Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours ruby red with a little head. The aroma features cherries, red fruitiness and a touch of earthy yeastiness. Taste is light sweet initially, later becoming fairly sour and dry, displaying quality – taste is balanced and not too sweet. Fruity, slightly yeasty mix altogether. The palate is medium-bodied, average in carbonation. Not my favourite type of beer but totally drinkable despite that. Peaks above one-dimensional bulk krieks. jinroh (2581) - ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2017
Pours dark red, quit clear with beautiful pink hued foam. Aroma of cherries, tart, fruity. Taste has quite strong cherry, beautiful, some cherry stone character, almonds. Very approachable, drinks easy and acidity levels are not too high. Dry fruity cherry flesh finish. BenL8 (305) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle at home to celebrate my girlfriend's new job since she loves Kriek. Pours deep red with a lot of foamy head at the beginning, dissipates slowly over time. Aroma is wonderful, rich and acidic, beautiful layered cherry aromas with a touch of oak. Complex balasamic vinegar combined with the cherry aromas. Light to medium body, sour mouthfeel. Flavour is very complex for a kriek, with many layered flavours. Medium sourness,just a hint of sweetness, lot of cherries, some oak woodiness balances the acidity and bitterness. Finishes long, acidic with cherries. Beautiful kriek, one of the best I've had. Leighton (23107) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 Looks very attractive! Cloudy red color with big pink head. Smells cherry, tartness and wood. Taste is dominated by sour cherries. Thin bodied. Highly carbonated, effervescent on palate. Slightly puckering sour finish. Very good refresher. Respectable lambic!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2017 Deep dark red beauty, wonderful aroma, reminds of wild berries, light on the mouth, very high drinkability. My first positive experience with this style, albeit I have not had many. In my opinion a great example. Zilverenmaan (336) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2017
Looks deep red, decent head. Aroma excellent: cherries with tartness and acidity in the background. Taste more acidic with cherries more in the background, less tart too. Maybe slightly watery. Personally I find the acidity of the taste a bit too dominant. ccubaka (49) - LATVIA - AUG 5, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Right after the pour you can tell that's it's lambic, the aroma and overall presence. almost no head, ruby color, deep red. As supposed, almost no carbonation, sauer but not too much. Nice aftertaste of fruit. Scipio (1312) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2017
Pours a dark red with a full, bubbly, pink head that evaporates fairly quickly. Cherry dominates the nose. Its a bit tart, with slight vinegar and and hints of yeast as well. A strong and intense tartness pierces you upon sipping, though its pretty short lived. As expected, the cherry flavor stands tall here, with some raspberry compliments, minor notes of oak, and a bit of yeast. The cherry finish is a tad underwhelming, but it sticks on your palate for a good while. Light to medium in body, more sticky in texture, and with some softer carbonation. Simply delicious.

W aromacie słodko, delikatnie pestkowo. W smaku wiśnia w charakterze gorzkiego soku, dzikie jest, taniny są. Ogólnie w porządku.
