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.

Alone at home. Clear dark red colored beer with medium pinkish head and medium carbonation. Full cherry fruity aroma with some sour hints. Medium slight sparkling palate. Taste is fruity cherry ending more sour.

Bottle at Huppel the pub. Pours clear red brown with a small light pink head. Aroma of sweet cherries. Flavour is moderate sweet, artificial cherries, no sourness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty much what I expected.

Erzengel (2560) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Schon im Glas riecht es total nach süß-künstlicher Kirschbrause - total klebrig. Der Antrunk ist süß-klebrig, der Hauptteil wird nur noch etwas künstlicher. Der Nachgeschmack ist ganz entfernt sauer und wird ziemlich schnell laff, dabei immer noch süß-klebrig.
--> schön süße, ganz leicht erfrischende Kirschlimonade - aber für ein Bier auf voller Linie durchgefallen!

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 5, 2013
Láhev 250 ml. Vieux Bruxelles varianta. Aroma je silně znát po mladých třešních. Pěna je lehce narůžovělé barvy, jemná, nízká a rychle mizící. Barva piva je měděná a lehce zbarvená do rubínova. Chuť má ve středu výrazný nádech třešní, finiš je sladký, jemný a príjemný. Vcelku se jednou o chutný a dobře pitelný ovocný lambic.

Fairly typical kriek beer, taste is musty and of sour cherries, still one of my favourite beer styles

Its simple to say: good aroma and lambic aftertaste, but way over-sweetened, its like sugar with juice.

Definitely a novelty beer for me. Little sweet cheery taste but not fully developed. Not offensive but not so moreish either although it might be best described as unformed and diluted with a slight tang. Now I have tried it I would not rush to it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thanatosti (904) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2013
25 cl. bottle @ home, gift from my neighbours. ABV is 4% Reddish with a light-pink head. Aroma of sweer cherries. Taste is mostly sweet cherries, almost no lambic sourness but it still isn’t bad. Just a (semi)-decent kriek.

Nose of sweet cherries, pinkish color with a tiny head. Horrible sweetness, chemical sweetness with a bit of cherry thrown in. It does nothing for me. I’ve been spoiled recently travelling around Belgium, drinking kriek from Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Boon and the like. But this stuff is mass produced artificial sweetened truly awful stuff.
