bartazo (87) - Esztergom, - MAR 7, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Véletlenül tévedtünk a győri John Bull Pub étterembe, de egy megérzés miatt vacsorából jövet éppen itt pihentünk meg, hátha találunk valami különlegeset levezetésként. Jelentem nekem ez meggysör az volt! Mindig is oda voltam a meggymárkáért és egyszerűen szólva az a sör egy erősen prémium meggymárka alkohollal. Már ránézésre is megnyerő a teljességet formáló gömbszerű pohárban kiérkező mélypiros színű ital, a tetején vastag, rózsaszín habbal. Illata a savanykás gyümölcsé. Kortyolva a szénsavasságát fokozza az illatára is jellemző savanykás, de mégis édes meggy aroma. Ez az íz uralkodik és szinte mindent el is nyom maga körül. Ideális desszert helyett vagy mellé. 3,5 % alkohol tartalma végig a háttérben marad, az íze nem is utal rá, hogy ez nem csak egy kitűnő üdítő, hanem igenis egy jól eltalált sör!

Bottle split with James at his place, cheers to JF, 13/12/14. Pours cherry red with a decent crimson covering that dissipates then retains. Nose is cherry drops, cherry tinged straw, glazed cherries, all cherry fundom. Taste comprises more cherry vibes, a little tarter/sharper than the nose suggested, cherry drops, straw, light smoke. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Drinkable basic kriek model, a touch sweet, not on a par with the best of class.

0,375L bottle. Pours pink-red with light pink head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very sweet, some sourness, cherries. Flavor follows the nose. Overall: ok brew, very easy to drink

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Red beer, beige head. Nose is cherry with starchy notes. Flavor is cherry, tartness, slight sweetness, acidity. Syrupy mouthfeel. Decent.

LaViolette (34) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2014
Good, with a nice purple colour. Too sweet as all the Lindemans fruity beers for me. The Cantillon kriek, which has no sugar at all is way better, but I guess less drinkable for many people.

thomashall (159) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle poured into chalice. Pours purplish red with minimal head. Strong tart cherry smell. Taste subtle cherry with nice sour pucker at the end. Not very complicated beer but very delicious.

superspak (2836) - Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/17/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy pink head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sweet/tart black cherry, cherry skin, candi sugar, straw, grass, light pepper, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with balanced authentic cherries, candi sugar sweetness, and light earthy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big sweet/tart black cherry, cherry skin, candi sugar, straw, grass, light pepper, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart black cherry, cherry skin, candi sugar, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice robustness and balance of authentic cherries, candi sugar sweetness, and light earthy yeast flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly syrupy, and slightly acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4%. Overall this is an excellent sweetened fruit Lambic style. All around great robustness and balance of authentic cherry, candi sugar sweetness, and light earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Cristobal37 (278) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Tastes like a carbonated sour cherry juice. A nice lambic but now that I’m looking at all of the added ingredients I’m slightly put off. My wife loves it. Not as good as Boon or Cantillion, but very popular probably because it’s really drinkable.

Think dark red pour. Looks kind of like a carbonated red wine. Aroma is all cherry. Lots of tart cherry flavor. Slightly musty aroma and taste. Very good.
