Pours crimson with good clarity and a seductive pink undertone. The head is loose cherry tinted foam that fell fast. The nose is ripe black cherries. A hint of woody oak and a brief whiff of barnyard. Taste is sweet and ripe fruit that has a modicum of tartness on it in and of itself. The barnyard is not very prominent on the palate. The wood is airy and light. The carbonation is almost right but could stand a few more bubbles. The malt is a but a touch of crisp wheat and a hint of weight on the palate. The beer is dry. What it isn't - is sour or acidic. It lacks that boldness and it is sorely missed. While the fruit is lovely it just does not engage the palate fully without that aspect. It drinks easily and a bit too easily .

Thin pink head, decent retention, clear ruby red body.

Cherry aroma with wheat and straw.

Not particularly sweet, nor funky. Cherry pits come to mind. A little dirt in the flavor, giving it just a nice rustic edge. Balanced somewhere between the poorer and better krieks; right in the middle, really.

Soft mouthfeel, lively.

This is a drinkable lambic, but it doesn't stand out at all. I would prefer more sweetness, more tartness, and more evidence of wild yeast.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a deep reddish purple color with a small bubbly pink tinged head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of sweet and tart cherries dominate the aroma. Hints of tart lemon, balsamic, brown sugar, and earth round out the nose. The flavor is quite a bit sweeter than I was anticipating. Dark sugary sweet with plenty of tart and sweet cherry flavor but seriously lacking in much lactic tartness to offset the sweetness. Hints of almond flavor and a bit of earthiness round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Super easy to drink, more tart than a Lindemans but less than I was expecting.
