a tasty kriek, more of an introduction to the style, better than some of the more prevalent ones in the american market, but still more fruit and sugar than lambic and the funky sourness that comes with it. i think their oude kriek is one of the best cherry beers ive ever had, this one lacks the maturity, the dryness, and definitely the pucker. murky blood red in color it looks really cool in the glass, hazy and with a very sweet aroma. a little medicinal on the nose, but the flavor of the cherry is very good. for me, i like the more mature, sour versions of the lambic, these get sweet for me. 4% abv is low, if they let this ferment to 5% abv i think it would be an even better beer, it needs to be a little dryer for drinkability, but for those not familiar with real belgian kriek, this might be a great place to start. their oude kriek stands as one of the best all time, and this to me felt like an inferior little brother, but if we had them the other way around, i might like it a little more. still, well made and real authentic. worth picking up.

Decent cherry flavor but way too sweet for me.
