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

PabloZab (321) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 30, 2015
Tap (Academus, Wroclaw). Barwa ciemno miedziano-czerwona z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana kremowo-czerwona, niezbyt trwala ale cienki kozuszek utrzymuje sie calkiem dlugo. Ladny lacing. Aromat owocowy, wisniowy, intensywny, przyjemny. W smaku kwasne, wisniowe z delikatnym slodkim posmakiem. Bardzo przyjemne, pijalne, przyjemne, nawet sesyjne.

Ammon (25) - Jaworzno, POLAND - APR 29, 2015
Umiarkowanie intensywny wiśniowy aromat i miła dla oka czerwonawa barwa. W smaku dominuje przyjemna kwaśność i słodycz w połączeniu z ciężkim do scharakteryzowania (na moim obecnym etapie) posmakiem "starości" w tle. Bardzo ciekawe piwo.

cervmagpt (325) - PORTUGAL - APR 27, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 17F). Bottle 25 cl - Batch GB050KR023323. AROMA: dominant sweet cherry aroma with a slight artificial touch. no hop aromas and very faint to non existent brett aromas with a slight acidic touch. APPEARANCE: red color and almost clear. very thin pink head with average retention. TASTE: dominant cherry flavour mildly sweet, balanced with an acidic note. no hop bitterness with a semi-dry finish and no brett flavours noticeable or extremely faint. PALATE: light body with a medium tart sensation. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an average fruit lambic without the characteristic brett notes.

Aggiebob (157) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle poured into a flute glass. It pours with a clear reddish hue and a pink head that dissipated quickly. The aroma was like cherry cough syrup, while the flavor was sour cherries. It has a very light body, with a fizzy tongue feel and a dry finish.

DutchMark (230) - NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
Not for me. I like a good kriek lambic to be sour funky and tasting of the cherries it was rested on in the barrel. This one has added cherry juice, flavoring and way too much sugar. It is a nice lemonade. Might go well with a creamy dessert.

Borresteijn (5200) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
37.5cl Bottle from AH. Clear deep red colour, pink head. Aroma of sweet cherry, marzipan, blueberries. Flavour is sweet, cherries, cassis, marzipan, light sourness in the finish. Light bodied. Low ABV version of Kasteel Rouge. Nice.

brnandersen (2298) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2015
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Flute. Lovely deep red colour with a dense, pink head. Sweet aroma with marzipan, artificial sweetener, cherries, juice and faint yeasty notes. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with cherries, juice and only a faint acidic note. Lacks Lambic character to be good. A bit of a disappointment - the Cassis version was far better.

Bottle from local AH. Slightly hazy dark red coloured, with a medium pink head. Nose is sour and sweet cherry, cherry candy. Flavour is fairly sweet cherry, later more sour cherry. Very fruity. High carbonation.

Dark red colour with pinky head. Aroma is gorgeous with cherry, some other fruity notes. Flavours are the same, firstly with slightly sweet notes, which immediately transforms to sourness. Dry finish with low carbonation.
