We’ve always been massive fans of traditional Belgian Kriek Ales and when the opportunity popped up to get our hands on some fine local Cherries, we jumped at the chance. The base for this beer is a barrel-fermented sour red, fermented and aged with our house mixed culture in old french-oak wine barrels. Two barrels were selected at 9 months of age and transferred onto 200kg of local Bing cherry skins and stones. After 4 months of maceration the intensely flavoured beer was racked and blended with two more barrels of the same base beer. Fruit ratio after blending was 260g/L, which equates to roughly 650g/L of whole fruit. Bottled in March 2020 at an average age of 10 months, this beer has a deep red hue, intense bright fruit character, surprisingly full mouthfeel (the result of pediococcus bacteria in our house culture), and a complex combination of fruit, malt, oak and fermentation character.⁠
