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.
