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.

Bottle @ de Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with big pink head that won´t last. Aroma of alcohol,cherry vine, bubble gum sweetness. Taste of sweet cherrys with pleasantly sour aftertaste. Reminds me some cherry limonade. Good one.

Drinking from a 25 cl bottle. A nice, sweet cherry smell. The clear ruby beer has a small brown head. A cherry taste, sweet but also some bitter. Low carbonated.

Een kriek die mij niet echt kon overtuigen, dan zijn er betere te vinden in België

chirolante (11) - ITALY - AUG 16, 2014
Non si tratta di una "vera" kriek, in quanto contiene edulcoranti che la rendono particolarmente dolce (un’eresia per gli intenditori) Detto questo a me piace molto, ho apprezzato in particolare la forte persistenza delle ciliege... sembrava davvero che ci fossero intere nella bottiglia (sia come sapore che come profumo). Bassissima gradazione alcolica.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is red fruits and cherry, quite artificial. Flavour is light tangy red fruits, a bit watery but seems less fake then the 3.2 procent.

Dark cherry on the eye, strong pink head - fizzy though. Prnounced cherry on the nose. Sweet cherry on the tongue with some cellar-y notes. Sour-sweet finish. I’d like a bit more of the lambic and bit less of the cherry.

Bottle at home. Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet cherries, with a hint of sour in the background. Taste is sweet cherries, little bit sour in the aftertaste, but mostly overwhelming sweet cherries.

Bottle from Det Bette Ølhus. Clear reddish brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet cherries, heavy marzipan and vanilla essence. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. On a hot summer day this is actually drinkable. 270714

JefVerstraete (1592) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle as Vieux Bruxelles Kriek. Red colour, light pink foam. Sweet aroma of candy, sweet cherry’s and sugar/sweeteners. Light sour taste. Almost no notes of lambic. No beer but limonade.

BitchPls (591) - FINLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Cherry red lambic with a brief pink head. Smells like canned cherries - sweet and a little artificial. Taste is a lot less sweet than in Lindeman?s kriek which is too sweet. Sweetness in this one is much mire tolerable. There is also less tartness. Carbonation is medium. This one is ok but still kinda like drinking a sweet cherry soda.
