Poured from a 375 cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is ruby red, vibrant and crystal clear, with no head. Aromas of tart and sweet cherries forward, with some tart white wine dryness throughout, and hints of earth and funk. Mostly fruit sweet and tart, though. Flavors are tart and sweet cherry forward, rich in actual fruit characteristics, with some dark cherry components in there, as well. Subtle sour notes here and there, puckering the mouth a bit, with some terrior notes and a wine-like dryness. The body is slick and light, but not overly crisp or acidic. Good, smooth, light balance to be incredibly drinkable. The aftertaste is all cherry fruit, with some hints of tart and sour darting in and out, as well as some funky notes accenting the palate. The finish is crisp, dry to the point of bordering on astringent, and tart, with a lingering cherry note. Very good beer.

Pours a dark reddish plum. Honestly, it looks like a cherry. It's that dark burgandy, magenta in the light. It's a gorgeous looking beer. Cherries in the aroma along with some mildewy funk. Mostly getting candied sweetness though. Getting some cherry and lime flavors. It's a little flat. This is a 2014 bottle, so I don't know if some of the carb has escaped. There's definitely some limey barnyard funk. It's not too acidic, which is very important to me. I certainly don't feel like this is going to tear the enamel off my teeth. A very good kriek.
