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

invinoveritas (65) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Ruby and fairly effervescent. Aroma of stone fruits, dominated by plums and cherries. Tart to taste, but balanced by some hefty sweetness. Fairly syrupy, sticky mouthfeel. Feels more like juice.

visionthing (4477) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2016
37,5cl bottle at Kolm Sibulat, Tallinn. Pours deep red with a nice, pink head. Fruity aroma dominated by cherries with hint of almonds and sour berries. Moderate to medium sweet with nice acidity and fairly decent cherry flavour. Almost impressive for the low alcohol content. A bit on the sweet side, but still fairly refreshing.

Melnis (400) - LATVIA - MAY 25, 2016
Nicely balanced cherry lambic. Gives the freshenes you would expect, after a bottle becomes bit boring

Gehbe (13) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 22, 2016
Aroma cherries, sugar, candy, some brett. Taste sweet and sour, way too sweet. Overall too sweet for me.

koshack (1178) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Kolor wiśniowy. Piękna, drobna, różowa piana. W aromacie bardzo intensywny aromat wiśni, migdały, lekka kwaskowość. W smaku mocno wiśniowe. Jest kwaśne, ale nie mocno. Pozostawia lekki cierpkawy posmak. Lekkie, bardzo pijalne.

dnicolaescu (1674) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 14, 2016
BOTTLE 25 CL. The aroma is plain (well ripe) sour cherry compote or juice. Not too complex, but intense. The taste is similar, cherry, the acidity is more like soda than lambic. Light nutty/fruit stone bitterness. Not much more than that, not even alcohol.

SinH4 (2185) - Garching, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Clear ruby color with pink head. Aroma is sweet cherry, some vanilla, juice-like. Taste is sweet cherry but some wood, cork, horseblanket, and base lambic is noticeable. Finish is dry and sweet at the same time. Medium carbonation. If you accept the fact that this is a sweetened Kriek, I suppose you can live with it.

oczek2015 (221) - Przemysl, POLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Butelka 25cl z datą ważności 20.10.2017, temperatura degustacji 12-14 stopni +, szkło teku. Aromat: zdominowany przez wiśnię niestety brak dzikości, nie wyczuwam charakterystycznej dla stylu stodoły-siana-końskiego pledu. Słabo kompot z wiśni, brak wad sensorycznych ale w stylu jest po prostu słabo. Barwa: czerwony wpadający w wiśniowy, klarowne. Piana: średnia, blado różowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. Smak: wiśnia góruje słodki kompotowy początek który przechodzi szybko w umiarkowanie kwaśny finisz, niestety tu też brak stajni. Lekkie,musujące, delikatnie cierpkie, pijalne. Dobre piwo do wypicia w upalny dzień jednakże w stylu słabe.

Echon (281) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2016
Dark cherry red and light-bodied lambic, with a rich cherry aroma and flavour. Somewhat sweet and sour, with no bitterness, and notes of brett in the finish. Overall, a delicious and refreshing cherry beer that goes very well with sunshine.

willisread (2036) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2016
Bottle multiple times in the US and Japan. Cherry nose with some faint oak and light sourness. Sweet on the palate with a light tartness that comes through. Better than most of the Lindemans but still nowhere near a Cantillon or Hanssens. Good beginners fruit lambic.
