Mort Subite Kriek & Framboise

Two Mort Subite lambic beers we picked up weeks ago:

Kriek (Cherry)

Colour: clear cherry red. When I popped the cork, there didn't appear to be a lot of pressure but it foamed out of the bottle quite a lot.

Aroma: light cherry

Taste: A tart cherry soda.

ABV: 4.5%

Overall: I liked it, but it's pretty far from what I'd consider a beer. I think it would be extremely refreshing on a hot summer day.

Framboise (Raspberry)

Colour: Clear raspberry red(?)

Aroma: light raspberry

Taste: raspberry! A little tart with a dry finish.

ABV: 4.5%

Overall: Pretty much the same opinion as the cherry. For some reason the raspberry was about 40-50 cents more than the cherry. My wife and I both liked the cherry better.

A humorous note... if you run the name through Google Translator, it means: Sudden Death.
