Su sabor es igual que su aroma, dulce, apenas ácido, y destaca su sabor a cereza. Carbonatación y cuerpo medio. Refrescante. Una muy buena opción para los amantes de las Kriek.

Had on tap. Wow this is so sweet! My teeth might rot out drinking this one with the sugary cherry overwhelming all obstacles. Fizzy like soda. There is some citrus and wood funk, but not enough to balance. If you want a really sweet cherry beer that is light in complexion, this one is for you!

there are lots of kriek listings for these guys, so i am not 100% positive that i am reviewing the one i had under the right heading here, it was sold to me as kriek subite and mentioned oak, so i assume this is the one, but i know they make a few of them with varying levels of maturity and sweetness. the one i had was pretty darn good, well better than the ratings here, with a deep dark blood red color to it, a tall almost nitro looking head nearly perfectly white from the tap, and staying creamy and tall throughout, the proper glassware no doubt helping with that, this is pretty to look at. its smell is intoxicating, sexy cherry, not quite candied but sweet for sure, but with an identifiable lambic character underneath, funky and quite mature to me, obviously woody, some tartness too but not real sour once i start drinking it, pretty good complexity too, surprised this isnt rated better and makes me question if i had a different version of kriek from mort subite. the cherry flavor is dense and natural, sweet and sour at the same time, and definitely leads the charge here, but there is more to it, plenty of funk, bacterial pucker, and lemon notes before all the wood. its smooth and lively, its appreciably low alcohol, and has a nice depth of flavor. sure it might be too sweet to make an evening of, but i like the feel a lot and a glass or two is a treat! a different type of lambic for sure, possibly back sweetened or something, but i dig it.

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.
