Poured in a special Echte Kriekenbier glass - like a tall, skinny, stemmed vessel.

Reddish/purpleish in color.

It had a very thin, wispy, head that dissipated quickly.

Smell was cherries -very fruity in the nose.

Medium to high carbonation with a tart cherry note flavor very present. Some wood. A nice, pleasing, and refreshing sour beer.

Pours a dark red with a spritzy head that lasts 5 seconds.

Smell is of cherries and musty yeast. Some leather and dark fruit as well.

Taste is light funkiness with cherries and oak. Not very complex.

Feel is medium carbed with a light feel.

This is just ok, I recommend Duchesse De Bourgogne or Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge if you want a 12 oz single of flanders red.

Pours a beautiful red with fizz that disappears quickly off the top. Smells like crazy cherry, but not much beer. Either way it smells good. Super sour taste, but it finishes without much flavor. Seems like it could use some back end sweetness to get the whole palate involved. Nice tart cherries on the tongue. Very effervescent. A fun one to try, but their other sours are better (like Duchesse!).
