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: MAY 27, 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 (3585) - 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.

Fluxing (244) - POLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Recenzja z 05.02.2014. Kolor wisniowy, klarowne. Piana wysoka, srednio szybko opada, zostawia gruba warstwe i srednio oblepia szklo. W zapachu dominuja wisnie, z tylu przebija lekka kwasna nuta lambica. W smaku wytrawne, ale jednoczesnie slodkie, dosc zaklejajace, kwasnosc srednia, mocno sciagajace, lekka nuta drewna z wanilia. Goryczki brak. Wysycenie niskie. Ogolnie dosc dobre, ale szkoda, ze domunuje slodkosc i wisnie, a kwasnosc lambica spychana jest na dalszy plan.

Bottle. Aroma of cherries plus some acid notes. In taste same things plus low bitter hop notes. Very refreshing. Good kriek for this price and availability in shops.

jfb (3680) - GERMANY - APR 28, 2014
(bottle) pours a murky ruby colour with a frothy pink head. aroma of heavy cherries and vanilla, with light notes of grass, some pears and soap. flavour is again heavy cherries, quite sweet, with some vanilla, talcum powder, cashew nuts and a refreshing tartness in the finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

MunBro (227) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Aroma of sour cherries, almost identical to Morte brand which was gross and that worried me. Actually very good. Cherry taste is bitter yet sweet at the same time. Poured a gorgeous deep red with a pink foam head - tons of lace. Good!!
