Bottle: Poured a deep red color Kriek with a nice large pink foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart cherry notes with light oak and funky notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix of fresh cherry notes with plenty of tart notes, some oak and light funky barnyard notes are also perceptible. Body is above average for style with good carbonation. Refreshing with some complexity and huge cherry flavours.

Bottle. Pours a reddish color. Very dark red. Aroma is a disappointment. It is clearly going to be sweet. More Lindemans than anything else. Sweet, cherry. There is a little bit of mustiness and a light tartness but it does not outweigh the sweetness. Lingering sweetness. Not what I am ever looking for in this style.

This beer was brewed again and released as a new batch (I was informed from an on-line Belgian site where purchased) in 2014. Thus, this beer is not retired.

This is the De Koninck Kriek actually brewed at Boon. Pour is mostly transparent with a deep orange color and red ruby hues. the head is light tan and thin in nature. Dusty cob webs in the nose, very dry, some sweet caramel malts, rubbery, and some articifial syrupy cherry. The taste is dry and dusty with a light to medium body. The feel is syrupy to go along with the faint artificial cherry flavor. Some sourness in back, stale tasting and a touch rubbery.

Bottle tasted at Delirium in Brussels. The beer poured a deep shade or red with a nice pink head and tons of tiny bubbles. The aroma was cherry sweet. The taste was sweet, not overly sweet, cherry and some other spice notes. There was also a acidic quality to the beer that helped to balance out the cherry to make it not too sweet for my tastes.
