Ruby Brown with a light tan cap that quickly faded into almost nothing. Lacing coats wherever it can, and lingers.

Scent is herbal, medicinal. Strong scent of tart cherries, old dry oak, a little spice and a little funk at the end. Just a touch of sweetness of you inhale deep enough.

Taste is reminiscent of raspberry puree at first. Quickly fading into tart cherreies, orange rind, and the medicinal and herbal characters. Some buttery sweetness I can't quite put my finger on, almost like maple without the ugh maple taste.

Mouthfeel is interesting. At first it reminds me of a fruit soda, but it finishes oily and sour. Dry in the back yet very sweet in the front. I can't make sense of it, but it works.

All in all, I like it, and it was definitely a good bargain. I could drink a beer like this year round.

this is still really well made cherry beer, but it isnt my favorite that they do. its still seemingly immature, sweet from the fruit rather than puckery from the lambic, but the freshness and authenticity of the fruit make it a worthy drink for me, and there still is a sturdy hit if funk mid palate, even though the sourness of the lambics we love the most doesnt really even show up. the cherries are ripe and juicy, not medicinal at all, although they crowd out any malt flavor for most o the drink. carbonation is fair, but the sweetness of the fruit makes this a beer i only need a little of, more of a cordial at this level than a beer, but you cant help but be impressed by the vibrancy of the cherries, and with the texture of the beer overall. its obviously a quality brew, but i think more time, less fruit, more lacto character, and a little more carbonation would really make this special. still, anytime you get good belgian kriek, you dont complain.

2012 label
Best before end 2017
Cork 40273

A: Deep, translucent ruby color with a foamy pink head that leaves some lacing. Very attractive beer. Some carbonation.

S: Sweet cherry pie filling with a hint of fresh cherry tartness. Musty oak is perceivable.

T: Sweet cherries with virtually no tartness. A hint of oaky woodiness. The finish is sweet and wet.

M: Round with moderate carbonation.

D: Drinkable. Not overly sweet, but not acidic or tart either. Straightforward cherry flavors.
