COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Ale fermented with sour cherries

What began as a birthday gift, took on a life of its own. Proprietor David Walker cornered us one day and requested a sour cherry fermented beer for his 50th birthday. Done. A handful were sold at a Liberation, after which our loyal patrons demanded more. Voilà, Krieky Bones Batch #2! This beer begins its life as a Flanders Red style beer aged 24 months in a 2200 gallon French oak foeder. Sour Montmorency cherries are added and allowed a secondary fermentation. The aroma is of cherry pie complete with flavors of pie crust and spicy notes. Vienna malt notes give way to an assertive acidity, and a bright carbonation. A santé!

Bottle from A.J.'s Beer Warehouse. Pours a beautiful light red with some carbonation. Aroma of cherries, oak, and spice. A touch too medicinal for me.

Dark red mahogany pour with an off white and nice lacing. Aroma is wood, funk, cherry, and acetic. Taste has more cherry fruitiness than the nose would suggest. Tart cherry and some sweet cherry notes, oak, lactic, tannic, and some earthy funk. Tart. Very dry. Light body.

Lubiere (14352) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2018
A reddish orange copper Kriek with a thin white head. In aroma, wonderful mix of maraschino cherries, light vanilla, wooden notes, light lactic notes, very classic. In mouth, a nice sweet cherry with light acidity, light Brett, some astringent notes, light horse blanket, very beautiful. On tap at Propagator location.

neongolden (2081) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2018
(On tap @ MBCC 2017 Blue Session, Copenhagen) Pours clear orange-red with a whitish head. Notes of malt with a bit of caramel sweetness, tart cherry, soft citrus, fairly strong oak, a bit of wet earthy funky Brett, acidic lemon juice and vinegar touches, soft marzipan/cherry pit notes. Moderately sour, finishing softly sour and somewhat dry with some tannic oak, cherry and cherry pit flavour. Light to medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Quite solid cherry sour with some malt stuffing, doesn't jump out at you but nothing off about it either.

It pours dull reddish with a white head. The aroma has cherries, vanilla, oak, citrus and some vinegar. It has a medium light body that starts smooth and then has a bite with the aggressive carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes, but is more sour and has some peppery notes. The smooth oak and vanilla keeps things from being too rough. Nice.

BillWyce (1128) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Batch #003, bottle was 7 months old when consumed. Pours hazy red-amber with a 2-finger off-white head. Lots of bubbling along the wall of the glass. Aroma of sour yeast funk mixed with a tart cherry note. Medium body with a bit of oil to it. Dry finish with a touch of astringency. Cherry flavor, reminiscent of pie, mixed with funky, sour yeast. A bit of a malt note underneath.

4.2
davidezdonz (647) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 20, 2017
A 375ml corked and caged bottle. Batch No. 003, bottled on 26th September 2016. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a clear reddish dark copper colour with a big two finger white head that had great retention while leaving some nice lacing. Aromas are tart, sweet and sour, cherry with only hints of funk and vinegar. Tastes tart, lightly sour, cherry, oak and vanilla with hints of almond. Light to medium bodied with nice high carbonation. Overall very nice and easy to drink with good cherry flavours.
