3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. It pours a very bright pink color with a lot of effervescence. The fizzy white head dissipates rather quickly. The aroma has some sharp mineral acidity with a TON of old cheese and a little strawberry and cherries. The flavor is light and airy with some rich cherry and cheesy funk. Nice tartness that stops short of being sour. Pretty light on the palate for the ABV with a nice bretty, cherry finish. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge thanks to Colin for sharing this bottle a few weeks ago. Nose is strong, ripe cherry with a focus on the pulp rather than skin or pit. Lively lactic acidity with no acetic. Bright lemon behind the cherry. Really quite nice and very, very drinkable. Could have used a bit more funk, but otherwise no real complaints.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is clear cherry red with a right white head. Nose is woody and dusty with a nice fleshy cherry note and a bit of lacto. Taste is fairly sour, meaty body with balanced carb. Cherries are very fleshy and ripe, more lacto. Dusty flavors are more subdued, cherries are rather bright and sourness is strong but pleasant.

Bottle poured a pinkish red color. Smell of lambic yeast, funk and yeast. Flavir was a.mixture of cherry and watermelon which the latter was weird... decent kriek esc, but fell short of the mark

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazy amber red, thin white film, light effervescence. Light celery and heavy egg brett, tons of dark cherry, arsenic pith. Flavor is similar, light dough and green vines early before woody cherry emerges mid and a pith arsenic bitterness in the end, eggy brett all throughout. Carbonation needs thinning.
