4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle into a tulip.
Pours a clear deep ruby red with a half finger reddish-tan head. Decent head retention forming a thin cap over the beer but lacing is practically nonexistent.
Aroma is nearly all cherries. Very reminiscent of cherry Kool-Aid. There are some Belgian Lambic undertones, however, with horse blanket and barnyard letting you know this isnít a soft drink. Really a unique, inviting aroma.
Flavor carries over the characteristics of the aroma with sweet cherry juice along with tartness contributed by the cherries. However underneath the cherry is barnyard funk very typical of a Lambic. This serves to well balance out the fruit and add complexity. While this beer is on the sweet side it never gets cloying and the tartness really helps drinkability. Finish is only slightly sticky and a little drying.
Overall, I am very impressed with this beer and wish I would have opened it up over the summer when it was warmer. The alcohol is nowhere to be found and this is really a guzzler. I really need to seek out some more Krieks and see how this stacks up.

Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... Aroma of black cherries, unlike any kriek Iíve had on this trip... Dark brown in color like a dubbel, but with a pink white head... Flavor is black cherry through and through, with a sweet finish and palate... Not sour at all... Like halfway between a kriek and a dubbel... Weird

Bottle - Pours a deep red with a quickly dissipating head of large bubbles. Strong cherry aroma. The taste is a bit sweet and somewhat cloying, but I enjoyed this as a change of pace. I liked this overall.
