Intro: A 750ml bottle at the brewery. 2013 sticker, bottled on 10th September 2015. Poured into a Cantillon tasting glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly hazy dark ruby red with a three finger dark pink head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Marzipan, cherry and almonds dominate with hints of biscuit. Only some light sour tartness.
Taste: Cherry and almond dessert cake. Very nice. Light sour, tartness, oak and a touch of sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Another stunning Lou Pepe variety with great balance. Easy to drink and refreshing. I tried Framboise on the same day and not to take anything away from the Kriek as it is still really really good, but the Framboise was near perfect.
