RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Poured a deep, purplish-red with a pink, fizzy head. Aroma is all fruit, dominated by cherries of course. Taste is sweet and sour cherry candy with some slight hints of malt and wheat. Its certainly good, but nothing more than a novelty act for this beer drinker.

Served from bottle into glass at home. Pours ruby red with large startling pink head that genuinely looks like cotton candy. First aroma after removing the cork is bright sour and acidity, like red wine vinegar. That aroma fades very quickly after pouring, replaced by a very strong cherry smell, like cherry pie filling. No hop or malt aroma is detectable. The flavor is even more cherry upfront, with a mild barnyard funk and sour acidity in the back, very reminiscent of the freshly uncorked aroma. Sweet finish with no hop flavor or bitterness detectable. Surprisingly full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall this beer is interesting. I had read that Lindemans fruited lambics were too sweet or overly artificial tasting, and while I do agree it is rather sweet and the cherry flavor could be interpreted by some as medicinal, neither are so egregious as to make the beer unenjoyable. The sweetness pairs well with the sour and cherry flavor to produce an effect similar to eating fresh tart cherries. The underlying barnyard and horse blanket flavors and aromas that peak out suggest a legitimate lambic component to the beer, very similar to Lindemans Oude Gueuze Cuvee Rene. In summary, this may be too sweet and overly fruited to be a traditional kriek, but it is still a complex and enjoyable brew.

Totally decent. Some sourness, a lot of cherries. Feels like a slighly sour cherry soda.

matoss (48) - Warszawa Ursus, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Czerwone, klarowne, bez piany. W smaku lekkie nuty dzikie, tak to głwnie kwaśny sok wiśniowy, smaczne i pijalne. w odczuciu słodkie, choć czuć nuty gorzkawe od wiśni.

Distant sourness too much overwhelmed by the sweet cherries. Taste is well balanced and natural but way too sweet.

labeerinthum (772) - Milano, ITALY - APR 21, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso sul fruttato e molto sulla ciliegia. Lintensit olfattiva elevata e la persistenza olfattiva apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma dal colore rosato ha una discreta resistenza e finisce con pizzo a contornare il bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine medio-fine. La carbonazione nella norma. La consistenza del liquido limpida. Il perlage costituito da poche bollicine medio-fini. Il colore porpora, tipico della ciliegia. Il corpo leggero e scorrevole. Il dolce pesante. Lamaro leggero. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto di media intensit. In bocca laroma riferisce di sensazioni di miele, di frutta e di zuccherino.

Towey1989 (2459) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a deep red colour with a fizzy pink head. Aroma of black cherries, a little marzipan and subtle bread. Taste of tart black cherries, slight sharp lemon, a little sweet sugar and subtle bread. Light bodied and a slick texture. A sweet and sour, cherry finish. A lot of sour black cherry and sharp citrus. Refreshing and probably my kriek of choice for drinkabilty.
