0.25 l bottle from local supermarket. Dark red colour with pink head. Smells and tastes cherry. And that’s all there is. This is modern sweetened Kriek with artificial cherries. Nice but Oude Kriek would be better. Oh, my bottle had 3.5% alcohol.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark cherry amber color, pink head cover, mottled bands of lace. Taste is malt that is immediately joined by tart cherry, then some carbonation on the swallow with the tart cherry providing balance. A solid, easy to drink, Kriek. Recommended.

Pours a clear beautiful dark ruby. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention. Rich nose of sweet cherry, slanted to black cherries. Underneath is a lively tart note. Almost medium bodied with a smooth texture that has creamy aspects. Above normal carbonation with effervescence from the middle on. The carbonation is tight, prickly and lively...a masterpiece. The flavor profile is World Class. It is intense in cherry flavor, somewhat complex and perfectly balanced with both sweet, sour and tart elements. It begins with a burst of sweet cherry over a rich malt background that is biscuit in nature. In the middle, a rich tartness effervesces. As the sweetness fades, a subtle sour undertone emerges. The finish is a slow fade of tart black cherry over a subtle sweetness and just a hint of sourness.

Keogh (126) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Barwa wiśniowa, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, długo sie utrzymuje i ładnie zdobi szkło. W aromacie czuć kwaśne wiśnie bardzo intensywnie. W smaku wiśnie, troszkę słodyczy i kwaskowatość. Wysycenie wysokie. Lekkie piwo, nie oferuje jakiś super wrażeń - ale ta wiśnia jest bardzo przyjemna.

gripweed57 (907) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
750 ml bottle. Mahogany red color. Small creamy light pink color. Tart cherry nose. Tangy yeasty cherry fruit flavor is quite refreshing. Sour dough bready flavor is quite unique. My favorite of the Lindeman fruit lambics.

RW80 (1140) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
25cl Bottle. Appearance: . a dark ruby with a frothy pink head. Aroma: sweet cherries and yogurt. Taste sweet Cherries with a little sourness and some tanine in the back. Dominant sweet Cherries, a bit too sweet, but still good. medium, syrupy body, average carbonation.. Allthough too sweet there is enough quality there.
