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.

1990 vintage

Pours a light cherry brown color with good clarity. White head pours vibrantly and leaves some lace. The aroma has still bright cherry, slight oxidized malt, and a bit of sweetness. Faint lambic character. Light bodied, well carbonated. Still vibrant and full of life, this is a nice little treat.
