ketchepillar (1172) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 25, 2014
375 bought a year ago. Surprisingly not that sour. Nice cherry flavor of course. Finish has some garbage though, but in some ways it’s nicely funky.

I had a bottle of this once before in Chicago, which I enjoyed (despite the price). I had this again recently in a blind tasting. I remember it was very cherry, I thought it was going to be 3F Schaerbeekse Kriek. It was just so much cherry juice, all natural and nothing harsh about the lambic. It beat out Lou Pepe Kriek but I still enjoyed Cantillon Kriek .1 more, which is really not much of a difference (unless we think of price).

Suttree (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Travlr - Thanks! The Bride announced that she wanted to save this for a special occasion, which last for about 90 minutes. Ah well...Anyway, this was really good. Very sour, but plenty of cherry flavor. Plenty of balsamic vinegar and red wine notes to really round out the flavor, too. Great stuff.
