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.

50belair (3204) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 Bottle at Brother Tuckers. Big cherry nose. What a fantastic surprise. Crisp and sweet with big cherry flavors. it’s the kinda beer you might only have one or two of because of the sweetness, but still rally good stuff. Can you say "PANTY DROPPER"?

oldrtybastrd (4337) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2016
Pours a deep red with aromas of sour, light cherries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Cherries seeped through enough and it was smoothe and easy.

minutemat (3609) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Hondeghem, Belgium. Pours vivid reddish pink, small bubbly pinkish white head. Aroma is artificial cherries. Taste continues with a chemical sweetness and no real tartness expected of a lambic. Very light.

thellgren (672) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2016
0.25 l bottle from somewhere. Deep red colour with some head. Aroma is cherries and taste is also... cherries. Maybe also some dough. I guess that could be wheat. This is a sweetened kriek with 15% of cherry something. There is also Stevia (sweetener) and some ascorbin acid.

Nonsenzio (57) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
Red brownish robe, very sweet and lemonady on the nose. Very sweet synthetic cherries on the tongue. Not my kind of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LazyPyro (331) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours a clear crimson colour with a small slightly pink head. Aroma is very much cherry, although a bit artificial, still nice though, don’t detect much of anything else. Flavour is also strongly of cherry, very sweet like a syrup, a bit of malt, some sourness in the finish. Not too tart. A nice drink.

McSherman (460) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016
Ich kann nicht mal sagen, dass es ein schlechtes Bier ist, aber geschmacklich und beim Blick auf die Zutatenliste erinnert es eher an Kirschlimonaden-Radler. Echter Biergeschmack ist kaum vorhanden. Wenn es Kriek sein muss, dann doch besser ein traditionelles.
