Mfielden says that no beer is perfect, that they approach perfection asymptotically. Apparently he has never had Schaerbeekse Kriek.

At first there isn't much to it - cherries, wood, cherry pits, lactic acid, and musk. But it fills the mouth without being heavy. It's fruit forward but not sweet. It is in fact perfectly balanced.

I bought multiple bottles to confirm. Each expressed the same delicate funk, the same full figured fruit, the same balance. One last bottle awaits me in the cellar, but it won't wait long. Who would have thought perfection would be pink.
