flesje met ander etiket dan op de foto afgebeeld. rood met roze kraag. aroma van behoorlijke frambozen zoetigheid. smaken van een licht zuurtje, enorme zoetigheid en behoorlijk plakkerig, veel fruitsiroop kersen, framboos. stroperig, matige body, smaken zijn redelijk lage co2. maar komt een beetje gemaakt over door de siroop.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another top fermented sweet cherry beer, since 2005. Moussy, dense, sticky, pinkish to pale lilac head, cherry red colour with a somewhat amber hue, misty. Aroma dominated by a candy-like cherry sweetness (strawberry icecream, red candy), with a lemony sourish touch and some faint caramelly malts. Sourishly sweet, lemonade-like onset with strong carbo, releasing a glimpse of sweetish malts but quickly losing itself in a thick, syrupy, grenadine- and jam-like, cloying sweetness, which is the last thing happening in the palate. I basically bought this for rating purposes, I guess Iíll never like sweet fruit beers anyway. But I did have worse than this, even.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz bottled as Ter Dolen Kriek. Nose is tart cherry, red and black with light sugary character but not yet excessive. Pours a dark pink with a light pink head, a rich ruby body held under light but still opaque. Taste is crisp and strongly carbonated without being fierce, cherry juice is just super intense (probably closer to cherry juice with alcohol added than beer with cherry), sugar not as noticeable going down but certainly in the aftertaste and on the chompers. Fullish body, clean, very sweet and summery, at which time Iíd probably want to drink faster than this would allow (a bit syrupy in its volume, and cloying at high speeds).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red, ruby, pink head. Nose. Sweet cherries. Taste. Cherries, sweet, very cherry. Long sweet stretch. Refreshing. Alternative enough to be not a sweet Kriek, but that is all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Een goed kriekbier, niet te zuur, niet te zoet. Net het goede evenwicht gevonden zoals het hoort

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours quite rose with a pink tinged head. Aroma is cherry, but more like cough syrup than kriek. Med body or so. It is a little tart, but thereís a lot of sugar, and the cherry is muddled in the mix. Actually itís cherry, so thatís a plus. Itís lightly, barely, tart, so thatís sort of a plus. But thereís just too much sugar for it to be pleasing.
