3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL corked bottled from Beer Cartel. Bottled 22/5/2015
Amazing looking beer - deep murky scarlet body with a creamy half-inch of pink head persisting.
Funky aroma, a lot going on; ripe cherry, sour cherry/Kirsch, oak, red wine vinegar, barnyard, hard cheese, earthy phenolic spice (Brett?) undertones.
Lean body, moderate acidity with good length, a touch of tannin with reasonably high carbonation.
Bit tighter on the body, not giving away quite as much as the aroma; vinous red cherry, subtle barnyard & funky cheese, touch of toasy oak & citrus rind, with some acetic acid in the works. Reasonably long finish, acidity refreshes, providing good balance.
Solid amount of fruit & funk in this one to make it rather tasty.

Bottle. Pours a dark, cherry color with a nice, reddish head. Sour, cherry type aroma with a malty kick. Sour cherry taste with a dry finish. Very warm beer. Really good balance.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 bottle, pretty young but I sometimes lack some self-control in matters of sour beer. Pours a deep purple with delicate pink foam. Beautiful. Swirl it up a bit for a gorgeous display of deep red to pink tones. Lovely mineral and funk on the nose, cherry and wood as well. Taste is balanced with considerable funk, moderate tartness, sour cherry. Elegant and classic. Looking forward to cracking a more aged one some day.

Bottle - Tart, vinous and sweet cherry. Deep red and cloudy with a thin head. Cherries dominate and are sweet with a touch of tartness. Light acidity and more sweetness,

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks..a vibrant cherry red, thin line of dissipating head on pour.
Smells.. Cherrys, wood, old, musty..
Tastes..the tart and fruity cherry just influences the balance over quality lambic sourness, finishes some wood dryness.. What else could you possibly want from a cherry kriek?!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the December 2014 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a clear dark red color with a small pink head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was chalky and tart with cherry and was a touch medicinal. The flavor was funky and sweet with a strong cherry pie filling presence. Long cherry pie filling finish. Light to medium body. Solid.
