Poured a deep, purplish-red with a pink, fizzy head. Aroma is all fruit, dominated by cherries of course. Taste is sweet and sour cherry candy with some slight hints of malt and wheat. Itís certainly good, but nothing more than a novelty act for this beer drinker.

250ml bottle. Bright red colour with a pink foam head leaving some lacing. Aroma of sweet dessert cherry, almonds. Taste is sour, sweet cherry, woody, lemon, candy, funk. Light bodied, soft carbonation, dry sweet & tart finish. Quite drinkable.

Aroma is, what can I say, mostly cherry. Pours red with effervescent pink head. In flavor cherry sour (surprise, surprise), slightly tart, after a while turns heavily sweet, syrupy. Without the sweetness the sour taste could be tormenting, but Iíd still prefer it that way I think. Itís hard to taste anything else aside from cherries but I think I feel slight barnyard in the finish. Itís my first clash with Kriek style, itís definitely tasty and interesting, but I probably wonít be repeating this one, and my next choice is going to be something unsweetened.

minihame2 (422) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Deep red colour with a nice pink, foamy head. Somewhat soapy aroma, lots of cherries, some malts. Very sweet taste at first which then becomes really sour towards the end. Slick mouthfeel, not very rich bodied, soft and low carbonation. Seems solid over all although I donít really enjoy this style.

I donít think like I can rate this properly since it doesnít feel like Iím drinking a beer at all. Being such, however, I must admit the taste is truly delicous. It smells of cherries basically, maybe thereís a subtle maltiness underneath but itís almost unnoticeable. Beautiful colour as well, and I was surprised that itís head, though slim, was quite durable. A bit turned off by the amount of additives it has, though.

invinoveritas (85) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Ruby and fairly effervescent. Aroma of stone fruits, dominated by plums and cherries. Tart to taste, but balanced by some hefty sweetness. Fairly syrupy, sticky mouthfeel. Feels more like juice.

visionthing (4600) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2016
37,5cl bottle at Kolm Sibulat, Tallinn. Pours deep red with a nice, pink head. Fruity aroma dominated by cherries with hint of almonds and sour berries. Moderate to medium sweet with nice acidity and fairly decent cherry flavour. Almost impressive for the low alcohol content. A bit on the sweet side, but still fairly refreshing.
