[Suggested Glassware: Flute]
The pour was a clear medium cranberry red with a large (2-3 finger) pink rocky head that diminished at a rapid steady pace, down to a medium sudsy film and had excellent sticky sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of sweet bread malts and a funky barnyard Belgian yeast with notes of cherries, candi sugar and a hint of cask.
The taste was moderately sweet and just a tad malty with a huge fruitiness that was present throughout, giving way to a creeping mild sourness in around the middle with the finish being moderately yeasty with a strong fruity overtone. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mildly sweet fruity tartness fading from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was somewhat light in body with a mildly dry texture and a champagne-like carbonation.
Overall this was a very good tasting Kriek that possessed a nice light sourness blended with a bold yeasty fruitiness, which did a great job of totally concealing the high ABV, making this Lambic extremely smooth, easy to drink and very enjoyable...

Pours a deep blood red with a fluffy off pink head. Very interesting looking beer and definitely not what I was expecting. Smell is very fruity, tons of cherries, lemon and lime, tart and sweet. Taste is very similar to the smell. Cherries, raspberries, funk, grape, green apple. Feel light and tart, crisp and refreshing.
Overall, enjoyable, good summer beer. A little fruity for my taste, but lots of good flavors.
