Pours a lovely red with a pink head, smells strongly of cherries and the taste follows. Far more subtle than I imagined, but an extremely drinkable beer at 4% that I would drink often if I could. For it to be perfect I would like a little bit more of a punch of flavor, but that doesn't negatively impact the beer, just makes it not perfect for my tastes. It's a lovely beer that I will try and get my hands on veyr often.

Sweet, tart, and with a uniquely buttery taste, this is a wonderful kriek.

4% ABV.
Pours clear red with nice creamy pink head, moderate retention. Smell - cherries, taste - tart cherries and some yeast funk. Ample drinkability, refreshing, but not as gorgeous.
