2012 vintage from a 375 ml bottle. One of the most beautiful beers I have ever seen - stunning red color. Funky aroma with a less funky flavor. Very good Kriek, although I think I like 3F Oude Kriek a bit better.

Appearance- The beer was a murky red color with white bubbles.

Smell - The sour notes were downright pungent but you really get cherries.

Taste - There was a very tart and vinegary cherry presence. The cherry seems to become richer within the taste. As it wears on, it almost seems like cherry pie filling. The tartness is rich and refreshing.

Mouthfeel - One might not expect this style to be so thick. Yet it coats the tongue nicely.

Overall - This is a fantastic beer.
