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.

375ml bottle poured into a Piraat Belgium tulip glass
A: 1 finger pale pink head with low retention. The beer itself is more of a dark purple/red color.
N: Plenty of cherry and some funk from spontaneous fermentation and 2 years of aging in oak vats. It really has the Luden's cough drop thing going on, but not a lot of complexity.
T: Confirms nose with some sweetness to it and a creamy mouthfeel.
O: It's an easy one to enjoy when you're in the mood for a lambic.

Hazy ruby color with a pink head with low retention.
Sweet predominant aroma of cherries and tart.
Sweet taste of cherries, grapes, a mild sourness and musk.
Medium body with medium carbonation, a bit effervescent.
Tasted to me like a cherry Halls, not bad at all, but still sweet and not that complex.
Serving type: on-tap
