Versus Lindemans Kriek, this ruby beer is not a beer. It tastes and smells chemicals. Don’t buy it !
En français: ignorez cette bière, un goût de médicament.
Achetez une Kriek de Lindemans c’est tellement meilleur.

Bouteille chez Lidl, arôme fruité réellement artificiel, légère et savonneuse. Imbuvable R4N5H (1166) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
33cl bottle from a gifted 12 pack, and poured into a snifter on 27-Dec-2016. Hazy reddish brown in colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of dark berries and something funky. Light body and medium carbonation. Taste is medicinal and manufactured. Lots of fruity can floss, but pretty rank. Drinking_77 (116) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Review: 33cl Bottle of Abbaye de Vauclair Rubis (Ruby): ABV: 5%
Bottle from lidl, France
On pour looks like pop, is there really alcohol in this? No head to speak of or carbonation, but a nice dark ruby, red colour is present. It is a lovey colour really.
On the nose I got a really lovely smell, a very distinctive sweet red berry like aroma which was quite nice I have to say. Very sweet, very clear and strong fruity aroma and very distinctive. had the wow factor on the nose…………
On taste well it is all a little bit chemical, a bit of a stringent taste.
Can taste the berries, or at least I hope they are berries!
It is ok, bit of an aftertaste, that does just enough to remind you that this is a beer.
Not bad. I like it. It’s fruity, has sweet malts, and it quenches the thirst and has just about enough of a kick to not make it a fruit juice!
Now I know some will put their noses up at this beer, but hell I liked it, so its a thumbs up from me, and coming from Lidl its shit cheap as well.
Strong enough too, alcohol does kick in after the 2nd bottle
Now I wouldn’t know if I’d drink a whole lot of these but its ok. Yeah it is very drinkable. Not to down, but to saviour, one or two on a hot day, and that would be enough…….

Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Unusual flavour that reminded me of marshmallows. This was not unpleasant just a bit worrying.Different but not one I will try again.

Bottle from 12 bottle party pack from Lidl. Deep clear red colour lasting pink head. Oh well this is going to be sweet from the aroma. Varied sweet fruits cherry raspberry strawberry touch of the medicinal. Oh dear no. Like kiddies sweets. Too sweet. comperchris (142) - - SEP 30, 2016
Not good. Came in a brewery box from Lidl so got the others to look forward to too. . Pours a meek red with no head or carbonation. Life less. Tastes as it looks, artificially sweet with a bitter finish. The fruit notes come through as fairy liquid. Not good...Calisky (2916) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 27, 2016
