I can’t really give this beer a favorable rating or fair for that matter I hate fruit beers

Born at a time when few American brewers were brave enough to create beers with wild yeast, Friek is a modern classic. Compared to many of the sour funk bombs and tart Lambics in circulation, Friek is a smooth, fruity ale thanks to its blending and barrel aging. Aroma presents raspberry and subtle cherry-soaked wood. Taste has the sweetness of raspberry and cherry with a bit of oak and citrus. Body is fizzy and acidic but doesn’t have the vinegar sharpness of some Sour/Lambic types. Despite its kinky name, Friek goes down easy.

HuskerTan (750) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. A- Sour, subtle cherries, oak, slight funk. A- Cranberry color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Sour, tart, subtle dark cherries, oak, funk, effervescent, champagne. P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, sour effervescent finish. O- The cherry and raspberries are very subtle here. It’s almost like drinking champagne with such high carbonation. Some notes of oak and plenty of tartness.

Blairgus (3178) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
18 May 2015, bottle. rosy orange, clear, some steady bubbles. nose is tart cherry and cherry pits. thin and fizzy. has some wine characteristics, moderately tart and fizzy to boot, cherry is noticeable but i think it is blended with another fruit or muted in some way. maybe the wood aging mellows it out. pretty good!

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Smells like a sour red. Taste is mild sour red with faint berry notes. No carbonation. Old bottle, possibly one of the first few batches. New batch: Much more fruit in the new batch. This batch actually has some carbonation.

Mep3222 (842) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Lactic tart aroma with raspberry and cherry aroma and some oaky woodyness. Sour maybe 7 of 10. Quite pucker sour, but still balanced and full flavored and awesome. Berry flavors are prominent, but not sugary sweet and they are nicely balanced with the sour and oaky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
