2008 Vintage. Consumed Nov. 19, 2011 at Inaugural Bottle Share, thanks tbadiuk! From Notes

A: Clear red with a light fizzy head and touches of lacing.
S: Tart cherry pie with light hints of soap.
T/M: Thin body with a tart sourness in the back of the lower jaw. Hints of funky vinegar. Lots of cherry playing well with all of this. Finishes quite dry.
O: A delicious beer that could be paired with many light and fruity dishes.

A - pours a ruby, cherry red without much of a head on it

S - the nose consists of cherries with citrus and funk. Nice smelling nose, but to be expected at the same time.

T - sweet cherries up front fade to a citric sourness. The sourness is a bit understated; this isn't as sour as the regular version of this beer. As this warmed, the cherry flavor started to really pop, imparting a really nice cherry pie finish to this.

M - medium body that finishes dry

D - pretty solid kriek. My second venture in the LP series and another winner. This isn't as acidic as the 3F kriek I had next to it or the '05 Cantillon Kriek that I also tried. This had the perfect amount of cherry and lambic to it. Worth the hunt? Tough question when the regular kriek is so damn good as well. But Yes.

Update: I had a couple pours of an '06 LPK in Summer 2013, so 7 years later. The beers was amazing - the fruit was still exploding, the lambic more funky and acidic than fresh. Age this one!
