The final entry in KRIEK WEEK!!!! Listen up, KRIEK HEADS!!!

Yes, I just have to wonder if the best has been saved for last...after all, this beer does have its own giant protective wrapper... . Poured into a chilled tulip glass.

Appearance 4.25: Beautiful and unique-looking deep, dark, almost brown-red. Opaque. Looks very much like a big tulip glass filled with blood. Head was excellent (1/4") and a light pink in color. Excellent lacing.

Smell 4.0: Great nose on this brew. I smell lots of wood and a deep, dark, cherry bouquet. I also smell a very faint hoppiness to this beer, way in the back. Other notes are leather, cherry pits and certain flat smell of green leaves.

Taste 4.25: Front is tart and somewhat dry. This fades quickly into a middle that is silky smooth, semi-sweet and it is at this level that a medium-sized wave of cherry flavor attacks your tastebuds from the middle of the palate. Finish is smooth, balanced and features brief hints of a light cherry taste, almost like Mt. Rainier cherries. Delicious. Finish is short, light and dry and features a top-palate cherry taste that fades far too quickly leaving the imbiber wanting more.

Mouthfeel 4.0: Outstanding match with the carbonation. I could almost believe it was bottle conditioned.

Overall 4.25: Outstanding/Excellent kriek. This kriek is higher in ABV (6% ABV) than many others, but it is so smooth and delicious. Wonderful and complex at every level, Liefman's is a hard act to follow, so remember that when planning a session. Session? Yes, this baby is entirely sessionable. I would highly recommend drinking the entire 75 centiliter (that's 1 pint, 9.4 ounces) in one sitting. Highly recommended for all kriek heads. Not the best from Kriek Week, but darn close.
