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. It’s very fruity with a hint of sourness and slight touches of almond coming from the krieken cherry stones.

EKGoldings (664) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Overall disappointing, the taste is more on the sweet cherry ’Lindemans’ side of the Kriek street than the drier more austere Boon or Leifmans. Doesn’t have the complexity of a good lambic.

Ysok02 (1564) - Mons, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2017
Robe grenat, fine mousse, peu persistante. Nez sur le yaourt à la cerise, le curberdon, le bonbon, assez chimique. Bouche à l’attaque doucereuse, tout aussi lactée, que le nez, fine bulle, finale fruitée. Est-ce vraiment une kriek ?

Bierridder_S (929) - BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2017
06/2017 @home - 33cl bottle, 2 years past it’s BBF date. Clear red with pinkish head. Nose is sweet artificial cherry. Taste is artificial cherry, very sweet, even after all these years.

AtronSeige (1538) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 14, 2017
Aroma: Medium-high cherry aroma, very similar to cherry lollipops. Medium-light marzipan. Acidity is present, but not strong. Appearance: Brilliantly clear, red body with a small, pink head with fair retention. Flavour: Medium-light horse blanket and cherry on the first sip. Acidity is present, but balanced by a sweetness. Medium dry finish, with a lingering cherry lollipop flavour. No hops. Mouthfeel: Light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: The sweetness of the beer is detracting from what I expect from a lambic. This feels almost like a slightly complex alcopop, not a complex lambic. 250 ml bottle, poured. 23F. Fruit Lambic

Sweet cherries, fruity sourness, minor barnyard both on aroma and taste. Pleasant pop-lambic

Drunk from 33cl bottle bought at the Ghent indoor athletics track. Overly sweet artificial kriek.

Bill Becker (1037) - 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

2.9
Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2016
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.
