Fairly vigorous pour down the middle yields a fluffy pink head that recedes down to almost nothing over the course of the glass. The body is red. Light lacing.

There is a nice earthy funk to go along with the sweet cherry notes.

Little touches of tartness and sharpness from the carbonation. Fairly light bodied. Big sweet cherry pie flavor. Little bit of mustiness and some metallic notes that dissipated after letting the beer breathe.

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.
