Reviewing 2013 vintage. Poured from bottle into Duvel glass.

Brick brown color, with reddish large head.

Smells of cherries, faint/mild brett funk, rust, gingerbread, maybe even cocoa.

A very decent kriek this year. Well-balanced, with good sourness, medium body, and interesting fruit and "rustic" notes.

Serving type: bottle

Corked and caged bottle of 2013 Project from Gator Beverage. Poured deep dark red into my tulip with a tall, fizzy pink head that quickly recedes. The head ends up lingering as a very small creamy bubble film on top that is really interesting. Lots of sour cherries on the aroma with some vinegar there, and dry oakiness. Flavor is super sour cherries, with a light vinegar note that is balanced out by the super dry oak flavors. Really nice Kriek that highlights the cherries without being medicinal. Miles better than the Blueberry mess I had last night. Good beer!

A - Beaten egg-white foam perches on the dusty red decoction.

S - Cherry pie.

T - Musty cherries with wood character and decent funk. Chocolate on the finish

M - Unobtrusive. Tied the beer together nicely.

O - Pretty much the only Cascade sour I was tempted to by a bottle of when I visited their brewpub. Came together really nicely. I find this to be slightly underrated.

Serving type: on-tap
