and carbonation, but overall seems more like juice than beer.

trotwood (33) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Advertized as lambic, turned out to be a pure play cherry juice with a hint of alcohol. Reddish, very sweet, medium carbonation.

Gyümölcsös sörrajongó lévén kipróbáltam egy belga cseresznyéset is. Hát eléggé üdítőjellegű ez a darab. Finomabb, mint egy ízesített magyar nagyüzemi sör, de ezzel még nem bókoltam neki. Kategórián belül szerintem kissé gyengén teljesít, ha több lehetőség közül kell választanom, nem ez a befutó.

horrendous beer. Non sembra birra, ho fatto fatica a finire mezzo bicchiere. Il resto credo finirŕ nel lavandino.
