2014 vintage poured from bottle at Cantillon in August 2017. Pours a nice purple with light purple head that quickly dissipates. Beautiful beer. Nose is woody, tons of sour cherries, earthy, and a bit viney. Taste is so smooth. Not much sourness, but a lot of cherries! I wouldn't call this an overly complex beer, but super tasty and smooth. Mouthfeel is perfect.

2014 bottle split between four people at the Cantillon tasting room after the tour.

Pours a pretty dark red with a pink head. Smells like cherry -- lots of cherry, with something of a jam character.

Taste is cherry and tartness -- interesting that the aroma seemed fairly sweet, but the taste is not. There's a slight bitterness to it that complements surprisingly nicely.

Mouthfeel is perfect, velvet smooth, exactly what I hope for from Cantillon. Overall, I think one of the best beers I've ever had.

Lou Pepe Kriek 14 from bottle, at Cantillon Brewery in Brussels, Belgium.

A deep clear, red appearance with abundant amount of light foam upon pour. Smell has an abundance of strong cherry aroma combined with some well balanced barnyard funk and wheat smell. Very complex taste. Some 'farm' flavors such as light cheese and wheat and big cherry flavors (but not overly sweet). Smooth aftertaste and sipper for sure.
