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.

(HU) Kellemes ital. Átlagos üvegben szép színű, nagyon illatos nedű. Alig érződik a sör jellege, bár itatja magát.

JulienHuxley (3423) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Bier Temple. Deep red pour with persistent white head. Aroma is syrupy, light medicinal notes, really fruity/sweet. Taste is syrupy, sticky sweet, artificial cherry, stronger aspartame than usual, lots of diet soda flavors. Palate is light-med bodied with med carbonation. Meh.

tom10101 (3062) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Clear red/pinkish with a small mostly lasting pink head. Aroma is of sweet cherries and not much else. Taste is about the same. The sweetness isn,t cloying tough. Very little acidity. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sweet finish. A tad medicinal. The Premium Kriek is better. That’s a very poor fruit juice.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle in The Macc, Macclesfield. Pours a red colour with a very small thin head. Obviously cherries in aroma and flavour, some sweetness and tartiness in there but it becomes quite creamy and mellow the more you have. Therefore, quite drinkable and ok all round.

moshr00m (15) - SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2014
Deep red colour that goes brownish on the edges. Pink head. Tipical cherry aroma. Bit more agressive acidity. That is mainly it. Nice kriek, doesn’t come across artificial like some. But not the best I had.

ruigo (1240) - PORTUGAL - APR 19, 2014
25cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Pours a clear red colour with a pinkish lacing. Aroma is sweet cherries and bubblegum. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is more sweet than bitter with some sour notes. Overall, a beer that resembles a soda drink.

gueuze (413) - - APR 7, 2014
Extremer Kirschsirupgeruch. Dann kaum süß im Antrunk, aber extrem fruchtig. Schöner Brettbeigeschmack. Den Süßstoff hätte man ganz streichen können.

Cuso (5039) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Clear light ruby color with small head. Aroma of ripe sour cherries. Taste of cherries, cherry stones, some strange aftertaste in finish.
