KansaiBeerLvrs (3346) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. Kriek 4% bright candy red color with a pinkish head. The nose is sweet cherry juice, this is where the set goes off the rails a bit. Soft carbonation, light bodied with a slightly dry finish. The beer is mostly sweet cherry juice. Alright but one dimensional, thankfully the cherry character is natural juice rather than artificial seeming. Weakest of the set.

Seems sweeter than Lindemans kriek, tasted like maraschino cherries, nice, but I definitely prefer the Lindemans, which is a bit sourer.

Achel (205) - GREECE - JUL 1, 2015
Pours red with very little head retention. The aroma is artificial cherry candy. The taste is artificial cherry as expected from the nose. A beer with antioxidant it s not a beer.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2015 Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a ruby red with a white and low rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of maraschino cherries, cake spices and you know it is going to be sweet. Taste is indeed really sweet, cloying, bursting with saccharine, cherries and bready notes. Only faintly tart, not nearly enough to save it from being cloying. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel juicy and almost syrupy. Overall I could have gone another year without sampling this but I’m glad it’s over now. It was "OK" but weak even for a sweetened fruit lambic, really.

czar (5843) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
pours dirty dark golden reddish with a diminishing off-white cap, minimal retention. strong maraschino cherries, foret-noire cake, shy lambic character, some wood, citrus peel, raspberries, candies, light acidity. average carbonation, light body, sweetish, woodsy and fruity-spicy finish. decent for what it is.
