2011 Sticker

750ml bottled 9/5/2015. Poured into a Cantillon stemmed glass

Appearance: Pours a dark ruby red color with a finger of a pink head that dissipates almost instantly. No retention or lacing. Body is dark, but only lightly hazy when held to light, with mild visible carbonation.

Smell: Cherry skins, juice and cherry pit. Very oaky with notes of hearty red wine, musty basement and hay.

Taste: Lots of whole sour cherry character. Like the aroma, it's not just cherry juice, but the entire cherry that comes through. There's also a good amount of barnyard funk (more than in the nose), hay, mild cheesiness and hints of vanilla and green apple. Sourness is medium.

Mouthfeel: Light-ish bodied a somewhat soft feel and mild carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Another great beer from Cantillon, and while I prefer this to the regular kriek, I'm not sure the gap is as wide as I was expecting. Still well worth seeking out though.
