    Here is another guest review from Pia, who will be reviewing another cherry lambic, St. Louis Kriek, that she had in Berlin. This spontaneously fermented beer is matured with the pulp of morello cherries, and should be available to buy in most major supermarkets here in Finland. Let’s see what she thinks about it!

    [easyreview title=”St. Louis Kriek” cat1title=”Appearance” cat1detail=”The beer has a dark ruby red color and a slightly pink head that quickly collapses, leaving a little lacing along the glass.” cat1rating=”4″ cat2title=”Smell” cat2detail=”Strong, at first sour then sweet, essence-like cherry aroma.” cat2rating=”2″ cat3title=”Taste” cat3detail=”Watery taste with a mild taste of cherry, not very sweet nor sour, slight aftertaste of alcohol.” cat3rating=”2″ cat4title=”Mouthfeel” cat4detail=”The beer is light, dry and has a moderately high carbonation level.” cat4rating=”4″ summary=”Fresh and strong taste, that was a bit too artificial for my taste. Would possibly buy again because of pleasant feel and taste that gets better (stronger cherry taste) as you drink it. Maybe mine was slightly too cold?”]

    Thanks Pia for the review!
