Originally reviewed March 31, 2007. 2004. Pizza Port Belgian Beer Fest. On tap. Vivid, exciting bright real red fresh cherry juice vibrance, alive with dripping moisture and a wildness of the pits. Florid and bright vermillion, with a rose fringe and blush head. Flavor is a sweet, chirping acidity in the note of perfected aged cherry alcohols, fresh flesh and pining pits. Amazing balance derived singularly from the fruit. All around stunning.

Had this on tap at Monks. Slightly cloudy dark red low carbonated look in the glass. Nice cherry/musty nose. Intense sour cherry hourse blanket barnyard laden taste. Abusive to the palate. As you drink the brew mellows on the back of the tongue and refreshes. I liked it but this is sure not for everyone due to it's intensity. Viscous mouth with a dry tart cherry finish. Crafted and blended by an artist. An experience.. not just a beer, and not one you could drink alot of in a row but a great apartif.

Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek

Appearance: cherry red, small head, and slight lacing.

Smell: sourness, slight cherry.

Taste: sharp sweettart sourness, spices, and cherries.

Mouthfeel: potent and bitter.

It is in your face with the first sip. This is an explosive, sour kriek.

Bottle, generously shared by Sammy. Sampled with many others. Slightly hazed cherry red with a foamy pink head. Very enticing aroma of sour cherry, funk, wood, yeast. Mouth watering. Extremely tart with sour cherry and strawberry, highly acidic, with yeasty funk and woody notes. Palate cleansing, refreshing, medium body with mouth puckering finish. Excellent tart cherry aftertaste. Great beer, thanks Sam!2003 Vintage.
