Poured on tap at O'Brian's into a tulip…

Pours a bright red with a small pink head that lingers for quite a while. The beer has wonder champagne feel to it with the many tiny bubbles circulating in the beer.

The nose was everything you would expect from a wild beer. Sourness with a slight barnyard to it. You definitely pick up on the cherries, but more of an unripe, slightly tart cherry. Beautiful, couldn't wait to taste.

Ahhh the taste. Reminds me of sucking on some sour candy when I was a kid. Makes the mouth pucker with tart delight. The sourness subsides leaving beautiful sweet cherry taste. Ah, the joys of Brett, pediococcus
and lactobacillus at work.

Mouthfeel is tingly from carbonation but you can't help but mention again the mouth puckering sensation when discussing mouthfeel.

Now of course this beer will turn many people off. If you respect the true style of lambics, this beer is a grand example of one of the most truly unique styles known to brewing. In my opinion Cantillon rules the lambics. At least the many I've had. For my wedding night we opened a bottle of Lou Pepe Framboise that was amazing, but I wish I had the Kriek. Thankfully I have a bottle sitting in my cellar now.

This had the most gorgeous raspberry color that left a pink hue on the fizzy lively head.

The nose was tart and sour cherry but was minerally.

The flavor is like candy, not too tart and not too sour. Its mellow sweetness highlights the natural raspberry flavor.

The feel is light and bubbly, sprite and delightful.

This is absolutely delicious, well constructed and a a true beauty to behold.
