3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours clear red with a thick pink head. Aroma of massive cherries, a little tart but mostly cherry drop sweets and the slightest touch of funk in a dusty public toilet way. Flavor is fairly heavy sweet with any acidity unfortunately hidden. Mouthfeel is reminiscent of when they put a tooth in a glass of cola overnight at school to warn us what it does to your teeth. Hmm, I guess that lesson stuck. Over light bodied with light carbonation.

12.7oz bottle. Pours reddish purple with minimal head. Smells of tart cherries. Taste of sour cherries but not as sour or tart as I would like. Nice finish...decent beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
When AB InBev introduced their Belle-Vue Kriek Extra years ago, it came as no surprise that other commercially oriented lambic producers tried the same thing, and Van Honsebrouck - which has a history of jumping on every beer trend which sticks up its head - did the same thing: they created this even more sweet and syrupy, lighter, summery version of their St.-Louis Kriek. I don’t even like the original version, so I won’t bother giving further comment about this cloying summer drink. Approach this not as a beer and certainly not as a lambic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a dark reddish purple color with a small off white head. The aroma has sweet and tart cherry character with a mild earthy note. The taste is sweet cherries with a lightly tart cherry finish and a hint of earthiness throughout. Light bodied and refreshing. This is pretty much a fruit beer, no tart/sour/funky character you would expect in a lambic.
