COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Devilís Kriek employed a Flanders Red Ale base prior to the addition of 200 lbs of Bing Cherries from Mattís orchard in Duke Valley. The Devilís Kriek developed a classic Brett character typical of beers in the style and used a mixture of three yeast strains to complete itís mission to provide complexity.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2014
tepid cherry, effervescent, puffy large bubbled white head gone fast. Jammy berry nose, light booze with a balsamic twang, arsenic. Lightly Medicinal front palate, jammy cherry and moderate balsamic mid, heavy arsenic adds astringent bitterness and light paper before the juicy finish ends quite dry. Thin and sticky with tons of juicy explosion.

>> Thank you Kevin for the share! Clear deep red pour, no foam. Nose is chocolate, cranberry, chocolate cake. Taste is mild acetic, mild sugar, cranberry, red wine. Good. More like sour red with hints of sugar balance.

BrewGoblin (240) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Bright burgundy Batman! Not my favourite Sour but still not unenjoyabeer. Very cherry, but more like a cherry rhubarb pie. Quite sour but also quite one dimensional. A bit of lemon, leather, vanilla and barnyard but mostly sour cherries. Decent. Medium feel and carbonation.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle:   Soft Kriek nose, a little tart and a little sweet.   Smells somewhat promising.   Fairly soft on the tongue.   Unripened cherries as well as a bit of even ripened cherries. &nbps Not too sour, or bright.   A softer example.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Has a slight fake/artificial sugary aspect to it, a little like Duchesse.   Not all that bright and dry on the finish, which is what it really needs.   Very pedestrian.   Tiz okay.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Reddish pour, pink head. Green apples, unripe cherry notes, sour...overall this just isnít that great. Very much an odd apple juice flavor.

mikedR (1069) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Nice. Sourness is puckering, and while a primary note of the taste, isnít overwhelming. Cherry flavor is a bit subdued, but still comes through well.

BuckeyeBoy (2607) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 21, 2014
Spring cleaning notes. Tap at pub pours out a ruby red topped with a pinkish head. Nose is tart cherries and tons of wood. taste is more of the cherries some pie almost and lots of the wood notes.

500. Pours a murky, ruddied dark amber. Loose creamy grayish head that goes away quickly. Nice bursting juicy nose of cherries and plums from the yeast, plus some fresh sweet mild snack cherries. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Great acidity from the ferment blends back against a more mildly acidic fruit acidity profile. Great presence and mild complexity. Very pleasant and easy drinking twist on a kriek, hides the alcohol well. Definitely worthy of a repeat.

Small bottle (12 ounces or so). A really nice presentation. Pours a deep ruby color with a small white head. A really nice almost lambic nose, fresh cherries, oak, sawdust. The flavor is great: big brett, tannins, a lively fizzy palate, vanilla, huge cherry sourness, this really reminds me of Kriek lambics. Quite good. Too expensive: 17$ or so, should be a 750 at least. But with that said, it is good.
