Botte 0,5l at 3,5%. Deep red colour. A quite shortlived pink head. A bubbling first impression then there is raspberry again and again. Tried it together with cloudberry with sugar and cream - and it was defenitely a nice combination as a dessert.

I don’t know anything about fruit lambics, but Lindemans Kriek is a nice start to the style. It smelled of cherries, of course. Specifically, it reminded me of those cherry Twizzlers Bites. The color was magenta-red, with a light pink ring of head around the tulip glass. The flavor was a sort of musty tart cherry, but still very delicious. This was a good and unique beer.

Very carbonated. No head or lacing left in glass. Sweet cherry and raspberry taste with very sour aftertaste. I usually do not drink lambic. This one was good

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2006
250ml bottle (Alc.3.5%) from Alko in Finland. Hazy reddish body and head. Lambic aroma. Flavour is a mixture of cherry sweetness and sourness. Lively carbonated. Not my kind of beer - taste more like some sweet mineral water.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 21, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy red/fuchsia in colour with a pink frothy head that leave lost of lacing behind. Aroma is pretty much all cherry. Sweet Cherry flavours a little tart, with a creamy mouthfeel but a dry finish.

Aroma of dark cherries with a hint of raspberry. Beautiful cherry red color. The head does not last. Starts sour, moves through a sweetness, on to a cherry tartness, finishing somewhat yeasty. Cherry persists.

Bottle: Nearly artificially red coloured, lacing pink foam; strong sweet, almondy, fruity nose with a very sharp, sour touch; sweet flavour, light bodied, a bit sticky; sweet finish with some acidity and a faint tart aftertaste. Not unpleasant on hot summer days.....................
