3.58/5 rDev -14.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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

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.

4.38/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Poured a hazy cranberry color with good carbonation and a reddish cap that hangs around for a bit
S: Wow. Cherries, hints of raspberry, some funk
T: Immediate attack of red cherries, a blackberry and raspberry for good measure, some light Earthiness, wood, funk, light booze and nice lockjaw bite on the end
M: Pretty acidic, lots of flavor, medium body, relentless pounding of fruits and a little booze sting
O: Very nice overall. I have had this numerous times. I think they hav really dialed this beer in since I first had this in 2011.
