This Lindemans Kriek is a fruit beer for the simple reason that a great deal of fruit was added during the brewing process before it was put for ageing in oak casks. This maturation allows the fruit to brew, therefore granting the beer with a second fermentation.
This beer pours a highly sparkling clear red colour topped by a pink head. It releases very sweet aromas dominated by cherries scents. In the mouth, cherry flavours are predominant but one can also sense wooden hints and slightly acidic notes. This beer is highly enjoyed by the ladies because of its lightness and its very fruity aroma.
It must be poured very chilled at a temperature between 2 and 3°C.
