4.55/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
2007 sticker bottle, 2009 cork thanks to Gosox8787. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.
Pour: Hazy ruby red, with a very nice fluffy magenta head. Head is somewhat fizzy, and while parts of it recede rather quickly, and nice bit hangs around. Doesn't leave much if any lacing.
Smell: Big barnyard funk up front, followed by tart cherry skins. Some pear skins. A light oak, and a light lacticity come through.
Taste: Follows the nose, but big tart cherry juice and cherry skins hit first. Some pear. A big barnyard funk next, followed by a lactic sourness. Finishes sour with cherries and funky.
Mouthfeel: Sourness is next to puckering, yet with mixed with the funk, it is awesome. A sipper thanks to how sour it is, and I enjoy it.
Overall: A really fantastic kriek. I think I enjoy this more than 3F Schaerbeekse Kriek.
