COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Kriek” means cherry, and we’ve made this Belgian-style ale our own by using Door County cherry juice and some Wisconsin organic malts. Beginning with a clear cherry top note, earthiness – funk, wet hay --and tartness become more pronounced with each sip, as do the Brett and lactic acid cultures. At 5%, this is a refreshing session beer that pairs well with foods.

Candi apple red pour with large pink head. Great cherry tart nose. A little medicinal, and phenolic on the flavor. Tart biting finish. Not bad, but not exactly a good kriek lambic.

Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Bestway in Greensboro, NC and shared at the 5/7/11 DC Ratebeer gathering. Pours a hazy red-orange color with a medium sized frothy pink head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart, earthy and sweet notes with berries and Lifesavers candy. The taste is tart beres and an earthy, slightly vegetal finish. Medium bodied.

Date: August 3, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Discount Liquor, Waukesha, WI Appearance: Translucent pinkish red and good amount of head with pinkish hue. Aroma: Sour cherry.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2011
amber pink pour with a pinkish head. aroma is cherry and horse blanket earthiness. Flavour is wooly (it makes sense to me), prickly, tart. Bit woody. I do get the olive in the finish as mentioned.

2.6
Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Bright red pour with a pink head, it doesn’t even look like beer. Fruity aroma. The slightly sour brew tastes like a cherry soda. Not bad, but I look for more complexity in my sours.

3.4
MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2011
red-grapefruit, wispy white head. Heavy cherry, light rind, sugar. Flavor is heavily sweet, light cherry, bit of acetone, light heat in finish, light olive bitterness in finish.

LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Not the best lambic in the world but still an incredible beer. Aroma was oddly very weak. A slight vinegar aroma with dust and grain. Pour was a beautiful deep red with a one finger pink head and a ton of sediment. Taste was delicious and sour. Cherry, vinegar and and a dustiness that is hard to describe. Slightly yeasty and notes of white bread. Nice strong prickly carbonation. Leaves the mouth sour. As far as lambics go, it’s sub par. As far as beer goes, it’s delicious

3.5
TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Deep pinkish red with a small white head. Nose has cherry, leather, barnyard. Flavor is a little watery, lots of carbonation, some cherry, some tartness. Not very complex and definitely low on the acidity, but one of the better "American fruit lambics" I have had.

3.5
emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Pours a murky bright ruby pink one finger of foamy pink head. Nose is nice enough, tart earthy cherry notes with some barnyard character and hints of acidity. Tart and acidic flavor with some cherry, little bit more phenolic than I’d like. Dry and effervescent palate.
