hackobock (2167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
June 9, 2015. Bottle at home, best before june 18, 2015.
Deep red with a large frothy pinkish head. Aroma is sweet cherry juice, hard candy, light tart cherry notes. Taste is medium sweet cherries and sugar up front with a light acidity that increases a bit in the finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.Quite sweet but works fine as a thirst quencher on a hot day.

3/V/15 - on tap @ the brewery during Toer de Geuze 2015 - BB: n/a (2015-594)

Clear deep ruby red to pink beer, creamy pink irregular head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, cherry candy, sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very sweet start, sugary, cherry candy, lemony, pretty acidic. Aftertaste: fruity, candy, cherry syrup, pretty acidic, sweet and still very sour at the same time.

colui72 (173) - HONG KONG - JUN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Not a fan of sour beer with cherry juice. The feeling of a cherry syrup poured in a bottle was too strong for me to bear it.

guzgorog (448) - FRANCE - JUN 5, 2015
Rouge rubis, peu de mousse. Nez intense de (arôme?) cerise. Attaque sucrée et acide, le goût de cerise est prononcé et paraît un peu artificiel. Les édulcorants laissent une sensation caractéristique et désagréable en bouche. Pas vraiment mauvais mais très écoeurant et beaucoup trop sucré...

drmet (218) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
gut -dominiert von kirschgeschmack -leichte noten von eiche,vanille und heu -gut carbonisiert -Kirsch,vanille im abgang -zu süß sollte noch erwähnen,das dieses Bier nicht ganz "Bio" ist. Es werden chemische Zucker und Fruchtzusätze verwendet Gutes Kriek Lambic,den zuckerzusatz hätten die sich aber sparen können.

Dark ruby color clear beer with pinky 1 finger head, medium bobbles, dont last too long. Aroma: a lot of cherry, some wine aromas. Maybe a hint of wild yeasts. Taste: Light to medium sweetness, medium sour. A little bit of spicy feeling on the tongue, maybe from carbonation. A lot of cherry, than cherry, than some cherry wine. Palate: medium body, light but sharp and lively carbonation. Overall: Too sweet, I sense sugar on my lips. I was expecting more dry, sour beer. From the other hand, it’s pretty damn tasty, and this carbonation is making this beer pretty refreshing. Brilliant together with chocolate cake, excellent beer for ladies.

Hamirubi (295) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
25cl bottle at home. A wellknown, commercialised kriek from Lindemans. Red to pink coloured vivid beer with some pink dashes of foam on top. The cherry and sugar flavours are omnipresent. The liquid is high in carbonation, too high even, and it tastes very sweet and candylike. It becomes a bit artificial - nonetheless not that bad (there are krieks taht are much worse, you know). Loved to see some sour notes in this one.
