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. Voil, 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 sant!

Flavor is tart/sour cherry with some wood astringency. The acidity is moderate, and the tart/sour is a bit above moderate. Reminds of the good ol days when sours were just getting started in the US. Krieky it is.
