Huge sour fan -- belle vue and mort subite sweetened Krieks were my gateway drugs.

This year alone I have been lucky enough to get my mitts on some Cascade Kriek 2015 and Boon oud Kriek and they were flat out amazing. Also, my local beer church, indie ale house, does some world class sours that helps lessen the sting of stupid LCBO stocking like six bottles of anything good across the whole of Ontario.

But I digress-- onto this bad boy. I have dreamed of trying this for eons -- So when the opportunity arose I did back flips.

Wasn't disappointed.

Pretty much perfect -- EXCEPT -- a bit over carbonated and it must be said -- the boon oud Kriek, with its stone fruit taste component, might be a hair better.

Tart, just enough Brett funk, a big ol blast of lacto acidity (which I lurve). And a balanced cherry attack. Fantastic.

At Cantillon Brewery from bottle.

Raspberry red, very light hazy in appearance with a sizable foam head upon pour, which dissipates quickly. Smell is of raspberry, strawberry, cherry and other red fruits with a bit of oak. Taste follows the nose, but even through it's sour and fruity, it is not overly sweet (which is what a Cantillon employee told us is one of their goals). Light carbonation and easy to drink. I would definitely get this again and enjoy on a nice summer day.
