Non-filtered apple juice appearance, no head. Sweet concentrated cherry aroma with oaky notes. Good balance of acidity/sweetness. The woodiness gets bigger as the beer warms.

Pours a deep, dull ruby color brightened by a touch of orange. The head is tan and persistent and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is brilliant. Sweet and sour cherries, mold, oak and tannin. The flavors are equally enjoyable. Crisp, tart cherries are softened by oak. The finish has a nice yeastiness with almost saison spiciness. Another great sour beer from Liefmans.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sour lambic taste with the traditional barnyard nastiness (described as diaper or barnyard or worse) hidden under sour cherry. Not much malt or wheat, not much hop, but marvelously thirst quenching as an aperitif or by itself.

the only drinkable kriek. It's expensive for marginal people: don't drink it too much.

Lovely! Only sour note is, well, its a little bit too sour! This is the same price as alco-pops, yet tastes a thousand times better.

750 ml. Nice bottle, no etiquette, just wrapped in paper. Litlle treble colour. Aroma: sour, fruity. Very sour flavour, better than al those sweet kriek-beers.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pink on red with a cherry nose with slight traces of barnyard. Two dimentional with overly sweet cherries, a little oak, and hardly enough tartness to cut through it all. Not too impressed, but will rate agian....on some one elses buck.
