Nose of sweet alcoholic cherry candy! Huge pink head. Great taste with HUGE up front tart. Mellows out around half way through, then picks up its sour habits right before the end. Some what complex but the sweet and sour are almost over the top. Very good though.

Bottle from Proof. Deep red pour with a thin pinkish head. Aroma of sugary cherry and light sour. Tastes are big fruity sweet cherry that’s cut with more tartness than I expected (for some reason). Little dry in the finish. Extra point for availability and relatively low price.

My label was different so I’m making an educated guess that this is what I had. This is not only the first fruit beer I have ever liked but this is also a fruit beer that blew me away. Great sparkling fruit juice like lambic with incredible tart cherry flavor, and I don’t even like cherries. Im certain Belgians are the only ones who can do fruit beer. I feel bad in a way giving it this high of a rating considering it barely resembles a beer & is more like a sparkling fruit juice but it is very good, light, refreshing and kinda girly but I like it!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
25 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy red with a medium pink head. Aroma is quite sweet with syrup, some cherries, lemonade, candy and sugar. Taste is also sweet and sugary with some cherry syrup. Medium body and soft carbo. More a soda than a proper kriek.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250 ml botle @ Fox and hound, Aabenrå. Clear ruby red body with a moderate sized, lacing pink head. Strong aroma of sweet cherries with a hint of almond. Flavor is acidic and sweet, mostly sweet, lots of sweet cherry with some almond. It might not be artificial cherry, but sure the flavor is from juice and not much fermented cherries here. To sweet and sticky, this has not much to do with real kriek. Somehow drinkable as a desert or sweet sauce as there at least are some the acidic present.

Drank from a bottle at home. Tastes strongly like cherry juice. Maybe a bit too sweet. The colour is nice!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy dark red-purple pour with receding bright pink head. Aroma is intensely sweet cherry, almond, cherry syrup, jam. Taste is super sweet, a bit cloying, very much like drinking a cherry soft drink: sweet, carbonated, no alcohol and no acidity. As far as drinking soda goes, this is great soda - I’d love to see it on the fountain at McDonald’s. Not quite such a great beer though.
