4oz pour at Brookland Pint during CBC 2017. Really dark. Didn't like it at first but it grew on me.

Had on tap at Resolute release fest at Brothers brewing in Harrisonburg. Very enjoyable Kriek. Impressive offering from Bullfrog, I will have to try more of them.

Poured on 9/24/16 at Aslin's 1st Anniversary celebration. These are my notes.

L: dark brown (!) little bit of head and ring

S: sour cherries and yeast

T: sour cherries and yeast

F: light bodied light to medium carb balance heroic in terms of keeping the sour cherries and yeast from running away with the whole thing. very drinkable.

O: Really wish I wasn't about 11 pours deep when this one came around. Think they do a great job of balancing the flavors and need to try this place next time I am in Williamsport, PA.

Plenty of sour cherry character without too much acidity. I also found some green apple, apple cider vinegar, and while I'm not sure if this is barrel aged, I think I did taste some oakiness. Not Rodenbach, but this was damn good!

tap

Pours a dark opaque brown, no light penetration except at the very edges, with a ring of eggshell head.

Smells of tart cherries, citrus, green apple, and malt vinegar.

Taste of cherries, apple, dry sourdough bread malts, and a hint of an oakey wood finish.

Medium body with a stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Delicious sour brew with lots of great flavor and aroma. Really wouldn't be able to separate this in a taste test from Flemish exports. Stands up to any of the better Flemish style sours you can get in my opinion.

Reminded me of Rodenbach Grand Cru. Slightly oaky and absolutely delicious! Bullfrog does amazing things with sour beers and I highly recommend trying them whenever they're on tap. Now if only I could get to their bottle releases...
