COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 6 months the flesh of the fresh sour cherries slowly digests in the Lambic. The intense flavour of cherries and light nuances of almond from the pits determine the flavour of this fruity delicacy.

Note: ABV from 4.5% to 4% at some point.

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - JUL 31, 2009
25cl bottle. Pours a clear ruby colour with bubbly pink head. Aroma is cherry and a bit of tart. Flavour is fruity, too sweet, with a bit of bitterness in the finish. Sweet aftertaste. Medium body and medium-high carbonation.

JaBier (8307) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle from the back of the fridge that’s a year or two old. Drank side by side with Lindeman’s. Cloudy dark red pour with a huge pink head. Sweet cherry aroma with a hint of tartness. Malty and sweet cherry flavor with some tartness in the finish. Lindeman’s won this contest, but neither can touch Belgian Red.

Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2009
bottle (vieux bruxelles) 25 cl, amber/dark red colour with pink head. Smell: cherries, sweetness and a bit unpleasant rust smell. Taste: far too sweet, cherries, a bit grainy and very boring. But for a beer from ’the aldi’ is it ok!

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 Drank from a bottle in Amsterdam into a tulip.

This is one of the better lambics I’ve had.

color is dark red with a white head.

It smells very fruity, mostly cherries.

It tastes sweet, cherry is everywhere. with a very fine finish.

Sampled in Potsdamn. A pretty good Kriek but overall average compared to other Belgian styles. Still, bubbly and good solid flavors.

Botle, 25 cl, bought in the Aldi with the name "Vieux Bruxelles Kriek Lambic". If this beer I bought in the Aldi is indeed the same as this St Louis Kriek (it’s indeed from the same brewery), than it’s a whole difference with his "big brother" St Louis Premium. The beer looks red, with a little pink head. The smell is clearly the one of cherries and sugar, but a bit ’muffy’, unfresh. And so it goes with the taste: cherries and sugar. There’s nothing bad with the taste, but it’s sweet, too sweet for me and after a while an unnice aftertaste comes hanging in your mouth a bit. The sweet afterstaste also keeps hanging in your mouth for a while. But in the end: give me the Premium, because it’s much better.

Cherry fruit aroma. Red coloured with a cherry fruit flavour. Slightly spicy and dry in the finish.

3.3
KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Clear red with a tiny white and pinkish head. Sweet aroma with cherries and almonds. Flavour was sweet with cherries, almonds and a fairly tart cherry finish. Not bad and quite refreshing.

2.9
austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2009
25cl bottle. Dark juicy ruby, big foaming pink head. Sweet candy cherry aroma, little wheat, sweeteners and rose water. Totally over sweetened flavor, candy drop cherries, dr. pepper, kinda empty finish, a tad stuffy even. Light spritzy feeling near the end. Light to medium bodied, strong soft carbonation. Drinkable for what it is.
