Appearance is deep dark red, almost purple with minimal foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is strong black cherry, almost reminiscent of cough syrup. Taste is sweet cherry that turns tart and acidic from the lactic acid. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Finishes dry with a cherry tartness that lingers. Overall not as sour as I had expected for a lambic.

Cherry, more like a champagne than beer, red with pink head that cleared very quickly.  Crisp, refreshing.

750ml Bottle pours a bright pink color with some frothy head. Slight sour cherry flavor that dissipates quickly. Barely sour though.

crlnts (214) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Pink head, strangely raspberry body. Cherries, almond, sugar, sour. Was expecting something even more sweet from them. Red Bull quality. Thanks for the aspartame, but I prefer oude krieks.

bellco33 (273) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Poured from bottle into sample glass: Pours purple-pink with a pink head. Smell is cherry syrup and a lot of sugar. Flavor is not at all tart, just cherry juice / soda. Note very good or kreik-like. Pretty medicinal. Medium body, maximum diabetes.

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Bella schiuma rosa e persistente, colore rosso scuro rubino, aroma di cilege, nota di mandorla e vino, al palato corpo leggero e buona carbonazione, si sposano magnificamente la dolcezza dei malti e delle ciliegie con l’acidità dovuta ai lieviti selvaggi, piacevole il retrogusto di mandorle e noci. Una kriek che mi è piaciuta parecchio.

pomko (185) - UKRAINE - JUL 11, 2014
Ruby color. Smells of fresh cherries. Sour taste of cherries. Becomes more pleasant on the aftertaste. Easy to drink for a lambic. Not so acidic.

BitchPls (536) - FINLAND - JUL 10, 2014
ABV 3,5%. Cherry red lambic with a pink head. A bit artificial cherry aroma - reminds of canned cherries. Taste is really sweet and a little tart. Cherry juice flavoured. Medium carbonation. Quite sticky mouth feel. Too sweet - it’s like liquid candy. Your teeth will fall off.

LordAltbier (102) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2014
Aussehen tut das Bier top: ein schönes fruchtiges Rot, es schmeckt wie Ahoi Brause. Mit einem Alkoholgehalt von 3,5% ist es super. Es ist kein Biermischgetränk, man schmeckt sofort das die Kirschen während des Brauvorgangs zugegeben wurden. Ein tolles, leckeres und saures Bier.

25cl bottle from Charter Mall, Changchun. Pours deep red with a pink head. Aroma of cherries. Taste the same, bittersweet finish. Nice.
