Poured from 37,5 cl bottle (by the way, ABV 3,5) this beer presents deep ruby-red body, slightly bleary. Amidst ingredients aroma and fructose - not very good, I suppose. Pink head with even bibbles is rather long-playing. On the bottom awaits sediment, be aware, it may break appearance and impression, if it gets into froth. Fresh & light sour cherry perfume with lambic tones is in harmony with bracing drinkability and half-dry aftertaste. Mouth remains refreshed with sour-sweet aftertones.
So, I like it and recommend it as an example of good classic kriek

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.
