Deep garnet red with a small pink head, gone in seconds. Intense fruitnose (cherry,...) with some old wood ànd alcohol. Superb nose, inviting as none, reminiscent of the real Zottegemse Kriek from Crombé. Sourish-fruity, refreshing with "old cherries", wood, pinch of saffron and redcurrant. Again totally resembling the old Zottegemse Kriek - with just a slightly more watery mouthfeel. Lipsmacking acidity, superbly refreshing. EXCELLENT. Glenn, Davy, Mark, take note (<small> pretty please! </small>). Do a remake of this with a good dose of extra malts in the Kerasus, then barrel-age in the same way. As Struise recreated the original Kapittel Prior with Aardmonnik, so will you have resurrected the Zottegemse Kriek, of fond memory.

750mL courtesy of Travlr. Poured a deep pink/purple with thin bubbles abounding- no real head though. Aroma is outstanding: rich cherry pie, baked sweet cherries, sour cherries. Amazing kriek nose. Taste is a little thin, tart berries, not really full sour, pretty highly carbonated on the palate. Refreshing, not too intense. Could use more time in the barrel to develop a full sourness.

Tolle leuchtend rote Farbe, sauer-fruchtiger Geruch. Der AT ist vollmundig und angenehm sauer! Schöne leichte Kirschtöne, dazu angenehm Säure mit deutlich holzigem Einschlag!

Draft at 2011 Max’s Belgian Fest at 2008 Oak Kerasus: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet toasty caramel and light fruity tart nose with some vinous oak. Starts with average fullness and light carbonation with some oily texture and light caramel and fruity tartness. Finishes drier and oaky with some lingering vinous flavor.
