3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tulip. 750mL and best before 09 2015.
3.5 A: First pour gives a well hazed not-quite-ripened plum color. Two fingers of pink tinted, creamy/frothy head. Retention is perhaps a touch below average and very little lacing is left.
4.5 S: Itís hard to say whether there is more cherry or more funk in this, but Iím glad that thereís lots of both. Tart cherry is plentiful. Musty basement type funk with rotting wood, sweat socks, and thoroughly used bath towel. Not very acetic, but lots of lactic tanginess. Very nice.
4.0 T: This is a very well balanced kriek. The sourness doesnít turn your intestines into out, but it does offer enough to scratch the itch. Tart cherries are abundant with lactic acid galore. Musty funk again, but with a heavier dose of fruitiness. Very tasty, but missing something underneath that is present in the nose.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. The carbonation could be spritzier and the mouthfeel creamier.
4.0 D: Tasty, well balanced kriek. I might pick up one to age.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at Moeder St Gilles. Pours deep and dark red with a small pink head. Nose is quite simply, sour cherries. Very rich and dominant. Tast is sweet with an earthy bitter balance that gives way to some small sourness in the end. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth, great aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Nice packaging. Pours a very pink, fizzy body and quickly diminishing light pink head. Strawberry, cider vinegar, fresh herbs. First a bit of sweetness but then a full on fruity sourness that is quite delicious. Arguably not as complex, but for me it can totally stand up to the amazing Belgian sour and geuze brewers that are now so sought after. (75cl bottle, reasonably priced)

Pulled from my shelf of Belgian beers that Im sicking of looking at in my basement and was pleasantly surprised. Really great cherry flavor with a nice crisp tartness. Light body and drinkable with a subtle funkiness.
