Interesting beer. Faded red/brown colour and pink head. Strong cherry notes but does not dominate. Quite tart with some interesting flavour notes. Good, but I wouldn’t have more than one.

A can somewhere in Brussels.... Not a big fan of Krieks, but had to drink it at least ones for the record. The ruby color knocks me out every time.

From old tasting notes. Deep burgundy red color topped by a light pink head. Sweet tart cherry nose, characteristically lambic. Flavor of tart cherries.mbubbly and effervescent. Light fruity malt flavor is cherry strong.lingering finish is tart and lightly hopped.

Zlotta (3210) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2017
0.25 l bottle from ’Brunne vun Kölle’ as ’Belle-Vue Kriek Classique’ at 5.1% abv, best before November 2017. Clear, deep red with a medium large, foamy, stable, pinkish white head. Sweetish, a little sourish, sugary and fruity aroma of lots of cherry juice, sorbet powder and raspberry. Rather sweet, just a little sourish, very fruity (a bit artificial) aroma of cherry juice, sorbet powder, raspberry and a touch of almond, followed by a short, slightly tart, a bit dry but rather sugary finish. Thin to medium body, a bit astringent and fairly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay, just not too sweet and quite refreshing, but totally lacking depth and intensity.

czlowiekwiadro (946) - POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
zapach kwaśny, dość mało słodki, wyraźnie wiśniowy, w tle trochę słodów, poza tym czysty. kolor jasnoczerwonoróżowy, lekko opalizujący, piana biała, skąpa i dość nietrwała, ale na powierzchni utrzymuje się cienką warstwą. w smaku dość wytrawne, mało kwaśne jak na styl (choć dalej dość kwaśne), czuć wiśniowe nuty ale nie dominują. w tle sporo słodów, gorzkich nut z pestek wiśni i kurzu. lekko kukurydziany posmak. goryczka wyraźna, pestkowa i kurzowa. nasycenie wysokie.

john44 (3078) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle. Cherry Red. Pink head. Sweet overall but with a tart sour cherries fruit edge. Dry finish. Slightly medicinal. Rather reminiscent of Cherry Tunes sweets. Didn’t like it. (2008)

2.9
Pallleon (331) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 9, 2017
A balatonlellei nyaralásunk állandó kisérője, mivel csapolva kapható a strandon. Bármelyik magyar meggysörnél jobb, ugyanakkor közvetlen vetélytársai közt kapásből mondok több jobbat. Barnás vörös szín, szinte hab nélkül. Kesernyés-édeskés íz.

2.4
BeerandBlues2 (13216) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear ruby with a medium, frothy pink head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate cherries with light graham cracker malt. Flavor is lightly tart cherries, medium graham cracker malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
