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.

DenverLogan (893) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Aroma of artificially sweet, maraschino cherry syrup. Raspberry brown color; nice lingering head. Tastes like a very sweet cherry soda. Almost an artificial sweetner flavor. On the bottle it says "Belgian ale brewed with cherries, lambic spontaneous fermentation." I’m not tasting any significant Brett or funk...there is some sourness to it, but it’s sweeter than a Flemish Red like the Duchesse de Bourgogne or Monks Sour. Despite the somewhat cloying sweetness there is some sourness, like those little round red sour cherry candies. It’s super sweet, cloying, seemingly artificial cherry flavored with Jolly Rancher apple candy notes, but, I can see how some would enjoy this. Certainly not an Oud Beersel, Boon, Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen which are more authentically sour, funky and distinct.

Nice red color and pink head. The aroma has clear notes of cherries and the nut in the stone of cherries, and this is found in the flavour too. It’s sweetish with nice acidic counterweight. A nice one.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Pours pomegranite crimson w/ a shallow froth. Aromas of fresh, yeasty cherries. Light to medium nectar w/ ample carbonation. Fleshy cherries, spice, and bread. Theres a moderate tart component. The finish is long w/ tart cherry overtones.

Red colour, generous pink head. Aroma has lots of cherries, a bit dusty and earthy. Flavour is mostly cherry and raspberry, some sourness, but finishing very sweet.

[Sampled with Adenila in brothers hood and in La Roche.] Wonderful, I like it. The ladies swallowed it a lot in La Roche at the hotels lawn after the race. Like a normal kriek, but some almonds essens makes the taste too sugary.

Adenila (1558) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2007
Lovely krik. Perfect deep red look with a nice pink head. The head didnt stay for long though. Aroma of cherrysauce mixed with white suger. Flavor wasnt as acidic as i like it, but still pretty decent and definetly refreshing.

Eructoblaster (3397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle - 250ml. Hazy ruby body with low carbonation and a fading pink foamy head. One-dimension candylike cherry aroma and taste. It ends with a decent sweet/sour finish. This is refreshing and anjoyable, but it definitely lacks conformity with the Lambic style.
