4.2/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Plum red in color, the beer yields no head whatsoever. Bubbles do race through what otherwise looks to be a thick body. 3.5
S: The aroma is oaky and dank, but is bolster by an assault of sweet cherries. It certainly doesn't smell like it's going to produce the spine tingling acidity as the apricot version, but it does smell good. 4
T: This kriek tastes much more sweet than I thought it would, but the beer certainly brings it. A deeply enjoyable blend of oak, sweet cherries, slight tartness, but no hit of alcohol. The crisp, clean aftertaste is full of cherries, as well. 4.5
MF: Medium body with a lower than average carbonation. The beer makes my mouth water and keep me coming back for more, seemingly having a never-ending drinkability. 4
O: Really a phenomenally blended beer that lived up to the hype. I didn't give it as high a rating because I wanted it to be more sour, but the cherries stepped up in a big way. You won't go wrong here. 4
