What a beer! Thanks to clay station for acquiring and sharing this rare beauty. A ruby red color like a fire truck, true to its name, an intensity and vibrancy not seen since atrial. Not much head on it, but it doesn't need one. Aromas of exploding pie cherries and cherry jam, funky as anything I've had from these guys, and quite heavy in the lacto. It's mature and my mouth is watering hard. The cherry flavor is so robust and sour, like candy almost, brilliantly alluring, sexy, oh man. It's even more cherry forward than their other krieks, although I don't know by how much. Sour too, I thought it might be cloying, but it's just perfect. Oak mellows it's feel a lot, it's really dry too for what it is. I wouldn't change a thing here, but it would be so sick to line all these krieks up for one tasting. You can taste it for miles, more depth with every sip, and a pungency uncommon even in the wild ale world here on the yeast. Up there with any I've ever had, I'm in love!
