4.27/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours brown purple with red highlights. A giant pink fluffy head recedes rather quickly and leaves a whole wall of lacing.

Smell is all tart cherries with a lightly funky yeast underneath.

Taste is spot on, sweet cherries in front, and tart in the end. Not much else here.

Feel is smooth and creamy with some pucker. Very light and easy to drink.

Lots of flavor here for such a low abv. This beer is kind of nostalgic for me as it was the first lambic I ever drank. Less tart than it's berry cousins. Quite strange to look at a pink beer though, which makes it very unique.

Poured into a New Belgium globe glass. The beer is a deep yet light ruby red, almost a cream-colored redness about it. The pinkish head settles to a layer of random bubbles and film. The beer smells if sweet cherries with a hint of alcohol. The beer tastes deliciously sweet with a tangy cherry tart. The mouthfeel is relatively lively and light bodied.

Overall, this is simply delicious and easy to drink. Low ABV, excellent taste and smell. A great dessert beer, and one of my favourite Lindemans offerings.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A moderate pour got me a little over half a finger of head that can best be described only as strawberries and cream colored. The body is a deep, rich maroon color. The head dissipated down to a few bubbles up top and a ring around the glass, but a thin sheet of lacing struggles to cling to the sides.

Smells of sweet black cherries and medicine mostly.

The flavor is that of deep rich black cherry, with a hint of medicine, making it like a pleasant cough drop flavor. There is a slightly bitter tang to the end as it warms up. Also appearing as it warms is a slight grain flavor in the middle. Overall, very sweet.

Light bodied and highly carbonated, this beer is most pleasing to the palate, although it isn't something I would drink a lot of, nor often. The carbonation is almost that of pop, but this in no way detracts from the drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle shared with my girlfriend and family. Poured into a tulip.

A: Deep red/maroon body with a huge fluffy, creamy soft pink head. The lacing and retention were both stellar, leaving this patches on both the walls and a nice cap on the surface. Sure, it's red and pink but for the style it's great.

S: Sweet and sugary black cherries, strawberries and red grapes. Along with the sweetness is a nice subtle tart nature but you can tell it won't be so puckering. A semi-sweet red wine quality comes through towards the back end, nothing really in the way of an abundance of malt or hops though. The fruit dominates.

T: Very sweet but not sickeningly. Black and red cherries are the center of this flavor profile. There's a bit of a tart edge due to the underlying lambic base of this beer though it's certainly been masked quite a bit with the sweetener. Not that I mind it, but in large quantities this might be too much. The finish is dry and fruity, really just an easy drinking exceptional beer.

M: Light and bubbly, highly carbonated but there's nothing to fault here as this is what the style calls for. Dry and sweet flavors lingering around.

Perhaps this is a guilty pleasure but I enjoy a beer like this from Lindemans from time to time. It's a nice change of pace while still giving you traditional lambic qualities with a sweetened edge to it. Not something I could drink in large amounts but this always seems to go over well with everyone.

This poured out as a nice looking red color with a thin pink colored head on top. The smell of the beer is of cherry which is a good thing. The smell has some light wild yeast aromas in there too giving a little bit of funk on the nose. The taste of the beer is of sweet and sour cherry. It seems to start sweet and end with the tart. The mouthfeel is similar to a carbonated wine. Overall it's not a terrible lambic in my opinion, however some think that Lindeman's is just too sweet all around. To each their own.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy cherry-coloured body, light cover of bubbly pink head with a little lacing. Beautiful colour but it could use some better head retention.

Cherry is prominent and unmistakable on the nose but the first thing it has me thinking of are Halls cherry cough drops! That said, it does smell good and isn't overly-artificial. Bready yeast, black forest cake, cinnamon, a little dust and a very subtle funk.

For 3.5% ABV the flavour here is huge and cherry dominates; a mostly natural character but with a touch of Cherry Blasters thrown in. Quite sweet with a light tartness, sour lemon, minerals and yeast, a touch of spice (cinnamon), herbal hops in the background and almost no funkiness. Mostly big candy-like cherry flavour.

Light body with lightly effervescent carbonation. Drying cherry finish.

Compared to the only other kriek I've tried (Cantillon Lou Pepe) this example is a bit plain; complexity is not in the same league at all. Still, this is a pleasure to drink and I could see how this would be very accessible to people who think they don't like beer. Sweetness is high but it doesn't come off as cloying nor as a fruity cooler pretending to be a beer. I couldn't drink a lot of it (due to sweetness) but one is great. This would definitely pair well with all kinds of desserts (especially anything chocolate). If there's any brett in here I'd love to try this aged with more showing; I'm not picking up on any and feel it could really use a little.

Review taken on Christmas Eve 2012.

355 ml (12 oz.) darker than Dark green bottle. Bottle is thicker and heavier than most. Foiled, capped, and corked. Very classy appeal. Poured into a flute glass.

A - ruby red in color that's on the darker side. Beautiful and creamy pink colored head that sits proudly on top. Some very nice lacing with this one.

S - very cherry. It's a simple aroma that's both sweet, and sour/tart.

T - black cherries completely dominate every aspect of the flavor. The complexity is the use of cherry and really remarkable. The way it comes from sweet to sour and finishes with tart is unreal. This taste really has it all with sweetness, but also a pristine sourness. All the many flavors of cherry incorporated in this brew is something to be proud of.

M - light to medium in body with good carbonation. Easy to drink and I detected no alcohol taste at all. Smooth with an almost champagne like dry finish.

O - one of the best lambics I've ever had. Simple cherry flavor transformed into a complex beer. The character and complexity used with one flavor aspect is wonderful. Just a delicious experience. Something I'll enjoy again. Good change of pace and soothing.

Enjoyed in a snifter

A: dark ruby red, intriguing. Pours with a 1" head, which is of a dark pink color. A lot of lacing.

S: the smell is unparalleled to anything. It's smells like carbonated juice, the black cherries have a strong scent. Scent draws you in, makes you look forward to the first sip, very enjoyable. Smell is similar to that of a freshly opened bag of twizlers

T: great combination of sweet and sour. The taste of the black cherries is very unique and delicious. Starts off very fruity, and finishes with a sour/ tart taste.

M: mouth party! The way it changes from sweet to sour awakens your palate. It is not too carbonated so it is easy to drink.

Overall, this is an incredible lambic, such a good pick up. I am usually one that hates fruity beer but this completely changes that concept. The black cherry sweetness and the sour finish is a great combination. Thanks for the recommendation @bigplay1824

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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

The head was but a finger, but it lasted quite a bit. Lace was pretty decent, but spotty. Color was an amber-red and pretty clear.

Smell was fruity, cherries mainly, with a touch of funk and some musty notes.

Taste was strongly cherry and berry, tart, with a touch of sour, but some sweetness too. It's a lovely tasting beer, actually. I'm a big fan of fruit beers and this one is certainly plenty on the money.

Body is light and fruity with an almost syrupy finish and just a touch of tartness on the end.

I like this beer. All the beers I've tried from this brewery so far I've liked. Nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy dark red with a 3 inch foamy red-white head that settles to an island of foam. Random clumps of foamy lace cling to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sweet and sour cherries and some slight funk. Taste is pretty much exactly the same with the funk coming through a bit stronger in the aftertaste. There is also a slightly acidic quality to this one. This beer has a higher level of carbonation with a very crisp mouthfeel. A bit of a sticky residue in the mouth after each sip. Overall, this is another good Lindemans take on the lambic even though it may not be the most authentic product out there.

A: deep ruby red with a one finger light pink head and decent lacing.

S: Strong sweet cherries.

T:  Sweet cherries upfront with a slightly dry/tart finish.

M: Medium/light body with fizzy medium/high carbonation. Left with a slight pucker.

O: Pretty one dimensional, but it's an enjoyable sweet fruit brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a flute. Appears a dark red color that is somewhat hazy and has a nice pink head. The head leaves great lacing all around.

Nose is very sweet. Lots of cherry. Somewhat sour as well. The cherries smell almost candy-like, but isn't overly strong. Taste is again, straight cherries. Just as sweet as expected, and the tartness doesn't sit in until late. Not as tart as I was hoping for. Hard to detect anything else in the taste or smell.

Mouthfeel is very thick and leaves a huge thick film on the palate. Good carbonation levels. Overall, an interesting beer. A little too sweet for me, but it is honestly a nice beer that satisfies any sweet tooth cravings you may be having.

Reviewed on November 4th, 2011. Poured from a 355 mL bottle into a Snifter. This will be my first ever Lambic tasted and I am quite excited to taste this beauty.

A: Poured a beautiful one fingered head. This drink is just rising with carbonation. The head is a beautiful light purple shade and the body almost looks like Grape flavor. The carbonation actually calms down after a short period.

S: Dark beautiful cherries come to my nose. It smells so deliciously sweet that I just want to bathe in this smell. It's oddly not deep though, but just simply cherry.

T: The taste comes as if it comes from crazy angers. It comes out tart, but the end bite to this drink reminds me of cherry pie. This taste as if I am just devouring a strong tart juice and damn is it insanely good. At times it feels like this can pack a sour punch, but oddly not always. That tartness stays deliciously on the tongue.

M: This holds a nice medium body. The carbonation of this drink simply reminds me of a wine. I really can't tell your if this is a highly carbonated drink, but it might be. Either ways the carbonation feel is just great.

O: Is this really considered a beer? This almost feels like a sparkling grape juice. This is no question that this can be a session beer, but I just can't think of an occasion to drink this for. I thought a beer and a salad was crazy, but after tasting this I could now imagine this food pairing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a - very pretty looking. deep raspberry. transparent. couple inches of pink head that lasted for a while. great lacing

s - at first it is a very strong cherry cough syrup aroma. as it warms it turns more into a sweet cherry pie.

t - very tart fresh out of the cold bottle. the more it warms the more the flavors mellow out, almost into a sweet red wine.

m - light, frothy, smooth, a little dry, carbonation dies down dramatically over the course of an hour and a half in the glass

o - at first i was afraid i had made a bad choice in purchasing this bottle. i have always hated the smell (and taste) of cherry cough syrup, which was the exact strong smell i got when i poured this into the glass. however, my fears were swept away after a short time for two reasons. first off, i FINALLY found something my girlfriend took more than just one sample of. she actually said she might drink this one! this is a huge victory for me. the second reason i was happy with the bottle was because, as stated before, as the glass sat out longer, the more this lambic turned into a tasty red wine flavor.

*note: weizenbob's review (a few before this one) is spot on. i recommend looking at his for a good feel of what you're getting into

355ml Bottle

Appearance – Hazy red/burgundy colour with an average size frothy pink coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Wheat/grains, lemons, cherries

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a below average amount of carbonation. I can taste wheat mixed with lots of lemon juice, but it's not too overly sour. There is also of course a lot of sweet cherry flavour. The balance of sweet and sour is really good. It ends with a cherry tart citric aftertaste.

Overall – I've still only tried a handful of lambics, but this one was one of the better ones so far. I'm glad I only had a small bottle of it though, I don't think I could drink too much of it in one night. If I could chance one thing, I'd bump up the alcohol level a little bit..

Pours a creamy,strawberry colored head over a cherry soda body. Curtains of lace on the glass. Aroma is cherry. Taste is crisp, with a
tart and tangy cherry bite to it. The merest hint of acidity and pleasing aftertaste. No noticible alchohol too it.

A- Pours a dark ruby red with a fluffy 1 finger head, which retreats quickly, little lacing

S - Smell is nice, mainly of tart cherries, sweet and inviting

T - As expected follows the nose and the cherries dominate. There is also a little bit of sourness following the sweetness

M - Mouthfeel is nice, light carbonation, very light, but dont think I would want more than 1, due to the sweetness

O - I dont drink many of this style, but for me this is a nice change-up. Easy drinker, plenty of flavor, and I can still function afterward

750 mL bottle purchased for $8.99 at Jimmie Garant’s in Alpena, MI. The bottle was foiled, capped and corked. What, no wax? The cryptic code on top of the foil likely indicates that this was bottled 12/22/09. The cork comes off with a nice pop. I poured this into my Lindemans lambic glass.

A careful pour yields two fingers of bubbly, rose-tinted head. Head retention is low as the bubbles burn out pretty quickly. However, the head is somewhat self-renewing thanks to a high level of carbonation visible through the glass. Sticky lacing is everywhere. The brew is crimson colored and translucent. (With some haze it would look like blood.) It’s a typical Lindeman’s look. I thought they were quite novel at first, but the novelty has worn off. It doesn’t excite my eyes the way my first Framboise did. (I poured the second pour straight down the center of the glass, yielding about 80% head in the glass, with the bubbles rapidly expiring. These are pretty volatile brews.)

Not surprisingly the aroma is akin to cherry scented Lindemans lambic. There is a contrast between the tart snap of the spontaneous fermentation and the distinct scent of sweet black cherries. It works well. These lambics are noted for their intense fruit aromas, and though cherry does dominate the aroma, it is more subdued than other Lindeman’s fruit lambics. I kind of appreciate the restraint.

The taste is well balanced between a tart lactic bite, and the sweet flavor of cherry juice. It may be the sweetest fruit lambic I’ve tasted; and it also may be the best balanced. Complex it is not, but balanced for sure. The finish is sour and reminiscent of granny smith apples. Per style, hop bitterness is nary to be found. Alcohol? Forget about it. However, a mild sulfurous taste persists in the mouth after the swallow.

With the heavy amount of carbonation and the otherwise light body, drinking Lindemans Kriek is more akin to sipping soda than beer. It is extremely easy drinking, and extremely low in alcohol. Oddly, it leaves a gritty acidic feeling on the teeth, but it is otherwise barb free. This $9 bottle is the cheapest that I’ve found, but that doesn’t make it economical. I find that these are a nice alternative to champagne when my wife and I are in a celebratory mood (Lindemans fruit lambics are the only beers she will drink). As such, this is more of a treat than a daily driver. They’re fun for what they are.

Bottle served in a small goblet.

Appearance: Dark ruby color with a cute pink head.

Smell: Primary aroma is a blended cherry smell - fresh black cherries and also a syrupy cherry extract aroma. Mostly pleasant, but a slightly medicine aroma makes it a little strange.

Taste: Similar to the nose with two types of cherry flavor. The sweetness is a bit overpowering and makes it difficult to make out the flavors.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with high levels of carbonation.

Overall: A decent desert beer with tons of cherry sweetness. Not terribly complex or interesting, but not a bad beer.

Long ago I thought this beer (with only 3,5% alcohol) was great. I felt some sourness and fruitiness I really liked. And the low degree of alcohol brings that it is permitted to drink it on all days of the week ;)

Then I got to learn the real geuzes and fruit-lambiks, like Oude Kriek, and saw their very greatness.

Now returning to this stuff I'm quite perplex that I ever liked it so much.

L: one finger foam; old cherry colour;
S: nice, but not so much to mention; cherry ofcourse, a bit of almond perhaps (or is it whishful thinking?), but most of all sweeteners and sugar.
T: it looks like a nice cassis-sprite-bitterlemon, with some cherry, but then somewhat more fresher.
M: ok.
O: I have decided to let it score higher 'overall' than it deserves. In his class of sweetened lambiks this straight forward one is one of the best. The high score is only because of this: best product in this type of artificial sweetened beers.

Compared to real beer it deserves less. But that was not my point of fixation.

Review from notes - bottle reads 3.5% ABV

Two fingers of frothy bubblegum pink head rests on top of a gorgeous ruby red body, displaying fantastic retention and leaving generous amounts of lace down the sides of the glass. Heavily carbonated with a touch of haze. I can't even believe I'm looking at a beer.

The cherry scent is split in two with ripe and sweet black cherries being on aspect and syrupy sweet cherry candy being the other. A touch of bread in the mix and a light layer of dust on top of it all. Straightforward and intriguing.

The sourness is light and unobtrusive, tickling the sides of the mouth and moving to the tip of the tongue. Cherry Blasters is the best way to describe the cherry flavour for me, just a touch less sweet. There's a soft earthy bitterness in the finish with a kiss of hay. As the beer warms, the more this raw and natural profile comes out.

The feel is crisp and spritzy. Light bodied and ridiculously refreshing. At 3.5%, this is a perfect summer session.

The first time I had this a year or two back, I thought it was nothing more than fruit juice. I'm glad I revisited this. It's much more complex than I remember. The sourness is well integrated and not in the least prominent. A good intro into the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purplish red colour that is topped by a pink coloured, pinky sized head that is a bubbly one that has good retention, taking about a minute to reduce to a thin lacing.

A large sour cherry presence, not unlike a fruity wine in smell and there is an hint of apples and a sugary sweetness to it.

Matching the nose there is a lot of sour cherries in the taste & a general sweetness too it that helps to balance against the sour cherries. There is also some wheat in the taste and the aftertaste is a kind of sour red grapes one.

Medium bodied & very smooth with a pleasant tang to it. There is a lot of carbonation present & the drink is quite refreshing.

Similar to a few of the fruit beers I have drank in the past but this one seems a little better. The fact that the beer is so fruity leads me to believe that it would get rather sickening after more than a couple bottles.

Live Review. Poured into my mini snifter.

Bottle was purchased for my fiancée, and I decided to snatch a little from her and review it. Thanks honey :)

A: Pours a deep purplish red with a tiny pink head that receded quickly and left very little lacing. Tiniest of rings of bubbles cap the beer.

S: Overly sweet cherry, a tiny hint of funk and acidity. Not a lot here, but not really all that bad.

T: Sweet cherry off the bat, but as it warms the sweetness lessened it's grip on the palate. Funk is light, earthy, damp hay, and a slight mustiness. Acidity is very light and towards the finish ALMOST turns sour. What malt that does peak it's hea through is dry, almost cracker like.

M: Thin, very lightly carbonated, slick on the palate.

O: This bottle is by far the least sweet I've tried. It's also the most noticeably funky bottle I've tried as well. Being the one beer my fiancée will drink, it's in the house a lot, and I'm grateful for that fact. As a fruit beer, it's average. If you get a bottle like this one, it's not overly sweet, slightly funky and acidic. If you get a bottle like most I've had, it's overly sweet almost to the point of tasting fake (with it being artificially sweetened, that should be expected though), with very little acidity and funk.

The regular bottles I'd rate more along the lines of 3/3/2.5/3/3. This one gets a little bit higher for being better. I hope every bottle I buy for her is like this one. I won't hold my breath.

A: Pours a dark, clear cherry red with a fizzy pink head of average size. Reasonable retention, sinking to a patchy cap of foam and leaving spotty lacing.

S: An acetic note, green apple tartness, and sour cherries are almost overwhelmed by loads of black cherry, cream soda, and cola smells. Musty, barnyard yeast aromas lurk beneath it all.

T: Juicy, sweet black cherries and cream soda, cut through momentarily by bitter green apple and cider vinegar on the swallow before subsisting to sour and mostly sweet cherries and just a hint of wheaty malt.

M: Light-bodied with lively fizz to cut the sweetness and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Drinks as easily as soda due to the understated sourness, which is a bit disappointing but present enough to balance the ample sweetness.

D: As I said, it's a bit disappointing for my first kriek having come to it through a gueuze - I was expecting more sourness and complexity in the flavour profile. That said, it's still delicious, refreshing, and worth trying with a chocolate dessert, or just by itself before the season turns.
