3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very clear burgundy to faintly brown colour with a thin barely off white head. Nose is cherries and some funk. It was not really apparent in the framboise, but it is a little bit here. There is also a little bit of spiciness there. Flavour is initially strong sour cherries, but fades quite quickly to a very smooth brown sugar to molasses kind of flavour. There might be a bit of flowery hops there maybe, but if there is, it is barely just a hint. There is a bit of the spiciness in the finish as well. In the mouth it kind of feels like underdiluted kool-aid or something, almost powdery and dry, but not over poweringly sweet. Not really syrupy but not quite like water.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours pink with a white head. Nose is sweet. Body is too watery for a kriek. Unbalanced in lack of bitterness and also lacking in aroma. Only hints of cassis and cherries.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

Pours a pinkish reddish color. Aromas of cherries, almonds. Flavor is a subdued tart cherry taste, not a big as I expected. Medium bodied with a slight tart mouthfeel. This is a great beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (in NZ), pours a pinkish red with a large fluffy off white head and plenty of carbonation. Note of sweet cherries and butter, with a final sourness. A creamy palate, with only a moderate dryness after the swallow, when the cherries come through a little more. A little too sweet for me on the tongue and lacks the sourness of a good lambic.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Clear red with huge light pink head. Little aroma, mainly cherries. Light body, well carbonated. Flavour is obviously cherries, but well balanced with lambic. Not subtle, but not over the top like many krieks. A very nice kriek / fruit lambic; well balanced and drinkable.
