Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Simple good pop off the cork, Vintage 2013.

Deep purple and red body color, dark and filled with fine pink rising faint carbonation, that rips fast through the sides of the glass. Minimal head creation, but some is there, a pink hue, slightly pinhead bubbly but a creamy tilted collar is always present. Very solid lambic.

Even better nose. Bouquet is of soft cherry but excellent funk earth and sharp gueuze like hotness. Excellent garden like dry herbs, very subtle to match with this really nice cherry aroma. Gets into a funky taffy candy like quality as well. Just superb.

Palate is just sinful and fantastic. Hot earthy warm cherries, and explosive popping mouthfeel. Carbonation gets into champagne but with thicker malt depth, and juiced cherry qualities. Lemon drop qualities, and very light tonic flavors in the mid palate, with a big earth and almost mint sage qualities in the aftertaste. Heavily green herbed finish, garden and soil fresh. Fruit angle manages excellent balance of funk and mild sugars, not even a touch sweet or even syrupy.

An excellent guezue earthen like kriek, one that has really developed nicely and very memorable.

2014 Vintage -
Pours deep ruby red with white head that quickly falls to a ring. Aroma of cherries, red grape, slight plum, earthy funk, oak, very very slight balsalmic. Flavor is like the aroma, a big sour cherry bomb with nice earthy undertones, malt and hay. Slight tannic quality from the barrel. The feel is light and dry w/high carbonation. Tasty Kriek.

from State Line Liquors. A wonderful geuze. Wonderful aroma for the style. What fruit was naturally imparted? This is a bit aged, but still good for another two decades. Funky bold, a white head on creamy yellow with active bubbles. By itself. Oal, sour, very drinkable and satsifying. Good carbontion.

Color is ruby red.
Solid head on the beer from the pour with nominal retention for the style. Sugary with Belgian yeast pull on the tongue. The tart is higher than usual but is very much welcomed. Cherries is dominate in the flavor and has a nice sour taste. This beer is beautifully done and will drink many more of these in the future.
