750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2009 bottle. Bottled September 1, 2011.

Appearance - Bright pink with a faint pink head. Thick collar. Hazy.

Smell - Really nice cherry flavor. Deep cherry flavor. Oaky and vanilla is very strong. A ton oof acidity but not a ton of funk.

Taste - Sour cherries. Lots of oak. Vanilla. Funk is much stronger. Barnyard is more prominent here too. The cherries are the star of the show though.

Mouthfeel - Dry, very sour. Medium body.

Overall - Fantastic cherry flavor. Best characteristic of this beer.

750ml. bottle at bierbistro split with Liam

Nice deep red colour, with a cap of white head, good retention, little lace. Smell is funky, sweet cherry still very much upfront, light balsamic, acidic, overall very nice mix of sweet and sour cherry with a big funk present. Taste is sour and puckering up front, big acidity followed by sweet cherry that cuts the acidic flavours nicely, balsamic, lemon and puckering fruits toward finish, drying finish. Light-medium carbonation, medium bodied, nice crisp mouthfeel. Fantastic stuff, less sour than the Bio Kriek but more complex and well rounded, certainly a world beater.
