look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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 lambics ever! It looks very attractive. clear red color with pink head. It smells strongly of cherry, but tartness and barnyard smells are in the background. Taste is dominated by acidic sour cherries with wooden notes. Little puckering, acidic bite on the palate. Dry finish. A masterpiece!

2015 bottle, drank in 2017, january... Beer in perfectly style... color clear ruby... pink foam almost absent... nose acid and cherry... mouth with strong acid start, after a few drinks there is more balance and cherries prevail... soft and intense, maybe not too persistent, , dry throughout all drink, clean, great beer

Pours a dark clear ruby color with a light pink head. The nose is acidic, slightly funky and has a touch of cherries. The taste is nicely sour on the front end, with a good level of funk and cherry presence. The mouthfeel is full with good carbonation. Overall, it's just what I'm looking for in a Kriek with no overpowering acidity or funk and of course a good cherry presence.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours clear, blood red with a tall, sudzy pink head that falls quickly with no lacing or collar. The nose is cherry, black pepper, nice funky Brett. The taste is a strong one-two punch of acidic, tart, bright cherry and light funky Brett with oaky vinous notes. Nice lively carbonation and light body. A delicious lambic, I would love to see how the wild bugs develop this beer over time.
