This has a tart sour lambic presence up front that is full of lemon, sweet tarts and lacto. If you've had SR before, the tart sour lambic presence reminds me of that. As the beer goes on, the kriek makes itself known by adding some slight cherry presence. The finish is tart and dry as you'd expect. Overall, I was impressed by this blend and was happy I could try it.
