Belgian Beer Review: Belle-Vue Extra Kriek

This is a post in the Belgian beer review series.

Belle-Vue Extra Kriek is part of the Belgian tradition of fruity beers. The bouquet is a light version of that of a regular lager, but the taste is rather interesting, as it has more than just a touch of cherry and is rather sweet, with a slightly salty aftertaste. The colour is a little bit like that of rosé wine, but slightly redder. I had heard before that these kind of kriek (cherry in Dutch) beers are favourites amongs women, but I have to confess I like them too.

However, if you like your beer tasting just like beer avoid these.
