Pours deep, beet red with a light head and mild carbonation. Aromas of cherry and root beer. Flavors of strawberry and vanilla cherry soda, with a very nice tart finish. Overall the flavor is very dominated by the fruit.

As it warms, we observe tropical, citrus, and floral aromas, with darker fruit flavors arising, as well as a bit of a jolly rancher pop.

A perfect kriek.

Consumed on a car ride (not driving) in a paper cup.

A - Red with a pink head, semi-persistent foam. Quintessential Kriek Lambic.

S - Great tart cherry; pungent. Also a slight woody and pickle-olive aroma.

T - Same as the nose, but more intensely cherry, and the most sublimely perfect balance, and basically perfectly tuned-up.

M - Very nice carbonation; not too big and not too little.

D - This is one of the greatest pleasure to drink. I could drink this by the firkin.

Poured from 330ml bottle into tulip style wine glass.

A: Dark crimson red with beautiful cherry tinged white head with a lace that clings nicely to the glass.

S: Tart Cherry/ Cinnamon/ Oak-wood notes/ Slight barnyard notes with corky accent/ Cherry cola/ Sherry/ Saddle/ Violet

T: The cherry comes out tart at first on the initial attack and then transforms into a sweet cherry on the mid palate that turns into cinnamon toast. On the finish this beer displays a nice funky tart cherry flavor.

MF: Great mouth feel that fills the palate with flavor and ends with hints of creaminess. The finish on the beer is quite good.

D: This beer is very drinkable! Your mouth waters for more with each sip. The sourness of this beer is in perfect balance.

Overall:
Wow this is a great beer! Everything is in perfect harmony. A real pleasure to drink.

Dre Fonteinen kriek
H-pink fleating head
N-sour cherry, lambic base comes through well
T-sour up front becomes soft quickly. Good balance of sweetness and sourness. Truely a great lambic. Perfect example of kriek done right. Sad the brewery is closing it's doors. 
$23.99 bottle 750ml
