Ruby red color with a thick reddish, white head. Sour cherry aroma with a strong notes of something sweet. Flavor is tart, sour cherry but not overwhelming. Actually fairly easy drinking with a clean finish. A little sweet aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of sour cherries, cough drops and medium acidity. Flavour is dominated by sour and sweet cherries upfront, followed by moderate acidity. Not overly complex but pretty thorough on the tart cherries. Decent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the brewery, this pours a ruby red with a pinkish head that quickly diminishes, leaving no lace of which to speak. The nose is of Bing cherries and apple cider vinegar. Flavors of sour cherries, unripened Granny Smith apples, light cider vinegar notes and lemons finish very acidic, of predominant unripened Bing cherries... sour, long and lingering. The bright, juicy mouthfeel is accompanied by a medium body, semi-zesty carbonation, and refreshingly active on the palate. What a nice take on an oak-aged Kriek, reinvented by New Belgium to make a "Transatlantique" Kriek. Kudos!!

I'm a sucker for Sours and this is no exception. The aroma is that of a cheap red wine, but the taste is not. It hits you with a nice sour and cherry and then the sour builds. The only thing I don't like is the sweetness left on the palate. It only exists for the first couple sips though.
