A - Murky red, burgundy colored body, with a light pink-purple head that fades quickly to wisps, and lots of lacing.

S - Juicy fruit notes, coupled with a backgrounded acidity and funk.

T - Front is all about cherry flesh and juiciness, then the fermented acidity comes out in the middle, and fades to a sweet fruity close. It is all very good, but the tilt is a bit sweet for my taste.

M - Mild carbonation and acidity are not quite enough to avoid a slightly cloying weight in the close.

O - What is good here is very good - the beer elements are subtle and yet full. The issue is that the result is too sweet for my taste. If the sweetness were a bit more subtle, I would embrace this more. That said, it is a fine example of this kind of lambic.

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.
