750ml - bottled two years ago.

A - pours an opaque red-ish purple with an ephemeral head. No lace. No bubbles.

S - leather, tart cherry, oak, acetic. The second pour roused some rainy day earthworms which is similar to a wet dog for me. Yuck. It wasn't present in the first pour at all.

T - super tart, dry cherry and lemon peel. Leathery Brett.

M - light body. Mouth watering sourness. Minimal sweetness.

O - intense, dry cherry sour. it's like eating a handful of fresh, sour cherries while wearing a brand new, high quality leather catsuit, only better. Cascade Kriek is more complex and tastier than this, but this is quite good, if you like a super tart cherry beer.

apparently one of the harder to find beers from these guys, and it is a real beauty. this is the 2010 vintage. it pours a cloudy pale red color, like a strawberry frosted donut, with some suspended yeast and only a small white head that settles quickly. the nose is the classic kriek smell, tart cherries, sour yeasty notes, and some mild residual sugar. the flavor is surprisingly not sweet, and it finishes dryer, which I really like in this kriek as opposed to others. the cherry flavor is very authentic and up front, but it doesn't dominate the funky yeast lambic essentials. in other words, its in wonderful balance. the finish is super sour, more so than I remember in any other kriek ive had, this one zaps all the moisture right out of my mouth. better carbonation than you gather from the appearance, and a light enough body, with hardly any sugar left over when you swallow. its really got an extraordinary mouthfeel. this is by far the best kriek ive had, its quality and tradition shine through. still, this is a style of beer that is hard for me to drink too much of, so I was fortunate enough to have a lot of friends, old and new on hand to share this with.
