375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in February 2013. Pours fairly clear ruby red color with a 2 finger dense pink head with poor retention, that reduces to a lacing ring that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of sour cherry, cherry skin, cranberry, green apple, grape, pear, clove, pepper, oak, leather, straw, hay, red wine, vinegar, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of cherry, wild/lactic yeast, and oak notes; with good strength. Taste of big sour cherry, cherry skin, cranberry, green apple, pear, red wine, oak, clove, straw, grass, hay, vinegar, leather, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity acidity on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, cranberry, green apple, oak, clove, red wine, leather, vinegar, straw, hay, and musty funk on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of cherry, oak, and wild/lactic yeast flavors; with a very nice malt/acidity balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour kriek style. All around great complexity and balance of cherry, oak, and lactic/wild yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

A - A brilliant red color with great clarity. A small white head with steadily rising bubbles.

S - Nice cherries! More tart than sweet.

T - Nice tart/sour flavor offset by a mild sweetness and a fresh sherry flavor. Good depth and complexity.

M - Moderate carbonation and consistency.

O - A great kriek!
