Bottle. Sweet cherry at the front and quite sugary. It does have a proper beer finish though. Flavour of the cherry is slightly manufactured. Not offensive but not one to grab you either.

deepdrinker (368) - Leeds, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Ruby red in colour . Aroma of cherries . Tastes sweet fruity and typical of a Kriek

375ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 15-11-2017.
From Noel Cuvelier´s.

In short: syrupy kriek beer.
Pours hazy reddish-amber with nice reddish head. Lots of sugary aromas, cherries. Taste is some artificial, sugary. Dissapointing.

teddybeer (4260) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 25, 2017
Dark reddish color, off-white head with medium retention. Aroma has notes of cherries, some wood and leather. Flavor is slightly sweet, cherry juice notes are highly present with some hints of pomegranate juice, light sirupy mouthfeel.

Fules (1427) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2017
Mélybordó szín, közepes, rendkívül tömör, tartós rózsaszín hab. Meggylé illata, némi karamellel keveredve. Meggyes, karamelles ízvilág, némi vaníliás, hordós felhanggal. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas és kesernyés, kissé fanyar. Kellemes, picit édeskés, picit savanykás, jó arányokkal rendelkező sör.

djcampbell (389) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2017
Příjemné a dobré sladké pivo s ovocnou vůní, silnějším řízem, dobrou sladkokyselou chutí a jemnou pěnou.

nihtila (4006) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle from Tesco. Deep red, pinkish head. Nose is sweet cherry, juicy, raspberries. Tastes similar. Sweet cherry, light underlying sourness.

fantastic deep red cherry colour and amazing taste - in regards to the fact that this tastes far, far more like cherries than it does beer (and then in comes that beer aftertaste!). took me a long while to finish; a nice sipping beer with a deep flavour. absolutely glad i tried this, as it is beautifully crafted and presented. would i repeat though? probably not.

Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours bright red, pink head. Nose is cherries, almonds, marzipan, it smells sweet. Taste is as the nose way too sweet for me.
