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

355ml bottle. Pours an unclear dark red with a medium, long lasting, pink head that laces nicely. Aroma of tart cherries. Sweet flavour of cherries and sugar with a dry, acidic, tart finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

Deep red fruit beer. Light red head which last long. The tast of cberry explodes in the mouth. An ideal early afternoon beer. A bit too sweet for me, I prefer a bit more sour, but I can imagine a lot of people like this beer.

MiamiBarman (47) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2016
I would really like to try the The Cuvee Rene after trying this one. It tastes and smells a bit artificial. A little Nyquil on the nose along with cherry freshener. Fabulous appearance served in champagne flute with a plentiful pink head. The taste is a little artificial, pretty well-balanced between acidity and sweetness. Not a bad starter lambic.

Bottle at home. Clear dark red, pink head. Nose is very sweet cherries, artificial. Taste is also very sweat, nice cherries but it still tastes artificial.

eXORRO (52) - POLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Red coloured with weak foam, which disapeared very quick. In aroma a little bit of cherries. In taste there is connection between sweetness and sour coming from cherries. Reminds me cider a little bit. High carbonated. Correct lambic.

Bottle. Deep red fruit colour, sweet cherry scented. Tasted quite sweet with a sour short finish. All in all a little too ’artificial’ tasting for me.
