Looks like caugh syrup. Pinkish red with a pink, foamy head. Smells and tastes like cherry pie filling. A little malt in the finish.

This pours a pinkish/red color with a slight, light pink head. There is a strong aroma of sweet cherries. The taste is smooth to the point where there is almost no carbonation. There isn’t much to let you know this is a beer, as it drinks and taste more like a cherry desert drink. Drinks very smooth and tastes delicious. This is either a hit or miss with the beer geek crowd.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a light ruby red with near white pink head. Very fruity sweet aroma of cherries . Decent flavor, quite a sweet fruit beer, not sour at all, a bit a of Belgian earthy flair in the finish but not enough to call it funk. Really quite drinkable tho, more fruit juice like of a beer.

Draft at Moriartys. Top of the keg. Cloudy rose poir with a large pillowy off-white head. Too sweet for me. Feels like cough syrup. Only for Dirty Hoes :p

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brewed at Kasteel. Pours a syrupy-looking red with a rosy pink head. The smell is cherry cough syrup, spice, and bleach. The flavor is sweet, ripened/rotten cherries, sugar, sweet malt, very little tartness. It doesn’t taste horrible but not the way a kriek should.

Red body, pink head. Aroma has lots of sweet cherry, quite artificial. Cherry candy flavour, red berries. Not my favourite.

A pinkish burgundy ale with a thin white head. In aroma, cherry Certs, very sweet but nice overall. In mouth, super sweet cherry cola, light., refreshing, but not sure It’s a beer.
