3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Dark ruby with light pink head. Sweet ripe cherries balanced with some unripe sour ones, black currant, black berries, cherry flavored hard candy. Sweet/sour blend, sweet is stronger but the balance is really good. Wonderful smooth mouthfeel, really creamy and well carbonated. Underlaying minerallike chalky (gueuze like) texture. Best predominantly sweet kriek I recall.

Draft at Tuscarora mill. Pours ruby red with an inch of foam. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Massive cherry notes on the nose. Nice tartness on the tongue which really unlocks the cherry flavor. Finished clean. Lovely example of style.

Robe brune reflets rouges. Nez qui explose sur la cerise puis des notes épicées et boisées. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, de la fraîcheur et de la rondeur et une finale ronde et équilibrée, belle longueur. Une belle bière onctueuse et fraîche à la fois

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sweet, tart, glacé cherry aroma with a clean acidity and an extremely subtle light grain note.
Beautiful deep ruby red with a pink-hue head with extremely good lacing and persistence at the right level.
The flavour is bold with cherries and sweet but balanced by the refreshing acidity. There are subtle grain notes and a deeper complexity to the beer with gentle woody and light almond flavours.
Perfect level of carbonation, fairly high and fine with a substantial substance without detracting from the beer’s refreshingness.
One of my favourite fruit beers. So refreshing whether cold or not so cold and excitingly complex and yet not at all heavy or too much. Fantastic.
