One year old bottle stored at home. Cloudy ruby red that reflects and absorbs light. Scant pinkish head evaporates in seconds. Aroma of sour cherries and lemon. Sour lip puckering cherry taste with musty dryness. Ages extremely well. A classic kriek, in a league of its own.

Poured into my Shelton Bros. sampler at "The Festival."

Beer was quite red, very pretty, not too much apparent carbonation or head.

The nose was quite tart, from the smell I really thought this was going to be one extremely sour beer.

The taste was surprisingly mild on the sour front, I would describe it as mildly tart and not at all in an acidic way that many sour beers develop. Definitely got some hints of cherries here, this was truly a delightful beer.
