Thus far the best kriek I've ever had! Intensity is the proper description of this one! Delicious!

Hey why is this beer so sour? Aren't all beers supposed to be hoppy or something?

Pours an extremely dark garnet hue (which is what Helltown's Kriek should have looked like instead of pink lemonade). Wads and wads of cherries on a sour tone. Kind of a punch in the mouth with not as much nuance on the character as I would have hoped for. But it's still good. Just as a sour should be in all aspects. Definitely glad to have a chance to try a new version of the real deal.

Amazingly deep red color, stunning. Not a huge head or carbonation, but very light bubbles are suitable for some texture.

This beer lived up to its name "Intense." The flavor was deeply sour and cherry-forward. The cherry flavor was jolly rancher-like. Funk and barnyard was kept to a minimum but still present.

I enjoyed the heck out of this beer. In terms of pure fruit beers it is one of the best I have ever had, but judged against other lambics it lacked a bit of the complexity to put it in the upper echelon. 4.25 is a harsh rating honestly, that is more of a comparison to other lambics. Compared to other fruit abominations I have tried, this is a 4.5 easily.
