Today it’s time for this blog’s first guest review, as my girlfriend Pia will be reviewing a kriek (cherry lambic). I’m not a great fan of fruit beers myself, so she will be reviewing this one. This spontaneously fermented beer is brewed with malt, wheat, hops, yeast, cherries, cherry juice, sugar, and cherry aroma. Let’s see what she thinks about it!
|The beer has a nice ruby red color and a pink-colored head, that collapses quickly, leaving some lacing on the glass.|
|Aroma is acidic with tones of cherries (slightly artificial cherry tones).|
|The flavour is similar to the aroma, with a tart cherry flavour (quite natural-tasting) dominating. The beer leaves a strange aftertaste, that is difficult to describe.|
|The beer has light body with a moderate level of carbonation, and it leaves a dry and sour finish.|
|Not the best Kriek I’ve tasted but nice and fresh on a hot day. I like the authentic cherry flavor, even though the beer contains artificial flavouring. Not too sweet but slightly too acidic for my personal taste. Would buy again because of its natural taste and inexpensive price.|
Pia and Mimi reviewing the beer.
Thanks Pia for the review!
