Bottle. Poured a pale red with an average sized fizzy pink head and had good lacing. The aroma was strong of black cherries with a mild sweet malt and sweet yeast scent. It tasted robustly sweet of cherries and slightly acidic at first and finished mildly sweet with a nice black cherry flavor that stayed with you for a nice duration. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall an excellent Lambic!!

Dark ruby color clear beer with pinky 1 finger head, medium bobbles, dont last too long. Aroma: a lot of cherry, some wine aromas. Maybe a hint of wild yeasts. Taste: Light to medium sweetness, medium sour. A little bit of spicy feeling on the tongue, maybe from carbonation. A lot of cherry, than cherry, than some cherry wine. Palate: medium body, light but sharp and lively carbonation. Overall: Too sweet, I sense sugar on my lips. I was expecting more dry, sour beer. From the other hand, it’s pretty damn tasty, and this carbonation is making this beer pretty refreshing. Brilliant together with chocolate cake, excellent beer for ladies.

Hamirubi (272) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
25cl bottle at home. A wellknown, commercialised kriek from Lindemans. Red to pink coloured vivid beer with some pink dashes of foam on top. The cherry and sugar flavours are omnipresent. The liquid is high in carbonation, too high even, and it tastes very sweet and candylike. It becomes a bit artificial - nonetheless not that bad (there are krieks taht are much worse, you know). Loved to see some sour notes in this one.

rayaron (613) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle 250ml. Hazy red with medium pinkish head. Strong aroma of cherry, a bit creamy. Intense flavor of cherry, notes of lemon and candy, a bit syrupy, mild sourness. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

Icedwarf (621) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Donkerrood bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en fruitig, kersen overheerst vanzelfsprekend. Goed te drinken als dorstlesser.

Lilja (2036) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av söta körsbär, fruktos och körsbärskärnor. Mycket sötma, rund och len, fin syrlighet och lätt beska. Gott!

DrunkSanta410 (529) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a dark red with pink head. Decent retention. Aroma is sweet, semi tart cherries. Almost like a pie filling. Smells nice. Taste is a nice mixture of sweet and tart. Nice cherries. Medium carbonation, light body. Refreshing, good dessert. I prefer the raspberry from Lindemans.

racedom (23) - Guadalajara, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2015
ruby with a frothy pink head. Aroma: sweet cherrie.. Taste sweet Cherries with a little sourness and some tanine in the back. Dominant sweet Cherries, a bit too sweet, but still good.
