4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark red with purple highlights, small pink head that recedes quickly. Aroma is intense (no pun intended) cherry, blueberry, cranberry, winey character and light funk. Taste is once again very fruity, light acidity and no real sweetness other than the fruit’s. Carbonation is low-med. Very easy drinking, yet complex. I really like the young lambic profile. My favourite kriek to date.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Very deep ruby colored with dark pink fizzy head that lasts only a few seconds. Massive cherry, sour red berries, light funk, sour grains, very light wood at the end. Starts tart fruity and goes into a long, medium strong sourness. Ends with a sour and light bitter finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Massive beer, the fruit is a bit overpowering but the taste is really good.

One of the most expensive beers I have eve purchased. Like everything from this brewery, it is excellent. Rich cherry and moderately sour, not as sour as I expected, rather, lots of fruit in the aroma, flavor, and even on the palate. The sour yeast is there, but this is not as sour as some of their other beers. Dark red color, this is a fantastic fruit lambic.

375ml bottle from MOMH. Crazy looking pour, like a good merlot but with a bright pink head that looks like a little girl’s princess-themed bedroom. Aroma of intense tart cherries, almonds, cherry pits. Light carbonation. Intense sourness, then lightly sweet but tart cherry, light barnyard funk but always second place to the fruit. Lives up to the name.
