Cantillon Lou pepe kriek

Shared by whiterascal and poured into a Russian River glass. Brewed in 2007 with Schaerbeek cherries and bottled in 2009.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The beer’s a brilliant crimson with perfect clarity. One inch of rosy, pink foam is dense, sticky and homogeneous. The cap fizzles away fairly quickly, becoming a thin, frothy top layer.

Sugary cherries, soft barnyard funk and lactic tartness in the nose. Packed with spices, like mulled cider. Cinnamon, apples, anise and more. Such balance and complexity.

Major lactic, vinegary tartness is first in the flavor. Tart Cherries are in there as well, along with some soft horsey funk. The swallow brings that amazing cherry cider complexity: cinnamon, sweet cherries, vanilla, more mulled spices. Hefty lingering tartness on the sides of the tongue. Complex, drinkable, awesome.

Highly carbonated and fizzy, bringing life to the medium-light body. It’s a bit thin for me, with a bracing acidity that grips the teeth.

Lou Pepe Kriek is a damn near perfect example of the style, exhibiting a masterful balance and blend of tart, sweet flavors.
