Bottled at a beer festival somewhere? A red colour with a pinkish head. A great balance sweet/sour balance. A really nice Kriek. If you find the true Lambics too sour & the Lindemans too sweet, this my friends is your answer.

Murky dark red body, tall head. Wood, cherry, and funk in the aroma. Taste starts out with a very nice rounded cherry-fruityness, then finishes bone-dry with pleasant acidity. Low CO2. A pleasant surprise.

[588-20070908] 1pt9.4floz @ Sourfest 2007 (Buffalo, NY, w/ rudolf, frylock, IPFreely, jerc, swoopjones). Deep cherry fruit aroma with malty wood alcohol. Cloudy, dark red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Old musty cherries continues in a particularly sour flavour. Medium-full body has quite a dry finish. Nice sour characteristics.

Pours beautiful red with an off white head. Aroma very strong and a bit off putting. Taste very sour but without the depth of other good Kireks.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml Bottle (Bottled 07/2004) - Poured a dark reddish crimson with a little creamy, fluffy off-pink-white head, all kinds of black particles floating around in it (especially the last pour of the bottle). Looks great. Smells of cherries, other fruits, earth, oak, funk, and sourness/acidity. Taste is what I have come to expect from these types of beers - a very authentic, non-artifical, cherry flavor, which isn’t too sweet followed by a tart, sour, and slightly bitter aftertaste. My only complaint with this beer is it really too good of a mix between the two - such that both tasted a little dulled - still very good though.

Bottle @ Rudolf’s ’Sourfest’. Murky tomato juice like body with a quick massive head that erupts out of the bottle then fades away to very little. Musty, light barnyard funk in the aroma, not a lot of fruit presence. Sourness is relatively restrained though still quite present, very light cherries. A decent, relatively accessible Kriek. 7/3/7/3/15

Hazy reddish of color with a reddish head. An aroma of horse, sour berries and sour toes, no sweets. A flavor of fruits and fruitstones, notes of sweets, nice sour - wellbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Pinkish haze, silky head, acetic nose. Not a cherrydrop in sight. The-right-side-of-vinegar lambic sharpness. Sherbety acid, very distant fruit. Teaspoons of soil. Certainly a lick of barrel. Could use an infusion of... cherryness. Authentic? No doubt about it. But I needed a Gaviscon chaser just to get through this one. Not a complex beer.
