COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Louis Premium Kriek is a kriekenbier, or cherry beer, made on a lambic base. A quarter of St. Louis Premium Kriek is the juice of Obacinska krieken cherries that have been steeped in gueuze for six months. It also has a smaller proportion of St. Louis Kriek Fond Tradition. This beer is a thirst-quencher with a low alcohol content and, in the nose, overwhelmingly sweet aromas of krieken cherries. Its very fruity with a hint of sourness and slight touches of almond coming from the krieken cherry stones.

Tesco Finest bottling. Delicous cherry flavours, nice acidic bite giving a clean refreshing edge, lowish abv but has good body and a lingering finish, nice!

Bill Becker (850) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Pours a black cherry red from this bottled on February 19th 2013 black wrapped caged and corked bottle. Big sweet cherry smell maybe some wheat. All cherries in the taste. 99% sweet, 1% tart. Lovely Belgian fruit beer, which I have a definite bias for. Take that into accoun

From bottle. Pours a clear ruby red with a small pinkish head. Aroma has lots of cherry soda, slight cherry pits, light marzipan. Taste is sweet, sour, candy, artificial, soda... You know... High carbonation and a light body.

Slubgob (313) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 13, 2016
250ml into wine glass. Looks like cherry juice with a persistent but thin carbonation. Nose is cough medicine. In the mouth, cough medicine mixed with cherry flavor. Barest hint of bitterness in the back gives way to sweetness. Shouldve known better when I saw "sweetened with Stevia" on the bottle. Really, youd be better off making a highball with Cherry Herring. At least the cherry flavor reads as real cherry and not artificial?

MartR (320) - Aespa, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2016
Nice strong cherry in aroma and taste. Light palate, but full of cherries. What ever that means. A bit of tartness in middle somewhere. Ends more sweeter. Its drinkable.

250ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear cherry red colour with no yeast sediments; Less than one quarter finger head with residual soapy off-pink foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Fragrant sweet and tart aroma of malt, with cherry fruits and juice, blackcurrant, yoghurt tartness, acidic, perfume, barrel and tannic; Pleasant tart and sweet taste of malt, with strong dark cherry juice and flesh, fair yoghurt tartness, carbo, sugar, light barrel and light tannic; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is close to rich maltyness in a watery background. light wheaty with fair tartness Lots of full juicy cherry flesh. Strong sweetness but not cloying, well countered by fruit and lambics acidity. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is no nose and taste. Fair tannic for abrupt, yoghurty tart and sweet finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Just like the Premium Framboise, this one has strong malty and intense fruity character which mixed well with lambic tartness. In this case the cherry has fresh fruity, just a tad sweeter. Enjoyable for a sweet fruit lambic!

Maakun (4224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Almost clear ruby with pink head, looks nice. Lots of sweet cherries, cherry lemonade and candy, marzipan, some dust and hay. Really not much more, except a light chemical touch in the finish. Quite sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied. Typical sweetened artificial kriek.
