750mL b1 thanks to writerljberg and Travlr. Pours a full haze deep red to near purple, muddier pour, weaker foam. Nose is sharper Drie Fonteinen Kriek style with pithy black and Scharbeekse cherry, phenolic compounds, fresh raspberry, freshly baked cherry pie. More intense and more lambic/kriek in profile. But not as bright or focused as the Four Play nose. Taste is juicy strawberry, raspberry, much harsher acid component than the Four Play with intense lime and saltwater. Overall, an amazing kriek and very Belgian lambic in execution. But next to the Four Play, I thought this was too aggressively sour and not as integrated.

2013 release. Pours a cloudy pinkish hue with a medium to small white swirling head. A big sour and woody nose with berries. The flavor was excellent: reminds me a bit of unblended lambic with fruit added, very tart, sweet berries and tart cherry, very woody, tart and dusty. Very drinkable.
