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.

inbirraveritas (1494) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2010
0.25 l bottle. Dark red colour, off-white/pink medium head and lively carbonation. Cherry-liked and sweet nose, the taste is sweetsour and cherry-flavoured. Fruity and sourish, but unfortunately too much artifical, aroma of cherry with some citrus hops in the back, the finish is astringent. For me a mainly "plastic"-styled lambic with a light/medium body and a kinda thin texture.

Pours a deep ruby red with small white sudsy head. Aroma is cherry pie filling all the way. Taste is sweet red cherries balanced by a nice tart sourness. Not as complex as other kriek’s i’ve had but very enjoyable.

twindog (274) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Pours like a cherry apple juice with a light pink to off white head thats medium in size and fingers down the glass. Flavors of sour cherry pie with cream on top. A sweet to tart finish. Great as an after dinner drink.

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 it’s intense cherry. It’s sharp but doesn’t induce a wince. Fruity but not cloying. The cherry is somewhere between fresh cherry and morello cherry. Loved it!
