Medium-tart sour base but with a sweet cherry overtone. Not very funky. Cherry is a bit sweeter than I'm used to for this style of beer, so it feels more like a New Glarus-type beer than a regular Kriek. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

So perfectly balanced... Fruit is perfectly balanced by the sour and just that hint of mustiness.
