4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pinkish airy head but dissipates pretty quickly - pretty while it lasts though. Pours reddish-magenta-amber. Nose is baking spices, candied ginger. Palate is light, tart, and cherries. Crisp, clean, tart finish. The nose was much sweeter than the actual palate on this one, I thought I would hate it but its actually refreshing, complex and interesting.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from bierlinie in Berlin. Pours deep Red. Smells of Cherry, Great Cherry Taste with a Hint of Red grape. Heavy carbonation, but doesn’t interfere with the taste at all. Not too sweet, not too sour. Only the aftertaste is not perfect, a bit to rash in the throat. Such a great beer.

Quite lovely fresh cherries, cherry stones, dried fruits, bit too one dimensional sour with light sweetness. Decent

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Marjamehun värinen, vaaleanpunainen vaahto. Tuoksussa kirsikkaa ja marjoja. Maku marjaisa, mutta ei liian makea. Yllättävän hyvä. Jatkoa: Pidemmän päälle turhan makea ja kirsikkainen jälkimaku.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rebranded shmancy 33cl bottle, BL4 sampler - this used to be available at my grandmother’s and the corner pub in beautifully handwrapped paperfoil 37,5cl bottles - thanks Palm Craft Breweries for putting your goldrimmed Trump stamp on it. - Bref: manages to uphold the shine of natural cherry among the enhanced and finetuned artificial Haribo aromas, with a strong current of Oud Bruin running underneath. - Zestiness of lemonade meets juicy cherry, brown balsamics adding some lure. - Bitter almond adds a touch of class to the obvious kitsch. A hard sell in any foreign country obsessed with natural flavours, but a very drinkable easy beer creation beyond Radler and Oude Kriek alike.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle at home in Richmond, as ’Liefmans Craft Blenders Kriek Brut’, ’blended in 2015’, 6%. Picked up in M&S for about £1.30. Very dark purple brown, clear ruby when held to light, pretty still, small pink head. Aroma is simple cherry juice and syrup, cherry ice pop, really reminds me of FAB lollies, some liquorice. Mostly sugary cherry. Body is pretty frothy, soft carbonation, airy, tooth-coating sugars. Taste is sweet cherry and metallics, cherry cola, cherryade, cherry Haribo etc etc. A bit of fun, but I really struggled to finish the bottle because of the sweetness. Argh I need to go to the dentist.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A deep cherry colour with a big dense cream head; sour cherry aroma with a touch of plum; intense, sharp and sour cherry taste at first, but mellowing somewhat, and developing some stewed plum sweetness later. Exactly what a sour fruit beer should taste like.

Pours a dark red/brown color with a creamy beige head. Nose of dark fruit, cherry, raspberry, tartness. Sweet taste, not overly sweet thought. You get a bit of tartness near the end. Very well balanced. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown with a reddish touch and a huge beige head. Heavy aroma of cherries along with a little citrus/lime, marzipan and some wooden elements. Very sweet cherry flavour at first with a medium tart finish. Also traces of metal at the end. Very nice, but not the best kriek I’ve had.
