UPDATED: JUL 30, 2005 (Bottled, 3.5% ABV) Clear, very pretty, blood-red color with small, pink sparkling-wine head. Very strong and reasonably pure, sweet cherry aroma. Sweet and sugary cherry flavor. Medium-bodied, quite sugary but bearable palate with balanced carbonation. A sweet, but quite pleasant dessert kriek.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Aromatically pours a deep crimson, with a lasting thin head. Smells like cherries, surprise surprise. Wonderfully thick palate, nice flavor. Aftertaste is sweet, quite unexpected. Overall, a wonderful selection from Lindemans.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 I started drinking beer twenty years ago. And now I feed sad I waited this long to try a Lambic. For the longest time I couldn't stand the thought of fruits being present in my beer. But after having tried this elixir, my mind is free, and the scales on my eyes have fallen off. What an awesome beer. It does not taste at all like a wine cooler, mixed drink, or a malternative, as I was afraid it would. Instead this has a naturally refreshing, mature character that is typical of the best beers I have ever tasted. Very different than other beers in many respects, but very similar to them in terms of it's purpose of existence. Pours a shockingly cloudy, dark cherry red with pink effervescent foam that dissipates rapidly. The smell is all cherry along with fresh tilled earth and cut grass. Very sour and crisp with a creamy sweetness that is surprisingly non cloying. Not perceptibly hopped, so no bitterness whatsoever. Clean uncomplicated mouthfeel and awesome drinkability. Bubbly and effervescent like a champagne, but without the puckering dryness. I’ll be back for more Lambics, and other beers that I was apprehensive about.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Dark ruby red color, bright sweet cherry aroma remeniscent to cough syrup and the like. The flavor is sweet and fruity with some artificial cherry flavor. A touch of muskiness in the finish and not much complexity. Interesting kriek, not much of a beer anymore.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2004
A clear red beer with a huge beutiful pink head. The aroma is totally dominated by cherries. The flavor is also dominated by cherries, but on a woody background and hints of sourness. It is only hints of the wild fermentation - and that is a little sad. Drink it cold as an apperitif - but don't expect a real lambic from this beer.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Only my second lambic. Great dark red color. Lots of carbonation and a little white head. Strong cherry candy flavor. Good for a change of pace.

jerohen (2031) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 Clear red coloured, pink head. Very strong cherry nose. Very sweet flavour, but refreshing instead of cloying. I know it’s overly sweet, but i like it nonetheless.

skortila (4620) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 29, 2004
The Souvenirs version with Caesar. Very artificial smell of cherry candy. Red coloured with a short and lasting pink head. Taste is like the aroma; artificial sweet cherry.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 29, 2004
I drank the Souvenirs Kriek, 3.5 %. Clear red color, short pink head. Aroma of artifical cherry sweets. Taste is also immensely sweet of cherry candy, no sourness at all.

becksgenius (110) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Aroma reminds me of halls or robitussin, cherry flavor of course. very crisp and refreshing with a certain sweetness to it. it has a hint of tart on the back end. its questionable to call this stuff a beer, but its pretty good.
