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.

denaldi version of this ( called vieux bruxelles ) wich has a funy little bottleshape . a bit alikle the duvel-kind, but in a smaller size... pours pretty dark red. small , fast fading white head smell is pure cherry, bit sweetened , artificial for sure ! soft carbo . not complex at all. pure cherrys. for my taste just onto that borderline of to much . artificial. its sweet, but it istn pure syrup like lindemans... its doable

On draft/keg. Mmmmmm. I donít care if itís a commercial product I like it. Full of cherry flavour but not too sour. Refreshing. Fruity.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle, Dining Bar Okinawa: poured dark red with a light pink head. Cherries of course dominate this beer. Very sweet as is typical with St. Louis lambics. I liked it as a follow up to an Orval.

tmrmwel (756) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours red with a massive head. Aroma is very sweet and cherry-like, with sugar and succades. Flavour is likewise sweet with a sugary cherry almost reminiscent of artificial sweetened fruit juice. Not actually bad, but far from the usual nice and fresh lambic sourness.

0,25 liter flesje @home. Ik dronk de Vieux Bruxelles Kriek Lambic. Maar deze staat ook bekend onder de naam St.Louis Kriek. Best lekker verfrissend biertje.

DCLawyer (1312) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2013
Pours a light red with small pink head. Very sweet berries and cherries, with some tartness to keep from being too cloying. OK, but about 3 ounces is enough.

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark red, clear liquid with pink, frothy head. Aroma is cherries with cough sirup with a touch of yeasts. Sour cherries in taste, also some sweetness. Beer is very light, sticky textured, very fizzy carbonation. Short sour finish. Not a best lambic, but definetly not a worst, solid middleground in this category.

Unclear red, off white head with a little pink tint. Taste and aroma rather sweet cherries, a bit artificial and clearly sweetened.
