UPDATED: MAR 28, 2017 Piwo wygląda bardzo ładnie.Głęboki malinowo-wiśniowy kolor; rżowawa, dość obfita, w miarę gęsta piana. Zapach wiśni i marcepanu, trochę pralinkowy, lekko kwasowo-octowy. W smaku wiśniowa bomba. Słodycz na umiarkowanym poziomie, kwaśność rwnież. Naprawdę wyważone piwo. Myślę, że dość łatwe do wypicia dla każdego.

on tap at le saint-bock, mtl. unclear medium dark copper-red pour with a nice reviving pink head offering some retention and lacing. sweet cherries, mulled wine, other sweetness - berry jam sweetened with white refined sugar; cloves, cinnamon, pepper et al., very light tartness - not only citric acidity. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; faintly tart and sweet woodsy finish. sweet and linear but inoffensive.

Clear red beer, thin white head. Distinct cherry aroma and flavour. Some maltiness to it as well. The fruit is sharp and tangy but refreshing and not sickly at all. Nice, tangy aftertaste. A good beer anyway but itd be a great summer beer.

Butelka 375ml. Ladny klarowny rubinowy kolor.piana srednia, o lekkim rozowym zabarwieniu, utrzymuje sie w szkle . Aromat dosc kwasny ..octowy lub winny z owocowym (wisniowym) akcentem. W smaku swietny balans pomidzy kwasna winna nuta a slodkimi owocowymi akcentami. Wisnia wyraznie aktywna pozostawia slodki-syropowy smak na finiszu. Dobre

375ml bottle from Morrisons. Thin pinkish head, nice lacing. Clear dark ruby-copper body. Cherry nose, a bit marzipan. Flavour is sour cherry, berry sweetness, lasting tart finish. Medium carbonation, mouthfeel is a bit thin, dry finish. The bottle is more than enough.

Bought from Morrisons supermarket. Nice aroma, strong smell of cherries. Sweet on the palate with a sweetish aftertaste. Not in the same league as some of the other Lambic Kriek beers around but nice all the same.

Botltled. Lightly hazy burgundy colour, rich beige head. Aroma of sweet balsamic cherries. Sweet with medium body and rounded moutheel. Saccharine and sugar kills pleasant woody cherries. Fragments of pleasant flavours remains underneath all sugar and sweeteners. A slight tartness saves some character. Low bitterness.

Dark ruby with a minimal beige head. Strong aroma of cherries. Strong taste of cherries. There is nothing else in this beer. But its enjoyable. Pleasantly sour, soft carbonation, not too sweet in the end, zero bitterness. Decent.

Middle of the road cherry beer. Not sour not sweet, goes down very easily. Just nothing to distinguish it from all the other similar cherry beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
