33 cl bottle. Shiny dark red to bordeaux, reddish head, looks like foamy red wine. Nose is of course cherry. Aroma of cherry. Sadly i had nose somewhat clogged so can’t be detailed. Taste is acidic. Absolutely not a fan of the style, this appears to be a soft drink to me...

En bouteille. Arômes de bonbon aux cerises, Mr. Freeze, sirop pour le rhume... En bouche c’est beaucoup de cerises, très peu de bois. L’Acidité de la cerise se fait bien sentir mais celui du vieillissement en barrique est très timide. Palais bien rond, c’est au palais qu’on sent le lambic et c’est à mon avis ce qui sauve un peu la note de la bière. Overall c’est très bon, très sucré, certainement un produit à essayer mais on est encore loin du produit d’exception.

Belle robe rouge cerise!avec une jolie mousse rosée persistante. Le nez nous offre des arômes de cerises très naturels et légèrement sucrés. La bouche nous amène sur un goût très agréable de cerises(toujours!) avec une petite pointe d’amertume et d’acidité bien équilibrées. Un très bon Kriek qui nous fait oublier la "Vilaine Bécasse"!.........

Goûtée dans un verre Dorelei. Belle robe rouge cerise(normal!!!!) avec une mousse rose de bonne tenue et une carbonatation soutenue. Le nez est sur la cerise. Le goût ajoute des saveurs sucrées et acides très naturelles donc très plaisantes. L’arrière bouche est douce et légèrement acide. Un bon Kriek bien "nature".

25cl bottle. Pours dark red color with weak reddish foam. Tastes too much like cherry juice. Also a little too much sour.

Light sweet cherry aroma. Deep cherry colour. Taste is strong cherry, sherbet. Palate slightly drying. Very good cherry lambic beer.

Foerdifuxx (220) - Franconia, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2016
Hazy red coloured beer with a small, short lasting red head. Aromas of cherry, cider, bitter almond. Taste is medium sour, also sweet, light acidic. Fizzy Carbonation, thick texture, medium body.

sound67 (699) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle, 250ml. *** Colour: Dark, deep cherry red. Small pink head. *** Nose: Rather intense sweet and sour cherries, hints of spices. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, hardly watery. Modest carbonation. *** Taste: Strong sour cherries at the start, turning more lemony towards the middle. Slightly bitter-ish cherry stones in the finish, strong lemon and mild sour cherries in the aftertaste. *** Impressions: Typical of the lambic fruit beer style, the cherries are coming on strong. More sour than sweet though, with plenty of lemon. Very nice, but is it still beer?

250ml bottle. Pours noticeably and a deep purpley red. Aroma is sweet cherries and a little bread. Taste is cherry, with plenty of interplay between sweet and sour. The body is thick, juicy and sweet, with plenty of tight bubbles bringing the sourness. Fantastic.

I drank this during different oportunities. The color is red and a bit dark. For the style, there is, of course, one side sour but the mix with the cherry is nice, sugar, refreshing and nice during the summer.

0,375l bottle from Merkur. My first Lambic. When you are used to the extremely sour finish, it is a refreshing alcoholic cherry juice. But I wouldn't call this a beer, no way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
