37,5cl bottle with red paper wrapped around it. Nice presenatation
Pours a reddish brown -amber almost- coloured brew with a medium sized, pink head
The nose is full of sour cherries. Tartness and hints of cork and wood give this one a very athentic and attractive aroma.
The taste is smooth and straightforward yet heavenly complex & unique, notes of malts, yeast and 'earthy' spices. Cherry tartness and sweetness balance out eachother perfectly, but it's definitely the sour aspects that dominate.
Excellent mouthfeel and drinkabillity. The tartness in the brew is perfectly balanced and doesn't get tiring at all. I could drink this all night.
Excellent stuff. Hands down the best Kriek I've had so far.

3.46/5 rDev -13.7%

Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.
A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.
S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.
T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.
Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
Serving type: on-tap
