Pours dark reddish purple with minimal head. Smells of really sour cherry bomb. Taste the same with a little wood.

Bottle shared with my wife. Deep re pour with a small but frothy pinkish head. Nose has tons of fresh cherries and some funk. Taste has cherries, marzipan, almonds, cherry pits. Super good!

Bottle in garden, 7th June 15. Pours bright red, some bubbles. Aroma is sour cherries, some citrus pithe, straw. Taste is rich cherries, slightly sour, not overly, it’s a good beer, but lacks the complexity of some of its peers, enjoyed all the same

Bottle at three men strong tasting. Pours Red with a nice little had. Aroma of tart, cherrys, some fruity bitternes. Taste is the same, very balanced not to sweet, and not tarty. Well done.

Wow.. Disappointed by this one. Not much carbonation. Flat cherry soda. Light funk, super sour. Sort of one dimensional.

0,375l fles gedeeld met remco. Dieprood met nagenoeg geen kraag. Geur is menthol, tabak en kersen. Smaak is mooi vol ziltige met een diepe kersen toon, in de afdronk ook eikenhout. Body is erg vol en de afdronk wat droog.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at ~45 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a deep actually-ruby-red red, and forms a finger head of pink foam which dies swiftly in a rush of fizzing. Carbonation is visible all over the sides of the glass at first, but vanishes before the glass is halfway drunk.
Smell: Sour cherry leaps out of the glass, as one would expect. Beneath the tart fruit, there is a haze of funky mildew, not unlike what one can smell when wandering through a building that has stood abandoned for some time.
Taste: Mildly tart, sour cherries greet the tongue as each sip begins, before fading a bit in the middle to allow shades of mildew through. During the middle, the beer takes on something of a wine character as the funk interplays with the cherries, yielding some almost tannic fruit notes of plum and red grape, with hints of hardwood. By the finish, the tart cherry returns, to leave a lingering memory of sour cherries and gentle, mildewy funk clinging to the tongue.
Mouthfeel: This starts out as a wildly prickly, highly carbonated beer, and becomes nigh completely flat by the end of the glass (which likely helped prompt my "wine character" observation of the taste). It is fairly thin, but does not turn watery, even at the finish.
Overall: An interesting kriek, though at the price point, likely not one I shall repeat. This would be a nigh perfect beer to give to a wine advocate looking into the world of beer.

Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Maybe my palate was a little blown for this one. Ruby and murky with minimal head. Taste was a little astringent (intense??). With Framboos immediately following it, perhaps I was looking ahead to the next match up.
