Sarlacc83 (1084) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Tap. 2013 vintage. A: Brownish red with light red hints. Off white head. N: Lactic acid, oak, cherry, wine grapes. It says a hint of cinnamon on the menu, but I think they added a jar. Green pepper. What the hell? T: Slightly sour with more of that terrible, terrible cinnamon. M: Oily. On the heavier side where it concerns the body. O: What happened here? Not that I’ve ever been a fan of the Kriek, but c’mon - sweet and spicy go together. Sour and spicy do not.

Corked and caged bottle from Gator Beverage. Poured deep dark red into my tulip with a tall, fizzy pink head that quickly recedes. The head ends up lingering as a very small creamy bubble film on top that is really interesting. Lots of sour cherries on the aroma with some vinegar there, and dry oakiness. Flavor is super sour cherries, with a light vinegar note that is balanced out by the super dry oak flavors. Really nice Kriek that highlights the cherries without being medicinal. Miles better than the Blueberry mess I had last night. Good beer!

750ml bottle pours a deep dark red with an thin off white head. Cherry and oak aroma. Taste is the same gets better as it warms.
