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!

375ml corked bottle. Tart cherry aroma with notes of pie crust, funk, oak and pie spice. Pours deep reddish-amber colored with half a finger of white head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with tart cherry flavors with notes of pie crust as well as a bright lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry with cinnamon and other pie spices with Brett funkiness. Really wonderful sour beer.

EvanFriend (604) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Aroma is cherries and a woody, smoky scent. Flavor is also very cherry heavy, an assertive tartness, but not much else. Good, but not as complex as I’d hoped.
