Bottled March 31, 2009. This beer opens with a big pop. The beer is a deep dark pinkish red color with an off white just pink head. Spots of lacing. A nice film remains on the top of the beer. The aroma is big cherry pie with a mild funky must and a mild vinegar big tart note. Flavor is largely cherry again with a nice balance of acetic and lactic balance. Very tart with some nice funk notes. Good light refreshing mouthfeel with a bit less carb than I was expecting. Overall this is a damn good beer. A bit more sweetness and vinegar than I expected, but very enjoyable.

01 April 2011 bottling. 375 ml C&C poured into large 24 oz snifter.

This beer is a very pretty dark garnet red with a vividly pink tinted head. The foam quickly subsides leaving just a feather of bubbles on top. The beer smells soooo funky and acrid. The beer tastes equally funky with a lot of lactic acidity upfront that fades out to the mineral, musty, swampy, almost spoiled flavors. The finish is dry with a salty, tart cherry tang. The MF is very effervescent with abundant carbonation that just sparkles. This is a nice Kriek Lambic, but the overly funky (imo) flavors really mutes the brightness from the fruit. However, the vibrant acidity is nice, although my stomach might hate me in the morning for it.
