Tasting Notes

From the brewery: "What began as a birthday gift, took on a life of its own. Proprietor David Walker cornered us one day and requested a sour cherry fermented beer for his 50th birthday. Done. A handful were sold at a Liberation, after which our loyal patrons demanded more. Voilà, Krieky Bones Batch #2! This beer begins its life as a Flanders Red style beer aged 24 months in a 2200 gallon French oak foeder. Sour Montmorency cherries are added and allowed a secondary fermentation. The aroma is of cherry pie complete with flavors of pie crust and spicy notes. Vienna malt notes give way to an assertive acidity, and a bright carbonation. A santé!"

    What a beer! Lactic souring bacteria, tart red cherry juice, and oaky vanillin aromas are all present on the nose.Vienna malt, which is a bit toastier than pilsner or pale malt, was an excellent choice for the beer's base; it doesn't get lost in the mix but rather adds just enough malt flavor to cut through the fruit and acidity. This is a sour that is approachable yet nuanced enough for anyone to appreciate.
