COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Steve took his Belgian Amber Ale and re-fermented it in a merlot cask with 100# of sweet Michigan cherries from Husteds Farm Market. He than moved the resulting beer into another cask with 30# of tart cherries. 5 fermentations due to wild yeast and 9 months later, we have our version of a Belgian Kriek. Named after our good friend and musician, April Verch.

Clownoisseur (453) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
On tap at The Livery 9th Anniversary party. Pours is a hazy amber, maroon hues, small bubbly head. Aromas of cherry chapstick, wet oak, cobweb and a light spice. Taste is loaded with tart cherry flavors. I wish a higher carbonation would have pushed them further. Still, the mouthfeel was of a nice, medium-bodied beer. Plenty of tartness and acidity creep into the finish. More oak, cherry and funk culminate in a harmonious finish. Great stuff!
