Pour this one cold! Huge pop and quickly bubbling out of the bottle even when chilled, nevermind warm.

This is quite fresh, despite 2013 listed on the bottle - just released really.

A: Pours a deep dark red. Cloudy, can barely see through it. Small tan head that sticks around decently enough. Decent head retention but nothing earth shattering. Almost no lacing at all.

S: Blast of sugary cherry candy and then a quick followup of sour cherries. Light tannic character.

T: No sweet cherries here, this is a face-scrunching sour. I literally cringed at the first sip. Waves of very tasty but very sour cherries. It reminds me of Warheads from my childhood, except little to no sweetness to back it up. Not much else to mention, maybe a little oaky tannins in the finish but it's pretty much just sharp sour cherries from top to bottom.

M: Medium bodied, lower carbonation and very mouth-puckeringly sour.

O: Welp, not much to say other than that this is a very vibrant and sour cherry beer. Clean, crisp, refreshing and hits the tongue like a brick. Pretty simple and straightforward.

750 mL cork and caged Belgian-style bottle purchased at Cleveland Ave. Wine & Liquors in NW DC; 2013 vintage; drank over an hour

A: 2/3 - initial pour revealed reddish-amber coloration; low clarity (cannot see through); particulate matter (likely cherry bits) floating throughout; off-white/eggshell carbonation settles into a glass lacing; mild alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - mostly pungent tart character - horse blanket, hay/grassy and slight plastic; the fruit and malt notes are further back - cherries, dates and figs; don't get much oak of alcohol

T: 16/20 - matches the nose well, but, for me, there is much more cherry and stone fruits; the malt character develops with tart cherries and lots of funk that envelopes the palate; some alcohols; no hops; no detectable flaws for me

M: 4/5 - high carbonation - really pops the flavors; moderate body for an American wild ale

O: 9/10 - complex kriek from a brewery that hasn't been on my radar until now - definitely the best Cisco beer that I've ever had; my complaint are the general lack of wood character and the high price point for a 6-7% ABVer; however, this is worth hunting out in your hood or trading if they don 't - definitely will age well too!

TOTAL - 41/50
