0.375 l corked and capped bottle from P&M Getränke, bottled on 14/5/2014. Clear, deep red with a huge, frothy, quickly diminishing, pinkish white head. Slightly funky, sourish-fruity and vinous aroma of sour cherries, redcurrant, raspberries, oak and leather. Slightly funky, sourish-fruity taste of sour cherries, redcurrant, raspberries, oak and leather, followed by a long, heavily sour and slightly vinous finish. Thin to medium body, effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Very sour and oaky kriek, almost nothing sweetish in it. Not as complex and sophisticated as expected but quite intense and, of course, very refreshing.

2010 cork. Thanks Moj! Medium sour and sweet cherries. A touch of the signature Cantillon funk, that Im not huge on, but covered up nicely by the sourness. Think I almost enjoyed this more than having fresh LPK. I guess aging these pays off nicely.

Pours a mostly clear orange tinted pink with a fizzy light pink head with little lacing. Aroma sour cherries with light oak and funk. Taste similar to nose with medium tart cherry juice and skin flavor, mild oak dryness and mild musty funk flavor. Light bodied with effervescent carbonation with a slight bite. Very nice balance of flavors but a bit too tart to be highly drinkable. Still very enjoyable.

Thanks Josh. Pours a great berry color with a pink fluffy head. A huge funky tart aroma. A ton of funky flavors mix with the cherry tartness. Really good.

This kriek is DRY. It will suck the moisture right of of your tongue with a nice tartness and cherries.
