375 ml. bottle split by 3. BBF 14/02/2021. Colour is incredible, extremely dark ruby red wine, amazing, head unfortunately does not last which is sad because it looks like raspberry mouse, this has to be one of the most incredible looking beers out there. Nose is pure cherries, light iron, pure cherry juice, mild tart and cherry jam. Taste is incredibly big on cherry juice (almost a bit what 3F Intense Red did with kriek’s), tastes like the whole of a cherry, the pit and lots of the skin as well, some bitter skin and touch of iron, spices, hint of wine and red grape skins, cherry overpowers virtually all Spontan notes, light sourness and nice tang + touch of oak. Pure juice body, touch lighter carb. Very nice, Spontan beers to be becoming more interesting lately. Dry.

Served in a tasting glass the Firestone Walker Beer Fest. From notes. Reviewed 1 June 2013.

Ruby-clear and absolutely gorgeous. It smells like tart raspberries, and tastes tart but sweet, with rich berries and a deep, engaging flavor. I loved it -- this is an excellent kriek.

First off, this looks way different than what I expected. I was expecting a lighter reddish color with a pinkish head (usually what I see in a kriek) but this is a deep, midnight purple with a pink/purple/strawberry milkish head with a bit of white on top.

The nose is oddly fantastic. At first it just smelled like a sweet red wine to me but as I really got into it there are notes of banana, grape, dark cherries, strawberry and a hint of vinegar that stings the nose.

The taste is an explosion of juicy, fruity flavors. Grape juice, blueberry, slightly tart honeycrisp apples, tart cherry juice, a bit of vinegary tartness and a hint of banana on the back end. Amazing.

This is pretty full bodied for a kriek. The tartness is just the right level and it feels like real fruit tartness instead of that over exaggerated tartness in some sours (which I also love). Delicious, juicy, tart and full. Fantastic combination.

The pour was slightly effervescent with a rich ruby color and a raspberry tinged pink foam. The beer was insanely opaque, no light shined through it. Seriously one of the prettiest beers I have ever seen! I really love the contrast between the color of the body of the beer and the foam on top.
Wow. Insanely intense and complex. I can actually smell tanins, funk ( perhaps this is the so called horseblanket Michael Jackson described because its a bit gnarly but that's ok because I like it!), perfumed cherries and a hint of oak.
The tanins in this beer hit my tougue and were quite drying. And a huge amount of astringency hits as well, It almost reminded me of a merlot with a hint of cherry juice. There definitely was a hint of soil as well. The mouthfeel actually hits you before the flavors do. Perahaps this could use a bit of age to round out the pits even more?
Overall an excellent beer. Insanely rich. I highly recommend drinking it in smaller portions to fully savor it as this is definitely a sipping beer. I am also impressed that at almost 9 percent alcohol this beer showed no trace of hotness.
