3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 1997 vintage: Cloudy dark red coloured. Nice reddish head, that dies quickly. Wellbalanced fruitsweetness med a faint touch of sourness in the nose. Reminds me a bit of marzipan. The flavour is a nice cocktail of sour and sweet. The cherry flavours are obvious but the sweetness is beautifully balanced by the sourness. Has a somewhat watery aftertaste, but still a delicious sourness is present. This is a very nice beer, that I hopefully will sample with pleasure in a somewhat fresher edition.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s very beautiful, deep red with a creamy, slightly reddish head. The aroma has notes of cherries and sourness. The flavour is moderately sweet and has a nice berry-acidity and notes of lots of cherries and a little wood. It’s harmonic and nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 From tap. Sweet aroma with lots of cherry juice. The taste is a fine mix of sweet and sour. It seems a bit articifial, because cherry juice is used, and not whole cherries.
A pleasant beer, but certainly not a classic, as it was in the 70's and 80's. In the mid 80's a pub in Breda one week per year served Liefmans kriek straight from the wooden cask.
Re-rate: bottle. No head. Strong cherry aroma with some oak. Sweet and sour flavor with cherry juice and a bit of an alcohol burn. Full bodied and syrupy. Lovely beer.
