When I opened up the bottle I got a slight almost cinnamon smell, some lactic acid, and some cherry. The flavor is an assertaive, but pleasant acidity with some cherry, spiciness (like cinnamon), some earthiness, and oak. The beer has a prickly carbonation and is a great sipper. A very good kriek. However, I would have appreciated a little more complexity from this beer.

here we go!
very attractive dark pink color with light pink head, amazing!
smells strongly of cherries, lambic yeast's barnyard esters and slight vinegar.
what a delicious sourness! it tastes acidic sourness with cherries, slightly musty and vinous. not overly sour, perfectly balanced taste.
light bodied and effervescent. softly astringent. crispy mouthfeel. dry finish.
this is the meaning of perfection. delicious, highly drinkable and refresher. respect!

Pours a dark red with loads of carbonation and a two finger head. Smells of sour cherry, apple, and funk. Taste has plenty of sour sucker punch, dry at the end. Palate clearing dry fizz feel in the mouth. Overall, quite enjoyable.

Cloudy red with a large pink head. Dry, almost yeasty aroma with fresh cherry behind. Sour flavor with perfectly light cherry. Somewhat creamy feel for the style. Good carbonation. Tasty.
