About The Beer
Brewery: Frenchies Bistro & Brewery
Style: Farmhouse Ale
Format: 750ml Bottle
A Kriek - Barrel aged in French oak barrels formerly maturing La Boussole, this red ale has first been fermented clean in stainless steel with a mix of 2 yeast strains. At the end of fermentation it has been transferred into barrels on sweet and sour cherries. Once in barrels, it has aged 6 month with Belgian lactobacillus, pediococus and brettanomyces. After extracting enough oak and cherry character, the barrels have been blended to reach the perfect balance. It is smooth and round with clear confit cherries character, toasted cherry pit, oaky vanilla and funk. It is worth swirling and oxidating in the glass to release it's full presence. This Beer is alive.
