COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

Ich kann nicht mal sagen, dass es ein schlechtes Bier ist, aber geschmacklich und beim Blick auf die Zutatenliste erinnert es eher an Kirschlimonaden-Radler. Echter Biergeschmack ist kaum vorhanden. Wenn es Kriek sein muss, dann doch besser ein traditionelles.

19/XII/15 - 25cl from ... (I don’t know, I was just happy to finally get my hands on it, seems to be rare in Belgium, everywhere it’s replaced with the "premium kriek") @ home - BB: I/2016 (2015-1734)

Clear copper red to rusty red brown beer, creamy aery off-white to dirty pinkish beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, cherry candy, bit funky, lemony touch. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, lots of cherry syrup, sourish touch as well, some real lambik funk underneath all that sweet violence. Aftertaste: lemony, candy, sugary, bit funky.

Icedwarf (1006) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
Donkerrood bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is fris zoetzuur en frutiig, kriek is dudielijk aanwezig en gen vreemde bijsmaak. Best goed.

Hopverdju (206) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Fel rode kleur met roze – rood schuim. Whauw, ziet er natuurlijk uit ;-) Geur: De geur van de rode snoepjes die wij poepkes noemen met een klein zuurtje. Smaak: zoet met veel kersen en klein zuurtje, maar niet genoeg om in balans te zijn. Oh ja, te serveren aan mensen die geen bier lusten maar graag vloeibare poepkes drinken met wat koolzuur.

Foerdifuxx (125) - Franconia, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2015
Clear ruby red beer with a pink, medium-sized, medium-lasting head. Aromas of cherry, bitter almond, yeast, must, heavy floral perfume (the ones your grandma uses) and powdered sugar. Medium sour in taste, wheat, cherry and floral hops, acidic, lots of almond in the finish, bit musty. Fizzy carbonation, light body, creamy texture. My first Kriek, unfortunately only 25cl.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at Winking Lizard. Pours red with a medium pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of cherries and yeast. Light-bodied with a mildly medicinal cherry character, with some yeast and malt in the background. The finish is fruity with a cherry syrup aftertaste. Average overall.

Couleur ambrée cerise, légère mousse. Nez de cerises fraiches et bonbon cerise. Gout de cerises un peu aigres. Bon corps. Ca passe.

Small bottle at home. Pours a clear ruby red, topped with a big fluffy pink white head. Settles down quite fast. Lovely cherry aroma, sweet with some dusty presence. Fruity taste, mildly sweet with a very fair soury cherry presence. Very nice, not too sweet and easily drinkable. Lovely.
