This pours a rosy-red color topped by a strawberry-tinged foam. Makes me think of … Big Red. There’s a sweetly cherry-like aroma. More candied maraschino than anything fresh. The flavor is just to the wrong side of cloying—think cough drops, cough syrup, and a smooth, sickly sweet artificial cherry flavor. It’s a fun one to share but not something I’d seek out to drink all for myself alone. (That said, I’d definitely mix it—a plug of the kreik in a pint of chocolate stout works wonders.) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: cherry with artificial pharmaceutical aroma of a sweetener. Appearance: nice ruby red color, rose thin head. Taste: a little bit sour, cherry, sweetener. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: Classical stuff, but this aroma of sweetener is a complete disaster.

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 (218) - 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.

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.

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.

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 (537) - 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.

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.
