2008... red with a pink head that this to a collar. nose is black cherry with touches of sweetness, wood and funk amid a mildly brett-spicy backbone. reminds me of the cherries, the cherry tree and the farm they are on. taste is a well balanced mix of the above with black cherry and wood flavor dominating to me. just barely sour, and not as sweet as the nose led me to think it was going to be. medium body with almost prickly carbonation and a very cherry finish. a completely different animal than say, Hannsens (the best!). overall, very very good. definitely has it's own personality, and it is interesting to see what happens to the lambic flavors when the abv is elevated a bit.

2008 vintage

A: Rich transparent red body. Small, pinkish fizzy head. Decent retention. Very spotty lacing.

S: Tart cherries with a soft oaky must. Only the slightest hint of funk.

T: All said, a tasty, but not overly complex kriek. Lacking the depth and variety of cherry flavors that some of the better representatives deliver. The oak is mild, the funk is faint.

M: Smooth, medium bodied. Perhaps a bit thin towards the finish.

O: As noted above, not the best representative... but certainly a respectable offering.
