Poured into my Shelton Brox. sampler at "The Festival."

This beer is ruby red, it looks like a red-wine. The nose is slightly sour, not at all acidic, but sour, tart. This beer has a lovely balance and you can really taste the cherries coming through, tart, sweet, red, this beer has a LOT going on!

Dark lollipop red, slightly hazy,. Aroma is fantastic. Macerated cherries. Woody character. This is authentic Kriek, nothing artificial here. Quite sour, more so than Oud Beersel. Slight tannic bitterness in the finish. Not as dense as Oud Beersel, yet more than Cantillon. Carbonation is fairly low.

At Drie Fonteinen during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes. Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Pours a very bright red with a two-finger, long-lasting pink head and some night lacing as it finally dies down. The nose was full of powerful cherries. Very tart with a bit of sweetness. The cherry character in this was quite amazing. Super fresh with a nice bit of acidity in the end. Slightly puckering throughout. The freshness of this one was unmatched and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit more than the regular Oude Kriek.
