2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark pink, clear. Pink head. Candy & cherry nose. Very very perfumed, strong artificial cherry candy aroma. Taste rather sweet, too sticky, cloying. This is a genuine liquid "poepegaatje"

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 I’d 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.

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 there’s a lot of sugar, and the cherry is muddled in the mix. Actually it’s cherry, so that’s a plus. It’s lightly, barely, tart, so that’s sort of a plus. But there’s just too much sugar for it to be pleasing.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours red with a huge pink head and a cherry aroma. There is a very sweet cherry flavor with nothing else. Not a traditional kriek by any means.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured eerie reddish-brown with a light ring of pink-tinted head. The aroma picked up very sweet cherry juice and a touch of oak.. smelled like candy. The flavor found similar.. candied, mostly sweet cherries at the core, with light cherry tartness and more sticky sugars extending outward.. finished very sweet and cherry-y. Lighter-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. tasty, but too much like candy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Intense cherry flavors. Cloudy pinkish red with a pink bubbly head. Tons of cherry, very sweet and syrupy. Thick and cloying. Not as horrible as I expected from the reviews, but definitely a small glass maybe with or as desert.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy red orange, pink orange head. Sulphur overwhelms the caramel malts , bittersweet cherry (amarena). Sweet and caramel taste, with malts trying to balance the syrup-like cherry taste. Not bad, afterall, if you love sweet drinks.
