St. Louis Kriek

No, not made in St. Louis, but in Belgium. Interesting choice, given the Anheuser-Busch/InBev goings on of late.
Deep garnet color with light pink head. Fairly decent lacing on my tulip glass.
Obviously, I get a good deal of cherry in the aroma, on the sweet side. The taste smacked me in the face with nostalgia: Luden’s cherry cough drops. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, I loved those cough drops. It’s just not what I’d expect in my beer. There’s a bit of tartness in the aftertaste too.
Not all that great, I don’t think. Too syrupy and sweet for me, even if that’s what I was in the mood for.
