A: The body is a dark dark ruby red almost purple color. There is a slight lacing on the top of the glass that is a white/pink hue.

S: You can smell the sour in this from across the room. Intense cherry and acidic sour aromas come off this beer.

T: Really really sour. A little too sour for such a low abv beer. If you are going to go that sour have a bigger body to back it up. I recognize that Krieks are not normally high abv, Armand should have gone a little lighter on the sour flavors. There are also some very sour cherry flavors that make this beer delicious.

M: Good body for a Kriek and great carbonation.

O: Great beer but not worth too much hassle to get. I would not buy this one again due to the price but it is a great beer.
