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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very carbonated and makes a nice creamy pink foam. Not to hoppy and very fruity. It is my first Kriek and I loved it.
Very drinkable and quite tasty. It is more on the sweet side then on the sour side making it more refreshing and faster drinking.
