3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fancy pink lively head. Quite subtle acidic cherry sourness, like the drying note of oak. Feels well balanced and complex, but in same time very refreshing and mild.
As this is gift, I had only tasting notes, must retry with full version

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.375 bottle from Belgian eshop, Vintage 2012
Aroma of berries(and sour cherries), funkiness, beautiful sourness, maybe some oak-wood. Dark red color with pink head, I really enjoy the appearance of Krieks. Taste of mix berries and some fruits, beautiful tartness and of course very dry. Aftertaste is the same with the taste just a bit more oaky, funky and the tartness calls you to take a second sip after 10-20 seconds.
I would expect less funkiness for that Vintage, fantastic brew! I can’t wait to try the 2011 and 2010!
