Not to tart. Good amount of cherry flavor. Not as big and flavorful as I was hoping. Still, pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: beautiful (in an almost unrealistic way) clear red, with a short-lived electric pink head the color of cotton candy. Aroma: bright cherries in light syrup, a hint of vanilla and almond, a dose of wood and pipe tobacco, maybe some honey, light balsamic demi glace too. Taste: sweeter than anticipated, with minimal cherry tartness but big cherry character, along with a muddle of stone fruit, wood, leather, and a hint of tootsie roll. Finish: slightly earthy, a bit musty, and quicker than expected. Notes: Was thinking this would be more of a traditional kriek, but it was much less tart/sour, and much more in the sweet cherry juice blended with a lager vein. Drank almost like water, but the palate wasn’t all that watery. Not sure exactly what to think of this one. I like a traditional kriek a lot, and this was definitely not that. But I didn’t dislike it either. Bottle from Roots Market.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very thin mouthfeel, but a big massive tart cherry flavor. So addicting. It’s tart and puckering...but in such a good way. This is a fun one to drink.
