Bottle on 07/12/2007.

Poured hazy reddish color with an average fizzy reddish head that was mostly lasting with good lacing.

Moderate complex tart cherry aroma.

Medium body with a sticky texture and lively carbonation.

Heavy sour cherry flavor with a medium tart sour finish of long duration.

Refreshing brew that is a standout.

Cloudy bright red colour with no head. Actually quite cloudy. Good.

Nicely funky aroma with a tart edge. Very sour cherries. Good.

A complex balance of soured cherry and funk. Very lightly bitter although that may be astringency. I quite like this.

Medium light body with moderately-high carbonation. Good and not overly puckering.

A balanced yet tart Kriek. Good cherry flavour and quite nice on the whole though it doesn't blow me away.

Poured int great lakes snifter.

1/2 finger of fizzy light pink head. Color is a bright ruby hue to it. Maroon/pinkish color. Very bright. I like it.

Aroma: vinegar, sourness to it, barnyard funk/horse blanket, leather, sour cherries, oak, and a medicine flavor.

Taste: The medicine flavor sticks out so much here and it takes a lot away from the beer. Oak, cherries, funk, leather, horse blanket all show. This beer could be a lot better if it didn't have that distinguished medicine flavor to it.

Mouthfeel: Sour and tart, mouth puckering. Medium bodied with a low to medium amount of carbonation. Ends really clean.

Overall, the medicine is what kills this beer. Not as good as some of the others I have had from them. Not worth the price tag imo. Somewhat drinkable if one can get past the medicine flavor.

Poured from a 750mL bottle dated April 28, 2010 into a Duvel 0.5L tulip.

A: Tons of loud fizzy carbonation forms a pinkish head, which fades quickly into a wispy lacing. Body is a beautiful deep ruby hue. There is not much lacing, but I still think it looks great.

S: Cherry aromas foremost, with a wonderful sourness and slight bit of funk.

T: Powerfully sour, but less funk than I'd hoped. Wonderful complex fruit aftertaste.

M: Less carbonation than the pour suggests. Mouthfeel is fairly thin, and absolutely puckering from the sourness.

O: Overall, I think I am drinking this beer too young maybe. I was expecting more brett complexity. The fruit flavor is great, but the sourness could be overshadowing the other flavors.
