Simply amazing. Layers of cherries that turn in to juice. The standard for krieks.

750 bottle into teku. Bottled 4/28/2010.

A: Pours a deep cranberry juice red with a minimal soft white head that faded into a lasting collar.
S: Musty attic, damp basement, and old oak barrel are prominent. The cherry adds a mellow sugary sweetness with tannic notes of cherry pits and skins. Mild cheesiness, faint tartness.
T: Sweeter, juicier, and fruitier than I expected from the nose. Cherries are fruit juice-like, but not cloying. The musty wood and light wheat base follow, with flavors of honey and earth in the finish. The tartness is very mild with just a kiss of bright acid. Flavors remind me of wildflower honey. Slight grape. Wheat and interesting yeast profile come through more as the beer reaches room temp.
M: Medium-light body, smooth and slick mouthfeel with a slight amount of gritty tannins. Drying finish, low acidity, low carbonation.
O: Four and a half years old has done this well. Not as tart or funky as I expected, but very woody with an interesting floral honey sweetness. Very delicious.
