Pours a nice red color with a medium head that fades quickly. Nose is more towards a cherry syrup than real cherries, no noticeable lambic funk. Taste is overly sweet in my opinion, a little artificial. Can't say there is really anything that would make me want to go back to this. If you want a sweet kriek, Lindemans, while not exactly great, is certainly a better choice.

Pours a pretty clear red color with pink head. Cherries on the nose, sweet cherries, and a little funk; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet with cherries.
