COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Kriek” means cherry, and we’ve made this Belgian-style ale our own by using Door County cherry juice and some Wisconsin organic malts. Beginning with a clear cherry top note, earthiness – funk, wet hay --and tartness become more pronounced with each sip, as do the Brett and lactic acid cultures. At 5%, this is a refreshing session beer that pairs well with foods.

Pours unclear dark reddish. Nice fizzy pinkish white head, dissipating. Aroma is sweet, fruity, funky. Cherry juice. Yeasty. Sour. Musty. Medium body. Slick. Yeasty and fruity. Very mild tartness. Light acidic. Finishes sweet dark cherry barnyard. Not a lot going on really. The nose promises more. Was interesting to try.

12 oz bottle from ledgers. It pours a hazy reddish pink color with an off white head. The aroma is surprisingly complex with cherry, funk and a nice mineral quality. The flavor is a bit more mild than the aroma with more funk and subdued cherry notes. Pretty well balanced between sweet cherries and sour funk. I was shocked by this one. Very good sour punch with significant cherry character without any hints of solvents or vinegar. Pretty damn good for $2.34 a bottle. I wish there was more.

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bright pink color with a low, light pink head that fades very quickly. Lot of carbonation present in the brew. Aroma has a strong sour smell, mild cherry and not much else. Flavor has a good sourness up front, modest cherry sweetness/tartness in the middle but finishes with a good sourness. Very fizzy feeling, light body, slightly slick feeling on the tongue at the end. Overall a good lambic. I enjoyed the pure sour taste with only a slight hint of tartness and sourness from the fruit. I think I will try an find this one again.

Bottle at Max’s tasting. Pours pinkish red with pink head. Nose and taste of cherry juice, malt, light tartness and old cherries. Lighter medium body. Okay.

At Max’s tasting. Sour, tart cherry on nose. The appearance is cloudy red, white head. The flavor is sour, acidic, chalk, tart cherry. The finish is chalky, tart cherry. Medium in body. Not good, not bad.

Bottle. Ruby pour with beige head. Tart cherry and some sour aromas. Flavor doesn’t match aroma fruit or tartness but also not terrible.

Pour at Autumn Brew Review. Tart but not much complexity. Nice cherry to it but just not much going on in here.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
A pink burgundy kriek with a thick rosy frothy head. In aroma, a nice classic chery pulp with smooth lactic notes, smooth Brett, earthy. In mouth, a smooth cherry candy with light Certs notes, Brett, lactic and acetic acids, not too much, faint barnyard and cheese and finale, this one got better with age (about 2 years old).
