lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, - AUG 2, 2005
Intens cherry red color with fluffy diminishing pink froth. Aroma is that of fruit flavoured candies and red berry-jam. Taste is smooth and has a good balance between sweet and sour. The fruity part is to artificial and reminds me to much at sour candies. The liveyness is good and the consitancy to sirupy. For free with the newspaper today. From a cann 25 cl.

nearbeer (3840) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2014
375 ml. bottled 2013/01/09. Pours a clear, red-copper with a lasting film of pink cream on top. Nose is syrupy - lightly tart cherries cooked in brown sugar and cream. Taste is the same mix plus some earthy apples and a slight wooden bitterness. Light-medium body is to the sweet side and has a high level of carbonation that tends to remain pleasantly smooth. Not much lambic going on, but a decent fruit beer if you like cherries.

rayaron (339) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle 250ml. A bit hazy nice red with slightly pinkish small head. Very strong sweet (not so fresh) cherry aroma, a bit plastic. Very sweet cherry flavor, somewhat artificial, syrupy, sweet dry finish. Light carbonation, light-bodied. Cherry juice with some alcohol.

kermis (5694) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2014
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.

thomashall (159) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2014
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.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
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.

alexsdad06 (5866) - Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2014
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.

martjoobolut (934) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2014
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.

Beertobealive (298) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle at "la Braconne" Lacanau. Very short white head. Bitter and dry sherry aromas. Your noise also gets the sweetener. Ruby colored body. Light Taste of light sherry.
