Had this on tap at Monks. Slightly cloudy dark red low carbonated look in the glass. Nice cherry/musty nose. Intense sour cherry hourse blanket barnyard laden taste. Abusive to the palate. As you drink the brew mellows on the back of the tongue and refreshes. I liked it but this is sure not for everyone due to it's intensity. Viscous mouth with a dry tart cherry finish. Crafted and blended by an artist. An experience.. not just a beer, and not one you could drink alot of in a row but a great apartif.

Taste: sharp sweettart sourness, spices, and cherries.

It is in your face with the first sip. This is an explosive, sour kriek.

Bottle, generously shared by Sammy. Sampled with many others. Slightly hazed cherry red with a foamy pink head. Very enticing aroma of sour cherry, funk, wood, yeast. Mouth watering. Extremely tart with sour cherry and strawberry, highly acidic, with yeasty funk and woody notes. Palate cleansing, refreshing, medium body with mouth puckering finish. Excellent tart cherry aftertaste. Great beer, thanks Sam!2003 Vintage.
