Pale, hazy golden pour. Instant big, airy head fades fast. Tart, fruity nose. Sweet, but not necessarily strong cherry essences. Taste also builds on the tartness. I guess the Rainier cherries lend their own character to this, making it more of a straight up a sour than the traditional kriek.

Amazingly good kriek. Had it on draft from the brewery. Better than the Devils kriek, which was also great. Wish I could have sampled different vintages

This was two different beasts! First, did a decant pour which was brilliantly clear pale yellow, with an aroma full of sour cherries and lacto sourness. The taste was acidic with a dominant cherry tartness, and a soda like carbonation with no head or retention. Then poured the rest, and it became a cloudy orange juice looking beer, and a sweet cherry flavor and sone spice decided to show their faces. Wonderfully complex. Cheers!

Thanks to Thomas and Jenny for this one!
Pale gold with a spotty edge of lace, lightly hazy.
Big stonefruit aroma, peach and apricot, Rainier cherry, not your typical robitussin cherry from the usual suspects. Something a bit different and unique that works here.

Taste is nicely tart, acidic and tannic with noticeable cherry skin and pulpy stonefruit. Crisp and juicy, stimulates the salivary glands into overdrive. Overall it's really unique, Rainier is an interesting cherry variety.

Look : Lemon drop colored, 100% opaque

Smell : Slight Brett yeast, not much else going on here

Taste : Kick to the face. Sour Bretted yeast with hints of pineapple, black cherry, and raisin.

Feel : Creamy, largely carbonated, ends puckered

Overall : My favorite beer from these guys. Great Lambic.

Funky, Phenolic, Cherries, Fruity

Brewed with local Rainier cherries, fermented with will brettanomyces, aged for over a year on cherries, and bottled conditioned. Golden, cloudy, a short-lived white lace that falls flat. Musty, funky, medicinal, wood in the nose. Creamy, medium-bodied, semi-sweet cherries, fruity, light tartness, suggestions of nectarines, tannic, oak, bready yeast, dry finish. More body than others within the style, with a unique fruity, cherry flavor that sets it apart.

STYLE: Fruit Lambic | ABV: 10.3% | AVAILABILITY: Rotating
