Aroma is a bit too much like a cherry soda compared to some other cherry lambics. Flavor is nice also, but again very much more like a cherry soda than a well developed lambic. This is not a bad brew, just doesn't have the depth of say a Belle Vue Kriek.

A nice Kriek that is stronger in cherry aroma than some others. Very nice mix of sweet, sour and brettanomyces taste combined with the ripe cherry. Not a session beer but a refreshing beer on a hot summer afternoon when you want something different.

Red color, pink head. Strong sweetened cherry juice aroma. You can smell it metres from the glass. Lots of cherry juice in the very sweet flavor. Some lemon sourness to compensate. It's impossible to taste the lambic that is used. Still, the beer tastes OK, like cherry lemonade can taste well on a hot day.

The Marmite of beers - you'll either love it or spit it out in disgust. Worth a try, definately - although I think if I were to drink more than one bottle, I would have serious acid indigestion from the strong cherry flavour. Not to be confused with silly teenager's alcopops however, this is a real beer, not just alcoholic cherryade. Certainly interesting and pretty reasonable for those "I fancy something different" moments.

Very refreshing brew. A little syrupy to make it useful on a hot summer day though. Interesting taste (very sweet from start to finish). Cherries are almost overpowering sometimes. The only complaint I have about this beer is that it seemed to have a soapy nose. I'll just have to try it again to make sure it wasn't my glass!

Ruby colored and lightly carbonated, with a heavy aroma of cherries. Slightly sour and spritzy on the tongue, with a certain maltiness but the black cherry is all over the place. Light, sweet/sour finish. For me, an unusual brew and I didn't think I would like it, but actually it is pretty good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is of fresh sour cherries,like in a pie. Little sweet with skin tannins. Pure fruit taste. Red cloudy strawberry-rhubarb color w/pink foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with lively carb. Taste is very tart but sweet up front - big cherry taste. Only a slight bitterness in the finish with a tannin cherry after. Crisp & quite refreshing.

Nice dark reddish color,medium sized head,and the aroma was chery,cherry,and more cherry.Nicely carbonated.The flavor was very good,cheryy beginning and then it hits you that tart,sourness.Makes you want to pucker up in just a few sips.I've found that i can enjoy only one of these brews in an evening,theres just way to much tartness,but it definately is a great brew.
