2011 vintage consumed on 11/22/13. From the second the bottle opens a wonderful aroma of sour cherries greets the nose. Color is a brightish red. The flavor is an incredibly bright sour with the cherries coming through magnificently without any of the Brett notes than can sometimes overwealm a lesser sour. As perfect an example of a Kriek that there is.

On tap@Borefest: Pours clear deep amber color with tiny tan purple head. Aroma is the best part, funky, with sour cherries, hint of grape, oak, vanilla,...flavor is overall onedimensional but still you can detect the same notes as by aroma. Finish is dry, astringent, tart. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.

At Borefts 2016. Aroma of cherry, oak and tart. Rich flavor of sour cherries, oak, tart, soft wheat and some acid. Nice, but the others are even better.

Tap. Deep ruby color with tan head. Aroma is cherry, a bit spicy. Taste is cherry skin. Medium carbonation. Dry tart finish. Interesting spices. Very nice, Cascade really pulls off Sour Fruit Beers without just copying the Belgian character.
