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.

KimJohansen (10406) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Clear red with a tiny white and pinkish head. Sweet aroma with cherries and almonds. Flavour was sweet with cherries, almonds and a fairly tart cherry finish. Not bad and quite refreshing.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2009
25cl bottle. Dark juicy ruby, big foaming pink head. Sweet candy cherry aroma, little wheat, sweeteners and rose water. Totally over sweetened flavor, candy drop cherries, dr. pepper, kinda empty finish, a tad stuffy even. Light spritzy feeling near the end. Light to medium bodied, strong soft carbonation. Drinkable for what it is.

deyholla (9259) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark red with a pink head. The aroma reminded me of cough syrup, not pleasant. The flavor surprised me a bit after the poor aroma. It has some tartness, but was a bit too sweet for me.

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2009
Nice ruby colored body with a medium pink head. The sourish cherries dominate the aroma, some light lambic character. Medium body with the fruity cherry taste, some sourish-tart lambic flavor. It was delicious, i expected a lower quality.

patrick767 (3824) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2009
bottle - Pours clear red with a one finger pink head. It has an intense cherry aroma thatís actually really nice. The flavor isnít quite as strong as the aroma, but itís still all about the cherries. Itís very sweet with no noticeable lambic funk in the smell or taste. I got just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Itís lively on the palate and light bodied.

thewolf (11727) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 23, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ambrosetti, Berlin.
Pours deep, dark red with a medium, fizzy, pink head. Sweet and lightly artificial cherry aroma with quite some almonds. Medium carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour is lighly tart, some sweet cherries and a fair amount of caramel in the finish. Drinkable after vacuuming!

TEJA (1917) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2009
25 Cl bottle at Slija Line. Nice sherry color with a firm lasting foam. The cherrie aroma is very similar to the one in Coca cola cherry and artificial. Small sour taste were the artificial cherrys also are present. Also asome residual sweetness. Not one of the better krieks Iíve tried.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2009
375ml Bottle. Pours hazy maroon with a half finger pink head. The nose is maraschino cherries and cherry jolly ranchers. The taste is cherry soda and cherry flavored cough drops. Light prickly mouthfeel. Way to sugary sweet. I think Iím going into a diabetic comaÖ
