2009 vintage with a best-by date of 8-17-2031. 375ml bottle purchased at The Beer Trappe in Lexington, Kentucky.

Healthy pop from the cork followed by a dark red pour into a tulip glass, pink head retains nicely. Sourness and acidity is on the tame side, but good mix of cherry juice, woodsy mushroom funk, pleasant tartness, white wine grapes, wheat. Great mouthfeel, easy-going, drinkable and refreshing for a lambic, no hint of that 8%. A great subtle sour, nice mixing of sweet cherries, tartness, funk.

A: murky reddish brown. Super thick. Awesome for a kriek. Carbonation albiet little.

S: deep cherry and raspberry. Very nice.

T: Cherry sweet and slightly sour. Not too acidic and lacks vinegar for a Belgian kriek which is good. However there is a mineral component that comes in that is somewhat unpleasant.

M: holds very well. Not too sour and not over the top sweet. Good after taste.

O: great sour. Second bottle I have had and both were good. Very satisfying but that mineral component at the finish could be better but still almost sessionable for this relatively high abv kriek.
