2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottled) Hazy amberish red with a medium, pinkish, creamy and lacy head. Sourish aroma of vomit and cherries, which fades away in a while, leaving some cherry-raspberry aroma. Slightly sweet, quite dull cherry-wheaty flavor with some straw- and raspberries. Light to medium-bodied, neutral-sweetish palate with foamy carbonation. A quite tasteless and boring kriek - not a sugar bomb, but not tart and traditional, either.

Bottle of this at Waagstruk in Antwerp thought it was to sweet especially after having the Liefmanís Kriek on tap. Page 327 of Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide and only 313 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Plenty going on here. Strikingly clear, red-amber pour for a Kriek. Rocky suds and layers of lace. Distinctly vinegary, woody cherry sourness in the nose. Not at all perfumey. Opens with a definite note of peaty, whiskeyish malt graininess. Tingling cherry sharpness in the middle, with a drawn-out, sweetly biscuity afternose. The malt whiskeyish flavours are at least as assertive as the Lambic. Strange and unprecedented.

Iím not quite sure about this. Itís almost like drinking lemonade. Itís got nice sour cherrylike taste and a nice fizzy mouthfeel. But it kindof tastes like an alcopop doesnít it? The fact that itís a real brew ofcourse rises the score, because to speak the truth, itís not bad at all.
