Big thanks to Anthony, my cousin, for bringing this to the Citra tasting I held earlier this week. It's not the first 3F beer I've had, but I believe it's the first 3F beer I'm reviewing.

Poured into my snifter glass.

A - Dark cherry/blood color. There's a pinkish hue on the head, and it's a few mm in depth. The head dissipates quickly leaving nice head retention. No lacing to speak of.

S - Deep oak mixed with dark cherries. Plenty of funk consisting of a musty/horse blanket thing going on. Very nice.

T - Tart cherry finish. Funkyness in the taste mixed with cherries. So simple, yet the taste is much more complex...though hard to describe.

M - Dry mouthfeel. Barely any carbonation with a light to medium body.

D - Pleasure to try. I would definitely drink more if it was there.

750 mL bottle shared at Memphis Taproom on 6/7/10 thanks to Brendan!

Pours crystal clear dark pink, with slight hints of violet. Fluffy bubbly off-pink head that lasted. Little lacing, but thick legs were left on the glass as I drank.

Aroma was dominated by cherry, with only the slightest hints of lactic acid/citrus. Many other krieks are sour lemon with cherry, but this was a beautiful sour cherry aroma, with a ton of dirty funk behind it.

Flavor was a slight sweetness and then truly a sour cherry flavor. Again, this was now citric tartness, but rather a perfect blend of cherry sourness.

Medium body with fantastic carbonation highlighting the sourness. Pretty dry finish.

Overall a beautiful beer that was incredibly balanced and drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep pink/red color with a finger of head and a ton of effervescent carbonation bubbles.

The aroma is tart and cobwebby with a decent amount of cherry sweetness peeking through.

The flavor starts with an initial burst of sour lemon and cherry sweetness. Underlying cobweb and dusty funk adds a layer of complexity. Some oak and bread crust are also present.

The body is medium and carbonation is at appropriate levels. This one drinks very nicely, never becoming overwhelming for the palate. Overall I am very impressed by the balance of this beer. Top quality kriek, for sure.
