Hearty pink liquid, amazing clarity, lighter pink substantial head. Aroma was drops heavy sour cherry notes, not dark cherry, bright red, bitter, powerful yet light cherry. Even with that amount, a legit +9 on the 1-10 scale, some oak still comes in.

Taste hits that 8 note on the scale, massive cherry drop only to be rivaled by LPK from Cantillon probably. Floats over the wheat. Was surprised when writing my review today to see this is now retired. Glad I got a few when I did, high ass price tag on these, but you're entitled to it on your birthday friend.

Massive thanks to Francois for sharing. 2007 vintage.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a dark cherry juice hue with a thin head that faded immediately to leave thin thin wisps.

S - Aromas of dry tart cherries, light vanilla. Incredibly fragrant cherries and pits.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, incredibly dry cherries, just intense tasty cherry notes. Good funky musty basement. Really good, great tart cherry notes.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this beer was really excellent. Wonderful cherry notes, excellent tartness really well crafted. Holy cow.

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