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.

0,25L bottle, BB 01.2016. Pours red with pink head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is cherries, some sweetness. Flavor is sour and sweet, cherries. Overall: very easy to drink, like cherry lemonade.

Kauge (154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Nõmme Comarket (€ 3,29), July 2014. Pours a deep ruby red with a pinkish head that retains rather well, leaving some lacing. Aroma is gentle cherry yoghurt, more on the sour side than sweet; not as intense as I’d have expected. Taste is more straightforwardly sweet, even sugary, artificial cherry (like the cheap-ass cherry ’ciders’ they sell in stores), sour. Palate is icky-sticky with a rather soft mouthfeel, medium body and low to medium carbonation. Dry, sugary finish with some tart prickling in the throat. Overall... rather like lemonade.

tmongoose (1312) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2014
bomber shared. poured a pinkish color with white short lived head. the aroma straight up is cherries. sweet and syrupy. the flavor is more of the same. very nice cherry flavor a tad to sweet but still good. nice drink on a hot summer night. no real tartness in this one.

JefVerstraete (1378) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
Red colour, pink foam. Very sweet Kriek. Aroma of sweet red fruit with lots of sugar. Taste like fluid candy. Good as lemonade, not as beer.

Hansen (6686) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Cherry red coloured and with a pink head. Sweet cherry aroma, faint almond too. Flavor starts sweet, light astringent and faint bitter finish. More cherries. Creamy texture.
