Kriek is a type of beer which I've learned to appreciate lately. And this one is quite nice actually. I've understood that this is not a "real" kriek though.
The bottle is extremely cool, a large tube of steel with a 75 cl bottle inside. A bit over the top so to speak. The beer pours a bright red color with a small, fast dissapearing, white foam.
The smell is full on sour notes of cherries and some sweet malts. Really nice actually, the smell is really fresh.
Tastes good, but not as sour as expected. Lots of cherries and some sweet malts. Slight notes of aged hops balances it up.
A nice Kriek, but not in the same class as Cantillon.

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
Serving type: on-tap
