scoth (516) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours clear dark cherry red, with a medium pink head, very fine lacing, very good retention. Strong cherry candy aroma, with a very light biscuit note. Medium-light body, crisp. Mildly sweet, lingering medium sour, almost no bitterness.

Bottle (as Foudroyante Kriek). A clear deep red colour with a medium high, fizzy pink head. An aroma of marzipan and cherries. The taste is medium sweet.

Do not think of this as a beer, although the body that comes from the beer prevent this from being to sweet,,, it IS However sweet... For me the robustness of the lambic shines through and makes it a very enjoyable drink. Much better than many craft beer attempts on this mix of lambic with fruit.

Alengrin (2186) - 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 (2669) - 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 (292) - 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.
