this new cherrieflavoured beer biy the rodenbachbrwery is not bad at all. It’s very commercial because it’s well designed, well balanced in sweetness and sourness, and not siruppy at all. Not the best "kriek" I know of, but acceptable.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Bottled. Hazy dark red, small pink head. Ripe cherry aroma. Sweet and lightly balsamic with only a light tuch of acidity. Refreshing, but I would certainly like to have it drier.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
(Bottled) Nice, deep red color with small head. Quite clean and fresh, pleasant cherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor with some sourness and sticky, sugary finish. Medium-bodied palate with low carbonation and well-balanced sweetness/sourness. A balanced, fruity and refreshing brew.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2004
Hazy red with pink head. Cherries (cherry-sauce!), sweet, bubblegum, light tartness. Pleasent, but i would prefer less candy and more ale...

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 Murky, deep red body. Mostly diminsihing, fizzy, pink head. Virtually no lace. Nose of white Mosel-wine (a sweet, German wine-variety) and cherries. Moderately sweet and moderately acidic initial flavour. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic finish (averagily long). Light bodied. Fizzy carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 Bottled (BB 05/2005)
What a suprise to find this one from the local grocery store, never thought that I will buy my first Flemish sour ale from there.
Bright ruby color with small but steady reddish head. Skunky rubbery aroma with notes of sweet cherry. Carbonated mouthfeel, sugary cherry and crisp lingonberry flavor with a nice sourish finish. (3/4/7/4/13 3.1)
Re-rate: upped aroma points, second bottled had much cleaner aroma. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 10, 2004
cloudy red-amber colour with a fine pinky head, cherry juice aroma with light notes of vinegar, medium-bodied, sweet with a modest hint of acidity, long and quite heavy sugary cherryish finish - a drink for children and people who don’t like beer; a bad idea from Palm

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2004
This beer is exaclty what it’s pretending to be. Rodenbach Classic with addition of 25% krieken. Very cloudy dark red color with a dark pink head. Aroma of cherry, some marzipan, bit spicy. Taste is moderately sweet and lightly sour. Sticky palate.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2004
Cloudy dark red coloured, initially big and mostly lasting head. Sweet aroma of krieken. The flavour isn’t even as terrible as i thought it would be, there’s actually still some Rodenbach character in this one. Nevertheless there’s this artificial cherry flavour that is a bit annoying. But still, served cold on a hot day i could actually more of these i think.

(A score of years ago, Palm shook up the world of beer, and also a number of people never before considered as beergeeks, by terminating the - by me - unlamented Alexander. The protests never made much sense to me, as I always considered Alexander a devious way to ruin perfectly good Rodenbach Grand Cru. On the opposite, the defence of Palm, claiming that Alexander was anything but traditional, made all the sense in the world. As if to prove the limitlessness of my naiveté, and of their own hypocrisy, here’s Redbach; ordinary - sorry, *classic* - Rodenbach diluted with cherry juice to a childrens’ drink of 3.5%...) Dark purple beer; dense pink-cyclamen head, leaving fine lace. Concentrated cherry juice in the nose, cherry sweets for the very young, ending a bit woody. For a short time, an unspeakable flavour, reminiscent of the aromas wafting form an opened sack of dried dog food. Thank God, it turns quickly to sweet cherrydrops flavour. Truth to tell, the finish is even tart-fruity, even more acidic than ordinary Rodenbach. The acidity lightens the texture, whilst the unfermented fruitwhatevers enhance it. Quite some dry-out effect. It is much less horrible than I expected, and I would even endorse it, but for the artificial smell, the first taste impression, and, as said, the limitless hypocrisy of the parent company. I think the Google ad about "Cherry Concentrate" which joined itself to this page, was the most apt comment imaginable.
