This is my first Lambic. I’ve read about the sour flavors and it frightened me away. This was a shock to say the least. Strong cherry aromas, deep red in hue, tastes like cherries, no hints of bitterness. I am a convert. I’m going to sell plasma to keep this habit going!

Bottle shared with McTapps. After 700 beers you don’t think a beer could surprise you. Especially when you know/other krieks this one is definitely a bomb. I mean, imagine an easy going beer with some sourness which tastes (and I mean REALLY tastes !) like the most delicious cherry you’ve ever directly eaten from the tree. Well, this beer is that sort of fluid cherry. There isn nothing bad or strange about that one. Cherry, dry, quaffy - like heaven. Perfect beer - at least the perfect kriek.

This Lambic may cost a bit more, but you definately get what you pay for here...Even if you dont like ’fruity’ beer, you owe it to yourself to give this a try!

This is a beer that has a very full, fruity flavor, without being overly sweet. The aroma is quite noticeable, but in a good way. Has been a personal favorite for quite a while now.

People. People. This is one of the better delicacies I have ever had. The head was wonderous. Light but beautiful cherry aroma. The taste was simply outstanding. Not too sweet at all. A very professional beer. The only downfall was the price. But I will have one occasionally throughout the year from now on!

Although not quite as good as the rasberry due to a slight mouth pucker, this is one of the best beers I have ever had. Really this is not a beer flavor but one of cherries of course. It is like a fizzy cherry juice that is very fresh and refreshing. Try it you'll like it.
