The pour was a clear medium cranberry red with a large (2-3 finger) pink rocky head that diminished at a rapid steady pace, down to a medium sudsy film and had excellent sticky sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of sweet bread malts and a funky barnyard Belgian yeast with notes of cherries, candi sugar and a hint of cask.
The taste was moderately sweet and just a tad malty with a huge fruitiness that was present throughout, giving way to a creeping mild sourness in around the middle with the finish being moderately yeasty with a strong fruity overtone. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a mildly sweet fruity tartness fading from the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was somewhat light in body with a mildly dry texture and a champagne-like carbonation.
Overall this was a very good tasting Kriek that possessed a nice light sourness blended with a bold yeasty fruitiness, which did a great job of totally concealing the high ABV, making this Lambic extremely smooth, easy to drink and very enjoyable...
