500 ml corked and caged bottle, says retired, yet new to my market- Pours hazy dark ruby red with a medium bubbly light tan head that reduces quickly. Aroma is cherries, tart, lacto, cherry pie filling. The taste is more tart than the aroma led on, highly tart and acidic, cherries, lacto, funk. Nice drinking sour.

500ml bottle served in a tulip. 2016 release.

Pours dark reddish brown with a huge amount of carbonation but zero head retention. Smell is tart and cherries -- smells like Rodenbach (this is a good thing).

Taste is sweet-tart, lots of cherry/dark fruit flavor. Maybe a little date. Can't pick a lot out right now, but it's quite tasty.

Mouthfeel is light and very effervescent. Overall, quite tasty beer. If you like Rodenbach, I think you'll like this.

I had this beer on-tap in a snifter at the 2014 WABL Belgianfest in Seattle.

Appearance: dark brown-red hue with a very light cloudiness. Quite nice, indeed.

Smell: light, sour cherry aroma. Not terribly complex, but there's a good level of sourness here and I happen to really like krieks.

Taste: lightly sour with a moderate cherry character. It's quite woody, with a lot of vanilla and a bit of butteriness. I like it.

Mouthfeel: moderate-light body; fizzy, if not creamy. Decent for the style.

Overall: a good, if not spectacular, sour cherry wild.
