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.

0.25 l bottle from somewhere. Deep red colour with some head. Aroma is cherries and taste is also... cherries. Maybe also some dough. I guess that could be wheat. This is a sweetened kriek with 15% of cherry something. There is also Stevia (sweetener) and some ascorbin acid.

Nonsenzio (57) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
Red brownish robe, very sweet and lemonady on the nose. Very sweet synthetic cherries on the tongue. Not my kind of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LazyPyro (479) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours a clear crimson colour with a small slightly pink head. Aroma is very much cherry, although a bit artificial, still nice though, donít detect much of anything else. Flavour is also strongly of cherry, very sweet like a syrup, a bit of malt, some sourness in the finish. Not too tart. A nice drink.

McSherman (490) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016
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.

tderoeck (7877) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2016
19/XII/15 - 25cl from ... (I donít know, I was just happy to finally get my hands on it, seems to be rare in Belgium, everywhere itís 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 (1185) - 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.
