On tap Jhb. Pours clear red with slight pink head and medium carbonation. Aroma is sugar, strawberry and cherry. Taste is very sweet. Overall very sweet but enjoyable and winner with the ladies.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
Easily the most famous and most popular of the Lindemans products, certainly in Belgium. An archetypical ’sweet kriek lambic’ with lots of sugar, cherry juice and extracts, and limited lambic character, though still very recognisable in subdued woodiness, very faint funkiness and subtle lactic and citric acidity. Beautiful red colour and pink head (revealing the fact that extracts have been applied) and elegant glass, I can understand why many people (especially ladies, without wanting to be a male chauvinist) like this, but too sweet for my tooth. And to think that I have even seen a few old ladies adding grenadine to it... The horror!

MrSnafu (4) - GERMANY - SEP 2, 2014 does not count
It is a little darker than I would like. Nice cherry taste to it would be really good on draft I think.

Habanero (2663) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2014
Tap. Deep red and hazy body with an average, creamy and pink head. Aroma of cherries and marzipan. Very sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium bodied, oily te xture and soft carbonation. Way too sweet for my taste but the aroma is excellent.

Tsekouratos (285) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - AUG 23, 2014
375 ml bottle shared. Red color, intense and clear with a lightly pink head. Aromas of cherry juice, yeast maybe. Sweet and sour taste, some cherries, maybe some sugar. Very clear palate and refreshing. Light to medium body with a medium carbonation.

(Flasche) Es hat eine hell- bis rubinrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer rosa Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist wie die Kirschlutscher aus der Kindheit. Der Geschmack ist säuerlich sonst wie das Aroma. Es ist spritzigund recht süß.

Unvisible (17) - GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
Lange hab ich mich gefreut dieses Bier zu trinken und meine Erwartungen wurden erfüllt. Kirschfarbendes Bier und ein konstante Schaum, kann ich mir gut auch als Dessertbier vorstellen( Thema Foodpairing lässt Grüßen)

Vighals (1222) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Rød tåkete med rosa skum som legger seg fort. Lukter mandel og kirsebær. Syrlig mot sur kirsebær. Noe sødme, men det er den som sitter lengst. Lite kullsyre.

Een heel lekkere zoete kriek. Misschien iets te zoet voor sommigen, maar heel lekker als het warm weer is.

Jado (548) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2014
From 350 ml bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a fluffy pink head. Aromas of sour cherry, almond/marzipan, lemon and a bit of funk. Taste is sharply sour at the front before a fresh cherry burst in the mid-palate. Finishes with touches of almond, white grapes and raspberry. Seems pretty true to style. Refreshing though.
