3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle shared by JStax- thanks again for these treats! Pours a hazy, pale grapefruit color with a small white head. Aroma of cherry, sourdough, plenty of funk, oak, floral notes, and even a suggestion of spice. Flavor of cherry, oaky funk, florals, dough, and lemon. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, tart mouthfeel. I differed with JStax in opinion on this; Red was my favorite, with Cerise last and Resurgam in the middle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours light reddish orange, very cloudy. Very tart aroma with a touch of real cherries. The palate is light and spritzy like a real Lambic. I was expecting more of a sour brown, but this is not the case. Very sour and wild champagne-like flavor with a very tasteful addition of cherry. I can’t rave enough about the smart useage of fruit on this one. Excellent kriek, could pass for an authentic Belgian example.

Bottle from Tommy, thanks a lot! Pours a pinkish salmon with a small white head and low lacing. Aroma of sweet cherries, chezzy, cinamom, funk. Taste is about the same with light acetic notes and more prononced cinamom notes. Low body and medium carb. A good kriek (kinda) but with a different twist.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks James! Clear bright salmon color with a small white off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of intense sweet cherries, cinnamon, cheesy notes and light tartness. Taste is moderately sweet and sour with sweet cherries, cheesy notes, light tartness, light acidic presence and woody notes. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Slightly dry. Alcohol is really well hidden. Another good Sour from Allagash, but I preferred Coolship Red much more than this one. Good balance between sweetness and sourness. Not a fan of the cinnamon aroma in this one.
