(Bottle 33 cl) Beerlovers around the world cried bitter tears when the new ownership of Rodenbach phased out the beloved "Alexander" cherry beer. But years later comes this new Kriek based on Rodenbach sour ale. And contradictory to the heap of stickingly sweet fruit beers that float the Belgian markets in recent years this is a decent Kriek for adults - in spite of the low alcohol. Pours a beautiful red, completely opaque with a small, fine reddish head. Pronounced acidic cherry aroma. Lovely cherry flavours with a distinct sourness again and typical notes of iron. A very decent beer and a pleasant surprise. 080805

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Pour is reddish brown with a light pink head...smell is fresh bing cherries and a hint of citric acid...taste is brightly sour with cherries and citric powder (like on sour candies)...some horseblanket in the finish...I don’t care for most Kriek flavor and generally don’t like cherries but this is actally mildly refreshing...under-rated...

This beer has a dark red body - hue apperance and a coarse light red scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is acid with a light cherries afther tast.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4973) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This was the first time I have ever encountered a beer by this brewer. Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer poured a dark brown color with red highlights and only a trace of a tan head. The aroma is sour and vaguely vinegar like. The favor is sour and has a mild vinegar element. There is a light malt undertone and a tangy zing in the sour finish. There are also light fruity undertones. Nice, but not my favorite in the style.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 (bottle) Dark & hazy red with a small red creamy head. Very strong aroma of sour cherries. The taste is also quite sour with cherries from the start to the finish. Not too sweet and therefore refreshing, but not to be compared with “real” Kriek Sour Ales from Belgium as for example Liefmans Kriek.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 It is a long time ago I had a kriek so I can’t remember. But this is not what I expected. It is not good. A bit Yakkie.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium dark red with a medium pink color head with average retention. Aroma of cherries is overpowering and mostly comprised of syrup but some classic Rodenbach sourness is also noticeable. Taste is at first very similar to some of the other Belgian syrupy beer around with a not so enjoyable chemical aftertaste but I did noticed that toward the ends there is some of the Rodenbach taste I have been accustomed to. Overall, I believe this to be a classic Rodenbach with some added chemical syrup which render the experience more or less enjoyable.
