Big nose of fruit and cherry, a little medicine but in a good way. Luscious color - beautiful! Big full mouth that shoots a stinging sourness into all corners of the mouth. Wow

Deep mahagony deep red color. Small pink laces on top. Deep sour cherry nose, very intense. Nice sour, but not overpowering sour cherry taste, medium tart peak, lingering ebbing down aftertaste. Builds up , nice one

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased at France 44 in Minneapolis. The pour is mostly clear golden ruby with a smallish slightly off white head. The aroma is cherry fruit and skin, tart sour and bit of lemon citrus. The taste reflects the nose, with big cherry fruit, earthiness from the skin, the tart, the lemon acidic sour and a oak barrel in the finish. The palate is medium bodied, active fine carbonation and the bright fruit and funk in the finish. Tasty Kriek.

750 ml bottle to tulip (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a translucent dark ruby with very light pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart and funky with a strong but pleasant cherry and oak presence. Tastes like it smells with a nice, tart mouthfeel. A great Kriek!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Dark ruby, large bubbled puffy strawberry head dies fast to white ring, oily cap. Tons of rubber in the nose, cherry flesh with light rubber and arsenic hints, a surprising cinnamon note. Juicy front palate is acidic, acetic and citric, tons of lemon and cherry juice with more of the surprising cinnamon and dough sweetness, faint plasticity mid with acetic growing in the sharp finish.

> High level 3F style inky kriek
[ Bottle ][ 75cl ][ MrChopin @ Belmont Station OR ][ $25 ][ Duvel Green Tulip ][ 6/8/14 ]
>> Thank you Kevin. Pours clear inky purple, minimal foam. Nose is Belgian kriek, 3F or Girardin type, cough drop, Sucrets, anesthetic, flashes of dark cherry pie, cherry meat. Taste is salty, cinnamon, high acid, low viscosity, prickly bubbles, low acetic, big citric lemon, not as leathery or complete lactic as Cantillon, a bit too sour with no pithy cherry meat that really makes Cantillon LP Kriek the bar for all Kriek. Extreme citric makes this a lemon forward sour instead of cherry. Still, it isn’t too phenolic or band-aid heavy making this an upgrade to 3F’s krieks.
>!< salty, low acetic
