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 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!

Had this from a bottle before but this one is on tap at PreFunk Boise cloudy reddish light amber. Thin lingering white head and lacing. Nice light clean tart aroma. Lactic and stinging sourness. Decent cherry flavors. Not as good as the Brettta Rose (Raspberry) but a great clean tart fruit sour. Mostly straight up lacto but a little musty funk to make it interesting .
