4 or 5 year old bottle courtesy of my dad. I don’t think it’s stood up that well against the test of time. Cream soda body that lacks carbonation. Flat , flat, flat.Cream soda and apples in the nose, with a slight old rotten cherry aroma. Sweet boozeyness fills the mouth, and its only 5%. Avoid this one.

Wow...How can something with such a powerful aroma have absolutely no taste? This beer looks like a mix of half cream soda and half Alpine. Pinkish brown (is that possible?) in colour with a thin fizzy white head. The aroma is powerful cough syrup and sour cherries, with the tiniest bit of bitter hops. After smelling it, I was bracing myself for a violent cough syrup taste, but no, to my surprise there was no taste at all. Very weak cherry flavour, otherwise bland, maybe a little bitter, but not hop bitter. Very dry palate, not pleasing at all. dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2002
Kriek?????????? My *ss! Cheap light beer with a little bit of cheap cherry extract intended to flavour Gob Stoppers. Very artificial almost cinamin-like cherry flavour. If you made the same mistake as I did and bought two six packs of the stuff without trying it first, and just before taking the ferry from Port aux Basques to North Sydney (so you cannot return it) then you're as foolish as I am..... mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2002
tried this awhile ago and I didn't like it. tried it again and I still don't like it. it doesn't taste much like a kriek. style aside, it's too freaking sweet. if they called it 'marachino cherry ale' I might give it a 1.8 Bov (14988) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 24, 2002
dark orange colour with almost no head, cinamon, cherry icecream-like and unfermented malt in the nose, sweet, buublegum with a terrible, awful finish - what is this ?!?

You guys are rough. It's really not such a bad beer, just very average. Some would still find it enjoyable: it's a refreshing strawberry-blonde brew with a hint of Frangelico or amaretto notes. Unimpressive, but what do you expect from Newfies? daboskabouter (1469) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2002
Hazy, sparkling yellow color. Sweet marschino cherry/cream soda aroma. Artificial candy cherry flavors, faint hop bite. Very dry and overall, just not very appetizing. But hey, my girlfriend might dig it, she can have th second one. Loic99 (23) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 25, 2001
Egad! this beer taste a bit like bubble gum meets flat Molson Dry beer...not very original, lacks real punch and way too much fuzz...most likely to be found at stag parties in Nfld shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 24, 2001
Puke. Cream soda at the beginning. It tastes like someone took
very bad beer with no taste or mouth feel (say, Coor's Light, with
all the flavour taken out) and then tossed in a dash of vile syrup.

They cannot possibly intend it to taste like this. Colour: pale, unexciting; Nose: like cream soda Flavour: awful. sickly sweet, cream soda again, and the fruit (if you can call it that) completely clashes with the cheap, grainy lager; Palate: sickly sweet, thick, syrupy, overcarbonated Overall: One of the world's worst beers. Try it side-by-side with its evil twin Magus Mary from Estonia - same awful concept, same awful result, two very different places.
