Our take on the traditional old style or oud Kriek but with an added twist of fresh pommegranites added as well as sour cherries to the fermentation. Fermented in an American Oak white wine barrel for 1 year.

    RBSG09 notes. A standout for the night (and there was a lot of competition at the tasting). Great flavor combination dominated by sour cherries and a lasting finish of pomegranates and wood. Heavy for a lambic with caramel malt shining through the sour fruit, unusual for a kriek, but it worked for me. Appearance was a reddish brown with a nice enough head for a lambic. The sourness isn’t too intense although there is a healthy vinegar flavor to it. Some brett flavor.

    Bottle courtesty of the man himself at his place for the December NorCal tasting. Thanks Steve! Aroma that first hit me was the oak. Huge woody oak character, and then comes the cherry tartness and the funk. All of that off-set by some subtle white wine character. Appearance is red in color, reminded me of a clear red Christmas light, with a nice sudsy white head. Flavor is a nice combo of funk, tart cherries, sweet malts and a good dose of American oak. A very clean, but tart finish.

    Tasted on tap at the 2007 Bistro West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Festival. This lambic poured a deep reddish color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is tart, cherry, fruity and funky. Medium bodied lambic. Lots of tart cherry flavors are offset by some funk. Nice malt backbone., yet the tartness and cherry flavor predominate. Touch of oak as well. Nice beer. Nicely balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart and funky.
