$11.55 for the 375ml bottle, bottled in January 2014.

It pours a murky dark red, reddish head of foam, reddish lacing.

I can sure smell the sour cherries and oak. Delightful.

Sour cherries and the woody oak in the taste with some hints of vanilla, I find a near perfect level of sourness. If I want a tad more, I simply swish the beer in my mouth. I reckon some time in a cellar could do even more for this brew.

About medium bodied, light carbonation.

This is very good indeed.

Poured into chilled 750 mL glass, pours a deep red almost a maroon color with a small half finger white bubbly head, no lacing. It smells slightly of cherries with an earthy lingering scent at the end. It tastes much better than the scent, a strong cherry flavor which surprises you with a strong tart bite, not a bad one though, I was just used to lindemans kriek which is a lot more sweet. The mouthfeel is light with strong carbonation, and as mentioned previously a really strong tart bite, it IS good though. Overall a good kriek, I prefer lindemans to it though!
