3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, best before end of 2021. Pours reddish in color with a thin whitish head. Sour notes mixed with some sweeter notes of cherries in aroma. Tart mouthfeel. Wow, has to be one of the most tart krieks I’ve tasted so far. And yet there’s that kriek sweetness in taste as well. Nice. Sour, some cherries and even perhaps some lemony hints in aftertaste. Delicious. Sweeter towards the end.
