St. Louis Premium Kriek is a kriekenbier, or cherry beer, made on a lambic base. A quarter of St. Louis Premium Kriek is the juice of Obacinska krieken cherries that have been steeped in gueuze for six months. It also has a smaller proportion of St. Louis Kriek Fond Tradition. This beer is a thirst-quencher with a low alcohol content and, in the nose, overwhelmingly sweet aromas of krieken cherries. Itís very fruity with a hint of sourness and slight touches of almond coming from the krieken cherry stones.

Tesco Finest bottling. Delicous cherry flavours, nice acidic bite giving a clean refreshing edge, lowish abv but has good body and a lingering finish, nice!

GoufCustom (1619) - HONG KONG - SEP 9, 2016

250ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear cherry red colour with no yeast sediments; Less than one quarter finger head with residual soapy off-pink foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Fragrant sweet and tart aroma of malt, with cherry fruits and juice, blackcurrant, yoghurt tartness, acidic, perfume, barrel and tannic; Pleasant tart and sweet taste of malt, with strong dark cherry juice and flesh, fair yoghurt tartness, carbo, sugar, light barrel and light tannic; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is close to rich maltyness in a watery background. light wheaty with fair tartness Lots of full juicy cherry flesh. Strong sweetness but not cloying, well countered by fruit and lambicís acidity. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is no nose and taste. Fair tannic for abrupt, yoghurty tart and sweet finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Just like the Premium Framboise, this one has strong malty and intense fruity character which mixed well with lambic tartness. In this case the cherry has fresh fruity, just a tad sweeter. Enjoyable for a sweet fruit lambic!

Bottle at home. Almost clear ruby with pink head, looks nice. Lots of sweet cherries, cherry lemonade and candy, marzipan, some dust and hay. Really not much more, except a light chemical touch in the finish. Quite sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied. Typical sweetened artificial kriek.

Panzerfaust (790) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - APR 28, 2016
250ml bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a deep ruby red color with a minimal pinkish fizzy head that vanishes after a few seconds. Aroma is basically cherries, but quite clean, nice without being sugary or syrupy. Itís a bit lactic and fresh. Taste is pleasant, mild tartness with some non intrusve sweetness. Good balance and the cherries integrate amazingly well. Itís not something I would kill to drink, but itís one of the few good Krieks Iíve tried. Medium body, carbonation is soft but is presence is shown very well. Easy to drink. Smooth and mild. A very pleasant Kriek, much better than the cheap fruit lambics I tried before like Chapeau or Floris.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours a clear crimson colour with a small slightly pink head. Aroma is pretty much just cherries. Flavour is obviously cherries, very sweet like a syrup but smooth, slightly tart, sourness in the finish. Doesnít really taste like a beer but itís a lovely drink.

250ml bottle. Pours dark red with pink fluffy head. Nose is quite weak, but sweet, some milk product (cottage cheese), plum, milk chocolate. Taste is quite sweet but acidic. Mouth feels some cherry juice, cheese, light wood. Quite acid for me, otherwise nicely sweet cherry juice.
