Appearance: Red, rose, pink and orange all at oncelike a beautiful sunset. Aroma: Opens with a barnyard gambit, but quickly dissipates, allowing complex aromatics of cherries, wood, earth, and vanilla to come through. Flavor: The taste is full of sour cherries with hints of wildness and oak that blends well with the extreme acidity, and slight residual sweetness. Finish: Long, tart and fruity finish. Dry finish.
Each batch of its Kriek offers therefore different aromas and flavors only based on the century old knowledge of the Hanssens family. After the blending the Kriek (with 70 kg of black Belgian cherries per 600 Lt. barrel) is bottled, corked and stored in the cellar for secondary fermentation at 50o-55oF for over one year.
