Hanssens Artisinal’s Oude Kriek 6%
Pouring an orange rose with a sour cherry, lightly oaky and earthy funkiness in the aroma. Smells like it’ll be interesting.
Oaky, black pepper funk and ascerbic cherries with a light acidity on a bright drinkable body.
I like it, it’s edgy enough without getting too extreme plus it is reasonably priced.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.375 l bottle from ’belgiuminabox’, best before August 2027. Clear, deep red, no head. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky aroma of sour cherries, redcurrant, sweat, bitter almond and oak. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky taste of sour cherries, redcurrant, oak, a bit of varnish and elderberry, followed by a short, very tart, dry finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and astringent mouthfeel, no carbonation. Due to the lack of any carbonation this feels a bit bland. Taste is still very intense and sour, especially in the finish, but it lacks a final kick. A bit of carbonation would have eased up the acidity as well.

Acidic, tart, yeasty, barnyard, lots of vinegar, not that fruity.
Reddish color, medium head.
Enjoyable and very powerful tartness, low bitterness, not that fruity, a bit too one dimensional.
Medium body, tart finish.
