2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells exactly like a Luedenís cough drop. Has a very sour cherry taste. Little aftertaste and the initial swig has the same taste every time.

Beautiful red color, very little head. Tasted sour and was flat. Huge cherry presence in the aroma and taste. Iím not a fan of cherry, but this was good.

Bottle. Was hoping for something tart and a bit funky and sour. It was little of all three, but it had a bit of a flabby sweetness, some oak and cheery, pleasant.

Why is this being rated as a Fruit Beer? The name says Kriek. The description says Lambic. The word I like best in the description is "Alchemy". Bottom line, Great beer is like turning straw into gold just like Rumplestilkskin did. The modern Alchemy of our time. Just donít call this a fruit beer. Not much head to this one. Sweet, sour, vinegary all at the same time. Vinegar isnít part of a Fruit beer!!! I like this, another acquisition courtesy of my friendly grocer. Looks like the Raspberry Vinagrette I eat with my salads. The exception, this doesnít taste like a salad dressing. Its a very well brewed Beer!!! It should be classified as a Lambic. We really need to get this classification system worked out. This is a Lambic not a fruit beer. Anyway, if you havenít had one you should.

I tasted this beer on tap the day at the Falling Rock during GABF í03 and I thought it was too sweet. I still think it is too sweet but I can taste more sour from the blend of lambic and fruit. Smells great. Looks very cherry and clear. Not a lambic but a good after dinner beer.

Bright red with a thin pink head. Deep sour cherry aroma and taste. Ends acidic and tart. Watery body. A nice introduction to krieks for someone that has never had one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours the color of the flesh of a blood-orange. A nice soft off-white head that laces exceptionally well with very lively carbonation. Aroma is sweet cherries with some cough syrup hints. Flavor is not as sweet or sour as the nose let on. More of a dry cherry cola flavor. I think itís quite refreshing actually. Body is a little thin with a short dry finish. This shares qualities of a mead. I really liked this.

Deep red color, soft carbonotion, no head. Intens cheery nose - sweet. The Flavor though is not sweet. More a sour cherry - natural taste and very pleasant. Light acidic bitter kick with a short finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a red color with a reddish white head. The taste was that of cherry but it quickly diminished with not much of an aftertaste. Worth trying and a unique beer to say the least.
