KRIEK

The Kriek, inspired by the time-honored Belgian Lambics fermented with cherries, is an incredibly refreshing and balanced take on the classic style. The beer aged in American Oak barrels for two years with a carefully selected blend of wild yeasts, eventually undergoing a secondary fermentation with world-famous Michigan tart cherries and sake yeast. The result is an ale with a bright garnet color and an intense cherry aroma, reminiscent of warm cherry pie, that is both sweet and tart, followed by a complex sour flavor and a crisp finish.
