look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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

Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Hill Farmsstead stemmed tulip. Quick review. Vintage unknown. Not the most recent though. Opened with no pop.

Appearance- Burgundy wine. Great color, no head or bubbles

Smell- Cherry, oak, tabbacco, lemon. Earthy, oaky, fruity.

Taste- So much cherry and oak. Flanders red-esque. Tons of cherry, tabbacco, and oak. Really really nice.

Mouthfeel- Flat as can be. Medium body. Flat. Medium tartness.

Overall- This would be so incredible if it had any bit of carbonation. Oh well, it's still juicy and tasty.
