T: cherry pie filling up front with a blast of tart, tangy acidity in the finish, which continues to tingle in the aftertaste while a subtly sweetish cherry cordial smatters the palate floor... moreish, but nearly too candy-like

L: clear, ruby-colored liquid with a vibrant glow; pink swath of messy foam which settles into a gloriously craggy collar F: silky; punchy with its funky tartness... every nook of the palate feels coated with a thin, gummy film... the carbonation seems a bit weak, and over its course, the body gradually becomes more viscous, rounded, and syrupy, but short of laboriousIf you think you know what beer tastes like, try Lindemans Kriek and prepare to have your world turned upside down. I've had a sour beer or two before, but none were anywhere near as drinkable and delicious as what I'm sipping on as I write this.” Joe Connolly of Springdale sees Kriek Mythology as a “bridge between the old world and the new.” The base beer is split into bourbon barrels and aged on whole cherries. “After marrying the barrels together, we dose this beer with cherry juice and ferment out a bit further,” Connolly shared. “The result of this — and bottle conditioning — means that we create a beer ideal for cellaring.” Our bottle of Mythology had been in our collection for several months and has taken on a rich, tart cherry characteristic with maybe even a subtle dark chocolate note. S: not like cherry pie, more like cherry cough drop, with a vaguely medicinal lozenge overtone... like their other fruit-flavored brands, excellent intensity if a touch blaringly muddy in expression... little sense of funk, even less if any malt/wheat character We've already told you that our family never does anything the way other people do. Kriek Lindemans is a good example of that.

Even more important to Krieks than color, though, is authenticity in flavor. “The style hinges on the quality of the fruit,” Priest contends. “The quality of the underlying beer is important and needs to be complementary, but if it’s even a bit boring that can be a perfectly serviceable canvas for exemplary fruit. I reject any beer hoping to approximate the character with syrups or flavorings or extracts. You can’t fake cherry character… you need real cherries.” 8 of the Best Cherry Beers Kriek The only reason I can't rate it higher is that it is too expensive :-(, and it doesn't really taste like an ale. What makes this traditional kriek special is that it is brewed with whole cherries. Since real Schaerbeek cherries are scarce, Lindemans Brewery has found their perfect equivalence elsewhere in Europe. Our meeting with American importer Charles Finkel in the 1970s revolutionised the fruit beer segment. Charles convinced us to export our old kriek to the United States by boat. What we had not thought of is that the movement of the waves would reactivate the fermentation process and cause the corks to pop during the trip. It was like something out of The Adventures of Tintin. To prevent that from happening, we therefore developed an alternative production method for our kriek. We use fresh, not from concentrate, unsweetened cherry juice which we blend with lambic that is at least one year old before fermenting & macerating for up to 3 days and pasteurising the whole batch.So the corks don't pop. This is the starter Kriek. You might consider the Oude Kriek Cuvée René that I had at The Sovereign as the grown-up version of this beer. This is a sweeter version of the style, using cherry filtrate and a pasteurizing process. If you want an easy introduction to Kriek, this is a good one.This wasn’t our first time trying this fantastically named beer. I’m not sure if Aardwolf would consider “The Bearer of the Cup” to be in the Kriek category, but this red wine barrel-aged blonde ale received a treatment of cherries and raspberries (raspberries are frequently used in lambic fruiting). The cherry definitely plays a dominant role, though, and seems to fall into the Kriek family tree. A distant cousin perhaps. I don’t know that there is such thing as an American Kriek,” shared The Referend Bier Blendery’s founder James Priest. “The serious practitioners are all blessedly making the best beer they can with the best fresh, local fruit they can, rather than forcing stylistic uniformity.” Perhaps it’s more accurate to refer to American attempts at the style as simply spontaneous cherry beers (as one of our examples does) so they don’t carry the weight and history of the Kriek style, which is specifically Belgian. Another Our Mutual Friend beer! The anniversary release from Denver’s OMF was a riff on the traditional Kriek style. Instead of a spontaneously fermented beer, the base for Chêne Cerise was a mixed-culture sour that was aged in a foeder with whole Balaton cherries. Chêne Cerise captures the savory, aggressive flavors of a classic kriek but balances it out with a soft tartness.

The brewery, to this day, is still a family company, run by brothers Nestor and Rene for a long time, [3] before their sons, Dirk and Geert, took over the business, each having a 50% interest in the company.
