On tap at the John Barleycorns McMenamins. For a Kriek beer I thought this was great, I usually donít really like fruit beers and the sour ones usually donít rate all that well with me. This brew was very subtle with the fruit compared to other kriek beers iíve had. Pours a hazy darker orange with a red hue, and a smooth off-white head from the nitro tap. Raspberry/ Apricot aroma with some nice floral hops alongside. Taste started slightly sweet with the fruit carring through till the finish and a great balance without a ton of sourness. Very smooth and drinkable.
