Marduk (3829) - Tallinn, - FEB 2, 2013
375ml bottle. Hazy deep deep red color. Pink creamy head sits on top like a worlds most delicious dessert. Fresh cherries, malty, juicy aroma. Sweet, sour, cherry stone flavor. Crisp sourness, and sweet mellowness mix well in this one. First beer in a morning? Not a problem.

Pours deep red colour with a decent, pink head. A lot of cherries in the aroma which is no surprise, but what is important that the cherry notes are fresh and natural. Except that, a whiff of funky tones can be found, though they try to be as withdrawn as it is possible. Sweet cherry theme in the taste is followed by quite a strong (as long as Kriek style of beer is concerned) sourness. So, the beer proved to be refreshing, tasty, easy-drinking and no cloggy at all.

Hevelka 2015 (dzień drugi, epizod pierwszy). Wącham i czuję intensywny zapach soku z wiśni. Próbuję - piwo z sokiem tylko, że lepsze. Zapewne jakość wynika z tego, że jest to naturalny niesłodzony sok a nie rozpuszczony w wodzie cukier z aromatem identycznym z naturalnym. Piwo jest kwaśne tą przyjemną owocową kwaśnością, która orzeźwia, gasi pragnienie i smakuje. Próbuje też moja Pani - "Bardzo dobre". Pijemy razem. Z czego ona większą połowę bo widząc jak jej smakuje ten lambic biorę drugą szklankę i idę po jakieś nowe piwo, w innym stylu.

Pours clear Ribena red with one-finger persistent pink head. Smell is dominated by sour cherry. Hard to pick up anything else. Sweetness in the taste is balanced by tart dry finish.

Parfait à boire durant l’été. Un goût très sucré de cerise, beaucoup de pétillant, une robe rouge intense.

Red colour and a fine white / reddish foam. Fine blanched sweet / bitterness and smooth touch of BRET in the mouth. Cherry, almonds and fine carbonation.

A style of beer that is not my favorite but it must recognize that it is an honest product, well made and quality. Hide too much for my taste too sweet lambic character

MarkoNm (1296) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours a dark red almost ruby color, topped with a average and very foamy white head with pink hue. Quickly settling. One of my favourite aromas of sweet cherries, very lovely. Taste is sweet and syrupy, with some soury feel from the cherries. A perfectly nice kriek.

BOTTLE. Looked like a red creaming soda, with bigger bubbly head. Insane amount of sweet cherry & sherbet on the nose. Some what of a sour beery flavour upfront, then turning to the sweet cherry but then seemed to finish bittersweet!? Still trying to get my head around these styles! Shared RW.. Sourced Pourhouse
