Pours dark red almost purple with ruby highlights. Thin light pink head that recedes quickly. No real lacing. Pretty clear.

Aroma of rich tart cherries. Vanilla, almond, and oak. Very rich and complex. Earthy, mushroomy funk lingers in the background along with lactic acid, but cherries take the forefront. Super jammy and lovely. Even some spices as well.

Tart cherries upfront followed by lactic acid. Rich cherries hit mid palate with oak and earthy brett. Lambic expresses itself more so in the flavor. Mushroom and tea, barnyard. Fruity and juicy.

Medium carbonation with a slick full body (but not thick). Medium tannins and bone dry.

A classic, excellent kriek. Lots of complex rich cherry flavor with a solid lambic underneath.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Has an aesthetically pleasing, pinkish-red froth that devolves slowly. Color is bright crimson.

A tart cherry and slightly funky aroma assault precedes some slightly medicinal notes and oak.

The cherry is bold up front of course, but it also has a handful of cotton candy, some shards of oak, a pinch of vanilla and a dash of vinegar to balance.

Dry through and through and almost sprightly.

Has just enough of everything and not too much of anything, and that's how it should be.
