Pours a murky brown cherry ruby. Off white head with the slightest pink hue.

Cherry pie filling and some light funk. Has a little cough syrup flavor. Very sweet. Minimal tartness on the back end.

Light bodied. Fairly clean. Finishes with fruit.

Not the best example of a kriek, but very easy to drink. Just to sweet, syrupy, fruity for me. Reminds me a bit of a flanders oude bruin that isn't very sour.

A: Dark ruby purple-red.

S: Tart cherries. Very little must/funk character coming through.

T: Sweet cherries with very little tartness. Minimal tannin astringency on the finish. Pretty one sided taste.

M: Medium-light bodied due to the residual sugar. The finish is slightly dry. Carbonation could be a bit more effervescent, but that is just personal preference.

O: It is not a bad beer, but it's not great neither. It is just too sweet for my taste. I am glad i tried it, however, at $9.00/375ml bottle I'm a little disappointed.
