The nickname for this beer at my bar is "Cherry Battery Acid" - I’ve had nothing quite so tart. Still, amazing.

Smaller bottle, corked and caged. Murky purple-red pour with a low pink head. Spicy cherry and light yeast, dry finish. I like krieks!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a snifter. I drank this one right after the Geuze. When I opened this one it shot the cork out of the bottle and left a dent in my roof...
A - Pours dark red with a one and a half finger tall light pink colored head leaving small streaks of lace down the glass. With all that carb I am seeing small bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass for the duration.
S - Smells of tart cherries, musty funk, wet hey, light lactic sourness, and some dry oak. Smells like your typical kriek to me.
T - Starts off with lots of tart cherries slowly giving way to a mix of horse blanket funk, damp earth, dry oak, and some lactic sourness. The finish is quite dry mixing with some musty funk and tart sweetness from the cherries, lingering on the pallet for some time.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderately high carbonation. Very dry finish with a touch of sweetness. This one clearly had to much carbonation.
O - I am not going to knock this one very much for its explosive carbonation because the taste was pretty good. I will have to grab another bottle of this in the future to give it another try.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 4/18/2032. Cork nearly popped itself off, but I caught it with the cage. Pours hazy dark ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and rocky pink head with insane retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Beautiful. Aromas of big sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, musty wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, musty wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Fair amount of fruity/earthy tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, cherry skin, green apple, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, pepper, wet basement funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding complexity and balance of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel flavors; with an awesome sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an oudstanding kriek lambic style. All around awesome complexity and balance of funky/earthy yeast, sour cherries, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the modest acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

Klar rød med lavt rosa skum. Overraskende lite lukt av denne krieken. Noe bærlukt, men mer sur enn søt lukt. Syrlig, sur smak. Kort tørr ettersmak

Huge thanks to Mario from Dva Tona. Red body, pinkish long lasting thick head. Very funky cherry aroma, nothing more, nothing less, again heavily funky taste, with very, very pleasant cherry notes, slightly salty. Not extremely complex but damn lovely.

Een van de lekkerste bieren dat ik ooit gedronken heb. Echt een aanrader, een pak beter dan hun oude geuze
