Draught @ La Mort Subite. Average creamy red head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a red colour. Good display of lacework. Aroma was cookie dough, marzipan, cherry, apple and hint of pear and light citrus notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and a creamy texture. Moderated sweet cherry flavour with some acidic. Sweet marzipan and cherry finish. Lovely Kriek.

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 Liefman’s Kriek on tap. Page 327 of Michael Jackson’s 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.
