Cascade Brewing Cascade Kriek Ale Flanders Red at 8.5% ABV (C$27.99 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 750 ml, no bottle date or best before, reviewed 16-Feb-2016)

Appearance: clear red-tinged amber-brown, one finger of creamy light purple head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark cherry, malt vinegar, oak, light earth. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high tart, mild bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, dry tart finish. (4/5)

Excellent. Dark cherries without a hint of cough syrup, and a lovely umame brown malt vinegar. A really nice kriek built on a solid Flanders Red base. (16/20)

My 219th from the 2010 Edition (208th from the 2013 edition), and 230th combining both editions.

8/10 #1001beers #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
