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.

375 ml bottle into a flute glass. Bottled in 2011.

Pours a deep ruby, almost purple, with a two finger head on an average pour. Fairly opaque, lots of foamy cling. Smell is lots of malt, cherries, some yeast and purple grapes, a sweet, spicy aroma as it warms, like cinnamon. Taste is also a little malt forward, good amount of cherries, yeast. Also pick up the spice in the taste. Fairly sweet. A little tart, a little sour, but not a lot of either. Smooth, good carbonation, a little light bodied for the style.

A very solid Kriek, certainly a strong cherry presence in the smell and taste. Good price point. Well worth a purchase.

Looks good. Pretty pink head. Smells fruity, bit sour, limeade, cherry. Tastes much the same. Get more cherries there. Overall. Tasty enough. Not your thing exactly NYD. Pick it up if a friend comes who likes that style.

Deep cherry red and crystal-clear ruby under a light, with a foamy pink cap that crackles and pops. Aroma of cherries and oak with lots of funk that adds a gritty earthiness to the fruit. Not very sour, with a pleasantly dry finish that tingles with carbonation. Overall this is delicious but a little bit one dimensional. Could maybe use a little more sweetness, and/or a little more sourness to fill out the overall balance.
