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.

On tap. Red beer, pink head. Very sweet smell of cherries, just a little musty. Taste is very sweet, cherries, a little sourness/acidity in the finish. A bit too sweet for me.

I’m not a huge fan of fruiting my beer. This beer has the aroma of staight cheries out of the jar. It looks like cranbeery juice whe poured and has a very sweet flavor. Normally I wouldn’t drnk and I’m sure it will give me a nasty hangover.

St Louis Kriek Lambic, 4.0%, 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and deep imperial red with a lacing pink head. Dense cherry aroma, sulphorish and lending towards almonds. Flavour is sweet and acidic, intense cherry flavour. Holds a mild sulphorish dryness. Goes from sweet to acidic/citric into dry and sulphorish finish.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Draft at the Ginger man. Oh man no one seems to like this one. Pours a red ruby body with a tin head. Sweet cherries all the way and very sweet. Very drinkable but only 4.5%. I enjoyed this quite a bit but not as much as in comparison to mixing it with chelsea cream stout.

On the tap in Lantern in Mestreech. Nice Red colour with soft reddish thin head cherry nose.( we still call it a beer ?!?!?!) Aroma is like cherrypie. Bitterness of the beer only appears at the first snip as flavour appears. Nicely composed limonade, very drinkable.

LinusStick (2954) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Thanks, Mr Stitch for grabbing this for me! Falls on the sweet girly side of fruit lambic. Aroma was nice. Strong cherry Jolly Rancher. Pour was a nice murky amber/light red with no head. Taste was like cherry pop. No alcohol detectable. After the swallow the sweet cherry flavor turns to tart and bites the side of the tongue. Nice novelty beer.

TaxiDriver (1487) - Stadland, GERMANY - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Very fruity (cherries) and sweet. No head, dark red body. Light sweet start, then it gets light acidic, short duration. Light body, very dry texture, fizzy carbonation and a light astringent finish. Nice Kriek.
