375 ml bottle from The Party Source. Pours a just barely cloudy reddish color - or maybe more of a rich, dark pink (like a ruby red grapefruit) - with a finger of pink tinted head. Lots of sweet cherries in this one, with some backing fruity funk, sugars, and earthy notes. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, fruity, slightly funky mouthfeel. Not necessarily true to style but tasty.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 The aroma is very bubble gum cherry and a bit of yeast. Pours dark candy red, sparkling, and with a moderate head. The taste is sweet and just a little bit sour. In fact, itís only this little bit of sourness that makes it marginally better than a cheap fizzy drink. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, sweet finish. Well, itís not really really bad, itís just so far from the prototypical beer that itís not fair to place it in the same category. Far as cherry syrups go, however, um, Iíve had much better. Strangely enough, even Fortuna Wiśniowa is better than this.

My first lambic. Had a sweet cherry aroma. It tasted of tangy tart cherrys, but also some sweetness in there. Had a fruity bitter aftertaste. Pretty fun little beer, but I couldnít have too much of it.

czlowiekwiadro (198) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2014
w zapachu dojrzałe wiśnie, migdały i bardzo lekki fuzel. przejrzysty rubinowy kolor, ze średnio obfitą, ale trwałą růżową pianą. w smaku na początku duża kwaśność, ale potem wchodzi sporo słodyczy. bardzo owocowe w smaku - dojrzałe wiśnie i migdały i subtelna słodowa nuta. dość aksamitne. bardzo ciekawe

Bottle. Pours bright red with pink head. Aroma is sweet, cherries, intense and nice. Taste bit sweet, intense cherries. Bit sour finish. Nice one.

For the price, this Lambic is damn hard to beat. Kriek has an attractive red, vinous appearance with a fizzy but robust head. With a fresh cherry aroma and a touch of yeast, the smell is simple but inviting. Taste manages to be sweet and fruity without tasting like cough syrup or cherry soda. The slightly tart finish and bubbly carbonation help to keep things light and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Drunk 14/05/14 at home. bought from corner shop along with framboise. cam gets that one, reckon he got the better deal. pours deep ruby red with a nice pink head, heavy lacing, looks nice. aroma is huge smack of cherry and nothing else. taste is like cherry tango, barely any sourness. lively carbonation tho so it would be ok on a sunny day but thats about it. seriously this shit was just like cherry tango i swear to god

lucertola (9) - - MAY 14, 2014 does not count
Aroma is very dense and fruity. Color is dark cherry wood. Taste is very fruity and sweet. Too much carbonation that intervene with the taste.

Idiosynkrasie (3630) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2014
250ml bottle [3.5% abv]. Clear, deep red colour with average, frothy, foamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, pale pink head. Sweet-ish, slightly artificial cherry aroma, fractose, ascorbic acid. Taste is moderately tart, a touch of sherbet, moderately to heavily sweet, slightly artificial notes of cherry. Rather artificial, but passably tasty too.

Another super sweet lambic. Tons of sweet artificial tasting cherry juice with splenda. Way sweet on the finish but kinda just reminds me of drinking juice.
