LIght red, bubbly with medium pink creamy head. Arome not so strong cherry as traditional Mort Subite Kriek has, taste aslo is less chery and much more sweet. Even bit too sweet maybe. Meanwhile some lembic notes are still presented on the backgraound.

Bottle - Pours a clear pink with a fizzy head. Strong, sweet cherry aroma, reminds of those red #2 cherries back in the day. Tastes like a carbonated cherry cola. It can be refreshing on warm day, but just too sweet for me.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 250ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: The red color and the rose head gives a nice aspect to it. Reasonable retention and many lacings left around.
S: Sweet and syrupy in the nose. Strong notes of cherry. Like a candy.
T: Tastes like cherry juice. Sweet and syrupy. Light tartiness hidden by the sweetness.
M: Very light body and medium and fizzy carbonation. Cheery juice aftertaste.
O: Low drinkability. Too sweet and syrupy.

BOTTLE 25 CL.
Look: clear ruby/cherry colored, big pale rose creamy head with good retention.
Aroma sweet cherry syrup, a touch of funk / green fruit seeds.
Taste: very sweet, cherry sweetness, balance by rather strong acidity, no much lambic character.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Also tasted under its original name Louwaege’s Kriek; apparently the name Louwaege has lost its effect now that this brewery has ceased to exist for many years, so the Heineken managers decided to use the name of Alken-Maes’ lambic brewery for it. The content hasn’t changed much: a syrupy, sickly sweet, one-dimensional and sugary, artificial, lemonade-like, light ’summer kriek’ only suitable for people who don’t like real beer, or real fruit. Lambic is hardly noticeable in this type of products - if not totally unnoticeable.

Een beter kriekenbier dan de gewone kriek van hen vind ik. Iets zoeter, zoals ik het lekker vind
