Deep purple ish red color with a pink head. Free of sediment. Smell of fresh cherries, musty oak, sourness. In the taste, tart fresh cherries, lambic sourness, hay. The cherries really exhibit fine flavor and the sourness rounds things out perfectly. Nearly puckering but still quite balanced. Medium bodied, medium carbonation and finishes with cherry, tartness and a semi dry oak. Overall, it's an easy to drink, balanced sour and very tasty.

Notes taken the other day while moving out of my apartment.

A- Poured from the 375ml to a 3F tumbler. Deep intense red body with acreamy fizzy pink head to one finger. Decent head retention leaving a small foamy ring that deposits legs and some sheets of lace.

S- Cherry domination more than any other Kriek I have had, perhaps even with Lou Pepe are a bit more. Semi sweet black and red cherry, funky sweaty horse and musty basement with medium tart lactic.

T- Oak opens up nicely with what is found above. Tart cherries and lactic lemon sourness, funk comes in pretty big with horsey musty barnyard, vinous fruit flavors of grapes and apple a bit, cherry pits and all and a very tiny hint of balsamic.

Mf- Light dried body with a fizzy high carbonation. Sourness is medium high towards the end and the body's texture is silky and foamy.

Cherry bomb with the same 3F classic sourness and funk. I was expecting something sweet after what friends said but this is sour and funky to me with a boost in cherry presence.

2 year old bottle. Pours beautiful red, no head, but beautiful. Smells of vinegar and cherry. VERY dry, unexpectedly so. Tastes of vinegar, cherry, and a bit of salt. Oak and wine notes throughout but more present at the finish. Finished dry and sour, but with a linger that I also didn't expect. Great beer.

Served from a bottled in 2012 dated bottle into a 3F Tumbler. Cooled in the fridge for a couple hours.

Appearance- Gorgeous ruby/purple with 2 finger pink foamy head that left a nice ring.

Smell- Cherry, lemon, vinager, 3F lambic funk, mild oak. Fruity and funky.

Taste- Cherries, plums, grapes, oak, vanilla, funky earth, lemons. Fruit forward obviously, but even beyond fruit forward. Fruit in your face.

Mouthfeel-Lightly carbonated, juice-like viscosity, mild tartness, light dryness at the finish.

Overall- Awesome lambic. More carbonated than I remember from having it at The Festival before it was available in this country. So goddamn good. Juice.
