3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 cL bottle, thanks to BelJohansen. Pours clear and golden red with a lacing pink head. Extremely dry and sulphorish cherry aroma. Dry to acidic sulphor/wooden flavour. Solid citric bite following. Woody flavour seems more dominant than the cherry fruit notes. Ends in a citric to dry sulphor wood finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A red beer with a small white disappearing head. The aroma is slightly sweet with notes of wood and cherries. The flavor is boring of cherries, and dry wood with the carbonization tickling the tongue. The end is very dry with notes of over-ripe cherries.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Ruby red colour, minor head. Aroma of cherry and alcohol (cherry liquor). Minor hints of burnt sugar. Flavour is strong cherry and alcohol. Some cookies in aftertaste. Strong cherry in aftertaste. Tasted almost like the sweet Madeira Wines on Madeira island. Brutal kriek, but yet again very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle 25 cl) In my version only 5,8% ABV. A different, stronger, more dry and less sweet Kriek. More beer, less fruit. A refreshing and quenching fruit-beer based on Sour Ale rather than sweetened lambic. If you miss Rodenbach Alexander, this is a decent substitute. 220896

A full-bodied brown ale made with cherries. Has an intense fruit flavor, but no sweetness - and yet, doesn’t have the sourness of a lambic. Worth trying.
