Flanders Red Sour Ale with Cherries Aged in New French Oak Barrels
Carefully selected Devil’s Kriek from 2014 aged on Hood River Valley Bing and Vann cherries was given extra time in new French Oak barrels and blended with a small portion of next year’s Kriek. It’s time in the oak gave it more depth and wisdom, and ripened the fruit imparting a sherry and dry red wine character. The blend brings some youth and vivacity of the fruit to the table. With this beer we pay homage to the traditions set before us, and welcome the future ahead.
