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.

0,25l as Kriek Vieux Bruxelles, nice cherry aroma, dark red colour, with light white head, lightly bitter, lightly bitter, medium sweetness, no sourness at all, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, Im not much into Krieks but i think an average one, would appreciate bit souness and less sweetness

Small bottle at home. Pours a clear ruby red, topped with a big fluffy pink white head. Settles down quite fast. Lovely cherry aroma, sweet with some dusty presence. Fruity taste, mildly sweet with a very fair soury cherry presence. Very nice, not too sweet and easily drinkable. Lovely.

This fruit beer has a lovely dark crimson appearance, it is not exceptional, but the cherry almond aroma is pleasant, and the cherry palate is sweet but with some tartness in the finish, which makes this a pleasant lambic style kriek.

tricksta_p (2254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of sweet artificial cherry, vague wooden notes, sugar, sweetener. Flavour is sugary sweet and vaguely tart. Not my kind of Kriek.

Fatalne, zbyt slodkie, ulepkowate i chemiczne. Nienaturalny zapach i smak, kompletnie nieuczciwie zrobiony lambik

jamaty (1445) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Color cereza, burbujeante con dos de espuma coloreada en rojizo. Aroma frutal y sabor claramente marcado tambien por el 25% de cerezas que lleva en ella receta. Combina bien el dulce con el toque efervescente y ligeramente amargo final. No es mal ejemplo del estilo, aunque personalmente no me agrade

ShivanDragon (2480) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
Donkerrood met roze kraag, aroma van zure rode bessen en zoet. Smaken zoals verwacht enorm fruitig van de krieken, zuurtjes, aangezoet, framboos, tja deze is wel aardig maar niet bijzonder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huh, what happened. I drank both this beer and the Bruxelles Kriek Vieux. The last one has been aliased to this beer, but still both my ratings vanished... This is not the first time with this website, so it’s quite a pity when you find out which beer canished but also frustrating that my list is thus not 100% up to date, with the rateable beers that is. So I lost my ratings but I oh so good remember this beer. It is the sweet Fruit Lambic variant. Sweet is not bad per se, but it is with this beer... Not an interesting beer, obviously!
