1 PT 9.4 FL.OZ Bottle. Poured clear dark ruby red with a light pink head. Aroma is mostly cherries as you may expect. Taste is consistent with aroma although a bit too sweet for my liking is not bad some sour note along the way and a dry finish.

Camons (5885) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle @ Schraevenacker, Belgium. Pours red with a light pink head, loads of lively bubbles. Aroma is sweet, cherries, marcipan, mandelessens. Flavor is very sweet with some cherry, marcipan, sweets. Medium body, average carbonation. Very sweet, but not totally awfull. 020814

Kauge (99) - 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.

JefVerstraete (1276) - 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 (6580) - 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.

caesar (5063) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled from Mitra Bunnik, BB 07-2015, medium sample, poured into a tulip glass. Clear ruby color, short frothy pink head leaving some frothy lacing. Aroma of sweet artificial cherry, marzipan, slight tart. Very sweet, just a hint of sourness. Artificial stuff, way unbalanced into a sweet sugary mess. Sweet krieks can be my guilty pleasure, but only when properly made. This aint one of them.

Again a fake lambic, some sour notes but very hidden by sugars and malts, syrup notes.

edsspoon (377) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle - pours bright red with a thin light pink head that gradually fades to a ring. Aroma is sour cherries and bubblegum. Taste is sour cherry, medium sweet, little bit of malt and a very light bitterness. Quite dry, light body and light to medium carbonation. Just tastes like cherry juice really.
