The oak barrel aging adde a dimension to this fruit beer that grounds the sweet and tart cherries. Gives body more depth and tang for the style. Sweet and acidic on the finish. Pleasant, especially in the summertime outside at the cafe

Vibrant, ruby red body, near clear, thinly veiled by a rose coloured head that fades to a rim within the minute. Intriguing and exciting. Swirl it around a bunch and it picks right back up, so the carbonation is there.
Very light aroma, unless I'm getting a cold. Berries, bubblegum, woodiness, funk.
Delicate and refined red apple, raspberry, cherry fruit flavour, lightly tart, complimented beautifully by a sense of Christmas spice - clove or nutmeg. In the finish an odd bitterness kicks in, difficult to identify, but reading the ingredients it must be the herbs. It's unique, somewhat medicinal. Super dry finish, long, with a variety of curious flavours lingering. Medium body and carbonation. Soft on the tongue, with a sense of being powdery.

Lot's of weird things going on with this, it's certainly a different experience - and an enjoyable one. Great mix of fruit, tart, funk, woodiness, herbal notes and distinct mouthfeel. Try it if you find it, on it's own, and contemplate it's definition. Just plain interesting.

As much as I am no fan of sour beer, I had a good feeling about this one and it didn't disappoint. Tart it is, yes, but not to a putrid extent. With a 25% cherry inclusion (there is no other fruit within), it obviously dominates, but there is enough herbs to balance things to an accepted degree. I think I would drink this again!

Bottle poorer in tulip glass.

Some alcohol, wood and a lot of fruits in the nose.

The taste is very fruity.
It has an abv of 8.5, but easy drinkable.

On tap at Cafe Rose Red in Bruges.

Pours a blood red with thick foam.

Smell is very berry forward, tons of raspberries, cherries and red currants.

Taste is tart, with loads of the berries from the smell. Pretty complex, and no hint at all of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very enjoyable tart fruit beer. Lots of berries!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy black cherries, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, cherry skin/pits, plum, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, oak, almond, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of leathery/musty funk, vanilla, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrel, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge sour/tart/tangy black cherries, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, cherry skin/pits, plum, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, oak, almond, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with lighter notes of leathery/musty funk, vanilla, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness and yeast/oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of sour/tangy black cherries, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, cherry skin/pits, plum, lemon, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, grass, oak, almond, pepper, wheat, cracker, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrel, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/sourness balance. Lightly increasing pucker, but not astringent on sourness. Light-moderate dryness from tart/sourness and yeast/oak spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately acidic/tannic/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 8.5%. Overall this is a fantastic imperial kriek! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrel, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, even with the increasing lactic/tannic/drying finish. Even though this is listed as a fruit beer, this could easily be classified as a Oude Kriek lambic right now. Likely has a good amount of age on it. Nice amounts of Brett funk, Lacto, and oak; but not huge amounts like others. Nice jammy fruit presence and solid malt balance. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bottle shared thanks to kermis and deanso. Clear ruby pour with a thin pink head. Notes of cherries, cherry jam, almonds. Medium body, medium carbonation and a sour and lightly sweet finish.

Brown or dark red color. Lightly pink head. Smells like sweet-sour cherry. Tastes like a slightly sweeter (but not sweet) kriek, and that's a good thing. Pretty good stuff!
