This was quite enjoyable. Pours a dark pink, with a puffy pink ish head. Very tart and slightly sour, with fruity cherry flavors, and a very dry yet somewhat chalky and metallic finish. Still very good and easy to drink, just not a very good finish or aftertaste.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: This beer is a bright maroon color with a thin white head. Aroma of black cherries. Mouthfeel like sparkling wine, with a strong tart cherry flavor throughout. The finish is dry and fruity. This is very drinkable after you recover from the initial blast of cherry.

cwhalen (14) - Champaign, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Very Nice. Nice full colored with a real cherry aroma. What I want most in a flavored beer is that it tastes like real XXX (whatever the flavor is) - and this did it. Well worth the price. Would be great for an after dinner drink. This one is only slightly below the currant in terms of appeal. Well worth a try

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Very red pour, the head and lacing resemble champagne that has been in the glass for a few minutes, the carbonation is much less than champagne. Aroma of fresh raspberries, taste much the same. Enjoyable, but too sweet.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Cherry Dimetapp with an undercurrent of must and dust. Actually smells much more lambic-y than the Framboise or the Peche, but it's still just as sweet as they are. Not bad, really, but the New Glarus Belgian Red is more sour than this!

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Dark red, cranberry apperance. Sweet candy cherry/cider aroma. Sour cherry taste, and a slight sweet finish. Very good. Only the third beer I have found that my pre-wife likes.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Well, having this after the Lou Pepe Kriek, I realize this is a pretender in the lambic world. Very sweet but still bursting with cherry goodness. Aroma is cherrylicious. A nice drink.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Pours cherry red. Aroma is sweet cherry and a little malt. Flavor starts sweet, major cherry flavor. The finish is tart and dry. Very little hop flavor. Somewhat one demensional as the cherry is too dominant. It is good, though.

teghem (2) - brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2003 does not count
Red color, very nice mix of sweet and sour. Surprisingly strong kriek taste, compare to other lambics. I had this one in t' Brugs Beertje.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2005 Boom! This is amazing! Amazing pink frothy head, with a rich cherry colour. Superb sherbetty flavour, with a perfect balance of sweetness and restrained cherry flavour. Black cherry and yoghurt notes - the best kriek thus far.
