4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22nd Febuary 2008. Hmmm. My rating is going to stick out like a sore thumb - I will try and set the scene. This was drunk at the end of a very long beer day including an evening in the Kulminator sampling old dark and often bitter beers. This beer was a real fresh breeze and blew me away with itís intense cherry. Itís sharp but doesnít induce a wince. Fruity but not cloying. The cherry is somewhere between fresh cherry and morello cherry. Loved it!

Bottle from Cindireneís. Pours turbid ruby with fizzy off-pink head. Nose is tart cherry, earthy. Tastes of tart cherries, with a flavor that starts sweet and ends a bit tarter, and the last dregs arenít as sweet as the first half of the bottle. Went well with a few Hershey kisses.

Bottle from the back of the fridge thatís a year or two old. Drank side by side with Lindemanís. Cloudy dark red pour with a huge pink head. Sweet cherry aroma with a hint of tartness. Malty and sweet cherry flavor with some tartness in the finish. Lindemanís won this contest, but neither can touch Belgian Red.

bottle (vieux bruxelles) 25 cl, amber/dark red colour with pink head. Smell: cherries, sweetness and a bit unpleasant rust smell. Taste: far too sweet, cherries, a bit grainy and very boring. But for a beer from íthe aldií is it ok!

Sampled in Potsdamn. A pretty good Kriek but overall average compared to other Belgian styles. Still, bubbly and good solid flavors.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Botle, 25 cl, bought in the Aldi with the name "Vieux Bruxelles Kriek Lambic". If this beer I bought in the Aldi is indeed the same as this St Louis Kriek (itís indeed from the same brewery), than itís a whole difference with his "big brother" St Louis Premium. The beer looks red, with a little pink head. The smell is clearly the one of cherries and sugar, but a bit ímuffyí, unfresh. And so it goes with the taste: cherries and sugar. Thereís nothing bad with the taste, but itís sweet, too sweet for me and after a while an unnice aftertaste comes hanging in your mouth a bit. The sweet afterstaste also keeps hanging in your mouth for a while. But in the end: give me the Premium, because itís much better.
