Lindemans Kriek pours a black cherries black from a dark green glass bottle with a pry off cap covering a pull out cork stopper. Head of Black Cherries foam went to over two fingers before settling to a broken carpet of foam with full ring and ample lacing of my glass.
Nose is of major damp Black Cherries. Palate is of the most delicious Black Cherries, first sweet, then turning tart. The carbonation is full and complete.
Black Cheery pie is what this is, delicious and intense Black Cheery pie with out the crust. Lambic Beer is on the label, Black Cheery pie is what is on the inside.

Bottle from Pin's.
Poured into a #proper Lindemans color-print wine-style glass. Deep, dark, ruby red, cloudy, with a half-finger of pink head that retained well and left lots of lacing on the glass. Looked beautiful! Nose is pretty much pure cherry sweetness. Lots of cherry sweetness in the taste, but actually a surprising amount of tartness, especially up front, which I didn't expect, knowing Lindemans' m.o. Cherry candy, and not much else to speak of here. Crisp and syrupy mouthfeel, light-medium body, mildly dry in the finish, with the sweetness lingering to the aftertaste; moderate carb. This is a great dessert beer. Lambic purists will tell you that true krieks shouldn't be as sweet as this, and maybe they shouldn't. In that sense, this isn't very exemplary of the style, and we all know that Lindemans flavors their beers instead of using fruit in the brewing process. But that doesn't mean this can't be a good beer.
