Pours bright red with almost no head. The color is so vibrant that it looks artificial, though obviously it's all-natural. Aromas of tart cherries dominate with almost no perceptible funk at all, which is surprising. Taking a first sip... wow, just wow. It's nowhere near as tart as it smells. The umami taste that cherries have (but are muted by the natural sweetness) shines through in this brew. The mouthfeel is simply luxurious: imagine the sensation of chewing cherries but somehow the experience is distilled into liquid form. I could drink this beer all day, any day.
Krieks are near the top of my favorite styles of beer. And while I've been lucky to enjoy many stellar offerings, Cantillon's Lou Pepe has surpassed them all. World Class!

A- An absolutely gorgeous ruby red with a large pink head that dissipates somewhat quickly. It glows in the glass and is one of the prettiest beers I've seen!
S- Super funky, slightly cheesy, lots of tart cherries and some oak and grass.
T- Sweet and tart fruit, primarily cherries. Tons of oak character, some dry granny smith apple. Dry and refreshing!
M- Medium with a nice amount of, carbonation and dryness.
O- An awesome kriek! Cantillon always owns it!
