Poured from bottle into tulip glass, colour is an attractive red colour with a head of pinkish foam, good film retention. Clear and bright.
S - sweet candied cherries. Like the snow cone syrup, quiet sweet and a bit artificial feeling, some slight sour funk, a bit vegetal.
T - starts with a balanced sharpness, bit of tartness which then fades as it becomes more sweet. Some lemony cherries, some strong sweetness to it, quite candied, but it does have enough carbonation to manage to clean it off, finish is quiet and light.
M - very light bodied. With a hint of tartness, moderate to high carbonation making this a refreshing aperitif.
Overall this has a mild tartness, lacks any real sour character, and has such a candy cherry sweetness it is a bit cloying if not for the carbonation to clean off the finish. Quite a light beer, only a slight oak character, it's a bit of a fruit bomb but makes a pleasant refreshing aperitif, would want to restrain myself to one though, it's more balanced than the smell would indicate and makes a refreshing if overall if mostly exciting Kriek.

Bottle at reffer temp into a goblet.
Head small (<2 cm), white with pinkish tinge, creamy, mostly diminishing.
Body clear, light red (not pinK), light to medium palate, watery to creamy.
I first had this beer at Belgo Centraal in the Covent Garden region of London. It was a fantastic introduction to lambic and kriek beers. Then it seemed to disappear for a couple of years. Now it's back as a mass-produced product complete with artificial flavoring and color. Sad, really, that it's no worse than Bud.
