Has a fizzy, small head, and a slightly hazy dark red color with ruby hints to it.

Funky barnyard aromas unfold along lots of leather, and hints of sour yoghurt, wrapped up by a gently cherry fruitiness. Wooden, bready malts with damp hops stand against a super-dry, acidic sourness.

Cherries blend well into the sour aspect of the beer, providing a mellow sweetness, while adding more depth to the wooden malts as well. At the same time, the cherries don’t seem to be too young and pungent fruity, but with a ripe fermented touch and lots of stone qualities to them. The uprising sourness during the middle part is defined by an immense dryness, illustrated by cherry fruitiness. This brew has a great balance, with a very well defined, intense sourness, accompanied by an earthy, complex cherry note.

750 ml bottle poured into a Cantillon balloon glass. Label reads bottled January 2009, but I'd take that with a huge grain of salt since this is De Cam we're talking about (label also read 37.5 cl, which obviously was incorrect).

Appearance: Pours a deep ruby red color with less than a finger of a pink head that dissipates quickly to a thin collar. Body is hazy but still translucent.

Smell: Cherries, barnyard funk, hay, damp oak, and a hint of vanilla.

Taste: Medium lemon like sourness followed by lots of cherry. After that are notes of hay, funk, oak, hint of cranberry and vanilla. Really intense juicy cherries are what stand out most.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft almost creamy mouthfeel and medium, fine carbonation. Finishes tart and mostly dry.

Overall: Really excellent kriek. Tons of sour cherry character with just enough funk to keep it balanced. Drinks great as a cherry bomb now, but I'll be interested to see how it progresses with further aging. Seek this one out.
