L: It pours brilliant cherry red with a thin whit film on top over rapidly rising bubbles.

S: Light funk and light cherry aromas rise from the glass.

T: The palate has a nice, assertive cherry tartness that is medium to medium high. The cherry flavor is a little subdued and has some faint sherry notes, a touch of diacetyl (movie theater popcorn butter).

F: Very dry medium light body with medium high carbonation that provides a light carbonic bite. There is no astringency but there is a slight slickness on the tongue.

O: this is a very refreshing, elegant beer

one of the best fruit lambics ever! actually i’m not a kriek or cherry fan, but it hasn’t disturbing kriek taste. amazingly balanced, well carbonated, nice mouthfeel. a masterpiece!
