Our non-traditional Cranberry Criek evolved by merging tart cranberries with sweet cherries, normally associated with a traditional Kriek, but in a kettle sour beer that is wonderfully intricate, balanced, fruity and tart. We then dry-hopped this crimson-colored beer for a touch of citrus aroma and flavor, adding another layer of complexity and a perfect finish. Cheers!

Can. Tart cherry aroma with notes of cranberry and some citrus hops. Pours clear amber colored with a thin white head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with tart cherry and citrus hops flavors. Finishes dry and tart with sour cranberry flavors. Pretty good, but almost too tart.

anstei (2832) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 5, 2018
Can. Pours clear amber. Aroma is softly fruity, almond, cherry. Body is medium, really sour, not tart though, low carbonation. Fruity, some cherries, and I guess cranberry. Not the easiest to drink, pinching sourness. Shortish but fruity palate. Good.

(Tap) hazy, bright orange amber colour with a small white head; aroma of fruit compote; sour flavour with a long, medium sour finish

12 oz via can from Molly's Spirits. Fruity, fresh and mildly tart with mild acidity and a light puckering feel. Light body with a slight watery feel and berry/cherry flavored finish.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a light rose color with a finger and a half of champagne-like foam that lingers. Tart lemon zest and cranberry skin. Absurdly tart on the palate, not really much nuance on as usual per Destihl. Super acidic and aggressive sour that leaves nothing to the imagination. This was embarrassingly amateurish side by side with Echt Kriekenbier.

Destihl Cranberry Criek On tap at Hops & Craft, pours a clear copper red with a small off-white head. Aroma reveals light tart cranberry and some lactic notes. Flavour is similar, with lots of tart cranberry, medium tactic notes and lots of acidity. Acidic, thin and abrasive. Not impressed.

rougeau13 (3311) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Can. Clear reddish-amber-orange with an off-white head. It actually looks right at home in this festive Christmas wine glass I poured it into. Aroma of cranberry, cherry and funky sourness. Tastes quite sour in the way a of a lemon. Fairly smooth and dry.

mar (5470) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Dark pink with a cotton candy head. Nose is cranberry, tart, acidic and sweet. Smooth palate, cranberry up front, acidic, lightly hopped and citrus finish.

yespr (49198) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2017
12 fl oz can. Pours clear and golden orange to amber. Small white head. Aroma is citric and solid cranberry. Citric and fruity. Dry and citric. Sourish finish.

deyholla (12702) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2017
Can. Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sour cranberry with a bit of acid and light grain underlying. Flavor is full of sour cranberry with a touch of grains and a hint of yogurt underlying.
