Poured from the 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Huge pop, ripping right off the cage, but not a gusher, some suds.

A huge deep ruby red out of the bottle, and fills with big dark purple opacity. Head is frothy and shampoo thick, easily a good solid three fingers, with soapy retention and dark pink to purple color. An aggressive kriek, wonderful..

Giant aroma, even off the pop the wildness seems to take hold also. Super menthol heat and cherry fruit off the nose. Thick juice and fruit skin tannic notes. Cherry explosivity with herbal heat hints of cinnamon and mint as well. The ultimate lambic cough drop minus the medicinal twinge.

Palate comes though very sharp. Lots of carbon dioxide feel and flavors in the mid palate. Blasting cherry notes and huge effervescence on the finish. An almost light woody character strangely a bit. Lots of fruit skin tannic action also, with a big palate dry character in the back.

Overall an aggressive and real impressive kriek, which surprisingly is a bit of a challenge to drink. A good solid brew, but kind of going overboard on aggression.
