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.

Super sweet. Artificial cherries, high carbonation, plenty of sugar, definitely added sweeteners. Reminds me of cherry 7Up, and I kinda like it. Yeah.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated last year and just getting around to entering. On draft at The Belgian Monk in Norwich, England. Pink head and dark pink pour. Rich cherry taste, medium heavy mouthfeel. Slightly tart. Nose is almost savory, not much cherry, but the taste is quite nice.

Thought this had a nice pink color. Nose was cherries with a bit of tartness. Lots of sweet cherry with some tart bsck end. Easy yo drink. Didn’t think it was too sweet at all.

A few sips from a glas, done from memory, rating is just for my own. I will edit if I drink it again, aroma was heavy in the cherries, taste was cherry, decent beer but almost too artificial in the cherries.
