Birra intrigante e seducente come il canto di una sirena, ti avvolge con la sua sinfonia di ciliegie abbandonandoti in un limbo di acidità travolgente e pervasiva, piacevole come un sogno idilliaco. Una kriek davvero impeccabile. Hanssens è un vero maestro.

Pours a deep red with a short off-white head. It has an aroma of dark cherries and some basement funk. The flavor is tart cherries and some funk with a great tart finish over a medium, low-carbonation body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy red with medium pink to purple head that drops quickly. Aroma of cherries, bretta, redcurrant, very fresh. Taste is very sour, fruity tart with a distinct lingering sourness. Almost too much even for me but manages to stay refreshing rather than overbearing. Body is light and crisp with average carbonation.

Beautiful deep red color. With a creamy cherry red head. Funky and lemon zest aroma. Really nice. A sharp sour upfront and goes all the way down. Very good flavors. Really love the sour consistency.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: deep, bloody ruby red, completely opaque with minimal lavender foam on top that quickly fades to a collar. Aroma is juicy cherry, tart & sweet with mild vinegar & some back-end, barnyard & sock-y funk. Taste is super sour, nearly puckering with a huge cherry flavor, notes of vinegar, lactic acid, & some sour lemon flesh. Very mild hay & funk presence. Dry finish. Love the sourness here, great amount of cherry & acidic tartness with nice vinegar-y overtones. Possibly better than Cantillon’s regular Kriek.
