Excellent if not perfect. Cherries and some sherry aroma notes. Starts out red pour and cherry taste. The oak Barnard and big tartness add to the cherry flavors. Finishes like a good cherry sherry or brandy.

3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek ’14 vintage
Pours a fiery, ruby-red color, with a small, quickly dwindling head.
Offers one of the most perfect aromas I have ever experienced, mainly defined by ripe, slightly earthen cherries. Comes along with a gentle fruit entangled sourness, not too acidic, while exhibiting fermented, ripe fruit the most pleasant way.
Features an incredible soft mouthfeel, bursting with fruit, while providing a refreshing body.
Tastes almost like cherry juice, while being fuller bodied. The tart sourness acts as a peak to the ripe cherry fruits, revealing funky yogurt, a whiff of old, dried lemon peel and incredibly profound cherry stone qualities with marzipan, earth and fruit pulp. Drinks hillariously easy, as the beers sourness is just one tiny part of the overall taste, with a pleasant but naturally fitting fruity sweetness, gently balanced by the leathery tartness. Finishes with even more visible cherry stones and musty malts, wrapped up by cherry pulp, cherry skin and lemon peel, leaving the palate with an enjoyable, gentle sourness.
Easily the most intense appearance of cherry I have ever experienced in a beer. It features cherry from the beginning till the end, while opening with unusually ripe fruits, being able to turn even riper while drinking. Still provides a soft, mineralic mouthfeel, letting the cherries remain enjoyable, while getting joined by crisp lemon, producing a fantastic, irresistable, complex taste.
