375ml Bottle received in trade with mtomlins - thanks!

Appearance - Burgundy colour with a small size fizzy/frothy beige head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Cherries, vinegar, Lemon

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste citric notes and fresh ripe cherries. There is also a light vinegar flavour and a light amount of barnyard funk. It ends with tart but not over the top cherry aftertaste.

Overall - Amazing how the cherries taste fresh and not artificial like they tend to do in other fruit/sour beers. Great balance and each sip brings out different nuances. Hard to find and pricier than other krieks, but worth it.
