3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried on tap at Belmont Station for Puckerfest. It pours a deep red, almost burgundy in color with no head on the color. Nose is predominately vinegar with some black cherry pit character. Flavor is much less focused on the vinegar and more on the cherry. There are some port notes as well. Acetic, moderate mouthfeel, and a long finish. Decent Kriek, not mind blowing but it was awesome being able to try it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PIB, pours a cloudy blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out fuzzy citrus fruits and some moderate wild yeast. Flavour is wild and complex, with some brett-like wild yeast, with probably some other wild yeasts, some feint cherries, and citrus zest. Complex and refined, and very drinkable. Very good wild ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 375mL bottle, vintage 2012 bottled on 01/15/2014.
Aroma is fairly funky with quite a nice barnyard character to it. Moderately strong cherry character with moderate acidity. Light acetic note.
Pours a fairly clear, bright ruby red with a slight orange hue and a moderately sized, fairly thin and frothy, slightly pink head that recedes quickly to the edges.
Flavor is fairly tart with quite a bit of tart cherry character. Medium light barnyard funk with light tropical fruit character. Hints of citrus and acetic acid. Faint hint of a buttery character.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice American "kriek." Lots of cherry notes with decent acidic and Brett complexity. The acidity is definitely strong though.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
tepid cherry, effervescent, puffy large bubbled white head gone fast. Jammy berry nose, light booze with a balsamic twang, arsenic. Lightly Medicinal front palate, jammy cherry and moderate balsamic mid, heavy arsenic adds astringent bitterness and light paper before the juicy finish ends quite dry. Thin and sticky with tons of juicy explosion.

Bright burgundy Batman! Not my favourite Sour but still not unenjoyabeer. Very cherry, but more like a cherry rhubarb pie. Quite sour but also quite one dimensional. A bit of lemon, leather, vanilla and barnyard but mostly sour cherries. Decent. Medium feel and carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Soft Kriek nose, a little tart and a little sweet.   Smells somewhat promising.   Fairly soft on the tongue.   Unripened cherries as well as a bit of even ripened cherries. &nbps Not too sour, or bright.   A softer example.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has a slight fake/artificial sugary aspect to it, a little like Duchesse.   Not all that bright and dry on the finish, which is what it really needs.   Very pedestrian.   Tiz okay.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice. Sourness is puckering, and while a primary note of the taste, isnít overwhelming. Cherry flavor is a bit subdued, but still comes through well.
