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

On bottle as Foudroyante kriek from a small shop in Collioure. Purple color, good carbonation and plenty of pink foam. Intense cherry aromas which completely dominates the beer. Medium body & complexity. Quite sweet. Enjoyable

This one poured an expected very dark red with no head. There was the expected wheat malt cereal/grainy thing going on, and no noticeable hops. They obviously in balance to keep the cherry flavor from going overly sweet. A great dessert beer.

Bottle. Garnet colored with decent head and lacing. Smells like a cherry jolly rancher. Flavor is fruity and tart. A nice change of pace.

Nice, medium deep cherry (sic!) colour. Nose: Intense nose of cherries and sweet almonds, some marzipan. Taste: Fresh, quite fruity, semi-sweet. Cherry and almond taste. Fine, medium carbonation. Medium light body. Aftertaste slightly bitter and a bit short. Quite refreshing and well balanced. A good, "commercial" Kriek.
