Area Two Experimental Brewing Kriek
What the brewers say
"Aging for two years in French oak delivers a subtle funk accompanied by notes of sour cherry."
What our panel thought
"Smells like cherry pie or cherry juice. Some background fruit esters add depth. Sharply tart, with big cherry flavor from start to finish. Pepper spice in finish. Tart cherry juice with some weird edges. Only passing acknowledgment that this is beer."
What our editors thought
"Sweet almond and punchy, rich, tart cherry drive the nose. The sip wavers between cherry-fruit pleasure and funky Brett-driven austerity, starting juicy and ending in herbal dryness."
