look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. Best before 01/28/2015

(A)- Pours a deep crimson red color. Produced some solid off-white to pink froth with surprising retention and lacing for the style.

(S)- Huge aromas of slightly tart cherries. Quite clean on the nose apart from some subtle dryness. Otherwise massive cherry jam notes.

(T)- Subtle tart & dry oakiness leads the way into mountains of jammy cherry juice.

(M)- A good carbonation level for the style. Not overly sour or acidic, but great fruit notes. Very clean for the style too with no funk but a bigger sweetness to it overall.

(O)- Its a milder lambic for sure. Great fruit with some oak, just lacking the complexity and sourness one can expect for the style.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass, colour is an attractive red colour with a head of pinkish foam, good film retention. Clear and bright.

S - sweet candied cherries. Like the snow cone syrup, quiet sweet and a bit artificial feeling, some slight sour funk, a bit vegetal.

T - starts with a balanced sharpness, bit of tartness which then fades as it becomes more sweet. Some lemony cherries, some strong sweetness to it, quite candied, but it does have enough carbonation to manage to clean it off, finish is quiet and light.

M - very light bodied. With a hint of tartness, moderate to high carbonation making this a refreshing aperitif.

Overall this has a mild tartness, lacks any real sour character, and has such a candy cherry sweetness it is a bit cloying if not for the carbonation to clean off the finish. Quite a light beer, only a slight oak character, it's a bit of a fruit bomb but makes a pleasant refreshing aperitif, would want to restrain myself to one though, it's more balanced than the smell would indicate and makes a refreshing if overall if mostly exciting Kriek.
