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!

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.

davidezdonz (608) - 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.

Bottle share: I want to drink this for the rest of my life. Amazing! Beautiful reddish brown color with no head. All fruit, light on the sour compared to others in this category. I prefer it as well. The sour thing has gotten a little out of control. This is so easy to drink, like the original sours from Belgium. WOW!
