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.

this is an exceptional lambic. of course it's a strong tart cherry taste but it is fine. this is an example of a good fruit beer, "fruit beer=bad" isnt always true. miller chill, thats bad, this is not. this has a real, clear and present chery taste, but it isnt juicy jucy juice or arbor mist.

i had to break the top of the bottle with a hammer since the cork got stuck. Sucks to do that to a six dollar beer. Oh well, life goes on.

Appearance is nice read color with amazing head.

Smells of cherries, strongly!

Tastes of cherries and funkiness

Has amazing carbonation and mouthfeel.

I don't see how anyone couldn't give this a five in drinkability.

Gorgeous, purple color. Somewhat pale in places but a nice, deep purple thoughout. Very nice head to begin with. Some nice lacing. Aroma screams black cherry. Some great peppery notes. Very full and inviting. Big fruit flavor upfront. Slight, malty backbone with a huge black cherry flavor. Peppery flavor from the sourness comes thru and is well balanced with the huge fruit presence. Very good mouthfeel-great body considering the ABV-Id expect it to be a much bigger beer. A killer beer-theres a great balance between the fruit and beer itself. Not overly sweet. This is what a wine cooler should be. Malt based beverage my ass...worth seeking out.

Pours a deep blood red that is opaque with a thicky foamy pick head that sticks around. Smells of cherries strongly with background hints of musk, leather, sweat? Tastes of intense sourness and sweetness simultaneously followed by something extremely strange, a slight hint of rotten fruit? Syrupy and highly carbonated at the same time. This extremely unique beer has a tartness that I love. It has just enough wildness as well, and these 2 elements are balanced by a sweet fruity cherry flavor.

Enjoyed in a snifter

A: pours a beautiful cherry red that is crystal clear, pours with two plus fingers of pink extremely fluffy head that lingers beautifully and leaves a ton of lacing around the glass
S: cherries, pure and simple cherries, really a wonderful nose on this one
T: cherries dominate in the forefront then it moves into a nice period of tartness in the middle and rounds out with pure sourness which linger beautifully on the palate
M: the cherry tart and sourness really awaken and soothe the palate at the same time, medium carbonation, lingering pukered up feeling from the sour and tart
O: This is the best lambic i have had to date, the taste absolutely blew me away and the scent was tantilizing, absolutely incredible, gonna need to grab some more bottles of this to test it out with some aging, loved it!

Amazing, so much fruit infused into the lambic. It's in the nose, the taste, the aftertaste..all with different levels and dimension throughout the tasting adventure. It forces you to drink more. Never buy less than the largest botle available.The only fault I could possibly find is that this is tremendously sweeter than more traditional lambics such as Cantillon, Boon, or Timmermans.
