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

I brought this one to ffej of july this year. A 375ml from 2003. Served alongside a recent vintage Schaerbeekse Kriek. Same bottle as in the picture.

A - Pours slightly murky ruby red with a small half finger tall white head leaving very little lace on the glass. Based on the pop upon opening the bottle I figured it would have more carbonation.

S - Smells of dense, wet funk and tart sour cherries. The funk is moderate initially only growing as it sits in the glass. Cherries are there throughout but the funk threatens to overrun them toward the end. Oak and some apple vinegar round things out.

T - Starts off with an intense sour cherry flavor that never fades very far from the forefront. The musty funk isn't as strong as in the nose would lead you to believe. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the palate long after the finish.

M - Slick body with a ton of pucker and moderately low carbonation. It packs just enough cherry flavor to help break up the intense sourness.

O - This one has really aged nicely. Compared to the much fresher Schaerbeekse Kriek, the cherries have definitely left the party but there is still plenty to let you know what you are drinking.
