Served from cask at Drei Fonteinen into a tumbler as all lambic seems to be served in Payotenland. Perfect match for a Guinea Hen cooked in this same beer.

Appearance: hazy, almost murky purple-red body with a surprisingly thick frothy pink head that slowly dissipates to bubbly lace.

Aroma: Huge cherry aroma, ample wood, touches of lactic acid, hints of plastic tarp.

Taste: This is the real deal! A pefect blend of tart fresh cherries, lambic sourness, lactic acidity that adds a wonderful creaminess, and tannic qualities that add depth and character. Currants and to a much lesser degree plums and strawberries are also found. Outstanding.

Mouthfeel: Rich, creamy, moderately sour but quite tart, bubbly, surprisingly dry.

Drinkability: A plus.

Pours a nice reddish-ruby color. Not much retention and lacing
Smell - really nice smell of sour cherries and lacto.
Taste- follows the nose. Nice tartness,somewhat dry.
Feel - medium-light with moderate carb.
Overall - nice Kriek. I can see why this beer is so highly rated.

Enjoyed this at a recent Wild and Sour beer event called Funk'd. Really enjoyed this and compared to others I had of the style I believe this was my favorite. Great fruity notes and clean cherry finish with no waxy or bandaid finish....great Kriek!!!!
