14/VIII/15 - 25cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: XI/2015 (2015-1052)
Note: when even my sister in law thinks it’s too sweet, you know it’s gonna be bad...
Clear red brown beer, small creamy irregular light pink head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet and sugary, cherry candy, bit lemony. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sugar, cherry candy, lemony sourness. Aftertaste: very sugary, sourish touch, candy, cherry syrup, nothing else, yet almost acidic enough to be drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet cherry beer based on Pax Pils - in fact, except from something similar made in Germany, this is the only ’kriek’ I know of which is based on a ’pils’. Bright red with thin pink head, very sweet, cloying, fruit candy, grenadine. Needless to say, nothing of the basic beer is noticeable. Not for my taste at all but I must admit it has a certain ’old school’ flair I can sympathize with.
