Got this at an Italian slow food store in the Kerkstraat in Amsterdam.
It is rather reddish copper than red or pink that would be typical for a Belgian Kriek. Almost white coarse head that dies to a rim rather fast.
Aroma is first bubblegum then later candy sweet, honey, maybe some underlying cherry
Taste is rather sweet, fruity, little sourness, not tart, no hops
fine tickling carbonation, body is medium
This is very different to your typical Belgian Kriek. It lacks the sourness/tartness of an oude kriek made from lambik and those alcopops that call themselves krieks but contain lots of sugar to balance the sourness. While this beer is fruity, not overly sweet and moderately sour. It is a good drinker, but I am not completely convinced. More cherry aroma would have won me.

Bottle at Beer Bistro. Pours solid pink body with lasting three-eighths inch of pinkish head. Neutral to slightly funky and sweet aroma. Middle mouthfeel, satisfying integrated cherry taste. Not too sweet and good drinkability. About a year in, still aggressively carbonated.

Light copper color, with almost one finger of white foam.
In the smell a ligh cherry tartness, fruitiness, grain, cereals, and a bit of spiciness.
In the taste againthe light tartness, with notes of cherry, and cherry kernel. Well detectable the cane sugar.
Again spicy and grainy notes.
Good mix, with a pleasant and not overwhelming tartness.
Very drinkable and pleasant.
Cherry in the aftertaste, again a light tartness, lingering, and spiciness.
