2010 sticker, bottled August 2012; Bottle at Cantillon, served in lambic basket.

A – Initial pour is an intense clear red with hints of brown. Initially half a finger of light pink head, which quickly dissipates to leave a thin, persistent collar.

S – Aroma is a combination of intense cherry, and pleasant earthy funk. Cherry aromas are not the least bit medicinal, but clean, fruity and acidic.

T – Similar to smell, a nice mix of cherry and funk in the taste. The cherry is mostly dry and tart, though a small amount of sweetness remains. After the initial burst of tart cherry, some funky elements come in and linger through most of the taste. The finish, however, is pretty much all cherry. Clearly a stronger cherry presence than the regular kriek (though this is also a relatively young bottle), and it works beautifully. Looking forward to comparing to an older bottle to see how this develops.

M – Light mouthfeel, mostly dry but with a touch of sweetness. Finish is clean, dry and tart.

O – Just wonderful. At this young age it is nicely acidic, but not overwhelmingly so and still highly drinkable.
