airrick2003 (570) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Appearance: this beer pours with a large pink head that settles into a nice density, the beer is black except when you hold it up to the light you can see some ruby hues Aroma: very strong cherry, tart, possibly picking up some funk Taste: sweet, tangy, tart, cherry, sour Palate: has a froth to it, leaves mouth dry, average carbonation, minimal sweet aftertaste Overall: very much cherry through and through, very sweet which makes it hard to drink fast, wish it had a bit more funk, pretty good but not sessionable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foudroyante Kriek, bottle from Carefour, Briancon. Clear red colour with small amber head that doesn’t last very long. Cherry aroma. Taste is cherries, sweet, sour, champagne like. Medium, creamy body.

Shielfing (12) - SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Dark red, thin head. Strong aroma of cherries. Super sweet and syrupy. Way too sweet for me. You can tell they add sugars and sweeteners and it covers up much of the underlying beer which is a real shame. Not a fan.

Nice aroma and taste of cherries, sourness and some barnyard notes. However it is too sweet indeed.

Saeglopur (491) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 21, 2015
375 ml bottle from Beer Store Vienna.
Wine red body, with a small, pink head.
Aroma mainly of sweet cherries, with slight barnyard.
Taste is sweet, salty and slightly sour, also mainly of cherries.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet and salty, with cherries.

OK, but much too sweet for my liking. Also no real complexity or variety. Surely not a bad beer, but not what I want from a Lambic.

Wojt0k (42) - Łódź, POLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Aromat przyjemny, oczywiście silnie wiśniowy. W smaku również wiśnie przyjemnie kwaskowe. Praktycznie bez posmaku, gorycz wręcz trudna do wyczucia, pozostaje chwilę kwaskowość, delikatna wytrawność.

Chocolate cherry and licorice with a slight sour twang. Medicinal/mineral cherry taste which is pleasing. Light bodied and slight carbonation. Yum ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HenriqueBraga (110) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 11, 2015
Cerveja vermelha intensa com aromas fortes de cereja e outras frutas vermelhas sem ser enjoativo. Amargor e corpo baixos. Retrogosto doce, persistente e refrescante.

Sjohnh (291) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Smells like cherries, looks like cherries, tastes like cherries. Fairly light body with no lasting head but a refreshing trace of carbonation. Sweet, but well balanced against the sour tang. I like sour cherry so this works OK for me.
