Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2009
Purchased a 750 ml bottle via Malt & Vine and sampled at Skyview Sourfest II. Pours a hazy dirty red/amber sour brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin film. Aroma of tart cherries, some dark bread, yeast funk, and a touch of oak. Taste is tart cherry, some vanilla, brown sugar and years. Finish has a mild cherry aftertaste and some light yeast. A tad more towards the sweet cherry side but a decent kriek overall.
