This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a pure pink color with a fairly thick white foamy head. As the head dissipated, a semi-slim lacing slid down the glass. The smell started off with a nice sour to tart cherry that sweetens as it warms. The flavor starts off with the same sour to tart cherry. As it starts to warm, it gets a slightly sticky sweet fruity aftertaste with a semi wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. A crisp settling refreshingness rolls over my palate sweetly. Overall, I say this was a wonderful fruit lambic that I would love to have again.

A- Beautiful red body with some floaters in the latter pours. Creamy and fluffy pink cap good retention falls to a big belt around the edges. Thin sheets of lace stick around the glass.

S- Cherry. Mostly the cherries here with some of the lactic and funk. Wet oak vinous wood. Intense lactic with time. Lemons. Lactic cherries.

T- Cherries are once again massive but do not drown out the delicate lambic base. Cherry pits are huge, just fresh and beautiful fruit. Lactic acid barrage. A bit of musty wine and Brett. Oak wood. Whole cherries. A hint of cherry sweets.

MF- Medium high carbonation. Slick and oily acidic sourness grips the palate. Light-medium body and mostly dry.

A heaping load of good cherries, with the flesh and pits coming up big time. Heavy lactic sourness, vinous wood and a bit of musty funk round it out for an excellent lambic brew.

Look: Deep red/burgundy with two inch head. Medium carbonation.
Smell: Cherries, oak, wood, and blackberries.
Taste: Cherries, vanilla, not very tart at all. Not much oak, either. Tastes a bit like a Berliner Weiss to me.
Mouthfeel: Light and creamy. Not all that complex.
Overall: I love kreiks, and this is a good one, but I'm looking for more complexity and not nearly tart enough.
