Une kriek à l’état pur une sorte de référence, la cérise se marit vraiment bien avec la bière.

Red with pinkish head. Cherry dominates, maybe some other fruity aromas as well, Heavy sweetness, thankfully some sourness, too. Bit too sweet, like a soft drink, really. A mediocre industrial lambic.

The best beer to end an evening after imperial stouts and bunch of porters. Served in a beautiful glass from brewery, loads of cherry and the lacing is pinkish. Medium bodied brew, but it is so straight forward, that you do not need to describe it. You need to taste it.

Reviewed from notes.
She pours a deep ruby red/purple colored body with a one and a half finger fluffy lumpy light pink head that lasts a good five minutes. I couldn’t see any carbonation because the body was too dark.
The smell has black cherries up front and dominating, some light barley and dark fruits. Just a tad of sourness comes out.
The taste has a decent combination between the sweet black cherries and sour cherries. Some spice mixes in with the barley.
On the palate, its about a light to medium body giving a "soda" feel to the beer as the carbonation makes itself present. Still, this is very easy to drink. With the low ABV, this is very sessionable.
Overall, is this a beer? Ok, I know this is my first lambic, but, I’m not sure what else to say other than I wouldn’t mind trying others of this style.

750 mL bottle at a tasting on January 13. Oh man, this is great! I’ve definitely taking a liking to Krieks, and this one is no exception. The pour is a great reddish, with some lingering pink head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma is dominated by cherry. A little tartness, but great aroma. The flavor is the same. It’s definitely got the sour type characteristics, and a lovely fruity sourness. The mouth feel is a little light, but the carbonation really brings this one together. Great Kriek

Looks.. Cheery red with a medium long lasting pink head. Smells.. Cherries and sweetish sugary scent, some wood. Tastes..cherries, more sweet cherries..slight tart sour bits, but really lacks the any real sourness.

Sweet, cherry aroma overwhelms anything else that might be there. Beautiful red colour, small pink head. Taste reflects aroma in that cherry /sweetness is very dominant. Good creaminess and finish, pleasant feel overall. A great tasting beer (if you like cherries). One small bottle is enough for me as sweetness is intense.

Ruby red colour with light pink head. Obviously the aroma of cherries. Fresh cherry taste something sour. Slightly spicy aftertaste.
