375ml bottle at the Malt House in Madison, WI. Poured into a Duvel tulip today, 1/27/2014.
App- dark brownish red body, minimal white head, looks syrupy. Not much retention, no lacing.
Smell- Medicinal, cough syrup, Robitussin. Some cherry flavor, extremely sweet.
Taste- Disgusting. Overly sweet with cherry makes it incredibly medicinal.
Mouthfeel- Medium-thick body, custardy. Had to choke half the bottle down. Luckily for me, another BA was sharing this bottle with me.
Overall- Disgusting example of a kriek. You can do way, way better than this with other shelf krieks.. even Lindeman makes a better one. Look for the likes of Hannsen's or Oude Beersel.
