Pours a light red with no head but visible carbonation. Aroma of oak, funk and cherries, just as any good kriek. Taste and mouthfeel is where this really shines. Taste rich of cherries, oak and funk back up the cherries nicely. Tart like no other I've had, mouth puckering in the best way possible. This is a real treat

Pours a dark red color with a light pink head. Scent is funky as shit with sweaty gym socks and sweet cherries. Tons of barnyard funk and tart cherry aroma. Not nearly as funky as the regular kriek from 3F though. Taste is immediately sour cherry and biting vinegar. Tons of sour and barrel flavors. Lovely barnyard funk. Awesome cherry flavors. Mouthfeel is sour and sticky on the teeth...medium bodied. Drinkability is high. Overall, this is an amazing kriek lambic. I wish I could do a side by side with the regular kriek from this awesome brewery. 3F never lets me down.
