Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Cantillon stemmed taster glass. 2012 label, 2014 cork. Acquired in a trade.

Pours a deep cherry, maroon body with a quickly rising pink head that reduces at a moderate rate, leaving a thick ring of retention that sticks around for a while. Slightly fizzy.

On the nose is straight cherry pie, berries and tart fruit skins, slight funky mustiness, vinegar, and oak barrel.

Upon sipping I get notes of super tart, nearly sour cherries, light berry, dry white wine, lemon zest, light vinegar, lacto funk, light muted hops, ends with a tongue-drying tartness and citrus. Medium-high carbonation, very easy to drink, light body but packed full of flavors. Very nice.

Overall Lou Pepe Kriek was fantastic. A good amount of sour, nice amount of cherry without being over-fruited, and very smooth and drinkable. Worth seeking out!

Very nice beer. I had an old 2009 bottle 75cl with my dad. Delicious. Better than wine :)
