Kriek Lambic

Lindeman's Kriek Lambic

Brouwerij Lindemans Kriek Lambic

Everyone always makes such a fuss about kriek lambic but it's just slightly alcoholic cherry juice innit? I mean they make such a big deal here, even with the packaging. There's a crown cap as well as a small cork. TWO CLOSURES . . . it's like doubling up, no fun for anyone.

Deep red in colour, this is glorified cherry drank at its best. Someone remind me why this is still considered a beer?! Drink it well chilled or don't bother, because the sweetness is cloying, the flavours are childish, and maybe the Belgians aren't as good at this stuff as you think they are.
