COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey. A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with. One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.

The colour is like old Liefmans kriek used to be: dark-red, trouble, deep. Nose of old cherries, fresh cherrypie, "boerejongens" (=krieken on jenever). Aromas of old oak, fruit - but cherries only because known - some liquorice, old slivovitch. Taste is sweet with fruit-sourish framing. Most of the flavours are relatively quickly gone, except for the "boerejongens" -taste which goes on and on. This is a world-beater, if ever I've tasted one.

On tap GABF ’02: Light brown color, sweet cherry aroma, syrupy palate, heavy sweetness. This is more like a port or wine than beer, the liquid sticks to your tongue and won’t let go. Wow.

GABF 2002: Dark red colour. Intense raspberry aroma. Nice complex fruity flavour, but perhaps not for me.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2002
A winner here. Very smooth and rich, winey, but not too much so like the 15th anniversary. Would buy this agin, if I could find it.

PhillyBeer2112 (2861) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
GABF 2002: Rich and strong aroma, like brandy and sherry, very winey. Sherry and Madeira flavors. Strong, fruity, plummy and raisiny. Strong, souring, alcoholic finish.
