Bottle to tulip glass. Straight from the cellar. Slightly below room temperature. Some what viscous. Shared with Jake_ramrod.

A. Fairly aggressive pour yields a dark ruby color and light ruby head of one finger. Mildly effervescent.

S. Tart. Tart cherries mainly. Sour yeast and bacteria. Fairly straight forward.

T. A little more going on compared to the nose. Medium tartness. Sour cherries certainly dominant with a noticeable neutral oak component. Minor notes of plumes, cranberries, and apples. Mucha fruit.

M. The viscosity thins out as it warms which makes it much more smooth. Low carbonation. Light body.

O. This is a beautiful kriek. Wonderful smell and taste. This maybe my favorite Cantillon (so far). I would certainly purchase this ale again. Certainly recommended.
