2011 750mL shared among seven. Kicking myself for not buying both bottles on the shelf at 35.99 in 2013.

This is an absolutely beautiful lambic. This bottle had no overpowering sourness mentioned in other reviews, also no medicine.

Amazingly clean with subtle funk, cherry, lightly sour, light body, mild carb with almost no pop when the cork came out, but nicely effervescent when swished. Again, it's a shame I didn't get both dusty bottles off the shelf. I would love to have this again, maybe with a few less people. Everyone absolutely loved it, even the "i don't really like sours" guy at the share.

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.
