Poured from a 750 ml bottle at the Memphis Taproom while visiting Philadelphia earlier this year. Maybe I got a bum bottle or my tongue was off that night, but compared to 3F's Intense Red Kriek and Oude Kriek, which I love, I found this one overpoweringly and one-dimensionally tart, lacking the bright, distinct fruit character I was hoping for. Still a wonderful sour all things considered, but more assaultive and less complex than the other cherry 3Fs I've had.

750 ml poured into a tulip glass.

A- a beautiful deep intense red with a tall pink head that keeps a thick outside lace. A truly beautiful looking ale.

S- seeet cherries, raspberries, and peaches. A very rich funk that instantly makes your cheeks pucker. There is also a slight smell of cough medicine but not as poignant.

T- follows the nose exactly. The taste is sweet and sour. Sweet cherries and raspberries. Then the sour sits in. Completely taking over the taste buds. The medicinal taste is definitely present on the back end but it isn't bad.

M- sour as hell! Probably the most sour beer I've had. Full bodied as well.

O- a delicious beer. Sweet and sour and overall just amazibg beer. Can't think of anything that would make it better for the style.
