From notes

Appearance: It has a nice amber/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of cherries, some tart raspberries and faint bready notes.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has dominant cherry notes, a light tartness and faint yeast esters.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas although it's not quite what I expected from a Lambic.

Pours with a hazy, light red color, topped with a white head with a red undertone.
The aroma is pleasantly sweet nad fruity - cherrylike.
The taste is sweet, there's definitely cherry in there. Finishes with a bit of bitterness somewhere in there.
A very decent kriek.

2011. From Beer Cartel.

A - deep claret and fizzy. Large bubbles in head. Spotty lace. Large bubbles die to film, not a good look, somehwat high-tide - ish.

S - ice cream. Yep - ice cream.

T - fruits, cherries, raspberries almost. Really quite sweet, and where is the tart and funk? there at the 1% mark, maybe, but this is not a lambic in any way. Very lightweight palate.

M - medium carbonation, undercarbonated for style.

O - fail. Sad, but really not as good as their gueuze at all. Just too sweet and such a lightweight taste for dollar.
