Bottled on March 1, 2005.

Pours out to what looks to be pomegranate juice with an almost still composure and a thin, frothy, pink head. Leaves some scant lacing. Aroma, of course, has a very strong presence of acid, but the overall funk seems a bit muted and restrained. Still has a mossy, old attic aroma thing going on. Has one of the more pronounced fresh cherry aromas out of any other kriek I've had. I get a little faint earthy hop in the background. Flavor gets kicked off with intense acid and a touch of rubber and woodiness. This segues into a bright, fresh cherry flavor (along with some mild accompanying sweetness) which rides out into the drying and tart finish. Has a bit of a fungal element in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel straddles the line between light and moderate in weight and has a lively carbonation. Although this is not one of the most complex lambics, this, like all traditional lambics, is really drinkable.

2005 vintage, pulled off a dusty forgotten shelf in central Illinois.

Glowing cherry red, perfect ruby jewel toned clarity. Hissing pink foam as it's poured, it sounds like a gentle rain. As it fades, a thick ring forms at the edge, with a floating island veil in the center. Second pour fluffs up the head into a lasting pink meringue.

Musty wet wood aroma dominates, faintly lactic, cherry pits and skins, with a mellow hint at the acidity that lies inside.

Perfect blend of even sourness, woody tannin, and succulent cherries. Long finish, induces the salivary glands into overdrive. At room temperature, it's sourness seems even more mellow, with a dominant dry oakiness.

Utterly drinkable, but one to savor for sure. The fruit may have faded slghtly, but so has the acidity, and right now this is a fine Kriek. One i'll be picking up indefinitely...
