Appearance - This is a gorgeous beer. The red color has the slightest tint of bright brown and the head is reddish and fluffy.
Smell - The cherries are so soft it's amazing. The tart aroma is like green apple but it's not strong or overpowering and somehow harmonizes perfectly with the cherries. The malt base has a nice sugary sweetness to it without coming off as artificial.
Taste - The afore-mentioned aromas come out nicely at the taste and again work incredibly well together. You get the wonderful cherry flavor, very natural, a balancing light tartness, and a wonderful malt structure.
Mouthfeel - This is a solid medium-bodied with excellent carbonation.
Drinkability - Lambics can get long after 25 ounces but this one just kept calling out my name. It goes down so well and is so efficiently balanced that you could really session this ale. It showed the smoothness of their Goudenband with the distinctive flavors of the kriek. Incredibly well executed.
