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

Think dark red pour. Looks kind of like a carbonated red wine. Aroma is all cherry. Lots of tart cherry flavor. Slightly musty aroma and taste. Very good.

Draft @ The Wharf with DroolYeast. Aroma of sweet cherries. Clear red colour with medium red head. Very sweet and sour taste of cherries. Sweet and tart finish. Soapy texture, full to medium body. Average carbonation.

Niksko (370) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours bright ruby red with some fine pink head. Nose is artificial cherry cough syrup, but also legit sour cherry and some sharp lemon. Flavor is more artificial cherry, but it soon fades to leave a sharpness at the back of the tongue, along with some real sour cherry flavor on the finish. Pretty sweet, but the sourness balances reasonably well. Sticky and viscous mothfeel from all of the sugar. Pretty good, but it would be better without the artificial flavor.

pkomar (117) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Nice aroma of cherries, light yeasty aroma. not too complex. Pours red with medium sized head, that quickly disappears. Nothing exciting. Taste is mostly sweet, like a cherry juice. There is some sourness, almost no bitterness. Pretty high carbonation, decent drinkability. ok beer, but I wish it was less sweet and more sour..

Arczir (127) - POLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Tap. Ruby pour with a spark and pink head of mediocre retention. Nose is mostly cherries, pretty intense and with somewhat sweet note to it, sort of syrupy. Taste is mostly sour, but not overwhelmingly sour. Just sour-sweet. Not very complex, lacks the intensity of other lambicish, belgian notes, but is quite refreshing and crisp. Also, some minimal hoppiness on the palate and in taste.

CraftBeerNick (962) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at home, acquired at Brussels, Eurostar Lounge, 26th October 14. Intense red colour, full on aroma, cherry drop sweets on the aroma and syrup. Taste is cherry boiled sweets, slight acid, very nice and full of flavour. Pretty tasty

Crisp cherry smell and taste. Tastes more like a cider. Unusual taste but very refreshing

Gorm (1376) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Mørk rød farve med lyserødt skum. Lukt av kirsebær. Smak av kirsebær og plommer. Passer sikkert godt som desertvin. Søt og syrlig ettersmak.

nilsas (1621) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Frisk duft av kirsebær. Mørkerød dunkel farge. Dekkende rosa skum, noe heng langs kant. Frisk syrlig smak av kirsebær, men noe for søt etter min smak.

Vivid red with pink head. Looks unnatural. Syrup, sugary taste. Overall its not too bad.
