wow. ive been drinking some incredible beer lately, i mean, its been a heck of a run for me the last couple of weeks, being exposed to wonderful beers though trades, generous friends, festivals, and travel. its not often i am this saturated with new and fantastic beer. even in the midst of this streak of good beer fortune, this one stands out as something extremely special. ive liked the other woods beers, but this is next level. cherry in this is super forward and super ripe, the beer is dark dark red, red wine looking. it appears to be a flemish type red at its base, rather than a classic lambic that most kriek is, im fine with that, because the extra grain body and the vinegar pucker is fitting. cherries are both sour and sweet, really intense, and there is a highly tannic red wine character in here that fits its appearance like a glove. one of the more sour krieks i can think of, hanssens older krieks get super acidic, and this does the same thing, but the bigger grain base helps it last on the tongue forever. carbonation is fine, although it drops out with some temperature. some oaky funk to this too, one of the most flavorful beers ever, its just so so good, many thanks to my brother for finding this thing. these guys deserve a ton of credit for this woods series, its unrivaled in depth and complexity. love love love

I get everything mentioned in Cisco's description - cherries, check. Wine barrel, check. Sour aging, check. All very well balanced. Excellent.
