DeanF (2404) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
Clear ruby body and a bright pink head of a modestly sizeable disposition. Aroma of cherries, fake cherries, very fake syrupy cherries. Taste is carbonated cherry syrup, wet and sugary finish. Picture ocean spray with more sugar and carbonation. Totally not working.

Gift from a friend. Nice colour, decent aroma of cherries (surprise surprise) that didnt prepare me for the chemical aftertaste. First taste on the tongue is sweetness, but then a little sour comes before the chemical flavour kinda takes over and then that dissipates until youre left with the sweetness lingering. I cant recommend it, nor would I buy it again.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2010
(250 ml bottle. Rated @ 7.8.2010.)
Red colour, pink head. Very sweet aroma with notes of cherries of course. Sweet flavour, which (artificial) cherry concentration surprised me a bit. Only mild sourness. Light bodied with a dry finish. Not bad for a non-true lambic.

How bad can it really be? If I go in wanting fruit juice maybe it wont taste too bad? The real question is what was I thinking, but it was late at night, the only nearby open beer bar was this docked boat floating in the river, what else was I going to do.

Despite expecting it the cherry character is just screaming from the aroma; fake, sweet and with a huge aspirin like quality, the fake cherry cough syrup character is almost overwhelming. It reminds me a bit of Capri-sun cherry flavored drink. In some ways it actually smells more red, than it does of cherry, if that makes any sense. And there is a sort of play-dough like aroma to this beer somehow too. The flavor is much the same, with some definite aspirin like notes in the finish. The beer feels viscous and syrupy on the palate, but because it is just juice it is actually somewhat refreshing; sort of.

tuevo (16) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Deep red colour with a small pink head. Strong and very sweet taste of canned cherries is a bit artificial. Taste is sweet, sour and full of cherries. Too light body, almost watery. Very refreshing summer beer but nothing special. A little bit too artificial for me. More like cherry limonade than kriek.

Um, its cherry soda. Just kidding, sort of. Has a nice aroma of cherries and almonds. If youve had a Ludens cough drop, this is it bottled and carbonated. Its pretty thin and pretty sweet. Fun to try though.

jzzbassman (1588) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a ruddy clear color with a pink tinged 2 finger head. Not the most complicated of lambics, it is an easy drinker with a nice sweet vs. sour ying yang thing going on with the cherry. Some almond notes in the aroma, finishes sweet and a bit sticky.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Pours a deep red with aromas of sour, light cherries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Thin and watery in the finish.

Draught at ZBF 2010. Clear deep reddish - pink head. Lots of cherries & stones, strong almond and marzipan aroma, marzipan taste, fruity, high red berries, light sourish notes, freshness, thin finish.

Draught. Red coloured. Unclear. Dense red head. Dense cherries, almond and sweetness in the aroma. Flavour is sweetish and full of cherries. Sugary almost like a sodapop. LIght grape notable. Medium bodied. Sweet and almond dense end.
