Thanks to JealousChalice for sharing this at DarthKostrizer's tasting.
Pours a slightly murky reddish-brown with a tan head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of red wine vinegar, sour cherries, and some funk aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic and tart finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but I think it smells better than it tastes.

Bottle shared at bu11zeye's 10,000th tasting.
The beer pours a brown color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of toffee and tart cherries, which meld very well together. The flavor is fairly similar, with a few additions. The tart cherries and toffee mix very well, and are complimented by some biscuit malt, a little bit of leather and some earthiness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thanks for opening this with me, JealousChalice!
Muddy crimson in color with a small off-white head that leaves oily streaks down the glass. Not pretty, nor unattractive.
Simple though nice aroma of sour cherry and sweet toffee. There's a hint of sour acidity and the beginning of funk in the aroma as well.
A simple kriek, though incredibly drinkable. Moderately sour cherry flavors mixed with sweet toffee and very, very mild funk. I would prefer more funk and a higher level of sourness.
Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
Good, but not great.
