On tap in Kortrijk. What a treat to drink this on tap! A perfect summer beer, low alcohol content, fruity, refreshing. Not a beer to drink sequentially, but one is a fine diversion. Wonderful smell, delightful beer variant.

Der Kirschgeschmack ist klar wahrnehmbar, aber nicht zu viel. Ein gutes Kirsch Lambic.

KoNrRiI (1319) - rhus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2016
0.33 bottle. Clear, dark crimson color and a small, pink head. Aroma is obviously dominated by cherries and features small hints of chocolate. A sweet and sour taste of cherries - relatively refreshing considering krieks. A medium body, a slick texture, and an above average carbonation. Finish is medium long and not particularly strong. Overall the beer is good, its flavorful but balanced and unimposing, sweet but not tacky.

20160605 Home; 37.5 cl bottle; BB 20200304; Kriek 2015 with 4% ABV: A very red clear beer with a red foam layer, which disappears nearly direct. A really big smell of cherry and framboises (red fruit) and off course a sour impression. The taste is more or less the same, but with an adding of bitter from almonds. In the aftertaste somewhat sticky of the sweet and dryness of the sour. Also the bitterness of almonds stays. A kriek with a good taste, but a too sweetly aftertaste. But still also a wooden smell and taste.
