From the bottle, it pours a hazy pinkish color with a light pink head. In the nose, a touch of cherries. In the mouth, malt with cherries and a touch of sour - just right! Yum!

On tap at Mort Subite Austin.

This beer may appeals to the masses but off style and not appealing to me. 3.25

A - Pours a dark red to black, opaque with a three finger off white head. Great lacing. 4.0

S - Aromas of cherries and lactic acid. 3.75

T - Cherries and slightly sour. A sweet tart. 3.5

MF - Too creamy and smooth. I love a creamy beer when properly balanced with tartness, alcohol, etc., but this is not one of those times. 3.0

Tis a fantastic brew.

Pours as you expect, cherry-ade little head, but nonetheless the body is deep and rich.

Aroma is oozing cherries, bursting from the glass.

Taste is fantastic, it is one of the better kriek lambic's, very fruity and not tart at all.

Feel is a touch artificial, like a cheap cola I guess, but it does leave a very pleasant aftertaste.

It is pretty fine if you're into your fruit beers. Not my cup of tea, but in the pursuit of reviewing everything Belgian, it comes with the territory.

25cl bottle at Cafe de la Gare. Clear ruby with a pink head. Smells of cherries, with some additional notes of lactose and bubblegum. The taste follows the same notes, with some additional honey. A bit too sweet, but, nonetheless, not a bad beer.

disclosure: best by date is 01/2015.
displays no signs of oxidation in the nose or palate. pours ruby red with a thin head that dissipates into a lasting thin layer. lacing is present as consumed. a bit cloudy but clears up as it warms. sour cherries dominate the nose with barnyardy, earthy notes and some bubble gum also present. body is medium and texture semi-creamy. carbonation moderate. a tart but not overwhelmingly so astringency. the flavor is all fruit balanced by the tart (would not call it sour) element. no noticeable bitterness and nothing from the oak. maybe the ageing is just a way to get the bacteria from the wood. finishes dry with lasting tartness. - I enjoyed drinking this and getting out of my comfort zone of American and other Belgian styles.

Nice ruby color and great fluffy pinkish head. Smell is a bit artificial cherry flavors. Reminds me of a cherry flavored lollipop that had a chewing gum inside or was it a sour patch? Long time gone. Taste follows nose. Quite sweet with some tartness at the very end. Again memories of childhood. I think this very much like an alcopop rather than traditional kriek, gueuze or beer. It is not awful though. It works well as an apertiv or with desser
