4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a mini pint at TJ’s 7th anniversary party. A rare treat on-tap that can not be passed up.
A - Pours bright red with spotty head leaving no lacing at all. I think this was one from the bottom of the keg.
S - Plenty of sour notes up front. Hints of cherries, oak, and plenty of funk permeate everything. Fairly subtle but still very nice.
T - Strong tartness up front slowly giving way to some tart cherrie puree. Finish is strong tartness with plenty of strong cherrie notes. I really like this one a lot but it gets to be a bit overpowering after about half a glass.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Tart finish that fades quickly. Quite pleasant
D - Pretty good. I liked this one a lot. It was tart but still very complex. I have a bottle of this in the cellar, can’t wait to see what that does with some age on it.

Very clear ruby red with some pinkish foam that leaves light lacing. Aroma is musty, fruity and quite funky. A little cheesy. Extremely complex. Very dry palate with excellent balance of tart cherry and lambic flavors. I didn’t think that I liked fruit lambic until I had this one.

Really really really wonderful cherry tart aroma....a little to much in the flavor cuz the tartness looses some punch. just a little too sweet. but other than that very very good beer

Troebel rood bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog, fruitig kersen. Iets te zuur om goed te smaken.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @Quintessence 2014. Kriek qui se distingue par son caractère aérien du froment où le fruité des cerises exacerbe l’acidité des brett. Le corps malté moyen développe plutôt des saveurs de noyau que de chair du fruit. Pourtant elle offe un nez assez fleuri, herbacé peu amer avec quasi pas d’effervescence. Dommage cette acidité qui agresse le palais. Bof :(
