Tasted from bottle purchased at Discount Liquors, Vintage 2005. Pours a cloudy but bright brick red color with an average rose head that recedes to lace. Nose is sour and funky with just a hint of vinegar and lactic acid, some vanilla oak, and a very fresh cherry aroma that also has a hint of sweetness. Most Krieks I have tried smell more like a Kirsch brandy, where the cherries here smell much more fresh. The flavor starts off very sour and acidic, but quickly and seamlessly moves to the oak vanilla and very fresh cherries that throughout seem to give an illusion of sweetness, but I don't think that there is anything sweet to this beer at all. The body is medium with almost sparkling carbonation and a long sour and fresh cherry finish.
