New one-but-favourite beer

So I was at the local supermart recently. I went to pick up a four pack of cherry beer and ... what? I like cherry beer! This is Belgium, my local supermart has got an entire aisle of cherry beer, even a shelf or three with raspberry beer!
Anyway, my absolute favourite beer is -no contest- "nen Bangelijke", a microbrew by "het pakhuis" (the warehouse) which is simply astonishing -hence the name-, regardless of the poor reviews written by pansies from overseas who can't handle a beer with an alcohol content close to your garden variety wine.

Well, when venturing into that jungle of masculinity free bottles which is the previously mentioned cherry beer aisle, I thought it would be nice to get a different kind of beer for once, so I picked up a pack of "mort subite eXtreme kriek", the specifics of which are listed on the brewers webpage.
This stuff is so amazing! So go ahead, bring on the "fruit" remarks, joke about pink and carbonated beverages, I don't care.

I am a busch light tallies man (who occasionally spoils himself with coors light) myself but if you enjoy it then that is all that matters.

I'm a huge fan of some of the fruit lambics that are on the market, but those barely qualify as beer. If you don't expect them to taste like guinness or chimay or even PBR... they are enjoyable beverages. A well crafted actual beer with some fruit adjuncts can also be pretty darn amazing so long as the brewer didn't go overboard with the fruit.
