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.

Extremer Kirschsirupgeruch. Dann kaum süß im Antrunk, aber extrem fruchtig. Schöner Brettbeigeschmack. Den Süßstoff hätte man ganz streichen können.

doesnt taste like kriek/lambic. For the style its pretty horrible, however if i think back to my youth its a pretty damn tasty malt beverage. slightly too sweet, cherry juice with a manichewitz(sp?) after taste.

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.

kermis (4256) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2014
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 (1904) - 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!
Test vom 11.5.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,3,10,2,12,5 - 6,05

Jamedra (383) - 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
