Poured from bottle into goblet style glass. Deep garnet color with pinkish frothy head that quickly dissipated but left a slight lacing on the glace. Aroma of tart cherries with slight vinegar undertones and musty, funky barnyard.
Lively carbonation. Fruity taste upfront with cherry tartness that layers into an earthy mustiness through the finish. Light to medium body. This beer is delicious. Finishes with slight saltiness that lingers. Very complex. There is so much going on with this one.
I only rate the drinkability at 4.0 because it was $12.99 and because it is so complex. I was extremely satisfied with just one. An amazing beer made in the traditional style without sugar added. My wife loved it also!!!

Never got around to reviewing this, so let's do it now.
Bottle vintage: June, 2013. Consumed July, 2014.
Deep cherry-red color, topped with a huge fluff of fizzy pink head out of the bottle, which soon settled to a half-finger of delicate foam, and further to a wispy layer, leaving strands of lace on the glass. Effervescent. Lots of funk and oak in the aroma, big lacto notes, herbal and leafy, very little cherry detectable until the beer warms a little, but I prefer having this one nice and chilled. Nice acidic twinge right up front on the palate, lemony lacto, natural-tasting sour cherry, freshly chopped oak, notes of dried leaves and grass, with a decisive yeasty funk, horseblanket, and a tiny fruity sweetness peeking through every once in a while. Complex and tasty. Medium body, puckering mouthfeel, high initial carb dies down to a more moderate level fairly quickly, making for an overall tasty and enjoyable kriek. Exemplary.
