2008 label. Best kriek I've ever had and one of the best beers I've ever had, especially in the acidic category (up there with 2011 Framboos and VSB for me).

Deep red and cloudy with a nice pinkish white head. Nice retention.

Nose is straight jammy, cinnamon pie filling cherries with that Cantillon funk (which I think works the best with their fruited lambics).

Taste follows the nose completely.

Perfect acidity, carb and mouthfeel. Light and effervescent but with a fullness to it.

One of the best and my favorite Cantillon to date (right ahead of 2014 Fou).
