A perfect dark cherry kriek! If you think it tastes like cough medicine, probably should stay away from all lambics eh? This is a great beer with a lovely finish, a perfect bottle to share with friends to finish an evening.

Pours a deep garnet with light purple head. Big cherry aroma like a liqueur or cordial, not quite cough syrupy or cough drop. Big sweet cherry flavor, almost viscous. Okay beer.

Dark ruby beer with small thin pink head. Aroma is cherry, sour fruits. Taste is sweet cherry, malts and little sour feel. Medium body. Nice warming cherry tasting fruit beer.

Poured into a tulip glass, a tap soda foam levels quickly revealing a deep ruby color. With no visible bubbles, this rouge ale sits like blood solid in the glass. The scent is that of a good old school black cherry soda. A bold thirst quenching juiciness explodes on the taste buds, with a heavy liquor feel. Hints of Spanish brandy and fresh cherry pie. The finish is not as rich as the taste though; I feel this Belgian could’ve considerably benefited from barrel aging, so the sugar content is contrasted by oakiness. An excellent Belgian, I’m surprised by the lukewarm ratings on this one. Cheers Castle VH!

I drunk better kriek than this. This so sour, but not the good way. I will not buy it anymore.

7-3-7-3-13. Nothing wrong with it: looks ok, smell and taste of sweet cherries natural, carbonation ok. Uncompromising sweet cherriebeer

Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a deep ruby colour with a thin pink head. Aroma of black cherry, kirsch, slight red fruits and subtle sourness. Taste of black cherry, kirsch, some syrup, slight dark malts, a hint of sourness and subtle oak/wood. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A sweet, sticky cherry finish. Lovely and sweet, cherry liquor aroma. Taste is still cherry liquor but more woody and less sour, quite sticky. It’s nice but expecting more from how it began.

Rdece barve, okus ima po vinu. Zelo dober. Priporocam zelo, ker je okus zelo zelo dober. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
