750ml bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee, split with my bride. Pours a deep, hazy, ruby red color with a pinkish head that fade relatively quickly. Aroma is cherry, some oak, some barnyard funk. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is sour, cherry, oak, funk, a little sweet cherry, with a light tart finish. Not as interesting as some other Kriek Lambics, but very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Hopduvel in Ghent. Appearance is very impressive, with a deep cherry-reddish color, and a beautiful big, long staying red, pink head.
Very fruity aroma, of ripe cherries, the cherries really stand out.
Tastes of sweet cherries, very intense, goes along with a decent bitterness, which is for a very long time not as present as the cherries themselves. The supporting tartness brings out the cherries realy good. In the end, bitterness gets stronger and takes over. Overall when you drink this beer, you feel like chewing on ripe cherries, which grow younger and more sour the longer they linger on my tongue.
Fruits are present nearly to the very end. As the beer warms up, it reminds me of summer, because of its somehow warm smell. Carbonation grows more present in the end, revealing the bitterness of this beer.
