Poured from a 750 ml bottle at the Memphis Taproom while visiting Philadelphia earlier this year. Maybe I got a bum bottle or my tongue was off that night, but compared to 3F's Intense Red Kriek and Oude Kriek, which I love, I found this one overpoweringly and one-dimensionally tart, lacking the bright, distinct fruit character I was hoping for. Still a wonderful sour all things considered, but more assaultive and less complex than the other cherry 3Fs I've had.

March 2006 bottle.

A: Pinkish red rhubarb color with a pretty nice light pink head. Head retention is good this brew has tons of carbonation its downright spritzy.

S: Nince and tart. Wood, oak and black cherries consume the nose. Some light barnyard funk but nothing over the top. Nice and funky cherries.

Taste: One splash across the tongue and this one lets you know its for real. Tons of spritz with a rush of deep dark tart cherries. The oak aspects rise in the middle and the finish is very dry. Acid and barnyard funk are there in such a nice way. If you are looking for a panty waist fruity girly girls kriek this is not it. Think Gueuze meets Kriek and this is the result.

Mouthfeel: Champagne meets beer, in a way that can not be expressed.

Overall: A real nice drinking beer. Shared it with a wine loving buddy of mine and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Tons of flavor with an insane amount of spritz. The tartness of this one makes it extra special. If this is their Kriek, I can't wait to try their Gueuze that I have in the fridge.
