3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] Pours a hazy reddish brown with a finger of pink head. Aroma is cherries, some slight funkiness, and a touch of malt. Flavor has quite a bit of tartness and sourness, with some cherry and currant flavors. Gets pretty abrasive as I drink it from the sourness and acidity. Very pleasant lambic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. From notes. Poured red with a pinkish medium nice looking head. Aroma was strong cherries. Taste is some sourness and lots of cherries. Nice carbonation. Pleasant mouthfeel. It is almost the same as the Mort Subite Framboise only the fruit as changed. Overall nice beer but not much complexity. Would maybe have been better is fruit was a little more subtile. Rating #65

25 cl bottle, bought in Oostende - shared with Roger. Not extremely red color, big pink head. Aroma is cherry, but not overkill, as in many other krieks. Flavor is cherry in a balanced and fine way. Smooth and fine malty finish.

The Kriek is a typical lambic beer brewed with cherries from Brussels.
Its very special. Its pours a reddish pink with a nice white head. Its aroma is strong with cherries. Its flavors are light alcohol sweet and sour cherries, but the taste goes very well together and is a very pleasant drink overall.

Red with a brief, white head.
Sweet cherry-like aroma with bitter cherry-seeds.
A bit too sweet and sugary, though still refreshing.
Some sourish notes aswell.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 330ml corked bottle. Very refreshing & so damn eazy to sink,but the late acidity reminds you though, you’re not drinking Cherry-Cola. . Its got some nice cherry flavour.Less generic than I’d assumed. But a bit sugary in the body. Could be more tart .If you love the crazy shit they produce at Cantillion you may dislike this kinda thing. .

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.
