750ml bottle of the 2012/3 vintage, reviewed from notes. Thanks for sharing, Tony!

A: Hazy deep magenta body under a finger of fine pink foam. Ok retention, spotty lace. Very nice.

S: Hugely acidic, with nostril-tingling citric and acetic sourness. Cherry skin and bitter cherry wine. Intense.

T: Follows the nose precisely, but with the dark cherry notes up front and the intense sourness toward the end. Really tasty.

M: Creamy medium body, lovely carbonation. Excellent, particularly for the style.

O: Really nice Kriek, but I'm not sure I'll be buying more when it's the same price or marginally cheaper to order 3F from Etre.

Cheers!

Good sour beer. Extremely dry.

On the nose wet hay, band-aids, and some funk. The mouth feel is very good, thick, something that you would expect from the style. This is helped by a low-level of carbonation, which is also style appropriate.

The real "kicker" is the fruit. the nose could not be more deceiving.... The cherries come in, right up front, with a good sour taste. It is a bit more sour than I personally like, but overall welcome. The dryness of the beer helps with the sour character as well.

Overall a fantastic beer, especially if you are one for sours.

750ml C&C bottle; small pop as cork is removed from the bottle.

poured into a tulip glass.

Apperance: dark red bodied beer with thin white cap.

Smell: this smells like a sour bomb. acetic sourness. lots of tart pie cherries. a hint of musty funk.

Taste: This is a sour beer with serious pucker factor! A 7.5/10 on the sourness scale. Acetic sour and loads of tart cherries. Mild funkiness that is reminicent of wet hay plus musty basement. I would consider this a fruit foward sour beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. It has got a really dry finish to match the sourness in this beer. A little bit more carbonation would have been preferable, but this beer does fine at the level of carboantion that it has.

Overall: I think that this kriek is in the same ballpark as krieks brewed by cantillion and drie fonteinen. I would not have it any other way with this beer!
