3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
About as red as it comes really. It looks like original recipe Berroca with a temporary white head that looks like spun marshmallow. Aromas of sour cherry (go figure), sweet juicy and enticing. The flavour is more tart than I was expecting, but even then it was fairly mild. It gained a somewhat acidic quality the longer it sat on the palate, which it did for a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
250ml bottle. Clear deep ruby red color. Small size, bubbly pink head, stays. Cherry, faint sour, bit yeasty and some sweet notes in aroma. Cherry, sour, slightly sugary taste. Sharp bit, but mellow at the same time. Somewhat aggressive. Clean mouthfeel. Short cherry in aftertaste. Nice one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,25L. Clear, light red colour with big, frothy, light red head and a lot of visible carbonation. Aroma of cherries and nothing else. Taste starts light sweet and gently, followed by cherry mouthfeel and turns into sour/acidic aftertaste. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nice, refreshing and easy to drink kriek.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The standard ’compromized’ kriek Mort Subite, a classic since 1972, restyled when they launched Mort Subite XTreme Kriek and now fully named Mort Subite Kriek Traditionelle - though this is not 100% lambic and sweetened, contrary to their actual traditional kriek, called Mort Subite Oude Kriek. Light pink head, deep cherry red colour; sweet with sourish touch, lemon, ascorbic acid, elderberry aroma, cherry syrup, corn, red candy. Lambic complexity and woodiness is still noticeable, but in a very light and subtle way, as in their framboise or (sweetened) geuze.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
La mia preferita tra le kriek, dolce ma non troppo. Sia nel gusto che per l’aroma si sente fortissima la presenza delle ciliege.. Come bene il succo! Notevole!
