3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 12/1/12 from a bottle. Pours cloudy deep brick amber with a thin pink head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is funky cherry with cinnamon oak and a dry vinous note. The flavor is nicely sour with all of the tart cherry, funk, dry wine, and cinnamon oak from the nose. The body is medium and tannic with just lighter than average carbonation and a long sour cherry and vinous oaky and tannic finish.

Poured a dark red with a light pink head. Aroma was light but wonderfully pleasant, with notes of cherry, wood, and a sugary sweetness, perhaps marzipan. Flavor had added a subtle funkiness to the cherry component, with more vanilla and wood. Palate was light and crisp-- a really refreshing kriek. Not earth-shattering, but yummy.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy cherry color with a thin bubbly head. Unfiltered cherry flavor. Very sour, but nicely so. Rich cherry pulp. Slight flemish funk but mostly a clean sour. Had from the same barrel twice and has gotten more complex and sour with age.

Draught at Pre-ZBF 2010. Murky reddish with laced head. Great aroma of ripe fruits, vanilla, oak and spicy coconut mix. It’s quite unique. The aroma shows through in flavour as well. The balance is superb but my only flaw is that it tends to finish on a strangely sweet and sour note. Perhaps it’s a little ’ripe’ at the moment. A nice interesting brew.
