Bottle... Poured dark, ruby red with a thin, off-pink head. Sour cherry pie, dry, tart, quite sour with nice candied cherry, and black cherry sweetness. Ripe cherry flavors balance out the acidity quite nicely.

375mL bottle, pours a deep dark pinkish mahogany with a small pink-beige head. Nose is quite funky, with barnyard notes, and loads of unsweetened cherry. Flavour is along the same lines, with barnyard funk, loads of cherries, and a touch of cherries. Medium complexity, with excellent balance and quite a lingering funk. Excellent lambic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a slightly hazy deep cherry red body with a small pink-hued white head. Aroma is sweet cherries, almonds, mild horseblanket, marzipan and hints of citrus and white sugar. Taste is tart cherries, lemon, horse blanket, mild almond nutty tones and hints of red fruits and sour lactic hints. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A kriek that turns out surprisingly sour and fresh compared to the relatively sweet-tuned impression from the aroma up front. Very drinkable, I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark blood red 1 finger pink head. Faded fast. Smells fantastic. Really cherry forward. Light and mildly tart. Taste isn’t bad. It’s more on the sweet side. Tart is there and certainly using other processes but the mouthfeel is nice and residual sugars stick around.
