Collaboration with O'so Brewing Company

Door Kriek is a blend of lambic style beer that was aged in used french oak wine barrels for 18-24 months. It was then re-fermented with two pounds per gallon of tart cherries for three months. We are proud to be using 100% tart cherries grown by a small family farm operating in Door County, WI, an area long-famous for their superb cherry crops. Expect this Kriek to be tart yet balanced, complex yet delicate, and bursting with that pie-cherry flavor we love!

We recommend drinking Door Kriek in the first year, but it will age very well in the cellar.

Ruby red clean pour. Smell and taste are clone: huge tart cherries with building acidity, oak, and lighthearted musty funk with hints of vinous notes, currant, vinegar and a kiss of hay. Feel is more monotone with tart acidity carrying the load over time, full bodied yet light and artful. Doesn't have the complexity of the greats, but a damn good kriek, especially if you like them tart

2014 bottle. Reddish hue. Fairly effervescent. Flavor is cherries with a bit of acetone. I think we sat on this one too long. Overall, it was fair, but starting to head in the wrong direction

So i feel like if this had a cantillon label on it, people would be killing for it. The flavor is mild cherries (especially if they really put in 2lbs/gal, there is very minimal cherry flavor) with a very nice lambic backbone. Its pretty vinegary, not like an old LPG, but still rather vinegary. Overall this is a nice beer, but not what it was hyped to be
