From a bottle, pours a dark ruby/copper color with a light than head. Very carbonated, lots of active bubbles. The head is airy and very fizzy. It dissipates similar to how soda does.

The nose is citrus and dark fruit, belgian yeast, and molasses. A little toffee and rustic funk. Personally, I get raisins instead of cherries, but could be just my nose. The flavor is much more tart than I anticipated and the kriek blend really is present here. More dark fruit, plums, grapes and moderately sweet molasses. This is a great blend, enjoying the sour element to it. The only negative for me is the over carbonation. Great beer, just less fizz.
