375ml bottle dated 6-15-12 in wine glass

Cloudy, red pour with good lacing. Sweet jammy nose; clean but sour with a touch of vinegar. Earthy, dry cherry taste with sharp lactic sourness. Clean at first but develops on the palate to include some funky, leathery tones. Finishes with a dry lemony/salty pop. Plenty of carbonation (maybe a bit too much) with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, outstanding. Clean and refreshing but complex. Great natural cherry flavor where most of the sweetness is in the nose. Avoids the cough medicine taste found in some other krieks I have tasted. Well done.

Update 7/24/14 with 750ml bottle dated 12/5/13: a little rougher than the previous bottle. Wonderful cherry pie nose but the flavor is a little high on the acetic acid making for a very sour and slightly astringent offering. There is also a heavy earthy / leathery tone.
