25 cL bottle (Souvenirs du Terroir Kriek (s Lands Souvenirs Kriek 3.5% ABV)). Pours dark brown with a red hue and a creamy light brown/pink head. Clear cherry flavoured with a little apple sourness. Flavour is sweet cherries with a peppery twist. Lovely sweet sour. Sweet sour finish. Simple kriek, nice.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2004
A clear red beer with a huge beutiful pink head. The aroma is totally dominated by cherries. The flavor is also dominated by cherries, but on a woody background and hints of sourness. It is only hints of the wild fermentation - and that is a little sad. Drink it cold as an apperitif - but don't expect a real lambic from this beer.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2005 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Comes as "Foudroyante Kriek" - the name used by Lindemans on the French market. Very pretty, deep red colour with a lovely pink head. Pronounced cherry in the nose - apparently with no less than 25% fruit (both whole cherries and cherry juice). Rather sweet and cherry-flavoured with an underlying tartness from the Lambuc. Unfortunately also with artificial sweeteners and aroma. Shame on you. 260603

joergen (20476) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy red coloured with a medium sized pink head. Aroma of apples, marzipan and cherries with woody notes. Sweet flavour of overriped apples, cherries and marzipan.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2002
Deep red with semi-sweet, fresh cherry flavour. Refreshing, but far from the complexity of Girardin’s or Boon’s interpretations of the style.

Draft @ Lindemans. Pours a clear red color with a small pinkish head. Has a sweetish fruity cherry aroma with some tart hints. Sweet fruity cherry flavor. Has a very sweet fruity cherry finish.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Red color. Quite nice, sweet, strong cherry flavor and aroma; cherry kernels. A soft syrupy drink, but still enjoyable.

Early amateur rating warning! Fabulous fruit and tarty cherry beer, sweet as well.

16th July 2009
Purplish red beer with a pink head! Crisp palate a little dry. Sweet and sour morello cherry. Not a subtle kriek but after an evening of drinking English bitters - it goes down a treat!
