Reminiscent of Cantillon Kriek. Dusty fruity nose and puckering sour taste.

this beer is pro, and the whole series has been epic, but this one offers something unique. i think drier, more carbonated, and as funky as it is sour, compared to others. my one problem with it, if i can fairly call it that, is that it isnt necessarily distinctly red currant on the fruit side, if you said it was a mix of cherries and raspberries i might not know the difference. where the red grape was so positively red grapes, this one is more generic fruit, but thats not the point here i dont think. as a wild ale, its as good as they come, with a pinkinsh red tint to a rather clear brew. heady and white froth in one glass, almost still looking in the other, i dont all the way get it. tangy funk to the nose, fruity only a little, more a lacto oaky maturity and acidic sourness. so sour, but still bretty too, is this blended? how old is it? i need more information because i want to make beer this good. fuller bodied too than i remember the others being, which is a nice treat. sours never feel like this one the palate. overall this is incredible, the fruit is just unique enough to make this crazy memorable, and has a perfect mix of sweet and pucker. world class wild beer, nothing like this series, it deserves more attention.
