Ruby color, even a little brown, slightly turbid. Foam slightly pink, very small and very short-lived.
Aroma: sweet cherry compote, feel a lot of sweetness and slight accents guilty.
Taste: more character guilty, it is more dry and sweet compote of cherries, plus light acidity.
Gentian light, stone, high saturation

The Aldi brand of krieks, this local brewery offers a cheap kriek, that tastes pretty ok if sufficiently cooled, considering the price for what you get, a pretty good deal, but don't expect more.

Fruity nose without doubt the cherry juice but not too aggressive and relatively mild. The body is soft, more or less sweet, but usually a mouth and an aftertaste rather "light" which is somewhat reminiscent of grenadine. A beer with little character and a certain flatness in the flavors.
