Perfection in a bottle. I cannot make any construction criticism.

Bottle shared by Adam last night, '08 cork, '10 sticker. Drinking a kriek originally brewed 7 years ago, I live a blessed life.

Pours a brilliant deep clear red, with a spotty small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells quite sour and pretty funky, tons of lactic acid, some lemon, and a plethora of fresh sour cherries that are still bright and vibrant all these years later. I get cherry skins, and a good amount of oak. This one's pretty sour at this age, but it's not bracingly so, making it really drinkable. The sourness does not linger long with each sip.

There's a light body on this one, with a crisp and juicy mouthfeel- it goes down so easily. There's a higher level of carbnation.

This is a classic and one of the best lambics there is. So good.
