2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Belgium shared with Drewbeerme. Amber with red tint with large white head. Aroma is yeast, sweet cherry (almost soda/coolaid like) and grainy. Flavor is sweet cheery once again and kind of fake tasting. Medium body and well carbonated. This might have been good originally but now is a very poor example of the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. thanks to xnoxhatex for the sample. Pours an odd amber-copper color with off white head. Nose is interesting yeast, old, musty, some odd artifical cherry aroma. Flavor is much of the same, flavor is sweet but not overly so, cherry notes are faint and fake tasting, a pretty bad mess of flavors with nothing dominating. Blah. 2.8.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl Bottle. Colour is red/pink and has a very nice white head. Aroma is pure sweetness with cherrish dominating. In the tate is sweet cherrish and sourness. A very good sample of the Kriek.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Contém os elementos característicos de uma Lambic (avinagrada e salgada), mas no paladar revela-se doce e agradável. Lembra a Cantillon, só que com açúcar.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Very sweet smell of cherrys. Red clear body, large pink coloured foamy head, mostly lasting. Very acetic start, light bitter finish, short duration. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Moderate astringent finish.
Not bad, but there are better ones.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 Medium red-orange hue, crystal clear, with a short, foamy, light white-pink head. Big, sugary cherry aroma; something like overly sweetened cherry pie, I suppose. Tannic, oaky elements lie very far underneath. Slight breadiness as well. Simple, nothing a foul. Sweet cherry flavour throughout, very little tartness. Grainy, watery at the finish. Aftertaste of cherries sticks to the front of my mouth. Medium bodied, sticky texture, moderate carbonation. Extremely simple, but not really flawed in any manner. Enjoyable for what it is, I suppose, about average on the whole. 37.5cl bottle, Leffe goblet, bbe 04/09.

Very fruity, sweet aroma and taste. Body was bold red color with just off-white head. Very carbonated mouthfeel. Good cherry flavor - sweeter than other krieks I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish pink with a pink head & nice lacings. Sweet cheerry aroma and taste. Fresh mouthfeel. Went great with our ice cream dessert! Medium to low carbonation. Perhaps needs some extra sour cherries, but enjoyable!
