This tastes like winegum, and there is almost no foam. It is quite citric.

This beer was bought in France for a whopping 2,5 EUR, and I see nothing in it's quality to justify it, it's a sweet-sour beer that tastes like more like strawberry/cherry wine. The aftertaste lasts very long, at least that is value for money.

Mort Subite translates to Sudden or Instant Death. Yep, that pretty well describes this muddled mess. There seem to be too many ingredients. Very sweet but bland in the fruit department. Taste needs more cherries. Smell is pretty good though, fruity with a mixture of berries and medicinal sweet cherries. Thick frothy pink head looks good. Very pink, impressively pink.

On-tap at Churchill's, served in a tulip.

Pours blood red with a little tinge of pink. One finger bright white head. Lacing and retention are good.

Smells like Maraschino cherries mixed with table sugar. This seems like it should be mixed with ice cream...

Tastes mostly like one of those fruity vodka drinks your girlfriend might order at a bar. Super syrupy and sugary. Not a touch of alcohol can be tasted here. It does taste like cherries, so there's that. I can feel a sugar rush hitting me...

Creamy mouthfeel with stinging high carbonation.

This beer is too sweet and sugary. Consider drinking it if you're reaching for a Smirnoff Ice. You just got iced, bro.

On tap at Washington Commons. Happy birthday, Max!

Red beer, good head, nearly clear. Sexy appearance. Yum. But then I smelled it. Ludens cherry cough drops. This isn't beer. This is the drug store. Ouch. Nostrils flare, another sniff, whoof, more medicine. Such a shame. The taste is still consistent, with a terrible aftertaste, persistent softness ad sweetness, but besides tart, there's nothing to the taste until the medicinal end.

Time to pack the girlfriend for the trip home to Atlanta. She liked this beer, but I didn't love it. Still love the style though.

Sweet cherry flavour, with perhaps a bit of late sourness and tartness. Pretty light and refreshing, which makes it good to drink in summer, however it is perhaps a bit too sweet for me.

A: Lovely bright ruby red color with a foamy pink head that settles quickly, decent lacing.
S: Aroma of candied cherries, very straightforward.
T: No surprises, just fruit and sugar. Very sweet, like children's cough syrup.
M: Slightly thin body.
D: You must like sweet beers to enjoy this one.

Red color, beautiful, with a compact pink foam.
At the smell, cherries. Sugary.
Same notes in the taste, with just a little bit of sourness. Not cloying, anyway.
Fit as aperitif, drinkable, but for sure not a traditional kriek.
Sugary and sweetened.
Just a hint of sourness.

the champagne of kriek beers, its deep red like bull´s blood, spontaneous fermentation, like wine, its smell presents wheat, cherry, malt, hops; taste ample harmonious, a little metalic; good for cheese, and german cuisine, drinkabilty over the average, because is like appetizer; try with goblet. 78% recommended.

A- White lacing with mild retention on a blood red colored beer. Looks like something you would drink on halloween to simulate blood or something.

S- Wow, wayy too sweet for me. i have a huge sweet tooth and this is too much for me.

T- like a liquid cherry jolly rancher. way too sweet, luckily it finishes fairly clean so it doesnt stay with you.

M- very light and delicate, not too dry.

O- Too sweet for me, ill pass.

Green cork and caged 37.5cl bottle, best before Sept 09, drank May 09. Poured into a 'Palm' tulip shaped glass.

Rose wine look about it, pinky red, with a thin white head that became a wisp and collar very quickly.

Sweet cherryade smell, but with a sour twist too.

The taste was also sweet and sour, very cherry and getting more sour as the beer warmed.

A little on the thin side when compared to others within this style. It is almost watery once you get through the fruit flavours.

The sweet and sour mix suits my palate and I can see traditionalists pooh-poohing the sweetness and wanting more sourness, but I thought it fine.

I had this on tap at De Muze in Antwerpen. It's a dark red carbonated candy in a glass. I really wanted to like this - I expected it to be more complex... To me, this is not much better than the very commercially available Lindeman's. It tastes artificial. This is a beer for the non-beer drinker at your party. Well, I will give fruit lambics another try with the near 10-year-old kriek I recently acquired.

G: Duvel Tulip

A: Dark pinkish red body that allows light to escape around the edges of the glass. Pour with a nice two finger white head with moderate lacing and retention. Leaves amazing lacing, even the beer coming back down after a drink sticks to the glass.

S: Strong sweet cherry candy aroma and not much else.

T: Such a strong front of sweet cheery with a following of sourness. Although it's only one flavour the sweet and sourness makes it seems as two.

M: Medium body and light carbonation. It's very light and crisp while leaving a sweet and sour finish. Reminds me of a cherry sour patch kids candy.

D: I wanted to try this since it's my first lambic and I'm impressed. It seems like it's just liquid cherry candy, but I'm intrigued by the style and will seek out more.

If this beer was cheaper I'd by it again, but at the moment I cannot justify the price.
