Pours with a dirty brown head that settles over almost opaque dark, dark red liquid. Nose is a super delicious blend of tart cherries backed with yeastiness and some malt. Taste is sweet but not too sweet cherries, souring after swallowing. Warming taste of alcohol follows & finishes up dry and bittersweet. This is a winner on all fronts, an outstanding Kriek that's not soda-pop sweet like Lindemann's can be.

Cherry friggin' pie! No two ways about it, this is a serious cherry beer. And actually quite nice; a terrific dessert beer. Quite ruby in color -- no mistaking the cherries here. Smell is cherry pie, made with real sour cherries. The taste is full and rich and thick. There's a huge malt backbone to this beer (it's really not a lambic, but rather a Belgian brown ale infused with cherries), which provides a beautiful balance to the cherry tartness. It's probably the best kriek I've tasted.

Cherry. Cherry. Cherry. THE cherry beer. Cloudy. Deep brown with a reddish cast and highlights. The initial off-white head dies shortly leaving a limited collar and no lace. The aroma is bold but limited to sweet cherry. The body is surprisingly full, and smooth in the mouth. The flavor starts dry and tart, loaded with cherry flavor. There's a more natural cherry flavor and some darkish malt in the middle. And, of course, there's cherry in the finish along with a nice little malt note. Although this has a really wild cherry-candy flavor, it's not as sweet as some brands which will go un-named. You know who they are. On the other hand, it is a bit one-sided without the full, brash, lactic sourness that the truly great Krieks have. A very nice apertif or after-dinner drink. Worth trying, but not really worth seeking out.
