Batch 2 (I think) I didn't record the bottle date.

A: Bright ruby red color with deeper mahogany hues. Very good clarity at the beginning of the bottle then becomes cloudy with the last few pours. Pours a reddish head - not as vibrant as others - that quickly retreats to a minimal rim.

S: Big time tart. A nice balance of cherries, raspberries, and cranberries, not dominated by a specific fruit. Strong oak flavor and a sour yeast and bug finish.

T: The taste follows the nose. Very tart and packed with a blend of fruits that were found in the nose. The wild spores of Belgium come through in every sip. A nice backing of oak and sour yeast. I get a slight metallic taste, not unpleasant, but something I cannot describe differently. I find this in a lot of excellent Krieks.

M: This is my favorite part. As each sip brings a delightful pucker, the finish is super clean and crisp. High carbonation with is my preference. Light body. In no way syrupy.

O: This was a treat. I find this up there with the biggest of Belgium fruited sours. Packed with excellent flavors that develop from a combination of the yeast, oak, and finally the fruit. I think this is worth the hassle/price. I strolled to my favorite/local pub and was lucky to see it on the menu. But I would go out of my way next time.
