AC Golden Brewing Company Kriek

What the brewers say

“Colorado-grown Montmorency sour and Bing sweet cherries went into our Kriek, which is a blend of golden and burgundy sour ales aged for 12 months in wine and bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Cherry aroma with some wild horse-blanket character. Tart cherry, lemon, acidic, cranberry-like tartness.”

Flavor: “Eye-watering tartness that lasts long into the linger. Some sour cherry in the background. The lactic lemon tartness carries through this beer from the start to the finish. Some subtle sweet cherry notes sit behind the lactic tartness while the carbonation helps provide a little warmth in the finish.”

Overall: “Very, very tart. If there were more cherries but the same amount of sweetness it would be perfect for me. If you like mouth-puckering sour candy, then you would like this beer. Enjoyable and left me wanting to drink more.”
