At the 2015 Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. This is a really nice beer. Unlike like most kriek-style beers, Lucile was not overwhelmed with tart cherry flavor. Rather, the flavor profile was much more subtle and also quite complex. I really enjoyed this one.

2012, thanks to rudzud for sharing.
Some bubbles for a little head, mostly clear honey orange very slight amber hue.

Nose is tons of kriek sour cherries, some sour funk, acidic note, little blond malt thing, otherwise just all cherries.

Taste is tons more cherry, sticky sweet cherry candy, sour cherries and sticky flemmy sour funk, little candy thing, so much cherry. Nice acidity, level.

Mouth is med bod flemmy, decent acidity, decent carb.

Overall pretty good, nice sour acidic, lots of cherry but still pretty much a kriek which is not my fav style of sour.

Shared with JLindros, 2012 vintage bottle 174/197.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave thin wisps and a light halo.

S - Aromas of cherries galore, sour funky blonde. Lots of sour cherry pits. Decent about of vinegar.

T - Taste is quite tart and acidic, lots of cherries, great funk, nice barrel notes. Nice kriek notes, light vinegar and acid notes. Not overwhelming at all or overpowering. The cherries are floral and tart.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, clean, good acid level.

O - Overall this beer was impressive, was expecting this to be an acid bomb but it wasn't. Really lovely kriek.

Big thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this one. Served in a DryHop taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a partial cap, thick collar, and minimal lacing. Murky peach juice body.

S - A tad plasticy, unfortunately. There's a hefty dose of lemony lactic sourness and perhaps a touch of cherry pie in the periphery, along with very aggressive oak notes. I didn't realized this was a fruit sour until someone mentioned it, and if I had to guess I would have picked apricot or peach.

T - The taste is similarly heavy on the oak and lactic acidity, but with some dirty and medicinal brett flavors tossed in for good measure. There's some tart cherry, particularly emphasizing the skin, but it's merely a complementary flavor rather than the focus.

M - Medium body, quite dry, with no alcohol, pleasant carbonation, and moderate lingering acidity.

D - A bit too oaky and light on the fruity for my tastes. The base sour is stereotypical American Wild, and there's not enough here to make this stand out in a crowded field. Easy enough to drink at 5%, but the Oaky Golden Pucker that Chris also shared was the superior beer across the board.
