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.

Bottle as Vieux Bruxelles Kriek. Red colour, light pink foam. Sweet aroma of candy, sweet cherry’s and sugar/sweeteners. Light sour taste. Almost no notes of lambic. No beer but limonade.

Cherry red lambic with a brief pink head. Smells like canned cherries - sweet and a little artificial. Taste is a lot less sweet than in Lindeman?s kriek which is too sweet. Sweetness in this one is much mire tolerable. There is also less tartness. Carbonation is medium. This one is ok but still kinda like drinking a sweet cherry soda.

Nicht zu süß, nicht zu sauer, fruchtig erfrischend mit einer leicht roten Farbe. Super leckeres Kriek. Gerne wieder!

Bottle. Clear brown-red color, small to no white head. Aromas of fresh cherries, cake and a bit yeast. Taste is rather dry, abrupt bitterness. Fizzy carbonation, watery texture. Malty, but not very distinctive, less to no taste of cherries. I expected more from this one, the lack of cherry taste is a bit disgusting.

Oh holdes Reinheitsgebot! Ja ein Kirschbier muß ich wenn ich doch in der Nähe von Belgien bin mal probieren. St. Louis Kriek Lambic kommt in einer kleinen mit Kirschen beschmückten Flasche daher. Das Bier riecht süsslich nach Kirschen und ein Hauch künstlich. Ganz ganz leichte Noten von Würze sind erkennbar im Aroma und beim Geruch merkt man schon den Kohlensäurensprudel. Die Optik ist schön, das Bier ist rötlich und so wie man wohl die Gattung vorstellt. Antrunk ist erfrischend trotz des leicht süssölichen Geschmacks. Es schmeckt mir - die Vorstellung eines Kirschbiers entspricht meinen Vorstellung. Man erkennt es ist Bier aber nicht i.S. eine Radlers. Es funktioniert bedingt die Kombination von Kernfrucht und Bier. Körper und Abgang sind einheitlich zum Einstieg, Abgang und beim Aufstossen (dies ist Kohlensäurig) betont mehr das Bierige, das süssliche flacht in malzartiges ab. Fazit: Gelunges Fruchtbier, was man trinken kann und nicht so so Süß ist wie manch einer sich dies vorstellt. Wer keine Kirsche mag, wird in der Tat dieses Bier nicht mögen.

Nice ruby color with small pink head. Sweet cherries, cassis, light yoghurt and a hint of lambic character. Light bodied and very sweet almost like a soda but quite.

Bottle, 6C. Red with an off white head that fades quickly. Aroma of cherries and marzipan. Sweet with a little funk if you squint a bit. Quite nutty, cherries and apricots, finish leans a little towards dry. Pleasant enough and avoids the children’s medicine character of some of this sort of thing.

Sweet cherry beer, but it has a faint sourness in the body, a distant memory of the lambic.
