Draft sample. The beer is a clear red with a pinkish head of foam. The aroma has jammy cherry with a bit of doughy, grainy stuff going on as well. Somewhat sour taste, but finishes bready. Pretty good, actually.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours clear very dark ruby red color with a 1-2 finger dense pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tart black cherry, blackberry, plum, green apple, red wine, hay, straw, oak, wheat, bread, light vinegar/funk, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tart black cherry, blackberry, plum, green apple, red wine, hay, straw, oak, wheat, bread, light vinegar/funk, light pepper, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate fruity/acidic tartness and light spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of black cherry, blackberry, plum, green apple, red wine, oak, wheat, bread, light vinegar/funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from acidity. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately acidic, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Kriek lambic style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle poured, best before 2032. That was a close one. Pours dark, with a cherry red foam head. Fresh cherries and mixed berry aroma. Flavor is consistent with the cherry pie that I’m used to with a lot of cherry Belgian lambics. This one has a little more tart too it though. Very nice cherry start and finish. Very nice beer.

JaBier (6101) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 11/25/15. Dark red pour with a thick pink head. Aroma of sour cherry, light malt and peppery yeast. Sweet cherry and malt flavor with a sour cherry and vinegar finish. Very sour, but has just enough cherry sweetness in there to please both sets of taste buds.
