Have to admit I don't know Krieks very well but this is too sweet for my blood.

A: The beer is clear dark red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high pink head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet cherries are present in the nose.
T: As in the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of cherries and has a moderate amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has
O: This beer is very easy to drink. It seems to have a good balance between the cherries and sweetness, but the cherry flavors seem like they are a little artificial.

Pours a deep cherry red with a light pinkish head. The aroma is heavy on the cherries but also some lambic bugs at work here. The flavor has sweet and sour cherry notes, leaning toward sweet, but still a lambic tartness that rounds out the beer. The finish is sweet to dry cherries with minimal funk. Still hits the spot when I want something in this style, and light enough on the palate and alcohol content to be an ideal breakfast or brunch beer. Enjoyable.
