Great beer, lots of cherry.

This is a classic lambic kriek. It pours a red beer. Smells of funky yeasts, and cherry candy. Taste is sour, yet it is also sweet. I could not help thinking of a cherry soda, since this beer has that type of feel. Not much foam forms at the head. This beer is pretty light, and I wouldn't say you can drink the whole bottle, but at least half easily.

The aroma offers oak, jammy cherries, cork, vinous qualities, a hint of funk.

The flavor follows with cherry candy, cherry jam, a stone like minerality throughout the mid palate onto the finish. Tart qualities are balanced by this minerality, along with hay like funk interweaving the experience.
