Clear ruby red colour with no head. As expected and a truly stunning colour.
Mildly tart aroma with a nice dose of barnyard funk. Quite fruity whith the cherry really showing off. Good.
Big punchy tartness which supports the really good Bing cherry flavour. Lots of great fruit with just a hint of funk. Really, really good.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Solid.
One of the better sours I’ve had in recent times. Really big, fresh fruit flavour despite 13 months of aging.
Serving type: on-tap

This review is for how it was served in a bottle.
I had a chance to try it tapped at the DM anniversary, and it was much better there.
The low carbo and appearance is attractive and gives you a very dark red cherry look.
Tasted the cherry's up front but the alcohol took over a bit. At first i thought that was the point for this drink, until i had it on tap.
Either way it's a solid drink but i preferred the tahoma kriek over this one.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
taster glass; from notes.
Dark cherry red with no head.
Lots of sweet cherry, blended with lactic sourness.
Medium bodied, mild fizzy-foamy carbonation.
A good kriek, as noted in other reviews, I would have liked an earthier, more solid base to tie the sweet and sour notes to.

A: Apricot in color, low carbonation, medium-low clarity. Syrupy.
S: The bing is a unique cherry. Pronounced fruitiness (and not just cherry!) with a sharp lactic zing. The sweet/sour interplay in this beer gives it a slightly acetic edge which detracts from the fruit. It does have a slight solvent quality.
T: Bright bing cherry flavor with strong sourness. The booze is quite noticable, I think they could scale back the abv a few points. Dont get much brett character, which I think would help the strong flavors in this beer meld together. The cherry flavor is unique and huge, so points there.
M: This growler had gone a bit flat by the time I got it, a pretty syrupy beer for a 'kriek'.
An interesting beer featuring an interesting cherry.
Serving type: growler
