I was honestly disappointed. The appearance was fine. Smell, strong cherry. The taste was faintly like cherry cough syrup. Mouthfeel, light carbonation. Overall, anti-climatic. Starts out decently, but leaves the cheery cough syrup aftertaste on the palette.

Beer soda, sweet lambic. Served in a Lindemann's flute glass. Beer is bright red / ruby pink with a pink head of small bubbles, low retention, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is cherries.

Beer is sweet, like soda, finishes sweet, it is actually sweeter than most sodas I drink, very cherry, mild tartness, mild everything. I enjoy it but it is overpowering. This is a good beer to have around for guests or parents when they come and visit.

A: Nice clear red colour, pink and frothy head, a lot of lacing and good head retention;

S: A very strong and sweet cherry with some hint of a spicyness;

T: Starts with sweet fruit, not just cherry, hints of strawberry and cranberry, but the sweetness along with most of the strong fruit flavours fade and a tartness comes in, although not that sour;

M: Medium bodied, thick and syrupy mouthfeel, decent level of carbonation;

O: Good Kriek if you like it on the sweet side, gives you a strong red fruit, highly drinkable, pretty much a dessert in a bottle!
